Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

‘The Deathly Hallows,’ he said, and he was glad to see that the words wiped the smile from Dumbledore’s face. 
‘Ah, yes,’ he said. He even looked a little worried. 
‘Well?’ For the first time since Harry had met Dumbledore, he looked less than an old man, much less. He looked, fleetingly, like a small boy caught in wrongdoing.
 ‘Can you forgive me?’ he said. ‘Can you forgive me for not trusting you? For not telling you? Harry, I only feared that you would fail as I had failed. I only dreaded that you would make my mistakes. I crave your pardon, Harry. I have known, for some time now, that you are the better man.’
 ‘What are you talking about?’ asked Harry, startled by Dumbledore’s tone, by the sudden tears in his eyes. 
‘The Hallows, the Hallows,’ murmured Dumbledore. ‘A desperate man’s dream!’ 
‘But they’re real!’ 
Real, and dangerous, and a lure for fools,’ said Dumbledore. ‘And I was such a fool. But you know, don’t you? I have no secrets from you any more. You know.’
 ‘What do I know?’ Dumbledore turned his whole body to face Harry, and tears still sparkled in the brilliantly blue eyes. 
Master of death, Harry, master of Death! Was I better, ultimately, than Voldemort?’ 
‘Of course you were,’ said Harry. ‘Of course – how can you ask that? You never killed if you could avoid it!’ 
‘True, true,’ said Dumbledore, and he was like a child seek- ing reassurance. ‘Yet I, too, sought a way to conquer death, Harry.’ 
‘Not the way he did,’ said Harry. 
After all his anger at Dumbledore, how odd it was to sit here, beneath the high vaulted ceiling, and defend Dumbledore from himself. ‘Hallows, not Horcruxes.’
‘Hallows,’ murmured Dumbledore, ‘not Horcruxes. Precisely.’
There was a pause. The creature behind them whimpered, but Harry no longer looked round. 
‘Grindelwald was looking for them too?’ he asked. 
Dumbledore closed his eyes for a moment, and nodded.
 ‘It was the thing, above all, that drew us together,’ he said quietly. ‘Two clever, arrogant boys with a shared obsession. He wanted to come to Godric’s Hollow, as I am sure you have guessed, because of the grave of Ignotus Peverell. He wanted to explore the place the third brother had died.’
