Harry is known for saying some of the strangest things sometimes, but he is also known for saying some amazing things as well. If you’re in the One Direction fandom or if you’re just a fan of Harry, then you would know that he has some of the best quotes ever. This week we are celebrating his birthday, so what’s a better way than celebrating his words too? Here are 22 of Harry’s best quotes!
22. On a world without music.
“That’s the amazing thing about music, there’s a song for every emotion. Can you imagine a world with no music? It would suck and I’d still be a baker.”
21. On fame.
“I think it’s not that hard, if you can take a step back from it and kinda see [fame] for what it is, then you don’t start believing that this is just life.”
20. On the fans being incredible.
“The fans just continue to be absolutely incredible. They just surprise us all the time with just how amazing that they are.”
19. On not finding anything that feels as good as performing.
‘’I don’t think I’ve found anything that feels as good as performing. It’d be fun to try and find it.’’
18. On loving yourself.
“Everyone should love themselves & shouldn’t strive for perfection.”
17. On building character.
“I think you shouldn’t be scared about embarrassing yourself… I think it builds character.”
16. On hoping everyone enjoys 1D shows.
“I think we’ve now been touring for a couple of years, and I think for us it’s just really, we have so much fun doing it, so we just want to make sure that, kind of, everyone has a good time, and that, I think, we just try and make sure that if you’re not necessarily the biggest fan, but you bring someone or you’re coming with someone, we just want everyone to have a good time, and to go away and say, you know, whether you’re a huge fan or not, um, say I, you know, I really enjoyed the show. And obviously, if you are a fan, we really hope that you enjoy the show because we love you more than those other people.”
15. On doing whatever makes you the happiest.
“I want you to do whatever makes you happiest in this world.”
14. On never getting used to people screaming at him.
“You’re never going to get used to walking into a room and have people screaming at you. There are a lot of things that come with the life you could get lost in. But you have to let it be what it is. I’ve learnt not to take everything too seriously.”
13. On fans being so powerful.
“I think it’s quite amazing to see. There are a lot of people, everyone knows that they’re very dedicated on social media and go to shows and stuff like that. But it’s cool to see when you bring up really important issues, to see how people react to them and they come in and show how much they care and show how much they want to make a difference and change things. It’s cool to see the fans be so powerful in a different way. Not just voting for things or tweeting about things, it’s amazing to see them be passionate about things that are obviously really important.”
12. On listening to the haters.
“Don’t listen to the haters!”
11. Just because you don’t understand it, that doesn’t it’s crazy.
“I think looking in, not everyone can understand it but to that girl or that boy, it might be the most important thing in the world. Just because you don’t understand it, doesn’t mean you can say it’s crazy.”
10. At One Direction’s last OTRA concert in 2015.
“Please don’t forget us, we will always be here for you, you guys are the most incredible fans.”
9. On One Direction celebrating love.
“Here in One Direction we love to celebrate love, and love is love.”
8. On being careful what you say online.
“Tweet as if your grandma is gonna read it.”
7. On making people feel better about themselves.
“Any time that you can make someone who potentially might not feel as great about themselves as they should, feel better about themselves, I think that’s always a positive thing.”
6. On having good family and friends around him.
“I’ve got a really good family, I’ve got great friends around me.”
5. At the first OTRA concert after Zayn Malik left One Direction.
“Tonight was a big deal for us and what you’ve done tonight has meant so much to us. We love you.”
4. On if everyone was a little bit nicer in the world.
“If everyone was a little bit nicer to people, the world would be a much better place. You have a choice where you can either be all right to someone or you can be a little bit nicer, and that can make someone’s day.”
3. On “dating” every girl he is seen with.
“I have a lot of friends and some of them are girls and apparently I’m dating all of them’’
2. On hating the word “famous.”
“I feel like when people label people as famous, they take away a lot of substance that they have as a person. So you don’t remember someone as ‘He was funny’, or ‘They were really nice and giving’. It’s like ‘They were famous’, and then it becomes a thing where anything after that, whatever you choose to do afterwards… if it’s not as famous, or more famous than it was before. it’s considered a failure. And that’s a shame, because it’s not a failure, always.”
1. His X Factor audition.
“I’m Harry Styles, I’m sixteen and I’m from Holmes Chapel in Cheshire.”
Happy 22nd Birthday Harry!
