|“||There is a room in the Department of Mysteries that is kept locked at all times. It contains a force that is at once more wonderful and more terrible than death, than human intelligence, than the forces of nature. It is also, perhaps, the most mysterious of the many subjects for study that reside there. It is the power held within that room that you possess in such quantities and which Voldemort has not at all.||„|
|~ Albus Dumbledore to Harry Potter, about the powers and mysteries of love|
The Power Of Love is a curious thing. It makes one man weep and another man sing. It can change a hawk to a little white dove, Bring inanimate objects to life and It might just save your life.
It makes people want to give up personal freedom to belong to each other. Don't you dare mock it, that's the Power of Love.
Even more than The Power of Friendship, The Power Of Love can be applied in dire situations to make things better. In fact, in many Disney movies it's the solution to everything.
- In Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, Professor Dumbledore tells Harry that Voldemort was unable to touch Harry Potter was because he was protected by his mother's loving sacrifice. His mother sacrificed herself for him and the lightning bolt-shaped scar on his forehead is a mark of love.
- In Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Dumbledore tells Harry that he possesses large quantities of love within him, that Lord Voldemort knows nothing of. For that reason, Harry was shielded from Voldemort's influence when he tried to possess him.
- In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Harry shows his true love for his friends by sacrificing himself to Lord Voldemort (when he finds out that he is a Horcrux). Even do he survived the Killing Curse once more, he gave all of his friends and allies the same protection that his mother gave him when she sacrificed herself. Voldemort's spells were therefore useless against everyone.
