Harry, there is never a perfect answer in this messy, emotional world. Perfection is beyond the reach of humankind, beyond the reach of magic. In every shining moment of happiness is that drop of poison: the knowledge that pain will come again. Be honest to those you love, show your pain. To suffer is as human as to breathe.

Love blinds. We have both tried to give our sons, not what they needed, but what we needed. We’ve been so busy trying to rewrite our own pasts, we’ve blighted their present.

The rumor is that he's Voldemort's son, Albus. It's probably rubbish. I mean... look, you've got a nose.

Voldemort wanted you! Not my son! You told me yourself, the words he said were "kill the spare". The spare. My son, my beautiful son, was a spare.

It took me a long time to discover your weakness, Albus Potter. I thought it was pride, I thought it was the need to impress your father, but then I realised your weakness was the same as your father's - friendship.

Green is a soothing color, isn't it? I mean Gryffindor rooms are all well and good but the trouble with red is - it is said to send you a little mad - not that I'm casting aspersions...

After I came out of hospital - everyone ignored me, shut me out - other than, that is, the boy who had everything - who came across the Gryffindor common room and challenged me to a game of Exploding Snap. People think they know all there is to know about you, but the best bits of you are - have always been - heroic in really quiet ways

There's a silence. A perfect, profound silence. One that sits low, twists a bit, and has damage within it.

I've done this job for centuries
On every student's head I've sat
Of thoughts I take inventories
For I'm the famous Sorting Hat

I've sorted high, I've sorted low,
I've done the job through thick and thin
So put me on and you will know
Which House you should be in

A memorial? I am not interested in a memorial - not anymore. I am an old man - an old dying man - and I am here to ask you - beg you - to help me get him back.

Delphi: "Then kill me."
Harry: "I can't do that either."
Albus: "What? Dad? She's dangerous."
Harry: "No, Albus."
Albus: "But she's a murderer- I've seen her murder-"
Harry: "Yes, Albus, she's a murdurer, and we're not."
Hermione: "We have to be better than them."
Ron: "Yeah, it's annoying but it's what we learnt."

When spares are spared,
when time is turned,
when unseen children murder their fathers:
Then will the Dark Lord return.

I shouldn't have survived - it was my destiny to die - even Dumbledore thought so - and yet i lived. I beat Voldemort. All these people - all these people - my parents, Fred, the Fallen Fifty - and it's me that gets to live? How is that? All this damage - and it's my fault.
