Well this time I decided to take notes on something I always notice as important throughout the series: Dumbledore. Dumbledore, the wise old headmaster of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry always has the most profound things to say, and every move he makes is never executed without severe and earnest thought beforehand. So these are some of the quotes from Dumbledore that I found amazingly profound and applicable to our own lives from Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone:
~ Page 95
"It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live."
"What happened down in the dungeons between you and Professor Quirrell is a complete secret, so, naturally the whole school knows."
"As much money and life as you want! The two things most human beings would choose above all - the trouble is, humans do have a knack of choosing precisely those things which are worst for them."
"...to have been loved so deeply, even though the person who loved us is gone, will give us some protection forever."
I have already commenced my reading of the second book, The Chamber of Secrets; surely more great Dumbledore quotes are to come!
