Some suggestions for you :

Mr. Dursley was the director of a firm called Grunnings, which made drills.

You are not Sirius's only correspondent, said Dumbledore. I have also been in contact with him ever since he left Hogwarts last year. It was I who suggested the mountainside cave as the safest place for him to stay.

It is our choices...that show what we truly are far more than our abilities.

It gave him an odd, empty feeling to remember those times; it was like remembering a younger brother whom he had lost.

Remembered you're not at school, have you? said Scrimgeour, breathing hard into Harry's face. Remembered that I am not Dumbledore, who forgave your insolence and insubordination? You may wear that scar like a crown, Potter, but it is not up to a seventeen-year-old boy to tell me how to do my job! It's time you learned some respect!

I am a writer, and I will write what I want to write.

You think the dead we loved truly ever leave us? You think that we don't recall them more clearly in times of great trouble?

what’s the difference between a stalagmite and a stalactite?

Firebolt unsurpassable balance and pinpoint precision. The Firebolt has an acceleration of 150 miles an hour in ten seconds and incorporates an unbreakable Braking Charm. Price on request.

It's all right, Ginny. It's over. It's just a memory.

Alas, the first thing you ask me, I cannot tell you. Not today. Not now. You will know, one day . . . put it from your mind for now, Harry. When you are older . . . I know you hate to hear this . . . when you are ready, you will know.

Draco Malfoy was standing there with his wife and son, a dark coat buttoned up to his throat. His hair was receding somewhat, which emphasized the pointed chin. The new boy resembled Draco as much as Albus resembled Harry. Draco caught sight of Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Ginny staring at him, nodded curtly, and turned away again.

All's fair in love and war, said Ron brightly, and this is a bit of both.

Then – just like that – most of the people in this room will be gone, we'll no longer exist and Voldemort will rule again.
