Albus Dumbledore Quotes

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Quotes

It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children. While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places. (Wikia) │ Written by J. K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany

Newt Scamander: Dumbledore, why can't you go?

Albus Dumbledore: I cannot move against Grindelwald. It has to be you. Well, I can't blame you... In your shoes, I'd probably refuse too. (takes the card away from him)

Newt Scamander: What?

Albus Dumbledore: It's late. Good evening, Newt.

Newt Scamander: Wait, no... (Dumbledore disapparates) Oh, come on.

(Dumbledore's hand with the card appears and puts it in Newt's pocket)

Newt Scamander: Dumbledore...

Albus Dumbledore: Do you know why I admire you, Newt? You do not seek power. Nor popularity. You simply ask, "Is a thing right?"

Albus Dumbledore: Address.

Newt Scamander: What's that?

Albus Dumbledore: A safe house in Paris.

Newt Scamander: Why would I need a safe house in Paris?

Albus Dumbledore: Should things, at some point, go terribly wrong, it's good to have a place to go. You know, for a cup of tea.

Albus Dumbledore: Muggles are not lesser. Not disposable.

Newt Scamander: I'm scared, Professor Dumbledore.

Albus Dumbledore: Everyone is scared of something.

Albus Dumbledore: Well done, Slytherin. However, recent events must be taken into account. And I have a few last-minute points to award. To Miss Hermione Granger, for the cool use of intellect... while others were in grave peril... 50 points. Second, to Mr. Ronald Weasley, for the best-played game of chess that Hogwarts has seen these many years, 50 points. And third... to Mr. Harry Potter... for pure nerve and outstanding courage... I award Gryffindor house 60 points. Finally, it takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to your enemies... but a great deal more to stand up to your friends. I award 10 points... to Neville Longbottom. Assuming that my calculations are correct I believe... that a change of decoration is in order. Gryffindor wins the house cup.


Albus Dumbledore: Harry, do you know why... Professor Quirrell couldn't bear to have you touch him? It was because of your mother. She sacrificed herself for you. And that kind of act leaves a mark. (Harry touches his scar) No, this kind of mark cannot be seen. It lives in your very skin.

Harry Potter: What is it?

Albus Dumbledore: Love, Harry. Love.

Albus Dumbledore (to Harry): What happened down in the dungeons between you and Professor Quirrell is a complete secret. So, naturally, the whole school knows.


Minerva McGonagall: Albus, do you really think it's safe, leaving him with these people? I've watched them all day. They're the worst sort of Muggles, imaginable. They really are...

Albus Dumbledore: The only family he has.

Minerva McGonagall: This boy will be famous. There won't be a child in our world who doesn't know his name.

Albus Dumbledore: Exactly. He's far better off growing up away from all of that. Until he's ready.


Minerva McGonagall: Do you think it wise to trust Hagrid with something as important as this?

Albus Dumbledore: Ah, Professor, I would trust Hagrid with my life.


Albus Dumbledore: Those that we love never truly leave us, Harry. There are things that death cannot touch. Paint . . . and memory . . . and love.

Albus Dumbledore: Perfection is beyond the reach of humankind, beyond the reach of magic.


Albus Dumbledore: We cannot protect the young from harm. Pain must and will come.
