Favorite Quotes by Albus Dumbledore

“I believe your friends Misters Fred and George Weasley were responsible for trying to send you a toilet seat. No doubt they thought it would amuse you.”
 ————————————————– “By all means continue destroying my possessions. I daresay I have too many.”

 ————————————————– “Your mother died to save you. If there is one thing Voldemort cannot understand, it is love.” 

————————————————– “Don’t be silly, Dawlish. I’m sure you are an excellent Auror, I seem to remember you achieved ‘Outstanding’ in all your N.E.W.T.s, but if you attempt to — er — ‘bring me in’ by force, I will have to hurt you.” 

————————————————– “To our newcomers,” said Dumbledore in a ringing voice, stretching his hands wide and a beaming smile on his lips, “welcome! To our old hands — welcome back! There is a time for speech-making, and this is not it. Tuck in!” 

————————————————– “I will only truly have left this school when none here are loyal to me… Help will always be given at Hogwarts to those who ask for it.” 

————————————————– “To the well organized mind, death is but the next great adventure.” 

————————————————– “It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.” ————————————————– “Fear of a name increases fear of a thing itself.” ————————————————– “Humans have a knack for choosing precisely the things that are worst for them.” ————————————————– “Remember Cedric. Remember, if the time should come when you have to make a choice between what is right and what is easy, remember what happened to a boy who was good, and kind, and brave, because he strayed across the path of Lord Voldemort. Remember Cedric Diggory.” ————————————————– “I don’t need a cloak to become invisible.” ————————————————– “Nitwit! Blubber! Oddment! Tweak!” ————————————————– “It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.” ————————————————– “I could break out, of course, but what a waste of time, and frankly I can think of a whole host of things I’d rather be doing.” ————————————————– “Scars can come in handy. I have one myself above my left knee that is a perfect map of the London Underground.” ————————————————– “I seem to remember telling you both that I would have to expel you if you broke any more school rules,” said Dumbledore. Ron opened his mouth in horror. “Which goes to show that the best of us must sometimes eat our words.” ————————————————– “…I took a wrong turn on the way to the bathroom and found myself in a beautifully proportioned room I had never seen before, containing a really rather magnificent collection of chamberpots. When I went back to investigate more closely, I discovered that the room had vanished. But I must keep an eye out for it. Possibly it is only accessible at five thirty in the morning. Or it may only appear at the quarter moon – or when the seeker has an exceptionally full bladder.” ————————————————– “Harry, I owe you an explanation,” said Dumbledore. “An explanation of an old man’s mistakes. For I see now that what I have done, and not done, with regard to you, bears all the hallmarks of the failings of age. Youth cannot know how age thinks and feels. But old men are guilty if they forget what it was to be young…and I seem to have forgotten lately.” ————————————————– “Ah, music,” he said, wiping his eyes. “A magic far beyond all we do here! And now, bedtime. Off you trot!” ————————————————– “…in the light of Voldemort’s return, we are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided. Lord Voldemort’s gift for spreading discord and enmity is very great. We can fight it only by showing an equally strong bond of friendship and trust. Differences of habit and language are nothing at all if our aims are identical and our hearts are open.” ————————————————– “You fail to recognize that it matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be.” ————————————————– “Harry, Cedric, I suggest you both go up to bed,” said Dumbledore, smiling at both of them. “I am sure Gryffindor and Hufflepuff are waiting to celebrate with you, and it would be a shame to deprive them of this excellent excuse to make a great deal of mess and noise.” ————————————————– “Alas! Ear wax!” ————————————————– “It’s lucky it’s dark…I haven’t blushed so much since Madame Pomfrey told me she liked my new earmuffs.” ————————————————– “I see a light in the kitchen. Let us not deprive Molly any longer of the chance to deplore how thin you are.” ————————————————– “The shock of her desertion may have contributed to his early death – or perhaps he had simply never learned to feed himself.” ————————————————– “No, I was merely reading the Muggle magazines,” said Dumbledore. “I do love knitting patterns.” ————————————————– “And now Harry, let us step out into the night and pursue that flighty temptress, adventure.” ————————————————– “I am not worried, Harry,” said Dumbledore, his voice a little stronger despite the freezing water. “I am with you.” ————————————————– “For future reference, Harry, it is raspberry…although of course, if I were a Death Eater, I would have been sure to research my own jam preferences before impersonating myself.” ————————————————– “I take my hat off to you–or I would, if I were not afraid of showering you with spiders.”————————————————— “It is a long time since my last visit,” said Dumbledore, peering down his crooked nose at Uncle Vernon. “I must say, your agapanthuses are flourishing.” ————————————————— “–yet, sadly, accidental rudeness occurs alarmingly often. Best to say nothing at all, my dear man.” ————————————————— “I would assume that you were going to offer me refreshment, but the evidence so far suggests that that would be optimistic to the point of foolishness.” ————————————————— “Time is making fools of us again.” ————————————————— “It’s the unknown we fear when we look upon death and darkness, nothing more.” ————————————————— “In fact, being – forgive me – rather cleverer than most men, my mistakes tend to be correspondingly huger.” ————————————————— “Well, it’s just that you seem to be labouring under the delusion that I am going to – what is the phrase? – come quietly. I am afraid I am not going to come quitely at all, Cornelius.” ————————————————— “I’m sorry Harry; I should have said, he [Voldemort] would not want to immediately kill the person who reached the island.” ————————————————— “Oh, you know about Nicolas?” said Dumbledore, sounding quite delighted. “You did do the thing properly, didn’t you?” ————————————————— “It is important to fight, and fight again, and keep fighting, for only then can evil be kept at bay, though never quite eradicated.” ————————————————— “There are all kinds of courage. It takes a great deal of courage to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends.” ————————————————— “We must try not to sink beneath our anguish, Harry, but battle on.” ————————————————— “Don’t count your owls before they are delivered.” ————————————————— “Ah, Harry, how often this happens, even between the best of friends! Each of us believes that what he has to say is much more important than anything the other might have to contribute!” ————————————————— “Voldemort himself created his own worst enemy, just as tyrants everywhere do! Have you any idea how much tyrants fear the people they oppress?” ————————————————— “There is nothing to be feared from a body, Harry, any more than there is anything to be feared from the darkness.” ————————————————— “He cannot kill you if you are already dead.” ————————————————— “From this point forth, we shall be leaving the firm foundation of fact and journeying together through the murky marshes of memory into thickets of wildest guesswork.” ————————————————— “Severus…please…” ————————————————— “What happened down in the dungeons between you and Professor Quirrell is a complete secret, so, naturally the whole school knows.” ————————————————— “–Witness for the defense, Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore.” ————————————————— “Excellent, excellent.” ————————————————— “You disgust me.” ————————————————— “Harry must not know, not until the last moment, not until it is necessary, otherwise how could he have the strength to do what must be done?” ————————————————— “That which Voldemort does not value, he takes no trouble to comprehend. Of house-elves and children’s tales, of love, loyalty, and innocence, Voldemort knows and understands nothing. Nothing. That they all have a power beyond his own, a power beyond the reach of any magic, is a truth he has never grasped.” ————————————————— “Do not pity the dead, Harry. Pity the living, and, above all, those who live without love. By returning, you may ensure that fewer souls are maimed, fewer families are torn apart. If that seems to you a worthy goal, then we say good-bye for the present.” ————————————————– “Tell me one last thing,” said Harry. “Is this real? Or has this been happening inside my head?”“Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?”
