[[File:Harry_Potter_Half-Blood_Prince_Promo.JPG|thumb|Harry Potter; The Chosen One ]]Harry Potter and [[Albus Dumbledore]] are the only two people who know the full contents of the prophecy. As the prophecy was made to Dumbledore, he had a memory of Trelawney telling it to him and thus could show it to Harry by means of his [[Pensieve]]. Harry soon realizes that this prophecy is the catalyst for everything that ever happened to him, that the reason he had a scar, the reason he could [[Parseltongue|speak to snakes]], the reason he had no parents, and the reason, he shares a connection with Voldemort's mind is because Voldemort was trying to circumvent this prophecy in order to destroy the only one who could defeat him.

Despite being the reason for his past, however, Harry also realized that the prophecy greatly affects his future: the part of it saying "Neither can live while the other survives" means that either he or Voldemort must kill the other in the end. Despite this, Dumbledore makes it clear to him that it is not entirely because of the prophecy that Harry would try to defeat Voldemort, it is because of the type of person Harry is that he would not rest until he had defeated the person who killed his parents, [[Cedric Diggory]], and countless others. In fact, the prophecy does not mean he has to do anything, but Voldemort sets store by the prophecy by marking Harry as his equal when he tried to kill him, as tyrants such as Voldemort are always afraid of those they oppress. Though Harry told [[Ronald Weasley|Ron Weasley]] and [[Hermione Granger]] what the prophecy meant, he never told them its contents word for word.
