Dumbledore: "It was foolish to come here tonight, Tom. The Aurors are on their way."
Voldemort: "By which time I shall be gone, and you will be dead!"
Come out, Harry... come out and play, then it will be quick. It might even be painless, I would not know, I have never died.
Wormtail, I need someone with brains, someone whose loyalty has never wavered, and you unfortunately fulfil neither requirement.
And then I ask myself, but how could they have believed I would not rise again? They, who knew the steps I took, long ago, to guard myself against mortal death? They, who had seen proofs of the immensity of my power in the times when I was mightier than any wizard living?
I have been careless, and so have been thwarted by luck and chance, those wreckers of all but the best-laid plans.
Don't be a fool. Better save your own life and join me... or you'll meet the same end as your parents... they died begging me for mercy.
Your efforts are futile. You cannot fight me. I do not want to kill you. I have great respect for the teachers of Hogwarts.
See what I have become? Mere shadow and vapour... I have form only when I can share another's body... but there have always been those willing to let me into their hearts and minds.
Well, how is it that you - a skinny boy with no extraordinary magical talent - managed to defeat the greatest wizard of all time? How did you escape with nothing but a scar, while Lord Voldemort's powers were destroyed?

Harry! I'd almost forgotten you were here, standing on the bones of my father. I'd introduce you, but word has it you're almost as famous as me these days.
Voldemort is my past, present, and future.
It was a name I was already using at Hogwarts, to my most intimate friends only, of course. You think I was going to use my filthy Muggle father's name forever? I, in whose veins runs the blood of Salazar Slytherin himself, through my mother's side? I, keep the name of a foul, common Muggle, who abandoned me even before I was born, just because he found out his wife was a witch? No, Harry. I fashioned myself a new name, a name I knew wizards everywhere would one day fear to speak, when I had become the greatest sorcerer in the world!
I was ripped from my body, I was less than spirit, less than the meanest ghost... but still, I was alive.
As inspiring as I find your bloodlust Bellatrix, I must be the one to kill Harry Potter.
After tonight, if they speak of you they'll speak only of how you begged for death. And I, being a merciful Lord, obliged.
Horace Slughorn: "Thank you for the pineapple, you're quite right, it is my favorite - but how did you know?"
Tom Riddle: "Intuition."
I can make animals do what I want them to do, without training them. I can make bad things happen to people who annoy me. I can make them hurt if I want to.
Unicorn blood can sustain me but it cannot give me a body of my own. But there is something that can. Something that, conveniently enough, lies in your pocket.
I knew I was different, I knew I was special. Always, I knew there was something.

Quotes about Voldemort / Tom Riddle

Harry: "You don't learn from your mistakes, Riddle, do you?"
Voldemort: "You dare -"
Harry: "Yes I dare. I know things you don't know, Tom Riddle. I know lots of important things that you don't. Want to hear some, before you make another big mistake?"

"If all the alleged sightings of him are genuine, we must have a good nineteen You-Know-Whos running around the place."
"Which suits him, of course," said Kingsley. "The air of mystery is creating more terror than actually showing himself."
For instance, this new idea that You-Know-Who can kill with a single glance from his eyes. That's a Basilisk, listeners. One simple test: check whether the thing that's glaring at you has got legs. If it has, it's safe to look into its eyes, although if it really is You-Know-Who, that's still likely to be the last thing you ever do.
My sister has children who have been around 10, 11, 12 and I said, "Marth, I don't know about this Voldemort."
"What? You're being asked to play Voldemort? You've got to do it!"

His name is Voldemort. Filius, you might as well use it. He's going to try to kill you either way.
I must say, I'd like to know where you get your information, boy; more knowledgeable than half the staff, you are.
We did it, we bashed them, wee Potter’s the one
And Voldy’s gone mouldy, so now let's have fun
When the Dark Lord takes over, is he going to care how many O.W.L.s or N.E.W.T.s anyone's got? Of course he isn't. It'll be all about the kind of service he received, the level of devotion he was shown.
