How is it possible for voldemort if he had the stone to be immortal? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs).

That's one of the things the stone does - you get the Elixir of Life from that, and so long as you keep drinking that, you don't die. ProfessorTofty (talk) 15:55, July 25, 2012 (UTC)
Bur hasn't he already got the horcores? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs).
Right, but he still needed a way to get a body and the stone would have allowed him to do that, too. In fact, Dumbledore said that this was the main reason that he wanted the stone actually - he felt that once he got a body back, he would have just relied on the horcruxes and wouldn't have even bothered with the stone anymore because he wouldn't want to be reliant on it.

Right but we in the fourth book did he say that we firstly had to find the mortal life and then the immortal? (something like that, it was on the deatheaters chapter) —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs).
Well, what he said was that he would chase mortal life before again seeking immortality, by getting his old body and strength back. He may not have been being entirely truthful here, in that so long as he had his horcruxes he couldn't properly die and therefore was immortal in a way, but perhaps he wasn't going to tell his Death Eaters that directly.
