Quotes from alphonse Elric, about equivalent exchange

It’s true, I don’t have a body, but I’m here. This is my punishment for setting foot on holy ground where mortals are forbidden. We made a mistake, Rose, and we’re paying for it.

This body comes with many inconveniences. But inconveniences don’t make me miserable! There is no reason for you to pity me! My life was put back together with alchemy by my brother. If I deny myself, that would mean I’m denying my brother, along with alchemy. I believe in the potential that alchemy holds. I want to believe in it!

Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return. To obtain, something of equal value must be lost. That is Alchemy’s first law of Equivalent Exchange. In those days, we really believed that to be the world’s one, and only, truth.

We became absorbed in the science that made you feel like you were magic.

Survival is the only way, Ed. Live on and learn more about alchemy!

That’s NOT how we do things! Live, and be content while we can. Live to research more alchemy, so one day we can get our bodies back. THAT’S how we do things, brother. Dying, and dying by yourself, and leaving me on my own, that’s something I WON’T let you do!

It’s science. We’re alchemists.

Alchemy can give us all sorts of abilities… This is one of mine.

Quotes from alphonse Elric, The Armored Alchemist

I am the cursed wormy arm! No, wait… uh… I am the cursed Demon Armor! Once your body has become one with my steel, you will lose all emotion and become a warrior of death, for I will take your soul!

Put the gun down. You can shoot if you want, but I won’t die.

… And this is the first time anyone’s treated me like luggage.

Who are you calling a freak?

You’re empty inside…

I may be empty… but I’m not worthless!

You know, I didn’t ask to be this big.

Quotes from alphonse Elric with his brother

Believe you?! How am I supposed to believe anything when I’m stuck in this body? What should I believe in – my memories?! Memories are just scrubs of information that can be made up as easily as anything else!!

Great, Ed. Put your total cynicism on someone else…

Hmm? What do we have here? What an oddly good hand of cards! UHHH! ED! YOU CHEATER! COME BACK! I WANT EVERYTHING YOU WON FROM ME! AND I THOUGHT I WAS JUST UNLUCKY!

Quotes from alphonse Elric about his daily life

On the day we left, we burned down the family home and all the familiar things inside. Because some memories… aren’t meant to leave traces.

Is money all that grown-ups think about?

I can’t really go into it right now, execpt to say that… all this “eye for an eye” stuff… it’s never going to work. So, please, stop fighting each other.

That’s the first time anyone has treated me like a kid since I’ve been in this armor! Thank you!

No fair, sky. I’m the one who feels like crying.

I could…I could never hate you!

Stay back! You can’t tell me what to do!

Edward Elric Fullmetal Alchemist Anime Quotes on Equivalent Exchange and Alchemy

Edward Elric FMA anime quotes about alchemy
Wise word from Edward Elric on Equivalent Exchange

The Philosopher’s Stone: those who possess it, are no longer bound by the laws of equivalent exchange in alchemy, can gain without sacrifice…create without equal exchange. We searched for it…and we found it.

Alchemy: the science of understanding the structure of matter, breaking it down, then reconstructing it as something else. It can even make gold from lead. But alchemy is a science so it must follow the natural laws: to create, something of equal value must be lost. This is the principal of equivalent exchange. But I learned that night that some things cannot be measured on a simple scale. My brother and I knew the laws of science, of equivalent exchange. The game required sacrifice, that something had to be taken from us, but we thought there was nothing more we could loose….We were wrong.

Alchemy can give us all sorts of abilities… This is one of mine.

What do you mean ‘lower myself’? That’s the only thing I’ve ever been. Just a simple human that couldn’t save a little girl. Not even with alchemy.

Who even needs alchemy? When I’ve got THEM.

This portal… I know it contains every secret alchemy has to offer. However, it’s also lead me astray. I saw the truth that lies within it and I became convinced I could solve everything with alchemy. But I couldn’t possibly have been more wrong. That was just arrogance.

I’ve gotta picture myself… as a single mass of energy. Use the energy… just like the Stone. That’s it! I’m a Philosopher’s Stone that’s powered by a single soul! Remember… what it felt like… at that moment! Remember!! How it felt to use souls… TO HARNESS LIFE!!!

This is my last transmutation. Just sit back and enjoy the show!

You’ll have to decide for yourself. Walk on your own. Move forward. You’ve got a strong pair of legs, Rose. You should get up and use them.

That’s a soul, really. Take out the myth, it’s just the spark of life. Our blood…that’s from her blood. That’s a fair trade.

Don’t look away, Rose. You need to see what happens when you try to bring a human to life! When you cross into God’s territory or whatever the hell it is, IS THIS WHAT YOU WANT!? LOOK!!!

Edward Elric Fullmetal Alchemist Anime Quotes on Homunculus

Edward Elric FMA anime quotes about homonculus
Wise word from Edward Elric about Homonculus

They were all sacrificed for the Philosopher’s Stone… then all evidence of their existence was erased. Using alchemy, the city was pulled underground, leaving nothing behind but a rumor to fuel the curious. Only monsters… could come up with such a plan.

Now I see. You’re Jealous. You’re jealous of humans aren’t you? According to you, humans are supposed to be a lot weaker than homunculi. And yet, even if they get discouraged after being beaten, and even if they get close to falling down after losing their paths, they continue to get up and fight. Everyone around them helps them get back up. And you’re envious of that.

Go back to where you were born… GO BACK TO NOTHING, HOMUNCULUS!!!

It’s all my fault… Al lost his body, and it’s all my fault! He can’t eat anymore, he can’t sleep, he can’t feel cold or warmth… He’s my little brother, and I’m supposed to protect him and I did this… How can he ever forgive me!

No – I’m too afraid… I’m too scared of what he’ll say.

This pain’s nothing…compared to what he’s given up…

Whether it be an arm, or a leg, or even my heart you can take it!! So give him back… HE’S MY LITTLE BROTHER AND HE’S ALL I HAVE LEFT!!!

Wise word from Edward Elric about his daily life

It doesn’t matter who you are… If you work hard, it pays off.

Even when our eyes are closed, there’s a whole world out there that lives outside ourselves and our dreams.

I Caught you! You’re mine!

You’re all brainless zombies who never even tried to think for yourselves.

I don’t think so pops, Do I look like a clown to you?

I already told you, A FIST IN HIS FACE!!

Don’t bust a lung grandpa, we can fix it.

Like I always say, if you can’t find a door… make your own!

You shut up! People don’t come back from the dead, Rose. Not ever… not ever.

Attention, gun-toting extremists! Can you hear me alright, or did you blow out your ears playing target practice?

Smart remarks already? Nice patch by the way! Although it should have covered your mouth too!
