Fans are devouringHarry Potter and the Cursed Child like mad, with over 3 million copies sold so far. Now, less than two weeks after its release, Amazon Kindle has released the top 10 most highlighted quotes from the script.

From J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne, and John Tiffany, the latest saga in the Wizarding World was originally written as a a stage play for London’s West End, where it is currently being performed. The story follows the newest generation of wizards as they embark on a totally new adventure. (For more on the plot, see EW’s review and a spoiler-ific deep dive.)

Relive the magic below, with the 10 most popular passages, according to Kindle’s highlights.

  1. Harry, there is never a perfect answer in this messy, emotional world. Perfection is beyond the reach of humankind, beyond the reach of magic. In every shining moment of happiness is that drop of poison: the knowledge that pain will come again. Be honest to those you love, show your pain. To suffer is as human as to breathe.

  2. The truth is a beautiful and terrible thing, and should therefore be treated with great caution.

  3. Those that we love never truly leave us, Harry. There are things that death cannot touch.

  4. Albus Severus, you were named after two headmasters of Hogwarts. One of them was a Slytherin and he was probably the bravest man I ever knew.

  5. All I ever wanted to do was go to Hogwarts and have a mate to get up to mayhem with. Just like Harry Potter. And I got his son. How crazily fortunate is that.

  6. How to distract Scorpius from difficult emotional issues. Take him to a library.

  7. People always look when you three are together. And apart. People always look at you.

  8. Hogwarts will be the making of you, Albus. I promise you, there is nothing to be frightened of there.

  9. A Patronus is a magical charm, a projection of all your most positive feelings, and takes the shape of the animal with whom you share the deepest affinity. It is a gift of light. If you can conjure a Patronus, you can protect yourself against the world. Which, in some of our cases, seems like a necessity sooner rather than later.

  10. If this is your way of saying you want a marital break, Ron, then, to be clear, I will skewer you with this quill.
