  • Pg. 116
    • Note - Ginny Weasley and Harry Potter talking before she kisses him on his seventeenth birthday

  • "It doesn't mean defeating death in the way the Death Eaters mean it, Harry," said Hermione, her voice gentle. "It means... you know... living beyond death. Living after death."
    But they were not living, Harry thought: they were gone. The empty words could not disguise the fact that his parents' mouldering remains lay beneath snow and stone, indifferent, unknowing. And tears came before he could stop them, boiling hot and then instantly freezing on his face, and what was the point in wiping them off, or pretending? He let them fall, his lips pressed hard together, looking down at the thick snow hiding from his eyes the place where the last of Lily and James lay, bones now, surely, or dust, not knowing or caring that their living son stood so near, his heart still beating, alive because of their sacrifice and close to wishing, at this moment, that he was sleeping under the snow with them.

  • Luna had decorated her bedroom ceiling with five beautifully painted faces: Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny, and Neville. They were not moving as the portraits at Hogwarts moved, but there was a certain magic about them all the same; Harry thought they breathed. What appeared to be fine golden chains wove around the pictures, linking them together, but after examining them for a minute or so, Harry realized that the chains were actually one word, repeated a thousand times in golden ink: friends...friends...friends...friends... Harry felt a great rush of affection for Luna.

Chapter 33: The Prince's TaleEdit

  • I speak now, Harry Potter, directly to you. You have permitted your friends to die for you rather than face me yourself. I shall wait for one hour in the Forbidden Forest.

  • You alone know whether it will damage your soul to help an old man avoid pain and humiliation.

    • Pg. 691
    • Narration
  • The images of Fred, Lupin and Tonks lying dead in the Great Hall forced their way back into his mind's eye, and for a moment he could hardly breathe: Death was impatient....
    • Pg. 693
    • Narration
  • People were moving around, trying to comfort each other, drinking, kneeling beside the dead, but he could not see any of the people he loved, no hint of Hermione, Ron, Ginny or any of the other Weasleys, no Luna. He felt he would have given all the time remaining to him for just one last look at them; but then, would he ever have had the strength to stop looking? It was better like this.
    • Pg. 695

  • Harry, you wonderful boy, you brave, brave man.
    • Pg. 707
    • Character - Albus Dumbledore
  • That which Voldemort does not value, he takes no trouble to comprehend. Of house-elves and children's tales, of love, loyalty, and innocence, Voldemort knows and understands nothing. Nothing. That they all have a power beyond his own, a power beyond the reach of any magic, is a truth he has never grasped.
    • Pg. 709-710
    • Character - Albus Dumbledore
  • If he could only have understood the precise and terrible power of that sacrifice, he would not, perhaps, have dared to touch your blood... But then, if he had been able to understand, he could not be Lord Voldemort, and might never have murdered at all.

    • Character - Albus Dumbledore to Harry
  • I have known for some time now, that you are the better man.
    • Pg. 713
    • Character - Albus Dumbledore to Harry
  • Power was my weakness and my temptation. It is a curious thing, Harry, but perhaps those who are best suited to power are those who have never sought it.
    • Pg. 718
    • Character - Albus Dumbledore
  • The true master does not run away from Death. He accepts that he must die and knows that there are far, far worse things in the living world than dying.
    • Pg. 720-721
    • Character - Albus Dumbledore
  • Do not pity the dead, Harry. Pity the living, and, above all those who live without love.
    • Pg. 722
    • Character - Albus Dumbledore
  • Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?
    • Pg. 723
    • Character - Albus Dumbledore

Chapter 36: The Flaw in the PlanEdit

  • ...You crouched and sniveled behind the skirts of greater men and women, and permitted me to kill them for you.
    • Pg. 738
    • Character - Lord Voldemort speaking to Harry Potter
  • Is it love again? Dumbledore's favourite solution, love, which he claimed conquered death, though love did not stop him falling from the tower and breaking like an old waxwork? Love, which did not prevent me stamping out your Mudblood mother like a cockroach, Potter — and nobody seems to love you enough to run forward this time and take my curse. So what will stop you dying now when I strike?
    • Pg. 739
    • Character - Lord Voldemort/Tom Riddle
  • It matters not! It matters not whether Snape was mine or Dumbledore's, or what petty obstacles they tried to put in my path. I crushed them as I crushed your mother, Snape's supposed great love. Oh, but it all makes sense, Potter, and in ways that you do not understand. Dumbledore was trying to keep the Elder Wand from me. He intended that Snape should be the true master of the wand. But I got there ahead of you, little boy -- I reached the wand before you could get your hands upon it. I understood the truth before you caught up. I killed Severus Snape three hours ago and the Elder Wand, the Death Stick, the Wand of Destiny is truly mine! Dumbledore's last plan went wrong, Harry Potter!
    • Pg. 741
    • Character - Lord Voldemort/Tom Riddle
  • It's your one last chance … Be a man … try … Try for some remorse …
    • Pg. 741
    • Character - Harry Potter to Lord Voldemort/Tom Riddle
  • So it all comes down to this, doesn’t it? Does the wand in your hand know its last master was Disarmed? Because if it does … I am the true master of the Elder Wand.
    • Pg. 743
    • Character - Harry Potter to Voldemort, right before they duel.
  • Avada Kedavra!
    • Pg. 743
    • Character - Lord Voldemort/Tom Riddle's Last words
  • And Harry, with the unerring skill of the Seeker, caught the wand in his free hand as Voldemort fell backward, arms splayed, the slit pupils of the scarlet eyes rolling upward. Tom Riddle hit the floor with a mundane finality, his body feeble and shrunken, the white hands empty, the snakelike face vacant and unknowing. Voldemort was dead, killed by his own rebounding curse, and Harry stood with two wands in his hands, staring down at his enemy's shell.
    • Pg. 744
    • Narration
  • He spotted Ginny two tables away; she was sitting with her head on her mother's shoulder: there would be time to talk later, hours and days and maybe years in which to talk.
    • Pg. 745
    • Narration
  • We did it, we bashed them, wee Potter's the one, And Voldy's gone moldy so now lets have fun!
