Professor Remus Lupin Quotes

Professor Remus Lupin (10 March, 1960 – 2 May, 1998)

Remus was born on 10 March, 1960 to Mr. and Mrs. Lupin. Little is known about his life as a human. At an early age, Remus was bitten by the werewolf Fenrir Greyback, after his father insulted Greyback, and became a werewolf himself. His parents did everything that they could in order to try to find a cure for him, but there was no cure. Although he and his parents were unsure of the safety of allowing him to attend school at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, the Headmaster, Professor Albus Dumbledore, did not see why he could not attend and encouraged him to become a student.  During his school years, he was one of the Marauders; best friends with James Potter, Sirius Black, and Peter Pettigrew. Together they created the Marauder’s Map. After Hogwarts, Remus and his friends joined the Order of the Phoenix and fought in the First Wizarding War. However, Pettigrew betrayed James and Lily Potter to Lord Voldemort, out of fear. Remus lost all of his closest friends in various ways by the end of the First Wizarding War, though he and Sirius Black later reclaimed their friendship.

Professor Lupin

Exactly the point. Fudge isn’t in his right mind. It’s been twisted and warped by fear. Now fear makes people do terrible things, Harry. The last time Voldemort gained power he almost destroyed everything we hold most dear. Now he’s returned, and I’m afraid the Minister will do almost anything to avoid facing that terrifying truth.

103 – Harry Potter Quote by Professor Remus Lupin

Professor Lupin

The very first time I saw you Harry, I recognized you immediately. Not by your scar, by your eyes. They’re your mother; Lily’s. Yes, I knew her. You mother was there for me at a time when no one else was. Not only was she a singularly gifted witch, she was also an uncommonly kind woman. She had a way of seeing the beauty in others, even, and perhaps most especially, when that person couldn’t see it in themselves. Your father, James, however, had a certain, shall we say, talent for trouble. A talent, rumor has it, he passed onto you. You’re more like them then you know, Harry. In time you’ll come to see just how much.

106 – Harry Potter Quote by Professor Remus Lupin

Professor Lupin

Listen, dementors are among the foulest creatures to walk this earth. They feed on every good feeling, every happy memory until a person is left with nothing but his worst experiences. The dementors affect you more than others because there are true horrors in your past, horrors your classmates can scarcely imagine. You are not weak, Harry. You have nothing to be ashamed of.
