Tempting Voldemort quotations

Differences of habit and language are nothing at all if our aims are identical and our hearts are open.

It matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be.

There is no good and evil, there is only power and those too weak to seek it.

The wand chooses the wizard.


Your mother died to save you. If there is one thing Voldemort cannot understand, it is love. Love as powerful as your mother's for you leaves it's own mark. To have been loved so deeply, even though the person who loved us is gone, will give us some protection forever.

To Harry Potter — the boy who lived!

Greatness inspires envy, envy engenders spite, spite spawns lies.

But you've been too busy saving the Wizarding world.

Well ... I can't say I'm surprised. I knew this would happen in the end. I knew you wouldn't be happy unless you were hunting Voldemort. Maybe that's why I like you so much.

Remember, if the time should come when you have to make a choice between what is right and what is easy, remember what happened to a boy who was good, and kind, and brave, because he strayed across the path of Lord Voldemort. Remember Cedric Diggory.


"Oh, of course," said Ron, clapping a hand to his forehead.

"I forgot we'll be hunting down Voldemort in a mobile library."

In the end, it mattered not that you could not close your mind. It was your heart that saved you.

Hogwarts was the first and best home he had known.

He and Voldemort and Snape, the abandoned boys, had all found home here.

If there is one thing Voldemort cannot understand, it is love.

He's really sort of the devil. He's completely emotionally detached. He has no empathy. You find that in psychopaths. It's about power with Voldemort. It's an aphrodisiac for him. Power makes him feel alive.


Voldemort himself created his worst enemy, just as tyrants everywhere do! Have you any idea how much tyrants fear the people they oppress? All of them realize that, one day, amongst their many victims, there is sure to be one who rises against them and strikes back!

Did you know— then?” asked Harry.

“Did I know that I had just met the most dangerous Dark wizard of all time? No.

I have seen your heart, and it is mine.

What a house. Turns out they're doing OK, the Malfoy's. However, the interior decorating leaves a lot to be desired. And needless to say, Voldemort isn't the greatest houseguest.

This is what's sick about living in L.

A. My eight-year-old daughter will point to a woman and say, 'Look! That woman's had too much Botox.' She spots them because they all look a bit like Lord Voldemort from 'Harry Potter.'


But I was willing to embrace mortal life again, before chasing immortality.

Unlike Western parents, reminding my child of Lord Voldemort didn't bother me.

I was ripped from my body, I was less than spirit, less than the meanest ghost .

. . but still, I was alive.

Call him Voldemort, Harry. Always use the proper name for things. Fear of a name increases fear of the thing itself.

What are you doing with all those books anyway?" Ron asked.

Just trying to decide which ones to take with us," said Hermione. When we're looking for the Horcruxes." Oh, of course," said Ron, clapping a hand to his forehead. "I forgot we'll be hunting down Voldemort in a mobile library.


Yeah, Quirrell was a great teacher. There was just that minor drawback of him having Lord Voldemort sticking out of the back of his head!

Every Harry Potter film features Lord Voldemort, who stereotypes evil.

And movies that discriminate against evil have no place on campus, because evil has feelings, too. Terrorists cry during commercials and mad bombers enjoy long walks and campfires, too.

Interesting theory. Has anyone ever tried sticking a sword in Voldemort? Maybe the Ministry should put some people onto that, instead of wasting their time stripping down Deluminators or covering up breakouts from Azkaban.

She looks like a warrior. I mean, Bellatrix does mean warrior. And she's also a bit of a fatale. She's the right hand of Voldemort, and the only woman death eater.

I look at my kids as the Harry Potter Generation.

There's a sense of justice about that, in beating Voldemort. It's a classic tale of good versus evil. To have a role model like Harry Potter that says you can defeat evil, but still be a complicated human being. That gives me a lot of hope.


Well I think it is often the case that the biggest bullies take what they know to be their own defects, as they see it, and they put them right on someone else and then they try and destroy the other and that's what Voldemort does.

He knew one thing only, and it was beyond fear or reason: He was not going to die crouching here like a child playing hide-and-seek; he was not going to die kneeling at Voldemort’s feet . . . he was going to die upright like his father, and he was going to die trying to defend himself, even if no defense was possible. . . .

Voldemort uses people his enemies are close to.

He's already used you as bait once, and that was just because you're my best friend's sister. Think how much danger you'll be in if we keep this up. He'll know, he'll find out. He'll try and get to me through you.

...and whenever I had menstral cramps, I could just pretend that Voldemort was close.

And his knowledge remained woefully incomplete, Harry! That which Voldemort does not value, he takes no trouble to comprehend. Of house-elves and children's tales, of love, loyalty, and innocence, Voldemort knows and understands nothing. Nothing. That they all have a power beyond his own, a power beyond the reach of any magic, is a truth he has never grasped.
