After all, to the well-organized mind, death is but the next great adventure. ~J.K.

Rowling, "The Man with Two Faces," Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone,
1997, spoken by the character Albus Dumbledore

As much money and life as you could want! The two things most human beings
would choose above all - the trouble is, humans do have a knack of choosing
precisely those things that are worst for them. ~J.K. Rowling, "The Man with
Two Faces," Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, 1997, spoken by the
character Albus Dumbledore

Never trust anything that can think for itself if you can't see where it keeps its
brain. ~J.K. Rowling, "Dobby's Reward," Harry Potter and the Chamber of
Secrets, 1999, spoken by the character Arthur Weasley

Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to
turn on the light. ~Steven Kloves (screenplay), Harry Potter and the Prisoner of
Azkaban, 2004, spoken by the character Albus Dumbledore

In dreams, we enter a world that's entirely our own. ~Steven Kloves (screenplay),
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, 2004, spoken by the character Albus
Dumbledore

It's a strange thing, but when you are dreading something, and would give
anything to slow down time, it has a disobliging habit of speeding up. ~J.K.
Rowling, "The Hungarian Horntail," Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, 2000

I say there are spots that don't come off.... Spots that never come off, d'you know
what I mean? ~J.K. Rowling, "The Egg and The Eye," Harry Potter and the
Goblet of Fire, 2000, spoken by the character Mad-Eye Moody

Nothing like a nighttime stroll to give you ideas. ~J.K. Rowling, "The Egg and
The Eye," Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, 2000, spoken by the character
Mad-Eye Moody

If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his
inferiors, not his equals. ~J.K. Rowling, "Padfoot Returns," Harry Potter and
the Goblet of Fire, 2000, spoken by the character Sirius Black
I sometimes find, and I am sure you know the feeling, that I simply have too
many thoughts and memories crammed into my mind.... At these times... I use
the Pensieve. One simply siphons the excess thoughts from one's mind, pours
them into the basin, and examines them at one's leisure. ~J.K. Rowling, "The
Pensieve," Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, 2000, spoken by the character
Albus Dumbledore

Curiosity is not a sin.... But we should exercise caution with our curiosity... yes,
indeed. ~J.K. Rowling, "The Pensieve," Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire,
2000, spoken by the character Albus Dumbledore

Numbing the pain for a while will make it worse when you finally feel it. ~J.K.
Rowling, "The Parting of the Ways," Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, 2000,
spoken by the character Albus Dumbledore

You place too much importance... on the so-called purity of blood! You fail to
recognize that it matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be!
~J.K. Rowling, "The Parting of the Ways," Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire,
2000, spoken by the character Albus Dumbledore

It is my belief... that the truth is generally preferable to lies. ~J.K. Rowling, "The
Beginning," Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, 2000, spoken by the character
Albus Dumbledore

Differences of habit and language are nothing at all if our aims are identical and
our hearts are open. ~J.K. Rowling, "The Beginning," Harry Potter and the
Goblet of Fire, 2000, spoken by the character Albus Dumbledore

There was no point in worrying yet.... what would come, would come... and he
would have to meet it when it did. ~J.K. Rowling, "The Beginning," Harry Potter
and the Goblet of Fire, 2000

According to Madam Pomfrey, thoughts could leave deeper scarring than almost
anything else... ~J.K. Rowling, "The Second War Begins," Harry Potter and the
Order of the Phoenix, 2003

No, I think I'll just go down and have some pudding and wait for it all to turn
up.... It always does in the end. ~J.K. Rowling, "The Second War Begins," Harry
Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, 2003, spoken by the character Luna
Lovegood

Time is making fools of us again. ~J.K. Rowling, "The Secret Riddle," Harry
Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, 2005, spoken by the character Albus
Dumbledore

We must try not to sink beneath our anguish, Harry, but battle on. ~J.K.
Rowling, "A Sluggish Memory," Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, 2005,
spoken by the character Albus Dumbledore

It was, he thought, the difference between being dragged into the arena to face a
battle to the death and walking into the arena with your head held high. Some
people, perhaps, would say that there was little to choose between the two ways,
but Dumbledore knew - and so do I, thought Harry, with a rush of fierce pride,
and so did my parents - that there was all the difference in the world. ~J.K.
Rowling, "Horcruxes," Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, 2005

It is the unknown we fear when we look upon death and darkness, nothing more.
~J.K. Rowling, "The Cave," Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, 2005,
spoken by the character Albus Dumbledore

Dawn seemed to follow midnight with indecent haste. ~J.K. Rowling, "Magic is
Might," Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, 2007

Harry found the hot drink as welcome as the firewhisky had been on the night
that Mad-Eye had died; it seemed to burn away a little of the fear fluttering in his
chest. ~J.K. Rowling, "The Thief," Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, 2007

"That old berk," muttered Aberforth, taking another swig of mead. "Thought the
sun shone out of my brother's every orifice, he did." ~J.K. Rowling, "The Missing
Mirror," Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, 2007

It is a curious thing, Harry, but perhaps those who are best suited to power are
those who have never sought it. Those who, like you, have leadership thrust upon
them, and take up the mantle because they must, and find to their own surprise
that they wear it well. ~J.K. Rowling, "King's Cross," Harry Potter and the
Deathly Hallows, 2007, spoken by the character Albus Dumbledore
Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that
mean that it is not real? ~J.K. Rowling, "King's Cross," Harry Potter and the
Deathly Hallows, 2007, spoken by the character Albus Dumbledore

The two men appeared out of nowhere, a few yards apart in the narrow, moonlit lane.
For a second they stood quite still, wands pointing at each other's chests: then,
recognising each other, they stowed their wands beneath their cloaks and set off, side
by side, in the same direction.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
First lines from opening chapter, The Dark Lord Ascending.

Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.


Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

NOT MY DAUGHTER, YOU BITCH!


Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
Spoken by Molly Weasley.

We did it, we bashed them, wee Potter's the one,


And Voldy's gone moldy, so now let's have fun!

Peeves' Victory Song.

To the well-organized mind, death is but the next great adventure.


Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

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


Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
Spoken by Albus Dumbledore

The truth is a beautiful and terrible thing, and should therefore be treated with
caution.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
Spoken by Albus Dumbledore.

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
Spoken by Albus Dumbledore.

As much money and life as you could want! The two things most human beings would
choose above all - the trouble is, humans do have a knack of choosing precisely those
things that are worst for them.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
Spoken by Albus Dumbledore.

There is no good or evil: only power and those too weak to seek it.

Ah, music. A magic beyond all we do here!


Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

Fear of a name increases fear of the thing itself.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

The dementors affect you worse than the others because there are horrors in your
past that others don't have.
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Alkaban
Remus Lupin to Harry.

You can exist without your soul, you know, as long as your brain and heart are still
working. But you'll have no sense of self anymore, no memory, no....anything. There's
no chance at all of recovery. You'll just exist. As an empty shell.
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Alkaban
Remus Lupin to Harry.

The consequences of our actions are so complicated, so diverse, that predicting the
future is a very difficult business indeed.
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Alkaban
Spoken by Albus Dumbledore.

You think the dead we loved ever truly leave us? You think that we don't recall them
more clearly than ever in times of great trouble? Your father is alive in you, Harry,
and shows himself plainly when you have need of him.
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Alkaban
Spoken by Albus Dumbledore.

Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn
on the light.
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Alkaban

If you're holding out for universal popularity, I'm afraid you will be in this cabin for a
very long time.

You place too much importance... on the so-called purity of blood! You fail to
recognize that it matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be!
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Spoken by Albus Dumbledore.

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.
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Albus Dumbledore to Hogwart's students.

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.
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

always does in the end.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Spoken by Luna Lovegood.

His priority did not seem to be to teach them what he knew, but rather to impress
upon them that nothing, not even... knowledge, was foolproof.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

You sort of start thinking anything's possible if you've got enough nerve.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Spoken by Ginny Weasley.

The mind is not a book, to be opened at will and examined at leisure. Thoughts are
not etched on the inside of skulls, to be perused by an invader. The mind is a complex
and many-layered thing.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Spoken by Severus Snape.

Indifference and neglect often do much more damage than outright dislike.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

what it was to be young.

Indeed, your failure to understand that there are things much worse than death has
always been your greatest weakness.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Dumbledore to Voldermort.

Harry, suffering like this proves you are still a man! 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
Dumbledore to Harry as he struggles with grief and anger over Sirius's death.

Indifference and neglect often do much more damage than outright dislike ...We
wizards have mistreated and abused our fellows for too long, and we are now reaping
our reward.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Dumbledore to Harry, talking about Sirius's treatment of Kreacher.

He chose the boy he thought most likely to be a danger to him ... and notice this,
Harry. He chose, not the pureblood (which according to his creed, is the only kind of
wizard worth being or knowing), but the half-blood, like himself. He saw himself in
you before he had ever seen you, and in marking you with that scar, he did not kill
you, as he intended, but gave you powers, and a future, which have fitted you to
escape him not once, but four times so far.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Dumbledore to Harry.

An invisible barrier separated him from the rest of the world. He was - he had always
been a marked man.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Time is making fools of us again.


Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Spoken by Albus Dumbledore.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Spoken by Albus Dumbledore.

People find it far easier to forgive others for being wrong than being right.
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Spoken by Albus Dumbledore.
Age is foolish and forgetful when it underestimates youth.
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Dumbledore to Harry.

When you have seen as much of life as I have, you will not underestimate the power
of obsessive love.
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Spoken by Albus Dumbledore.
Dumbledore: Harry Potter Quote
I will only truly have left this school none here are loyal to me... Help will always be given at
Hogwarts to those whoRemember 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. ask for it.
