"What's fascinating about magic is that it can take on limitless forms. It's in the Vatican, it's in our folklore, it's in our children's stories, it's in our lullabies, it's in the legion of rhymes and schemes and plots laid against the enemy, whatever the enemy may be, and it's all placed in the form of something that can be recited. Example:
'Gentle Jesus, meek and mild,
Look upon a little child;
Pity my simplicity,
Suffer me to come to Thee.'
"That's a piece of magic. It's an incantation! So, I think I'm influenced, because I see magic and its proliferation everywhere."
