  33. The function of muscle is to pull and not to push, except in the case of the genitals and the tongue.
  34. Human subtlety will never devise an invention more beautiful, more simple or more direct than does nature because in her inventions nothing is lacking, and nothing is superfluous.

*laughs* I love her, so much.

The Daily Record has a new interview with actress Helena Bonham Carter where she briefly mentions her part in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. While most of the article focuses on her past career, Ms. Bonham Carter refers to the new Potter movie, calling author J.K. Rowling “a genius.” The actress also goes on to refer to her new role as the deatheater Bellatrix Lestrange who causes so much havoc at the Ministry of Magic.

“And Bella,” says Helena with undisguised delight, “is a very bad, bad, bad witch.”
