Oh, Severus Snape – amazing, amazing character, and one I happen to consider a hero. I know that's a divisive point in the Harry Potter fandom, but no matter what you think of sly Professor Snape, you have to admit that he was unforgettable. I happen to think he was lovable – in a dark and twisty, sharp and pointy way, admittedly. His scenes in the books and the movies are some of my favorites, as are a lot of his quotes. After you read these Snape quotes, I bet you'll love him even more – or maybe you'll decide you love him a little bit for the first time!
This is the best Snape quote of all time, of course. It makes me cry every time.
Actually, Snape probably isn't sorry. Wow, he really had to feel like life dealt him the crappiest hand ever.
It was at this moment that Snape redeemed himself – not for all readers, but for lots of us. A lot of things started making sense, too.
Unless you're Snape, technically. I mean, he kind of did that to Harry. Kind of. Not really, but a little bit.
That's because you were an amazing potions master, Snape. Seriously, though, this line always gives me chills.
When you think about it, this is a really great insult. You should use that on someone. So should I. I know some people who deserve to be on the receiving end of it, too.
That's actually something we should all consider from time to time. Just to make sure we're not asking too much or taking too much for granted.
And this? This is an epic compliment.
That's more impressive than almost anything Voldemort ever did, really.
Snape just had such a way with words. That dry wit, you know? Nobody but Alan Rickman could've done him justice.
This one also gives me chills, every single time. He IS the half-blood prince.
He has his mother's eyes! He has his mother's eyes!!! I die.
Tell me this didn't make you want to study the dark arts, at least a little. They're just so … darkly tempting.
Well, blunt, anyway. To a fault, really.
I can't help it, I find that so sexy.
Nobody did it like Snape. Nobody will ever mock Harry like Snape.
