Quotes Rose Liked

Cassandra Clare
“Is this the part where you say if I hurt her, you'll kill me?"
"No" Simon said, "If you hurt Clary she's quite capable of killing you herself. Possibly with a variety of weapons.”
Cassandra Clare, City of Glass

Cassandra Clare
“Sebastian just smiled. “I could hear your heart beating,” he said softly. “When you were watching me with Valentine. Did it bother you?”
“That you seem to be dating my dad?” Jace shrugged. "You’re a little young for him, to be honest.”
“What?” For the first time since Jace had met him, Sebastian seemed flabbergasted.”
Cassandra Clare, City of Glass

Cassandra Clare
“And the Clave wants to meet Clarissa. You know that, Jace."
"The Clave can screw itself."
"Jace," Maryse said, sounding genuinely parental for a change. "Language."
"The Clave wants a lot of things," Jace amended. "It shouldn't necessarily get them all.”
Cassandra Clare, City of Glass

Cassandra Clare
“Well, not in this case. He reached into the Inquisitor and he twisted..." Clary shuddered. "There was a lot of blood."
"Like a special bonus for you," Jace said to Simon.
Simon ignored this.”
Cassandra Clare, City of Glass

Cassandra Clare
“This could be the last night of our lives, certainly the last even barely ordinary one. The last night we go to sleep and get up just as we always have. And all I could think of was that I wanted to spend it with you."
Her heart skipped a beat. "Jace-"
"I don't mean it like that," he said. "I won't touch you, not if you don't want me to. I know it's wrong - God, it's all kinds of wrong - but I just want to lie down with you and wake up with you, just once, just once ever in my life." There was desperation in his voice. "It's just this one night. In the grand scheme of things, how much can this one night matter?"
...There was nothing she had ever wanted in her life more than she wanted this night with Jace.
"Close the curtains, then, before you come to bed," she said. "I can't sleep with this much light in the room.”
Cassandra Clare, City of Glass

Cassandra Clare
“His hands lay flat on either side of him, his arms at his sides. He seemed barely to be breathing; she wasn't sure she was breathing herself. She slid her own hand across the bedsheet, just far enough that their fingers touched-so lightly that she would have probably hardly been aware of it had she been touching anyone but Jace; as it was, the nerve endings in her fingertips pricked softly, as if she were holding them over a low flame. She felt him tense beside her and then relax. He had shut his eyes, and his lashes cast fine shadows against the curve of his cheekbones. His mouth curled into a smile as if he sensed her watching him, and she wondered how he would look in the morning, with his hair messed and sleep circles under his eyes. Despite everything, the thought gave her a jolt of happiness.
She laced her fingers through his. "Good night," she whispered. With their hands clasped like children in a fairy tale, she fell asleep beside him in the dark.”
Cassandra Clare, City of Glass

Cassandra Clare
“If I have to tie you up and sit on you until this insane whim of yours passes, you are not going to Idris." (Jace Wayland)”
Cassandra Clare, City of Glass

Joanne Paula Calma This letter from Jace made me think that he completely changed because of Clary. The love that he thought that will break you into a million pieces is actually a love that will change your life forever.
I love this!

Laura ☾★ The Wandering Witch ☆☽ *Sobbing*

Sonali126 Awwww so sweet Jace love has really changed your rude ways

Susy This had me all teary-eyed and swooning...the sweetest letter I have ever read. There's no one like Jace Wayland Herondale Lightwood <333

Sarah When I read the letter I thought "boy, did Jace change" n not only that I was bawlin my eyes out when I read it n I had a bad feeling about Jace leavin Clary to kill Valentine n JONATHAN (y do they start callin him Sebastian, I mean I knw he disguised himself as Sebastian to get into the Glass City- but rlly! Poor Sebastian!-the real one) me n my best mate (who is also obsessed with the MI books) both were literally beggin (we knw he's not real *sob*) not to go....but he did n although we didn't want him 2 go am actually quite glad he did coz it's wot made their love grow! :D
