Cassandra Clare
“If I might make a suggestion,” said Will. “About twenty paces behind us, in the Council room, is Benedict. If you’d like to go back in there and try kicking him, I recommend aiming upward and a bit to the left—”
Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Prince

E.B. White
“You have been my friend. That in itself is a tremendous thing. I wove my webs for you because I liked you. After all, what's a life, anyway? We're born, we live a little while, we die. A spider's life can't help being something of a mess, with all this trapping and eating flies. By helping you, perhaps I was trying to lift up my life a trifle. Heaven knows anyone's life can stand a little of that.”
E.B. White, Charlotte's Web

Cassandra Clare
“Women do not think with logic and discretion but with emotions of the heart”
Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Prince

Cassandra Clare
“Henry," said Charlotte, who appeared to have recovered from her shock, "if you set yourself on fire deliberately, I will institute divorce proceedings. Now sit down and eat your supper. And say hello to our guest.”
Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel

Cassandra Clare
“Mundanes who involve themselves in things they know nothing about are likely to meet unpleasant endings.”
Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel

Cassandra Clare
“Dear God,” said Will, looking from Charlotte to Nate and back again. “Is there anything that makes women sillier than the sight of a wounded young man?”
Tessa slitted her eyes at him. “You might want to clean the rest of the blood of your face before you continue arguing in that vein.”
Will threw his arms up in the air and stalked off. Charlotte looked at Tessa, a half smile curving the side of her mouth. “I must say, I rather like the way you manage Will.”
Tessa shook her head. “No one manages Will.”
Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel

“You could have all the crazy thoughts you wanted, as long as you smiled and kept them to yourself.”
Mara Purnhagen, Past Midnight

Cassandra Clare
“And of course Charlotte hasn't eaten a bit of dinner," Henry said, getting up. "I'll go see if Bridget can't make her up a plate of cold chicken. As for the rest of you-" He paused for a moment, as if he were about to give them an order-send them to bed, perhaps, or back to the library to do more research. The moment passed, and a look of puzzlement crossed his face. "Blast it, I can't remember what I was going to say," he announced, and vanished into the kitchen.”
Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Prince

Elizabeth Eulberg
“If you don't have any feelings for Will Darcy, why are you blushing and fixing your hair?”
Elizabeth Eulberg, Prom and Prejudice

Suzanne Young
“You’ll make a sucky father someday,” I tell him with a smile. “I feel sorry for the kid that doesn’t get to burst into light to get out of your house.”

He chokes out a laugh. “Is it my sarcasm?”

“Definitely. And that obnoxious accent.”
Suzanne Young, A Need So Beautiful

Emery Lee
“Finally, mutually, and completely, they released all doubts, abandoned all fears, unwilling and unable to deny this overpowering love.”
Emery Lee, The Highest Stakes

Nyrae Dawn
“I believe that everyone has certain key moments in their lives they’ll never forget. Moments marking the beginning or end of something. Moments that will always own a little piece of you. You can track decisions you make or paths your life follows and they always lead back to one of these defining moments. This is one of them.”
Nyrae Dawn, Four Summers

Jennifer E. Smith
“What are you doing a study on right now?"

"A study on the statistical probablity of love at first sight.”

Kerstin Gier
“Did you know that Gideon and I were trained in Krav Maga?" Charlotte took another step closer to me, and I automatically took one back.
"No, but did /you/ know that at this moment you look like that crazy rodent in Ice Age?”
Kerstin Gier, Emerald Green

Suzanne Young
“I'm out, surrounded in dark. But in the distance there is a small glow, a tiny light. Suddenly I'm standing alone, the space starting to brighten as the light grows.”
Suzanne Young, A Need So Beautiful

Nyrae Dawn
“What is it about stars that you love so much?” he asks.
That answer comes quickly. “Because they’re infinite. They’re miracles, and anything is possible when you look out into the massive space that goes on and on.” Because I want that. I want to explore and see what’s out there and feel as free as those stars in the sky.”
Nyrae Dawn, Four Summers

Emery Lee
“Try as you may, you can never defy love.”
Emery Lee, The Highest Stakes

Olivia Parker
“By some miracle, Charlotte's polite smile never wavered. It was a proud moment for her. After all, it wasn't every day that a little old lady told you right to your face that your bosom was as flat as a flounder.”
Olivia Parker, To Wed a Wicked Earl

Cassandra Clare
“Well, if he won't see you or Henry, can't you send someone else?" asked Jessamine in a bored voice. "You run the Institute; the Enclave members are supposed to do whatever you say."
"But so many of them are on Benedict's side," said Charlotte. "They want to see me fail. I just don't know who I can trust."
"You can trust us," said Will. "Send me. And Jem."
"What about me?" said Jessamine indignantly.
"What about you? You don't really want to go, do you?"
Jessamine lifted a corner of the damp cloth off her eyes to glare."On some smelly train all the way up to deadly dull Yorkshire? No, of course not. I just wanted Charlotte to say she could trust me."
"I can trust you, Jessie, but you're clearly not well enough to go. Which is unfortunate, since Aloysius always had a weakness for a pretty face."
"Even more reason why I should go," said Will.
"Will, Jem . . ." Charlotte bit her lip. "Are you sure? The Council was hardly best pleased by the independent actions you took in the matter of Mrs. Dark."
"Well, they ought to be. We killed a dangerous demon!" Will protested.
"And we saved Church," said Jem.
"Somehow I doubt that counts in our favor," said Will. "That cat bit me three times the other night."
"That probably does count in your favor," said Tessa. "Or Jem's, at least.”
Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Prince

Nyrae Dawn
“I think…if things were different. If we were closer… You’d be it for me, Star Girl. Is that stupid to say? That I think I could love you?”
Nyrae Dawn, Four Summers

Nyrae Dawn
“The stars here and the ones there are each special for their own reason. You grew up looking at these, while I looked at mine. Now we’ve both looked at each of them together.”
Nyrae Dawn, Four Summers

Nyrae Dawn
“All those other summers and those other kisses and everything else we shared, my dad choosing some random lake in some random town to stay in one year, the fights and the screw ups that helped us learn and gave us experiences with other people. They were all meant to happen, and our paths were supposed to cross over and over again. Until we found that point, the bright star in the summer sky that would be ours forever.”
Nyrae Dawn, Four Summers

Nyrae Dawn
“We’ve grown and changed, screwed up, but at the beginning of each summer, we found each other again. Or maybe we never really lost each other.”
Nyrae Dawn, Four Summers

Matt Ruff
“Hi," I said. "I'm the last of the Brontë sisters.”
Matt Ruff, Bad Monkeys

Robyn Schneider
“I mean, don't you want to be like everyone else?"
"Not particularly.”
Robyn Schneider, The Beginning of Everything

Cassandra Clare
“Charlotte slammed the paper down onto her desk with an exclamation of rage. "Aloysius Starkweather is the most stubborn, hypocritical, obstinate, degenerate-"
"Would you like a thesaurus?" Will inquired."You seem to be running out of words."
"And is he really degenerate?" Jem asked."I mean, the old codger's almost ninety-surely past real deviancy."
"I don't know," said Will. "You'd be surprised at what some of the old fel ows over at the Devil Tavern get up to."
"Nothing anyone you know might get up to would surprise us, Will," said Jessamine.
"Darling," said Henry anxiously, coming around the desk to where his wife was sitting, "are you quite all right? You look a bit-splotchy."
He wasn't wrong. Red patches of rage had broken out over Charlotte's face and throat.
"I think it's charming," said Will. "I've heard polka dots are the last word in fashion this season.”
Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Prince

Cassandra Clare
“Only Henry, Charlotte thought dryly, would be astonished to see his own wife in their own home.”
Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Princess
