Cassandra Clare
“I am catastrophically in love with you.”
Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Princess

Cassandra Clare
“Oh, leave it,” said Jem, kicking Will, not without affection, lightly on the ankle.
“She’s annexed my plan!”
“Will,” Tessa said firmly. “Do you care more about the plan being enacted or about getting credit for it?”
Will pointed a finger at her.
“That,” he said. “The second one.”
Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Prince

Cassandra Clare
“They say you cannot love two people equally at once,” she said. “And perhaps for others that is so. But you and Will—you are not like two ordinary people, two people who might have been jealous of each other, or who would have imagined my love for one of them diminished by my love of the other. You merged your souls when you were both children. I could not have loved Will so much if I had not loved you as well. And I could not love you as I do if I had not loved Will as I did.”
Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Princess

Cassandra Clare
“Dear God, woman,"said Will. "Are there any questions you don't want to know the answer to?”

Jenny Downham, Before I Die

Cassandra Clare
You see it, don't you, James? Without Tessa there is nothing for me--no joy, no light, no life. If you loved me, you would let me have her. You can't love her as I do. No one could. If you are truly my brother, you would do this for me.
Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Prince

Cassandra Clare
“Being Jem, Tessa reflected, must be a great deal like being the owner of a thouroughbred dog that liked to bite your guests. You had to have a hand on his collar constantly.”
Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Prince

Cassandra Clare
“So you’re suggesting we take the train up to York, meet a ninety-year-old man, leap on him, and yank out his hair? I’m sure the Clave will be
ecstatic.”
“They’ll just say you’re mad,” said Jessamine. “They already think it, so what’s the difference, really?”
Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Prince

Cassandra Clare
“Her eyes met his, but she looked quickly away; entangling gazes with Will was confusing at best, dizzying at worst.”
Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Prince

Cassandra Clare
“She hated that will had this effect on her. Hated it. She knew better. She knew what he thought of her. That she was worth nothing. And still a look from him could make her tremble with mingled hatred and longing. It was like poison in her blood, to which Jem was the only antidote.”
Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Prince

Jenny Downham
“Keep breathing. Just keep doing it. It's easy. In and out.”
Jenny Downham, Before I Die

Cassandra Clare
'Twas on an evening fair I went to take the air,
I heard a maid making her moan;
Said, 'Saw ye my father? Or saw ye my mother?
Or saw ye my brother John?
Or saw ye the lad I that I love best,
And his name it is Sweet William?

Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Prince

Jenny Downham
“Hold my hand. Don't let go.”
Jenny Downham, Before I Die

Jenny Downham
“Moments.

All gathering towards this one.”
Jenny Downham, Before I Die

Cassandra Clare
“Tessa: I won't know if I like it until I try it, will I?"
Will: "I've never swum naked in the Thames, but I know I wouldn't like it."
"But think how entertaining for sightseers," said Tessa, and she saw Jem duck his head to hide the quick flash of his grin.”
Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Prince

Cassandra Clare
“Will-," Tessa began but it was too late, Church made a yowling noise at being woken, and lashed out with his claws. Will began to swear. Tessa left, unable to hide the slightest of smiles as she went.”
Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Prince

Jenny Downham
“We make patterns, we share moments.”
Jenny Downham, Before I Die

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

Jenny Downham
“I want the people I love to get up and speak about me, and even if you cry it'll be OK. I want you to say honest things.”
Jenny Downham, Before I Die

Cassandra Clare
“You cut me,” he said. His voice was pleasant. British. Very ordinary. He looked at his hand with critical interest. “It might be fatal.”
Tessa looked at him with wide eyes. “Are you the Magister?”
He tilted his hand to the side. Blood ran down it, spattering the floor. “Dear me, massive blood loss. Death could be imminent.”
“Are you the Magister?”
“Magister?” He looked mildly surprised by her vehemence. “That means ‘master’ in Latin, doesn’t it?”
“I…” Tessa was feeling increasingly as if she were trapped in a strange dream. “I suppose it does.”
“I’ve mastered many things in life. Navigating the streets of London, dancing the quadrille, the Japanese art of flower arranging, lying at charades, concealing a highly intoxicated state, delighting young women with my charms…”
Tessa stared.
“Alas,” he went on, “no one has ever actually referred to me as ‘the master’, or ‘the magister’, either. More’s the pity…”
Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel

Cassandra Clare
“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

Cassandra Clare
“I believe everything you say," Tessa said with a smile, her hands creeping down from his waist to his weapons belt. Her fingers closed on the hilt of a dagger, and she yanked it from the belt, smiling as he looked down at her in surprise. She kissed his cheek and stepped back. "After all," she said, "you weren't lying about that tattoo of the dragon of Wales, were you?”
Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Princess

Cassandra Clare
“She had taken him for granted, she thought with surprise and shame, watching the flickering candlelight. She had assumed his kindness was so natural and so innate, she had never asked herself whether it cost him any effort. Any effort to stand between Will and the world, protecting each of them from the other. Any effort to accept the loss of his family with equanimity. Any effort to remain cheerful and calm in the face of his own dying.”
Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Prince

Pamela Clare
“Tessa touched her hand to his cheek. “You’re strong, brave, protective -”

“So is a Doberman.”
Pamela Clare, Hard Evidence

Cassandra Clare
“As for the temperature of Hell, Miss Gray,” he said, “let me give you a piece of advice. The handsome young fellow who’s trying to rescue you from a hideous fate is never wrong. Not even if he says the sky is purple and made of hedgehogs.”
He really is mad, Tessa thought, but didn’t say so; she was too alarmed by the fact that he had started toward the wide double doors of the Dark Sisters’ chambers.
“No!” She caught at his arm, pulling him back. “Not that way. There’s no way out. It’s a dead end.”
“Correcting me again, I see.” Will turned and strode the other way, toward the shadowy corridor Tessa had always feared. Swallowing hard, she followed him.”
Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel

Cassandra Clare
“It was Will who broke the silence. "Very well. You have me alone in the corrider-"
"Yes, yes," said Tessa impatiently,"and thousands of women all over England would pay handsomely for the privilege of such an opportunity. Can we put aside the display of your wit for a moment? This is important.”
Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel

Cassandra Clare
“You point your feet out too much when you walk,” Will went on. He was busy polishing an apple on his shirtfront, and appeared not to notice Tessa glaring at him. “Camille walks delicately. Like a faun in the woods. Not like a duck”
“I do not walk like a duck.”
“I like ducks,” Jem observed diplomatically. “Especially the ones in Hyde Park.”
Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel

Suzanne Young
“You're my girl, Tessa Crimson. You'll always be my girl." He brought me close to him and wrapped me up in his arms, staring down into my face. "And even if we aren't together, that won't change.”
Suzanne Young, The Naughty List

Jenny Downham
“That slow smile again. I love that smile! DId I think he was ugly just now? No, his face is transformed.”
Jenny Downham, Before I Die

Aileen Erin
“I'd do anything for you, Tessa. I know you don't realize that now, but you will.”
Aileen Erin, Becoming Alpha
