One of my favorite moments in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone is when HP finds the Mirror of Erised. He goes back two more times to look into the mirror, once taking Ron who sees something entirely different than Harry. On the third visit Dumbledore finds him and talks to Harry about the mirror. He tells him the happiest man in the world would look in and only see himself. He also tells Harry that people have lost themselves looking into the mirror. When Harry asks Dumbledore what he says he would see himself holding a nice pair of wool socks. I don’t know if Harry doubted Dumbledore’s answer, but fans did. Now that the seventh book has come out and we have learned more about Dumbledore, we can guess that what Dumbledore saw was not unlike what Harry saw.
In book six, Harry had special lessons with Dumbledore. He also went on a journey with Dumbledore relating to Voldemort. Something terrible happened to Dumbledore during this journey and Harry tried to reassure him. Dumbledore, reminding us all how important Harry is to the future of their world, says, “I am not worried, Harry, I am with you.”
