Remember, Remember
The fifth of November,
The gunpowder treason and plot.
I know of no reason
Why the gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.

People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.

No, what you have are bullets, and the hope that when your guns are empty, I'm no longer standing, because if I am... you'll all be dead before you've reloaded.

The only verdict is vengeance, a vendetta, held as a votive not in vain.

Evey Hammond: I don't want you to die.
V: That's the most beautiful thing you could have ever given me.

There are no coincidences, Delia... only the illusion of coincidence.

Finch: Who was he?
Evey Hammond: He was Edmond Dantés... and he was my father. And my mother... my brother... my friend. He was you... and me. He was all of us.

V: Would you... dance with me?
Evey Hammond: Now? On the eve of your revolution?

V: Beneath this mask there is more than flesh. Beneath this mask there is an idea, Mr. Creedy, and ideas are bulletproof.

The time has come for me to meet my maker and to repay him in kind for all that he has done.

I, like God, do not play with dice and do not believe in coincidence.

V for Vendetta Quotes

We are told to remember the idea, not the man. Because a man can fail. He can becaught, he can be killed and forgotten. But four hundred years later an idea can still change the world. I've witnessed firsthand the power of ideas. I've seen people kill in the name of them; and die defending them. But you cannot touch an idea, cannot hold it or kiss it. An idea does not bleed, it cannot feel pain, and it does not love. And it is not an idea that I miss, it is a man. A man who made me remember the fifth of November. A man I will never forget.

Evey Hammond

...A building is a symbol, as is the act of destroying it. Symbols are given power by people. A symbol, in and of itself is powerless, but with enough people behind it, blowing up a building can change the world.
