Harry Potter Inspirational Quote
“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.”
Book: Sorcerer’s Stone
Who said it: Albus Dumbledore
Context: Upon finding Harry gazing longingly into the Mirror of Erised — which shows anyone who looks into it their deepest desire — Dumbledore tells Harry that he is going to move the mirror before warning him not to go searching for it again. The headmaster’s words are a reminder that dwelling on what might have been in the past or what could be in the future distracts from living in the present moment.
