Albus Dumbledore on Unity

“Every guest in this Hall… will be welcomed back here at any time, should they wish to come, I say to you all, once again—in the light of Lord Voldemort’s return, we are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided.

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!”
