Become Inspired by Albus Dumbledore

29 Dumbledore Quotes That Will Inspire You to Do Magical Things” by Hilary White is a compilation of quotes by Albus Dumbledore, beloved Headmaster of Hogwarts and grand wizard. His wisdom (or should we say, J.K. Rowling’s) might come in handy… For example, and because 7 is a magical number:

  1. “It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends.” — Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
  2. “Numbing the pain for a while will make it worse when you finally feel it.” — Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
  3. “This pain is part of being human . . . the fact that you can feel pain like this is your greatest strength.” — Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
  4. “Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” — Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
  5. “Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?” — Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
  6. “Youth can not know how age thinks and feels, but old men are guilty if they forget what it is to be young.” — Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
  7. “The best of us sometimes eat our words.” — Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

“Luna had decorated her bedroom ceiling with five beautifully painted faces: Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny, and Neville. They were not moving as the portraits at Hogwarts moved, but there was a certain magic about them all the same; Harry thought they breathed. What appeared to be fine golden chains wove around the pictures, linking them together, but after examining them for a minute or so, Harry realized that the chains were actually one word, repeated a thousand times in golden ink: friends…friends…friends…friends… Harry felt a great rush of affection for Luna” – Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
