First off a huge thank-you to all my 100+ subscribers!
A tribute to Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore (* 1881; † 1997), the greatest headmaster Hogwarts has ever had. The greatest wizard of modern times.
He is one of my 2 favourite characters and I had to make a video about him.
Rowling stated she chose the name Dumbledore, which is an Early Modern English word for "bumblebee", because she "imagined him walking around humming to himself".
Rowling's headmaster at St Michael's School at Winterbourne, Gloucestershire, Alfred Dunn, was the inspiration for Dumbledore. According to the author, Dumbledore is among her favourite characters, and she enjoys writing Dumbledore because he "is the epitome of goodness." Rowling claimed that, if she needs to tell her readers something, Dumbledore speaks for her, as he "knows pretty much everything" about the Harry Potter universe. However, Rowling mentioned Dumbledore regrets "that he has always had to be the one who knew, and who had the burden of knowing. And he would rather not know." As a mentor to the central character Harry Potter, "Dumbledore is a very wise man who knows that Harry is going to have to learn a few hard lessons to prepare him for what may be coming in his life. He allows Harry to get into what he wouldnt allow another pupil to do and he also unwillingly permits Harry to confront things hed rather protect him from." In a 1999 interview, Rowling stated that she imagined Dumbledore "more as a John Gielgud type, you know, quite elderly and - and quite stately." Dumbledore's house affiliation during his time as a student was Gryffindor.
While speaking at Carnegie Hall, New York City on 19 October 2007, Rowling was asked by a young fan whether Dumbledore finds "true love". Rowling said that she always thought of Dumbledore as being gay and that he had fallen in love with Gellert Grindelwald; whether Grindelwald returned his affections, Rowling did not explicitly state. That love, she said, was Dumbledore's "great tragedy." Rowling explains this further by elaborating on the motivations behind Dumbledore's flirtation with the idea of wizard domination of Muggles: "He lost his moral compass completely when he fell in love and I think subsequently became very mistrustful of his own judgement in those matters so became quite asexual. He led a celibate and a bookish life."
-It's the unknown we fear when we look upon death and darkness, nothing more.
-To the well organized mind, death is but the next great adventure.
-You will find that help will always be given at Hogwarts to those who ask for it.
-Oh, by the way. When in doubt, I find retracing my steps to be a wise place to begin. Good luck.
-Welcome! Welcome to another year at Hogwarts. Now, I'd like to say a few things before we all become too befuddled by our excellent feast...
-Let the feast begin.
-It is not our abilities that show who we truly are; it is our choices.
-It is important to fight, and fight again, and keep fighting, for only then can evil be kept at bay, thought never quite eradicated.
-Do not pity the dead, Harry. Pity the living, and, above all, those who live without love.
-You must kill me.
-Now the pain we all feel at this dreadful loss reminds me, and, reminds us, that though we may come from different countries and speak in different tongues, our hearts beat as one.n light of recent events the bonds of friendship we made this year will be more important than ever. Remember that.
-You fail to recognize that it matters not what someone is born, what what they grow to be.
-We are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided.
-No spell can reawaken the dead, I trust you know that. Dark and difficult times lie ahead, Harry. Soon, we must all face the choice between what is right, and what is easy.
-It isn't how you're alike; it's how you're not.
-For in dreams, we enter a world that is entirely our own. Let him swim in the deepest ocean or glide over the highest cloud.
-Ah! Fascinating creatures, Phoenixes!
-It lives in your very skin - What is it? - Love, Harry. Love...
