We gave you five reasons why we love J.K. Rowling. Today we will give you eight inspirational quotes from one of her beloved characters. Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore (oh yes full name needed.)

 

It matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be.

 

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

 

Fear of a name increases fear of the thing itself.

 

Understanding is the first step to acceptance, and only with acceptance can there be recovery.

 

Do not pity the dead… pity the living, and above all, those who live without love.

 

It is the unknown we fear when we look upon death and darkness, nothing more.

 

Words are, in my not so humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic, capable of both influencing injury, and remedying it.

 

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

 

 

 

 

Whether you are a Harris or Gambon fan, we love Dumbledore just the same.
