Christopher Priest Quotes

Quotes by Christopher Priest - (2 quotes)

Christopher Priest - From the Magic category:

- The Prestige...
Every magic trick consists of three parts, or acts. The first part is called The Pledge, the magician shows you something ordinary. The second act is called The Turn, the magician takes the ordinary something and makes it into something extraordinary. But you wouldn't clap yet, because making something disappear isn't enough. You have to bring it BACK. Now you're looking for the secret. But you won't find it because of course, you're not really looking. You don't really want to work it out. You want to be fooled. (Christopher Priest)

Christopher Priest - From the Magic category:

Magicians protect their secrets not because the secrets are large and important, but because they are so small and trivial. The wonderful effects created on stage are often the result of a secret so absurd that the magician would be embarrassed to admit that that was how it was done. (Christopher Priest)
