The wisdom of Dumbledore

Leave a comment

If you’re a Potterhead you’ll know how in times of distress, the only man you would want to be with is Albus Dumbledore. The wise old Albus Dumbledore, Headmaster at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizandry, somehow has all the right words to say. Every time your head is clouded with confusion or grief, you’ll remember an Albus Dumbledore quote and be assured everything is going to be alright.

Albus Dumbledore has taught us life lessons that prove we’ll never meet a man as prudent, practical, and sensible as him. The flowing white beard is symbolic of all the wisdom in the world the wizard has gained in his lifetime. If you ever feel low, here are 20 quotes from Albus Dumbledore that can brighten your day.

“After all to the well organized mind, death is but the next great adventure.”

 

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

 

“Differences of habit and language are nothing at all if our aims are identical and our hearts are open.”

 

“Those who have leadership thrust upon them, and take up the mantle because they must, and find to their own surprise that they wear it well.”

 

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

 

“It is important to fight and fight again, and keep fighting, for only then can evil be kept at bay, though never quite eradicated.”

 

“Dark times lie ahead of us and there will be a time when we must choose between what is easy and what is right.”

 

“It is our choices…that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”

 

“It’s the unknown we fear when we look upon death and darkness, nothing more.”

 

“It is my belief that the truth is generally preferable to lies.”

 

“Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”

 

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

 

“Differences of habit and language are nothing at all if our aims are identical and our hearts are open.”

 

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

 

“We are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided.”

 

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

 

“For in dreams we enter a world that is entirely our own. Let them swim in the deepest ocean or glide over the highest cloud.”

 

“It is a curious thing but perhaps those who are best suited to power are those who have never sought it.”

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

General Events:
Harry Potter’s Birthday
July 31, 2014 in the World
 
If you’re a Potterhead, then you already know that July 31 is Harry Potter’s birthday! (Not surprisingly, it is also the birthday of J.K. Rowling, Harry’s literary creator.) If you haven’t already planned your festivities for the day, it’s not too late. Perhaps you can celebrate by settling in with your closest friends and enjoying a Harry Potter movie marathon.
 
You can be the envy of all your other Potterhead friends by serving up some delicious Harry Potter treats like acid pops, licorice wands or jelly slugs.
 
Mutt’s Day 2014
July 31, 2014 in the World
Mutt’s Day is observed on July 31, 2014. A mongrel, mutt, or mixed-breed dog is a dog that belongs to no single organizationally recognized breed and is not the result of selective breeding. Mutt is commonly used in the U.S.A and Canada, often in an affectionate manner.
When breeds mix, their offspring manifest a wide variety of appearances; some resembling one breed closely, while others clearly exhibit features of both. However, as mixed breeds continue to interbreed, subsequent generations moderate toward a roughly similar appearance.

National Jump for Jelly Beans Day
July 31, 2014 in the USA
It’s National Jump for Jelly Beans Day! Today, we encourage candy-lovers everywhere to jump for joy and show your appreciation for jelly beans. These tiny candies evolved from an ancient confection called “Turkish delight,” which was one of the earliest forms of hard candy. Our modern-day jelly beans gained popularity during the American Civil War. A candy company in Boston began marketing jelly beans as the perfect treat to send to soldiers, and soon everyone was hooked. One of the most famous jelly bean fans is President Ronald Reagan. He served them at his inauguration!
To celebrate National Jump for Jelly Beans Day, treat yourself to a delicious handful of jelly beans. Jump for joy when you stumble upon your favorite flavor!
