Quote by J.K. Rowling: “You think the dead we loved ever truly leave us...”
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
The chapter that made us fall in love with... Albus Dumbledore
Harry Potter is a story of bravery, friendship, magic, and adventure. But above all else, the series is a story about the power of love. It's a theme that runs deep in each book, and the importance and strength of the sentiment is a lesson Albus Dumbledore more than anyone else emphasizes countless times. It is because of a mother's love that Harry Potter is the Boy Who Lived, and it's because of love that Dumbledore watches over that boy and tries to protect him from his terrible fate. He once reminded Harry not to pity the dead but to "pity the living and above all, those who live without love. If love meant so much to one of the greatest wizards of all time, what did he really know of it? What about Dumbledore's own personal love story?
He was the headmaster of Hogwarts for a reason. Jul 15, Whenever we are dealing with difficult news, there is one Harry Potter character we like to turn to for comforting words. Albus Dumbledore, the Headmaster. Dumbledore sped down the steps past Neville and Harry, who had no more thought of leaving. Dumbledore was already at the foot of the steps when the Death Eaters nearest realized he was there. There were yells; one of the Death Eaters ran for it, scrabbling like a monkey up the stone steps opposite.

The Harry Potter series, summed up, is about love. The power of a mother's love saved Harry from dying the night his parents did. Snape's love for Lily kept Harry safe. Harry's ability to love became his biggest strength. The list can go on. Rowling taught us all from a young age that the power of love should never be underestimated.
