Lord Voldemort

Haven’t I already told you that killing Mudbloods doesn’t matter to me any more? For many months now, my new target has been — you.

Tom Riddle, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Voldemort… is my past, present and future.

Tom Riddle, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

I met him when I traveled around the world. A foolish young man I was then, full of ridiculous ideas about good and evil. Lord Voldemort showed me how wrong I was. There is no good and evil, there is only power, and those too weak to seek it…

Professor Quirrell, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s

Your mother died to save you. If there is one thing Voldemort cannot understand, it is love. He didn’t realize that love as powerful as your mother’s for you leaves its own mark. Not a scar, no visible sign…to have been loved so deeply, even though the person who loved us is gone, will give us some protection forever. It is in your very skin.

Professor Dumbledore, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone

I remember every wand I’ve ever sold, Mr. Potter. Every single wand. It so happens that the phoenix whose tail feather is in your wand, gave another feather–just one other. It is very curious indeed that you should be destined for this wand when its brother–why, its brother gave you that scar.

Mr. Ollivander,Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s

Curious indeed how these things happen. The wand chooses the wizard, remember…. I think we must expect great things from you, Mr Potter…. After all, He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named did great things — terrible, yes, but great.

Mr Ollivander,Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone

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

Albus Dumbledore,Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone

What happened down in the dungeons between you and Professor Quirrell is a complete secret, so, naturally the whole school knows.

Albus Dumbledore,Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone

A wise man once said that a hero is only as good as the villain who opposes him. I am all but certain that wise man was captured, tortured to excruciating effect, then blasted into smithereens by one Tom Marvolo Riddle, otherwise known as Lord Voldemort, the most awesome bad guy of all time. For those of you who disagree, I pity you… the best way to incur the Dark Lord’s wrath (which usually involves his gigantic pet snake eating your head) is to fail to recognize his malevolent superiority.
