Albus Dumbledore on Character

“You are blinded…by the love of the office you hold, Cornelius! You place too much importance, and you always have done, on the so-called purity of blood! You fail to recognize that it matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be!”

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