You Potter fans are going to get a kick out of this week’s list. We’re counting down the Top 5 wisest quotes from one Albus Dumbledore of Harry Potter!

(Let’s get this out of the way first, though)
[All of you who still hold to the antiquated belief that Harry Potter is evil because it has witchcraft in it, do your homework. Harry Potter is a Christian allegory, written by a Christian. Lord of the Rings has wizards, Narnia has magic, Harry Potter has magic and wizards. That is all.]


I shall give the quote, and say how it applies to my life. It’s just that simple!


“As much money and life as you could want: the two things most human beings would choose above all – the trouble is, humans do have a knack of choosing precisely those things that are worst for them.”


It’s true, almost every human, if given two wishes, would choose unlimited money and unlimited time on Earth. The problem? This thinking forfeits the need for eternal life through God. And money? The abundance of that naturally turns one into a corrupt, miserable human being. Put that together and you get…


A corrupt, miserable, immortal, human being. Fun fun!


Study up on your Harry Potter, for tomorrow we shall continue the quest through Dumbledore’s wisdom.
