Good versus Evil Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #10

"You show spirit and bravery, and you come of noble stock. You will make a very valuable Death Eater. We need your kind, Neville Longbottom."

"I'll join you when hell freezes over," said Neville. "Dumbledore's Army!" he shouted, and there was an answering cheer from the crowd… (36.54)

Neville's good-evil compass never wavers, even when Voldemort tries to tempt him over to the dark side. It would never work – he's a true Gryffindor through and through, and is loyal and courageous to the bone. He's certainly not the second coming of Peter Pettigrew, as we once feared.

Quote #11

"He'll be all right," murmured Ginny.

As Harry looked at her, he lowered his hand absentmindedly and touched the lightning scar on his forehead.

"I know he will."

The scar had not pained Harry for nineteen years. All was well. (Epilogue.43-46)

Good triumphs in the end, and there's no sign of a threat to this happy ending – let's hope it stays that way!
