He glanced at her. She was not tearful; that was one of the many things about Ginny, she was rarely weepy. He had sometimes thought that having six brothers must have toughened her up.
When you have seen as much of life as I have, you will not underestimate the power of obsessive love.
Ah, Harry, how often this happens even between friends! Each of us believes that what he has to say is much more important then anything the other person might have to contribute!
Dumbledore would have been happier than anybody to think that there was a little more love in the world.
His hand closed automatically around the fake Horcrux but in spite of everything, in spite of the dark and twisting path he saw stretching ahead for himself, in spite of the final meeting with Voldemort he knew must come whether in a month in a year or in ten, he felt his heart lift at the thought that there was still one last golden day of peace left to enjoy with Ron and Hermione.
Why are you worrying about YOU-KNOW-WHO, when you should be worrying about YOU-NO-POO? The constipation sensation that's gripping the nation!
And Harry felt, as he had felt about phoenix song before, that the music was inside him, not without....
Let us step into the night and pursue that flighty temptress, adventure.
Excuse me, are you the imprint of a departed soul?
Ron gave a tiny jerk of the head that Harry understood to mean, Well - if you must.
I enjoyed the meetings, too. It was like having friends.
Yes, Harry, blessed as I am with extraordinary brainpower, I understood everything you told me. I think you might even consider the possibility that I understood more than you did.
And tears came before he could stop them, boiling hot then instantly freezing on his face, and what was the point in wiping them off? Or pretending? He let them fall.
Fight and keep fighting, for then evil can be sent a-bay, but never quite eradicated
The evidence so far suggests that that would be optimistic to the point of foolishness.
I just wish I'd asked you sooner. We could've had ages ... months ... years maybe ...
You are protected, in short, by your ability to love.
And without thinking, without planning it, without worrying about the fact that fifty people were watching, Harry kissed her.
Nobody's ever asked me to a party before, as a friend. Is that why you dyed your eyebrow, for the party? Should I do mine too?
For future reference, Harry, it is raspberry...although of course, if I were a Death Eater, I would have been sure to research my own jam preferences before impersonating myself.
The trouble is, the other side can do magic too, Minister.
I make mistakes like the next man. In fact, being--forgive me--rather cleverer than most men, my mistakes tend to be correspondingly huger.
You can try, but you seem cleverer than Fudge, so I'd have thought you'd have learned from his mistakes. He tried intervening at Hogwarts. You might have noticed he's not Minister anymore, but Dumbledore's still headmaster. I'd leave Dumbledore alone, if I were you.
As for the fact that Malfoy, Crabbe, and Goyle apeared to be going their different ways when they were usually inseparable, these things happened as people got older--Ron and Hermione, Harry reflected sadly, were living proof.
Oh, come on, Harry, it's not Quidditch that's popular, it's you! You've never been more interesting, and frankly, you've never been more fanciable.
From this point forth, we shall be leaving the firm foundation of fact and journeying together through the murky marshes of memory into thickets of wildest guesswork.
