dumbledore quote

  • Umbridge: [to Dumbledore, about the DA] So here's the deal. You do with your depressing little group of kids what I did with my wealthy, elderly mother: Euthanize it. It's their time.
  • Harry: Did you know I was a Horcrux?
  • Dumbledore: I had an inkling.
  • Harry: You don’t keep inklings to yourself! You share them! You’re like hey guy, I got an inkling you’re a Horcrux and you have to die! That’s what friends do, that’s common knowledge, it’s in the damn handbook!
Sometimes I wish my boys would do the normal teenage rebellion things like drugs or tattoos. That I could handle. But no, they have to send home a toilet seat instead.
—  Molly Weasley [When her sons sent her a toilet seat signed by Albus Dumbledore]
  • Dumbledore: The dark forest is forbidden to all students.
  • Dumbledore: Except for Detention
  • Dumbledore: Where you will be forced to enter when its the darkest and scariest
  • Dumbledore: It makes so much sense
  • Dumbledore: I am so good at making rules
  • Dumbledore: Fifty points to Dumbledore
  • Hermione: Did you find out anything from Dumbledore?
  • Harry: Not much—only hints and riddles.
  • Hermione: Did you ask about your scar hurting?
  • Harry: We didn’t discuss it.
  • Hermione: You should have. I am sure it is very important.
  • Harry: In that case I am sure Dumbledore would have refused to explain it.
  • McGonagall: You are irrationally angry 365 days a year.
  • Snape: Well, that's just your personal opinion because I don't have anger issues! Do you think I have anger issues, Dumbledore?
  • Dumbledore: Well, I wouldn't really call it an issue... An issue is something you can fix.
