Here's Looking at You, Cat

“We both know you belong with Dumbledore. You’re part of his work, the thing that keeps him going. If that Portkey leaves and you’re not with him, you’ll regret it. Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow, but soon and for the rest of your life.

Where I’m going, you can’t follow. What I’ve got to do, you can’t be any part of. Minerva, I’m no good at being noble, but it doesn’t take much to see that the problems of three secondary school teachers don’t amount to a phial of bubotuber pus in this crazy world.

We’ll always have Hogsmeade.”
