Harry Potter is for ever because it reminds the milliniels of their childhood. Those days of burnt midnight lamps of reading and re-reading pages after pages of wizardary that JK Rowling spun off of her imagination. It is for ever because it made us all fall all over in love with words, ideas, adventure, friendship, love and above all, magic!
So, in the joyous occasion of another year of not getting over the Harry Potter saga, I present to you some of my favorite Albus Dumbledore quotes of them all.
As Dumbledore would say, “Let the feast begin!”
1. It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.
2. We are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided.
3. Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic.
4. Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.
5. It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.
6. “We must all face the choice between what is right, and what is easy.”
7. Youth can not know how age thinks and feels, but old men are guilty if they forget what it is to be young.
8. It is a curious thing, Harry, but perhaps those who are best suited to power are those who have never sought it.
9. This pain is part of being human . . . the fact that you can feel pain like this is your greatest strength.
10. People find it far easier to forgive others for being wrong than being right.
11. It is important to fight and fight again, and keep fighting, for only then can evil be kept at bay though never quite eradicated.
I’ve left out some of the very popular quotes simply because of the familiarity and also because I believe the ones I’ve chosen here hold deeper meaning to me. However, I would love to know your favorite ones too. In the comments, do let me know of your favorite quotes from the Harry Potter series’.
Until next time… Keep dreaming and achieving!
