To Harry Potter in The Chamber of Secrets: ‘It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.’

And to Cornelius Fudge, Minister of Magic, in The Goblet of Fire: ‘You place too much importance, and you always have done, on the so-called purity of blood! You fail to recognize that it matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be!’
