message 1: by Chelsey, Goodreads keeps screwing up on me, so I'm not on much (new)

Chelsey (-chelsey-) | 35 comments Mod

Clare's books are so funny with brilliant quotes. Here are just some of my favs-
"I Dont want to grow up, i want to be an angst ridden teenager who cant confront his own inner demons and takes it out verbally on other people instead" (Jace)

"When life gives you lemons, make lemonade, and then throw it in the
face of the person who gave you the lemons until they give you the
oranges you originally asked for" (Jace)

Jace - "So it's true. You can walk in sunlight"
"I thought perhaps it might have worn off'
Simon - "If i feel the urge to burst into flames, I'll let you know."

It says 'Shadowhunters; looking better in black than the window of our enemies since 1234." [Jace]

"...at least you don't have to worry about rejection, Jace Wayland."
"Not necessarily. I turn myself down occasionally, just to keep it interesting." said Jace.

Jace: A Diary with no drawings of me in it? Where are the torrid fantasies? The romance covers?

"You know, when most girls say they want a big rock, they don't mean, you know, literally a big rock."

"Hi, I'm one of the knife carrying hooligans you met last night in Pandemonium? I'm afraid I made a bad impression and was hoping you'd give me a change to make it up to....-" Simon

"It's the mortal Cup, Jace, not the Mortal Toilet bowl." Said Isabelle, " Are we done now? Can we go?"


The cuckoo bird," she said. "You see, cuckoos are parasites. They lay their eggs in other birds' nests. When the egg hatches, the baby cuckoo pushes the other baby birds out of the nest. The poor parent birds work themselves to death trying to find enough food to feed the enormous cuckoo child who has murdered their babies and taken their places."
"Enormous?" said Jace. "Did you just call me fat?"
"It was an analogy."
"I am not fat."
-- Jace and the Inquisitor


"Is this the part where you start tearing off strips of your shirt to bind my wounds?"
"If you wanted me to rip my clothes off, you should have just asked."
--Clary and Jace

Isabelle looked dubious. "Mom and dad won't be pleased if they find out."
"That you freed a possible criminal by trading away your brother to a warlock who looks like a gay Sonic the Hedgehog and dresses like the Child Catcher from 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang'?" Simon inquired. "No, probably not."

"Meanwhile," Simon added, "I wanted to tell you that lately I've been cross-dressing. Also, I'm sleeping with your mom. I thought you should know."

"There is no pretending," Jace said with absolute clarity. "I love you, and I will love you until I die, and if there's a life after that, I'll love you then."

"...Have you fallen in love with the wrong person yet?'
Jace said, "Unfortunately, Lady of the Haven, my one true love remains myself."
"At least," she said, "you don't have to worry about rejection, Jace Wayland."
"Not necessarily. I turn myself down occasionally, just to keep it interesting."

"...in fact, don't touch any of my weapons without my permission.'
"Well, there goes my plan for selling them all on ebay," Clary muttered.
"Selling them on what?"
Clary smiled blandly at him, "A mythical place of great magical power."

"Well, you'll have to wait till tomorrow. I'm out of commission." (he points to his shirt) "Look. Jammies."

Isabelle: Investigation?Now we're detectives? Maybe we should all have some code names.
Jace: Good Idea, I shall be Baron Hotschaft Von Hugenstein.

"Jesus!" Luke exclaimed.
"Actually, it's just me," said Simon. "Although I've been told the resemblance is startling."

Jace: Do you remember back at the hotel when you promised that if we lived, you’d get dressed up in a nurse’s outfit and give me a sponge bath?
Clary: It was Simon who promised you the sponge bath.
Simon: As soon as I’m back on my feet, handsome.
Jace: I knew we should have left you a rat.


"Ridiculous isn't it? We would have never all fit."
(after jace and clary have their 'moment' and go to clary's room and see simon)

"One of the Silent Brothers is here to see you. Hodge sent me to wake you up. Actually, he offered to wake you up himself, but since it's five a.m., I figured you'd be less cranky if you had something nice to look at." Jace
"Meaning you?" Clary
"What else?" Jace

Loads more :) what r urs?


message 2: by Lana (new)

Lana (lanajade) "I am a man" he told her, "and men do not consume pink beverages. Get thee gone woman, and bring me something brown."

"No, I'm just a very naughty boy. I do all sorts of bad things. I kick kittens. I make rude gestures at nuns."

-Jace, both of them :D

Sophia H | 1 comments Hey! I'm new to this group, and I'm one of the biggest fans there is (I like to think)
I love Jace and his funny-snarky comments, especially with the Inquisitor. Here is one of my favorites:
"Yes," Jace said, unable to help himself, "I was trained to be an evil mastermind from a young age. Pulling the wings off flies, poisoning the Earth's water supply- I was covering that stuff in kindergarten. I guess we're all lucky my father faked his death before he got to the killing and pillaging part of my education, of no one would be safe."
