Alphonse Elric FMA Anime Quotes about Alchemy and 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!

It’s science. We’re alchemists.
Alchemy can give us all sorts of abilities… This is one of mine.

You know, I didn’t ask to be this big.
Alphonse Elric FMA Anime Quotes, as a 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!
Alphonse Elric FMA Anime Quotes, Al being Al
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.

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