The mind is a complex and many-layered thing, Potter... or at least, most minds are.
Crabbe, loosen your hold a little. If Longbottom suffocates it will mean a lot of tedious paperwork.
The mind is not a book, to be opened at will and examined at leisure.
Fools who wear their hearts proudly on their sleeves, who cannot control their emotions, who wallow in sad memories and allow themselves to be provoked this easily - weak people, in other words.

"Would you like me to do it now?" asked Snape, his voice heavy with irony. "Or would you like a few moments to compose an epitaph?"

Snape: "Or maybe he's waiting to hear why you two didn't arrive on the school train."

Going somewhere, Potter? You should be in the Gryffindor common room preparing for yet another year of academic underachievement.

"Yes," said Snape quietly.
"But you were unsuccessful?"
Snape's lip curled. "Obviously."
I have already told you, that I have no further stocks of Veritaserum. Unless you wish to poison Potter - and I assure you I would have the greatest sympathy with you if you did - I cannot help you. The only trouble is that most venoms act too fast to give the victim much time for truth-telling.
Scorpius: "A doe? Lily's Patronus."
Snape: "Strange, isn't it? What comes from within."
Tell me boy, does anything penetrate that thick skull of yours?

I don't expect you will really understand the beauty of the softly simmering cauldron with its shimmering fumes, the delicate power of liquids that creep through human veins, bewitching the mind, ensnaring the senses.
Snape: "Hide them all, then. Keep her - them - safe. Please."
Dumbledore: "And what will you give me in return, Severus?"
Snape: "In - return? Anything."

Harry: "Sir, it's Quidditch tomorrow."
Snape: "Then I suggest you take extra care, Mr. Potter. Loss of limb will not excuse you."
Well, Potter has found the sloth brain. Was it clever hunting or a thief's guilty conscience? So where was it, Potter? In your own head?
Possibly no one's warned you, Lupin, but this class contains Neville Longbottom. I would advise you not to entrust him with anything difficult. Not unless Miss Granger is hissing instructions in his ear.

Severus Snape: "He doesn't like anything, much."
Ah, yes, Harry Potter. Our new - celebrity.
