This did not Happen in the Book “Differences of habit and language are nothing at all if our aims are identical and our hearts are open.” (Rowling. 723). This quotation is said by Albus Dumbledore in the book Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Dumbledore says this while he is saying goodbye to the quest students from Durmstrang and Beauxbaton.
