    Reference to Lily being kind

    Out of the seven novels, there is someplace where Dumbledore, I think refers to Lily when talking with Harry. He tells her how kind Lily was in nature and always willing to help.

    Somehow I believe I'm not imagining this context. A plot bunny came over my way, and its survival could depend on that part of Lily's character. Since I only have my fifth and seventh both with me, I'd be glad if someone could post over the exact dialogue, with the book and chapter reference.

    I'm not sure about this.

    Dumbledore tells Snape that Harry's deepest nature is like Lily's but I can't recall a scene where anyone tells Harry how kind Lily was.

    However, there is a scene in the movie of POA where Lupin is singing her praises about how thoughtful she was, perhaps you're thinking of that.

    Unfortunately, that's not canon.

    Dumbledore does talk about Lily in the books (DH), but like Carole said, it was to Snape and he was telling him that Harry is more like his mother. Well, I don't believe there is anywhere in the books where Harry is told directly that Lily was kind. We just assumed it from the stuff we learned about her such as: 1) She gave up her life for Harry's. 2) She was praised by many teachers such as Dumbledore and Slughorn. 3) She always used to stand up for Snape against James.

    Actually, guys. I'm not sure where, as I don't read the books often, but I am pretty sure there is something there calling her 'kind'.

    I'm not sure why, but it really does ring a bell, and I'm positive someone said it about her, but I may be wrong. [Shrugs]

    However, sorry if I am.

    Lex, maybe you are confusing the books with the movies because they mentioned a lot in the movies of people telling Harry how amazingly kind his mother was. For example, Lupin says in PoA (the movie) how Lily would put everyone before herself but I don't think it was ever mentioned in the books.

    Well, now that clears it, thanks to Carole and Lex as well.
