Character you wish you'd invented
I've talked a lot about the different favorite characters I have in this series and why they are so wonderful. When it comes to one that I wish I'd invented though...that's a little different.
My choice is: Dumbledore
Not only is he just amazing, and the best wizard based on pure talent and knowledge, but could you imagine having those words of wisdom in your own head? I mean, Rowling herself is Dumbledore. She came up with all the brilliant quotes that he's given credit for.
"It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live."
"Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic. Capable of both inflicting injury, and remedying it."
"Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light."
"It matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be."
"It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities."
"People find it far easier to forgive others for being wrong than being right."
"You think the dead we loved truly ever leave us? You think we don't recall them more clearly in times of great trouble?"
"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."
There are many more gems in his quote line-up, but I'll leave you with those today.
