Memorable quotes or scenes from books you hold dear?

Sometimes when a book has been really important to me, a scene or a snippet of dialogue or something like that is etched in to my mind. I can't think of the book without seeing that particular scene or reliving that dialogue.

If you feel the same way, which memorable quotes or scenes from books do you hold dear?

I'll start out:

Quote:
"Like a dog!" he said, it was as if the shame of it should outlive him.
Kafka: The Trial

Quote:
Madman! Madman!
E.A. Poe: The Fall of the House of Usher

Quote:
I would prefer not to
Herman Melville: Batleby the Scrivener

Quote:
Maman died today. Or yesterday maybe, I don't know.
Camus: The Stranger




and SPOILER ALERT


















Quote:
All is good
J.K. Rowling: Harry Potter 7

The last one I'm not to thrilled about, since I thought it was a weak ending. Nevertheless I can't think of Harry Potter without those words popping to mind.
