“It is not our abilities that show who we truly are. It is our choices.”

This quote is very near and dear to me and it has stuck with me for quite a long time. I have used this in my highschool yearbook as a senior quote and use it in my everyday life.

For the context of this quote, Harry has killed the basilisk snake and destroyed Tom Riddle’s diary in the Chamber of Secrets. It is in this scene that Dumbledore says those words.

The meaning of this can vary depending on how you think of it. For example: just because someone has certain abilities, doesn’t mean that’s who they are as a person and we shouldn’t judge people on what they can and can’t do. What truly counts choices, making choices shows how we think, what we believe, and who we are as a person. This quote can be a motivation to show others who we truly are and the things we are capable of.
