I Am With You

"It's going to be all right, sir," Harry said over and over again, more
worried by Dumbledore's silence than he had been by his weakened
voice. "We're nearly there. . . . I can Apparate us both back. . . .
Don't worry. . . ."
"I am not worried, Harry," said Dumbledore, his voice a little stronger
despite the freezing water. "I am with you."
~from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J. K. Rowling

My very, very favorite lines from the whole series! I have not forgotten them since I first read them, and they are part of what makes book six my favorite. The mutual admiration that Harry and Dumbledore have for each other, despite their difference in age, made stronger by their shared trials and triumphs and sacrifices, make this moment so powerful. I just love these books.

Happy Sunday!
