Famous Quotes and Alchemy by J.K. Rowling

by Hans Andréa

Quote 1.

"Rowling said she couldn't answer the questions about the book's religious content until the conclusion of book seven."


Quote 2.

"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."


Quote 3.

"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."


Quote 4.

"[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."
