"Indeed, your failure to understand that there are things much worse than death has always been your greatest weakness." [Dumbledore, to Voldemort]
"Cornelius, I am ready to fight your men - and win again!" said Dumbledore in a thunderous voice.

Lord Voldemort has returned, you have been chasing the wrong man for twelve months, and it is time you listened to sense!"
