Leaky's Daily Quotedown to Deathly Hallows: 100 Days

DH Film

As of midnight tonight in the UK, there are 100 days left until "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I" hits theaters! We are posting a quote from the first half of the book every day in celebration and to give us a chance to discuss and ponder the final book as it goes to film. Here's today's quote!
"I have been careless, and so have been thwarted by luck and chance, those wreckers of all but the best-laid plans.  But I know better now.  I understand those things that I did not understand before.  I must be the one to kill Harry Potter, and I shall be."
-Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, "The Dark Lord Ascending"

Thanks Leaky that’s a great idea, I’m re-reading the series and I’m currently half way through reading OOTP, I’m very much looking forward to reading DH again and the quotes are really going to whet the appetite :D

About the quote. Voldermort was so off the point, he couldn’t possibly understand anything..! Even though he thought he did..

I love this quote because at first glance it sounds really deep but then if you pick it apart you realize it just shows Voldemort’s own naivety about his entire situation. Thwarted by luck and chance? Actually no, you just think you’re big and bad but you actually don’t understand people or the world in general. AAAHHHH I can’t wait for this movie!!! haha :o)
