QP: Albus Dumbledore

Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore

QP is a new segment on JupiterCity and QP stands for Quote Profile.  It’s pretty self-explanatory — Each post I choose a different person or character and take a bunch of quotes from that person.  Enjoy!

“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

(to Harry) “It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.”  –Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

“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

(to Voldemort) “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

“That which Voldemort does not value, he takes no trouble to comprehend.  Of house-elves and children’s tales, of love, loyalty, and innocence, Voldemort knows and understands nothing.  Nothing.  That they all have a power beyond his own, a power beyond the reach of any magic, is a truth he has never grasped.” –Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

This is only a snippet of Dumbledore’s wise words, some from the books and some from the movie adaptions.

Random Fact:  *Dumbledore’s given names could be interpreted as representing the four primary divisions of the British Isles:  Albus may be the masculine form of “Alba”, the Gaelic name for Scotland.  Percival is a legendary Arthurian knight from Wales involved in the Grail quest.  Wulfric is an Anglo-Saxon name found in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle and could be representative of England.  Brian is the name of the legendary Irish high-king and hero Brian Boru who defeated the Vikings at the Battle of Clontarf near Dublin.*
