Five of Albus Dumbledore’s Best Quotes

Albus Dumbledore is probably one of the wisest characters ever written, which comes hand in hand with a large amount of  deep quotes about life, love and much more.

The Harry Potter series is something that is never going to die. The wizarding world created by J.K. Rowling will always be there for us in a book form, film form, or even fanfiction form and of course, it will always have a huge place in our hearts.

We picked our 5 favourite quotes by the Hogwarts headmaster and listed them for you below. It was a hard choice, indeed!


“Don’t pity the dead, Harry. Pity the living and all those living without love.”


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


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


“Numbing the pain for a while will make it worse when you finally feel it.”


“Of course it’s happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?”
