    Dumbledore’s wisdom is an indelible part of my psyche after two decades of eagerly listening to his commanding voice! I love to have a place like this with a snapshot of his best advice. I came searching today, in the face of the heroic fight against Russian invasion by the valiant Ukrainian people. Yes, Dumbledore has a fitting quote for that! (#33 and even #8)
