Albus Dumbledore on Pain

“If I thought I could help you… by putting you into an enchanted sleep and allowing you to postpone the moment when you would have to think about what has happened tonight, I would do it. But I know better. Numbing the pain for a while will make it worse when you finally feel it…”

— Albus Dumbledore in J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, chapter 36
