‘There are all kinds of courage,’ said Dumbledore, smiling. ‘It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends. I therefore award ten points to Mr. Neville Longbottom.’
I just realized today how much more meaningful this quote is when you remember Dumbledore’s backstory. For years, Albus remained at Gellert Grindelwald’s side even as Grindelwald became more and more corrupt, simply because he was his friend. He turned a blind eye to the immorality of Gellert’s plans. He couldn’t bring himself to stand up to Grindelwald because he didn’t want to jeopardize their friendship. Even as an adult, he didn’t confront Grindelwald until it was nearly too late. Those ten points weren’t awarded to Neville just so Gryffindor would win the house cup. They were awarded because Dumbledore recognized that Neville, at the age of 11, was far braver than the young Albus had ever been. (via cobbledstories)
Nor am I, but I’m rather disappointed in myself for not scoring higher on Advocate and Creative. I’d rather have tied for those two in third place than I would have gotten Intellectual. I didn’t look at the types before taking the quiz.
Honestly I thought I would get “Advocate” way before I’d ever get Caregiver, but at the same time I’m not entirely surprised by these results. (Especially creative and spiritual)
On a side note I love how these colors are like a more subdued version of a certain pink mini-horse.
Am not surprised with the results xP
Hey, lookie that! Still got some athlete in meh :D
I’m more cerebral than I want to be. Sometimes I think I need to get crazy. Go to Vegas. Do some drugs. Get some hookers. Gamble it all away. And it never happens. I usually just end up at home on my couch—reading.
