The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare- My favorite quotes

If you read my Wrap up of January, you´ll find that last month I read “The Infernal Devices” by our queen Cassie Clare and I was delighted. I honestly don´t know why I didn´t give it a try before but, I´m more than pleased that I did. If you have been following Cassie since the beginning, you already noticed that she has a beautiful form of writing and, that since the firs book of “The Mortal Instruments” she grew a lot as a writer and that´s something that we can see in this trilogy. This book also carries a lot of beautiful phrases, poems and quotes. So today, I´ll share with you some of my favorites.

 

My favorite quotes from the first book: “Clockwork Angel”

 

“One must always be careful of books, and what´s inside them, for words have the power to change us.”

“There´s plenty of sense in nonsense sometimes, if you wish to look for it”

“What kind of monster could possibly hate chocolate?”

– Will Herondale

 

“It’s all right to love someone who doesn’t love you back, as long as they’re worth you loving them. As long as they deserve it.”

My favorite quotes from the second book: “Clockwork Prince”

“Magnus was an exception to many rules.”

“We, who are immortal, we are chained to this life by a chain of gold, and we dare not to sever it for fear of what lines beyond the drop.”

“You don´t even like poetry,” Tessa said. “No. But you make me want to write it.”

“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.”

“They say time heals all wounds, but that presumes the source of the grief is finite”

My favorite quotes from the third and last book: “Clockwork Princess”
