Famous Quotes and Alchemy by J.K. Rowling
by Hans Andréa
"Rowling said she couldn't answer the questions about the book's religious content until the conclusion of book seven."
"If I talk too freely about whether I believe in God I think the intelligent reader, whether 10 or 60, will be able to guess what's coming in the books."
"I've never wanted to be a witch, but an alchemist, now that's a different matter. To invent this wizard world, I've learned a ridiculous amount about alchemy. Perhaps much of it I'll never use in the books, but I have to know in detail what magic can and cannot do in order to set the parameters and establish the stories' internal logic."
"[You can't reverse death is] a given. Without it the plot would fall apart, though in Book Seven you'll see just how close you can get to the dead."
