    Cassandra Clare
    "How did you know I had Shadowhunter blood? Was there some way you could tell?"
    The elevator arrived with a final groan. Jace unlatched the gate and slid it open. The inside reminded Clary of a birdcage, all black metal and decorative bits of gilt. "I guessed," he said, latching the door behind them. "It seemed like the most likely explanation."
    "You guessed? You must have been pretty sure, considering you could have killed me."
    He pressed a button in the wall, and the elevator lurched into action with a vibrating groan that she felt all through the bones in her feet. "I was ninety percent sure."
    "I see," Clary said.
    There must have been something in her voice, because he turned to look at her. Her hand cracked across his face, a slap that rocked him back on his heels. He put a hand to his cheek, more in surprise than pain. "What the hell was that for?"
    The other ten percent," she said, and they rode the rest of the way down to the street in silence.”
    Cassandra Clare, City of Bones

    “Jace's eyes sparkled, but he said calmly, "Not at all. the Silent Brothers can help her retrieve her memories."

    "I don't hate them," said Jace candidly."I'm afraid of them. It's not the same thing."

    do you define a word without concrete meaning? To each his own, the saying goes, so


    push to attain an ideal state of being that no two random people will agree is


    you want to be? Faultless. Finished. Incomparable. People can never be these, and anyway,


    did creating a flawless facade become a more vital goal than learning to love the person


    lives inside your skin? The outside belongs to others. Only you should decide for you -


    is perfect.”

One minute you're munching a faerie plum, the next minute you're running naked down Madison Avenue with antlers on your head. Not," he added hastily, "that this has ever happened to me.”

    “I...I sang," she whispered, "if that matters," and Karou felt her heart pulled to pieces. This Misbegotten warrior, fiercest of them all, had crouched in an icy stream bed to sing a chimera soul into her canteen, because she hadn't known what else to do.
    The singing wouldn't have mattered, but she wasn't going to tell Liraz that. If Ziri's soul was in that canteen, Karou would happily learn whatever song Liraz had sung and make it part of her resurrection ritual forever, just so that the angel would never feel that she'd been foolish.”

    “This. This is exactly it.

    "It had always seemed to Emily, ever since she could remember, that she was very, very near to a world of wonderful beauty. Between it and herself hung only a thin curtain; she could never draw the curtain aside — but sometimes, just for a moment, a wind fluttered it and then it was as if she caught a glimpse of the enchanting realm beyond — only a glimpse — and heard a note of unearthly music.

    This moment came rarely — went swiftly, leaving her breathless with the inexpressible delight of it. She could never recall it — never summon it — never pretend it; but the wonder of it stayed with her for days. It never came twice with the same thing. Tonight the dark boughs against that far-off sky had given it. It had come with a high, wild note of wind in the night, with a shadow wave over a ripe field, with a grey bird lighting on her windowsill in a storm, with the singing of “Holy, holy, holy” in church, with a glimpse of the kitchen fire when she had come home on a dark autumn night, with the spirit-like blue of ice palms on a twilit pane, with a felicitous new word when she writing down a ‘description’ of something. And always when the flash came to her Emily felt that life was a wonderful, mysterious thing of persistent beauty."

    — Emily of New Moon by
    L.M. Montgomery
