- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

Albus Dumbledore, beloved Headmaster of the “Harry Potter” series, is known for his words of wisdom and whimsy. In fact, these inspiring words sound quite familiar to inspiring gospel truths taught in General Conference. Here are 10 Dumbledore quotes and their Conference counterparts. 


“Differences of habit and language are nothing at all if our aims are identical and our hearts are open.” – Albus Dumbledore

“Unity does not require sameness, but it does require harmony. We can have our hearts knit together in love, be one in faith and doctrine, and still cheer for different teams, disagree on various political issues, debate about goals and the right way to achieve them, and many other such things.” – D. Todd Christofferson | One in Christ


“It matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be.” – Albus Dumbledore

“God cares a lot more about who we are and who we are becoming than about who we once were.4 He cares that we keep on trying.” – Dale G. Renlund | Latter-day Saints Keep on Trying


“To the well-organized mind, death is but the next great adventure.” – Albus Dumbledore

“Mortality is but a stepping-stone to a more glorious existence in the future. The sorrow of death is softened with the promise of the Resurrection.” – Gordon B. Hinckley | The Things of Which I Know


“It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.” – Albus Dumbledore

“Each day is a day of decision, and our decisions determine our destiny.” – Russell M. Nelson | Decisions for Eternity


“Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” – Albus Dumbledore

“What we insistently desire, over time, is what we will eventually become and what we will receive in eternity.” – Neal A. Maxwell | According to the Desires of Our Hearts


“We must all face the choice between what is right, and what is easy.” – Albus Dumbledore

“May we ever choose the harder right instead of the easier wrong.” – Thomas S. Monson | Choices


“You think the dead we loved truly ever leave us? You think we don’t recall them more clearly in times of great trouble?” – Albus Dumbledore

“We are closely related to our kindred, to our ancestors, to our friends and associates and co-laborers who have preceded us into the spirit world. I claim that we live in their presence, they see us, they are solicitous for our welfare, they love us now more than ever. For now they see the dangers that beset us; they can comprehend better than ever before, the weaknesses that are liable to mislead us into dark and forbidden paths. They see the temptations and evils that beset us in life and the proneness of mortal beings to yield to temptation and wrong doing; hence their solicitude for us and their love for us and their desire for our well being must be greater than that which we feel for ourselves.” – Joseph F. Smith | General Conference, April 1916


“We are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided.” – Albus Dumbledore

“In order to reach our sublime destiny, we need each other, and we need to be unified.” – Reyna I. Aburto | With One Accord


“It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends.” – Albus Dumbledore

“May we ever be courageous and prepared to stand for what we believe, and if we must stand alone in the process, may we do so courageously, strengthened by the knowledge that in reality we are never alone when we stand with our Father in Heaven.” – Thomas S. Monson | Dare to Stand Alone


“Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.” – Albus Dumbledore

The increasing darkness that accompanies tribulation makes the light of Jesus Christ shine ever brighter.” – Russell M. Nelson | Hear Him
