21 Inspirational Dumbledore Quotes You Must Read Today

Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore is one of the wisest literary characters of all time. His words offer wisdom and a humble perspective to all of those around him (but usually Harry). Even though Dumbledore is fictional, I believe all of his quotes can be applied to real life, and encourage us to be better people. Here are his best ones.


"Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic. Capable of both inflicting injury, and remedying it."

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

"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 to be."

"People find it far easier to forgive others for being wrong than being right."

"You think the dead we loved truly ever leave us? You think we don't recall them more clearly in times of great trouble?"

"It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends."

"We must all face the choice between what is right, and what is easy."


"It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities."

"For in dreams we enter a world that is entirely our own."

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

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


"It is the unknown we fear when we look upon death and darkness. Nothing more."

"To the well organized mind, death is but the next great adventure."
"It is a curious thing, Harry, but perhaps those who are best suited to power are those who have never sought it."


"Let us step out into the night and pursue that flighty temptress, adventure."


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


"The trouble is, humans do have a knack of choosing precisely those things that are worst for them."

"We must try not to sink beneath our anguish... but battle on."


"Age is foolish and forgetful when it underestimates youth."

"It's not how you are alike. It's how you are not..."

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
