Strength through unity! Unity through faith!

Lewis Prothero

Everyone remembers what happened that night and what it meant for this country. But I will always remember the man and what he meant to me.

Evey Hammond

Creedy: Why should I trust you?
V: Because it's the only way you're ever going to stop me!

Evey Hammond: My father was a writer. You would've liked him. He used to say that artists use lies to tell the truth while politicians use them to cover it up.
V: A man after my own heart.

Dominic: What do you think's going to happen?
Finch: What usually happens when people without guns stand up to people *with* guns.

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.

...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.

You wear a mask for so long, you forget who you were beneath it.

Gordon Deitrich

Evey Hammond: Oh my God, real butter! I haven't had real butter since I was a kid! Where'd you get it?
V: It was on a personal train of supplies on its way to a Mr. Adam Sutler.

Evey Hammond: Is everything a joke to you, Gordon?
Gordon Deitrich: Only the things that matter.

V: Violence can be used for good.
Evey Hammond: What are you talking about?
V: Justice.

At last, we finally meet. I have something for you, Chancellor; a farewell gift. For all the things you've done, for all that you might've done, and for the only thing you have left. Good-bye, Chancellor.

V for Vendetta Quotes

Creedy: Die! Die! Why won't you die?... Why won't you die?
V: Beneath this mask there is more than flesh. Beneath this mask there is an idea, Mr. Creedy, and ideas are bulletproof.
