Never use a big word when a diminutive phrase can be utilized.

Uh oh. It looks like Fred and George have been trying to teach some spells to the First-Year students. Unfortunately, someone has managed to cast an Engorgio Charm on the speech of everyone in the castle and now people everywhere are speaking in superlatives! It seems that they need your help in undoing the spell. Are you up for the challenge?

TASK

Your task is to decipher each quote below. Along with the deciphered quote, you must also state which character said those words, and which Harry Potter book/movie the quote is from.
1.It is my deepest aspiration that you are magnanimously bedazzled with your individual expression of who you are. It is possible that all members present could have found themselves decimated – or most adversely, relegated to depart from these premises.

2.It does not bode advantageously to ruminate on mental imagery while being in a state of soporific existence and consign to obliviation the need to exist.

3.You are minusculely redoubtable intermittently, were you cognizant of that? Sagacious, but redoubtable.

4.One must have an enormous reserve of indomitability to oppose adversaries, but an equal amount to confront kindred spirits.

5.Perturbation of a nomenclature singularly aggrandizes perturbation of the subject matter itself.

6.Personal preferences illuminate the true essence of our being, appreciably extraneous to our proficiencies.

7.Jouissance can subsist even in the most tenebrous of epochs, if an individual simply recalls the ability to activate the luminary.

8.Absolutely it is occurring within the inner recesses of your cerebral skeletal structure, but why on this terrestrial planet is it obliged to denote that it is not irrefutable?

9.Nocturnal and treacherous allotment of days precede us. Momentarily we must confront the options of what is morally obligatory and what is unburdensome.

10.There is both luminosity and obscurity in the confines of our being. The important essential element is the component where we confront and commit to a particular endeavor. In essence, it reflects our essential entity.

RULES

-Your entry must include:
Correct quote! -- Who said it? -- In which Harry Potter book or movie?

Thank you VERY much for answering! I've always wondered about it and never entered for fear of doing the wrong thing and horning in on the Newbies fun.

I am stuck with one of them. It sounds familiar but I can't, for the life of me, figure out the correct original quote. I'm disappointed with myself.

What if the characters who say the quotes differ between book and film? Same with the actual book/film itself?

Please tag.

This is pretty hard actually. I'm not sure I'll be able to fetch them all but I love a challenge. Also wondering about the question AccioNox brought forth.

Okay, now I'm worried because I used books only for my entry and there is one that indeed is said by someone else in movies... 😕

But yeah. I see you'll be accepting both answers so I'm slightly less worried now. Great contest 😁😁

@MsVera As stated 2 posts above your post, if more that 1 character stated the quote, they will all be counted as a correct answer. Meaning if Character 1 made the quote in the book and Character 2 made the quote in the movie, then naming either one of those 2 characters will be correct.

Thank you for the clarification and tag ^__^ I appreciate it. I sent in my answers. It was nice to juggle with these quotes, if I didn't have such a bad memory I'd certainly try to memorize them all because they sound more fancy than the original. Haha~
