but just as much to stand up to our friends. -- Dumbledore, page 306

-- George Weasley, page 192
The consequences of our actions are always so complicated, so diverse,
that predicting the future is a very difficult business indeed.
-- Dumbledore, page 426
You can exist without your soul, you know, as long as your brain and heart
are still working. But you'll have no sense of self anymore, no memory, no ... anything.
There's no chance at all of recovery. You'll just — exist. As an empty shell.
And your soul is gone forever ... lost. -- Lupin, page 247
The consequences of our actions are always so
complicated, so diverse, that predicting the future is a very difficult
business indeed. -- Dumbledore, page 426
You think the dead we loved ever truly leave us?
You think that we don't recall them more clearly than ever in times of

particular Patronus? Prongs rode again last night. -- Dumbledore, page 427

Bouillabaisse. -- Hermione

The thing Harry had taken to be a pile of rags gave a prolonged,
grunting snore, then jerked awake. -- page 81
The cloud of smoke vanished as Mundungus stowed his pipe back in his pocket,
but an acrid smell of burning socks lingered. -- page 81
... several paper aeroplanes swooped into the lift.
Harry stared up at them as they flapped idly around above his head;

stamped along the edge of their wings. -- page 129
Just because you've got the emotional range of a teaspoon
doesn't mean we all have -- Hermione, page 459

she said coldly -- Rita Skeeter, page 567

the tiny, stooped witch with a face so lined it looked

-- Ron, page 717
Year 6 --
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Voldemort himself created his worst enemy, just as tyrants everywhere

of them realize that, one day, amongst their many victims, there is sure
to be one who rises against them and strikes back!
-- Dumbledore, page 510
Somewhere out in the darkness, a phoenix was singing in a way
Harry had never heard before: a stricken lament of terrible
beauty. And Harry felt, as he had felt about phoenix song before,

through the castle windows.

I am good-looking enough for both of us, I theenk!

though never quite eradicated.
-- page 644
Year 7 --
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
It is a curious thing, Harry, but perhaps those who are
best suited to power are those who have never sought it.
-- Dumbledore, page 718
You are the true master of death, because the true master
does not seek to run away from Death. He accepts that he
must die, and understands that there are far, far worse
things in the living world than dying.
-- Dumbledore, page 720
Is this real? Or has this been happening inside my head?
Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry,
but why on earth should that mean it is not real?
