    Cassandra Clare

    Cassandra Clare
    “You know," Gabriel said, "there was a time I thought we could be friends, Will."

    "There was a time I thought I was a ferret," Will said, "but that turned out to be the opium haze. Did you know it had that effect? Because I didn't.”
    Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel

  • #5
    Cassandra Clare
    “Are you implying that shreds of my reputation remain intact?" Will demanded with mock horror. "Clearly I have been doing something wrong. Or not something wrong, as the case may be."

    He banged on the side of the carriage. "Thomas! We must away at once to the nearest brothel. I seek scandal and low companionship.”
    Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel

  • #6
    Cassandra Clare
    “Drowning yourself won't help, she told herself sternly. Now, drowning Will, on the other hand...”

    Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel

  • #8
    Cassandra Clare
    “That was enterprising," Will sounded nearly impressed.
    Nate smiled. Tess shot him a furious look. "Don't look pleased with yourself. When Will says 'enterprising' he means 'morally deficient.'"
    "No, I mean enterprising," said Will. "When I mean morally deficient, I say, 'Now, that's something I would have done'.”
    Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel

  • #9

    Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel

  • #10
    Cassandra Clare
    “I believe in good and evil," said Jem. "And I believe the soul is eternal. But I don't believe in the fiery pit, the pitchforks, or endless torment. I do not believe you can threaten people into goodness."

    Tessa looked at will. "What about you? What do you believe?

    "Pulvis et umbra sumus," said Will, not looking at her as he spoke. "I believe we are dust and shadows. What else is there?”
    Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel

  • #11
    Cassandra Clare
    “Do reasons matter when there's nothing that can be done to change things.”
    Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel

  • #12
    Cassandra Clare
    “cleverness that comes too late is hardly cleverness at all?”

    Cassandra Clare

    Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel

  • #15
    Cassandra Clare
    “I suspect he's sweet on Sophie and doesn't like to see her work too hard.'
    Tessa was glad to hear it. She'd felt awful about her reaction to Sophie's scar, and the thought that Sophie had a male admirer - and a handsome one like that- eased her conscience slightly. 'Perhaps he's in love with Agatha', she said.
    'I hope not. I intend to marry Agatha myself. She may be a thousand years old, but she makes an incomparable jam tart. Beauty fades, but cooking is eternal.”
    Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel

    Cassandra Clare
    “she was glad she had been scarred. She said that whoever loved her now would love her true self, and not her pretty face.”
    Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel

  • #17
    Cassandra Clare
    “Must you go? I was rather hoping you'd stay and be a ministering angel, but if you must go, you must."

    "I'll stay," Will said a bit crossly, and threw himself down in the armchair Tessa had just vacated. "I can minister angelically."

    "None too convincingly. And you're not as pretty to look at as Tessa is," Jem said, closing his eyes as he leaned back against the pillow.

    "How rude. Many who have gazed upon me have compared the experience to gazing at the radiance of the sun."

    Jem still had his eyes closed. "If they mean it gives you a headache, they aren't wrong.”
    Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel

  • #18
    Cassandra Clare
    “Jem seemed to look through her then, as if he were seeing something beyond her, beyond the corridor, beyond the Institute itself. "Whatever you are physically," he said, "male or female, strong or weak, ill or healthy--all those things matter less than what your heart contains. If you have the soul of a warrior, you are a warrior. All those other things, they are the glass that contains the lamp, but you are the light inside." He smiled them, seeming to have come back to himself, slightly embarrassed. "That's what I believe.”
    Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel

    Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel

  • #21
    Cassandra Clare
    “She looked up at him with a smile. The smile broke what was left of his resistance--shattered it. He had let the walls down when he'd thought she was gone, and there was no time to build them back up.”
    Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel

  • #22
    Cassandra Clare
    “She had never imagined that the kiss would be so brief and desperate and wild. Or that it would taste of holy water. Holy water and blood.”
    Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel

  • #23
    Cassandra Clare
    “And I behold London, a Human awful wonder of God' He (Will) stared out over the landscape. "Milton thought Hell was a city, you know. I think maybe he had it half-right. Perhaps London is just Hell's entrance, and we are th damned souls refusing to pass through, fearing that what we will find on the other side will be worse than the horror we already know.”
    Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel

  • #24
    Cassandra Clare
    “It isn't against the Law to be an idiot.”
    Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel

  • #25
    Cassandra Clare
    “So you don't ever get angry at him?"
    Jem laughed out loud. "I would hardly say that. Sometimes I want to strangle him."
    "How on earth do you prevent yourself?"
    "I go to my favorite place in London," said Jem, "and I stand and look at the water, and I think about the continuity of life, and how the river rolls on, oblivious of the petty upsets in our lives."
    Tessa was fascinated. "Does that work?"
    "Not really, but after that I think about how I could kill him while he slept if I really wanted to, and then I feel better.”
    Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel
