Albus Dumbledore Quotes

Every Harry Potter Fan by now knows that the most philosophical quotes in the book come from the oldest and wisest character, Albus Dumbledore. His quotes are so beautiful at times, that it gives me hope for life, and moves me to tears. I think one day, I want to get a Dumbledore tattoo :’D that would be pretty awesome I guess. I mean why not? Since people tattoo some random words in chinese, or philosophical sentences in arabic. One could say that 1000 years from now, J.K. Rowling’s could be the new Sokrates :D so, why not a Dumbledore Tattoo? Of course, you would have to chose the right one. Here are my most favorite quotes from him (her?)

“Dark times lie ahead of us and there will be a time when we must choose between what is easy and what is right.”

“Humans have a knack for choosing precisely the things that are worst for them.”

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

“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.”

“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.”

“Ah, music,” he said, wiping his eyes. “A magic far beyond all we do here!”

“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.”

“It’s the unknown we fear when we look upon death and darkness, nothing more.”

“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.”

“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.”

““Do not pity the dead, Harry. Pity the living, and, above all, those who live without love.”

“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?” ”

“Happiness can be found in the darkest of times, if only one remembers to turn on the light.”

“We are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided.”

“Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic. Capable of both inflicting injury and remedying it.”

“Perhaps those who are best suited for power are those who have never sought it.”

“Age is foolish and forgetful when it underestimates youth.”
