Welcome to the Pensieve!
| "What is it?" asked Harry shakily.
"This? It is called a Pensieve," said Dumbledore. "I sometimes
find, and I am sure you know the feeling, that I simply have too many thoughts
and memories crammed into my mind."
"Er," said Harry, who couldn't
truthfully say that he had ever felt anything of the sort.
"At these times," said Dumbledore, indicating the stone basin,
"I use the Pensieve. One simple siphons the excess thoughts from one's
mind, pours them into the basin, and examines them at one's laisure. It
becomes easier to spot patterns and links, you understand, when they are
in this form."
Welcome to the Pensieve! Here some of the greatest minds come to siphon their
