Cassandra Clare's books

If you can`t tell the truth to the people you care about the most, eventually you stop being able to tell the truth to yourself.

One must always be careful of books, [...] and what is inside them, for words have the power to change us.

Inanimate objects are harmless indeed [...]. But one cannot always say the same of the men who use them.

Cleverness that comes too late is hardly cleverness at all?

Only the very weak-minded refuse to be influenced by literature and poetry.

I love you, and I will love you until I die, and if there`s a life after that, I`ll love you then.

If you were half as funny as you thought you were, my boy, you`d be twice as funny as you are.

Growing up happens when you start having things you look back on and wish you could change.

Beauty fades, but cooking is eternal.

Maybe you never really had someone [...]. Maybe, no matter how much you loved them, they could slip through your fingers like water, and there was nothing you could do about it.

You never really hate anyone as much as someone you cared about once.

If you really love something, you never try to keep it the way it is forever. You have to let it be free to change.

When you find a man you wish to marry, [...] remember this: You will know what kind of man he is not by the things he says, but by the things he does.

All knowledge hurts.

You can only push the truth down for so long, and then it bubbles back up.
