Funny quotes

"You guessed? You must have been pretty sure, considering you could have killed me. 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 his hands on his cheek, more in surprise than pain. What the hell was that for? The other ten percent."

Quotes about life

"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."

"That's why when major badasses greet each other in movies, they don't say anything, they just nod. The nod means, 'I' am a badass, and I recognize that you, too, are a badass,' but they don't say anything because they're Wolverine and Magneto and it would mess up their vibe to explain."

"You could have fooled me. Everytime I called you, Luke said you were sick. I figured you were avoiding me. Again. I wasn't. I did want to talk to you. I've been thinking about you all the time. I've been thinking about you, too. I really was sick. I swear. I almost died back there on the ship, you know. I know. Everytime you almost die, I almost die myself."

"'Don't tell me,' Jace said, 'Simon's turned himself into an ocelot and you want me to do something about it before Isabelle makes him into a stole. Well, you'll have have to wait till tomorrow. I'm out of commission.' He pointed at himself - he was wearing blue pajamas with a hole in the sleeve. 'Look. Jammies.' 'Jace,' Clary said, 'this is important.' 'Don't tell me,' he said. 'You've got a drawing emergency. You need a nude model. Well, I'm not in the mood. You could always ask Hodge,' he said as an afterthought. 'I hear he'll do anything for a -' 'JACE!' she interrupted him, her voice rising to a scream. 'JUST SHUT UP FOR A SECOND AND LISTEN, WILL YOU?'"

Love quotes

"We live and breathe words. It was books that made me feel that perhaps I was not completely alone. They could be honest with me, and I with them. Reading your words, what you wrote, how you were lonely sometimes and afraid, but always brave; the way you saw the world, its colors and textures and sounds, I felt - I felt the way you thought, hoped, felt, dreamt. I felt I was dreaming and thinking and feeling you. I dreamed what you dreamed, wanted what you wanted - and then I realized that truly I just wanted you."

"Malachi scowled. I don't remember the Clave inviting you into the Glass City, Magnus Bane. They didn't, Magnus said. Your wards are down. Really? the Consul's voice dripped sarcasm. I hadn't noticed. Magnus looked concerned. That's terrible. Someone should have told you. He glanced at Luke. Tell him the wards are down."

Love quotes

"Out of the corner of her eye she thought she saw Jace shoot her a look of white rage - but when she glanced at him, he looked as he always did: easy, confident, slightly bored. In future, Clarissa, he said, it might be wise to mention that you already have a man in your bed, to avoid such tedious situations. You invited him into bed? Simon demanded, looking shaken. Ridiculous, isn't it? said Jace. We would never have all fit. I didn't invite him into bed, Clary snapped. We were just kissing. Just kissing? Jace's tone mocked her with its false hurt. How swiftly you dismiss our love."

Quotes about life

"I was thinking about the first time I ever saw you, he said, and how after that I couldn't forget you. I wanted to, but I couldn't stop myself. I forced Hodge to let me be the one who came to find you and bring you back to the Institue. And even back then, in that stupid coffee shop, when I saw you sitting on that couch with Simon, even then that felt wrong to me I should have been the one sitting with you. The one who made you laugh like that. I couldn't get rid of that feeling. That it should have been me. And the more I knew you, the more I felt itit had never been like that for me before. I'd always wanted a girl and then gotten to know her and not wanted her anymore, but with you the feeling just got stronger and stronger until that night when you showed up at Renwick's and I knew."

Quotes about life

"What are all these? Clary asked. Vials of holy water, blessed knives, steel and silver blades, Jace said, piling the weapons on the floor beside him, electrum wire - not much use at the moment but it’s always good to have spares - silver bullets, charms of protetion, crucifixes, stars of David- Jesus, said Clary I doubt he’d fit. Jace. Clary was appalled."

Quotes about life

"Isabelle drifted over, Jace a pace behind her. She was wearing a long black dress with boots and an even longer cutaway coat of soft green velvet, the color of moss. 'I can't believe you did it!' she exclaimed. 'How did you get Magnus to let Jace leave?' 'Traded him for Alec,' Clary said. Isabelle looked mildly alarmed. 'Not permanently?' 'No,' said Jace. 'Just for a few hours. Unless I don't come back,' he added thoughtfully. 'In which case, maybe he does get to keep Alec. Think of it as a lease with an option to buy.' 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.'"

Love quotes

"And now I’m looking at you, he said, and you’re asking me if I still want you, as if I could stop loving you. As if I would want to give up the thing that makes me stronger than anything else ever has. I never dared give much of myself to anyone before – bits of myself to the Lightwoods, to Isabelle and Alec, but it took years to do it – but, Clary, since the first time I saw you, I have belonged to you completely. I still do. If you want me."

"Don't order any of the faerie food, said Jace, looking at her over the top of his menu. It tends to make humans a little crazy. 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."
