Quotes-Clockwork Prince


I figured if I was going to post come quotes might  as well do it for a few books, and hey even maybe start a page for a collection.

Here are my quotes for Clockwork Prince

“But—but...” Will sputtered.
“Oh, leave it,” said Jem, kicking Will, not without affection, lightly on the ankle.
“She annexed my plan!”
“Will,” Tessa said firmly. “Do you care more about the plan being enacted or about getting credit for it?”
Will pointed a finger at her. “That,” he said. “The second one.”-Cassandra Clare-Clockwork Prince

“Ah,” said a voice from the doorway, “having your annual ‘everyone thinks Will is a lunatic’ meeting, are you? 
“It’s biannual,” said Jem. “And no, this is not that meeting.” -Cassandra Clare-Clockwork Prince

“You know," Gabriel said, "there was a time I thought we could be friends, Will."  -Cassandra Clare-Clockwork Prince 

"There was a time I thought I was a ferret," Will said, "but that turned out to be the opium haze. Did you know it had that effect? Because I didn't.” -Cassandra Clare-Clockwork Prince

“So you don't ever get angry at him?" 
Jem laughed out loud. "I would hardly say that. Sometimes I want to strangle him." 
"How on earth do you prevent yourself?" 
"I go to my favorite place in London," said Jem, "and I stand and look at the water, and I think about the continuity of life, and how the river rolls on, oblivious of the petty upsets in our lives." 
Tessa was fascinated. "Does that work?" 
"Not really, but after that I think about how I could kill him while he slept if I really wanted to, and then I feel better.” -Cassandra Clare-Clockwork Prince

“Demon pox, oh demon pox 
Just how is it acquired? 
One must go down to the bad part of town 
Until one is very tired. 
Demon pox, oh demon pox, I had it all along— 
Not the pox, you foolish blocks, 
I mean this very song— 
For I was right, and you were wrong!" 

"Will!" Charlotte shouted over the noise, "Have you LOST YOUR MIND? CEASE THAT INFERNAL RACKET! Jem—" 
Jem, rising to his feet, clapped his hands over Will's mouth. "Do you promise to be quiet?" he hissed into his friend's ear. 
Will nodded, blue eyes blazing. Tessa was staring at him in amazement; they all were. She had seen Will many things—amused, bitter, condescending, angry, pitying—but never giddy before. 
Jem let him go. "All right, then." 
Will slid to the floor, his back against the armchair, and threw up his arms. "A demon pox on all your houses!" he announced, and yawned. 
"Oh, God, weeks of pox jokes," said Jem. "We're in for it now.” -Cassandra Clare-Clockwork Prince

“Well,” Tessa said, sighting along the line of the knife, “you behave as if you dislike me. In fact, you behave as if you dislike us all.” 
“I don’t,” Gabriel said. “I just dislike him.” He pointed at Will. 
“Dear me,” said Will, and he took another bite of his apple. “Is it because I’m better-looking than you?” -Cassandra Clare-Clockwork Prince

“If I might make a suggestion,” said Will. “About twenty paces behind us, in the Council room, is Benedict. If you’d like to go back in there and try kicking him, I recommend aiming upward and a bit to the left—” -Cassandra Clare-Clockwork Prince

“Charlotte slammed the paper down onto her desk with an exclamation of rage. “Aloysius Starkweather is the most stubborn, hypocritical, obstinate, degenerate—” She broke off, clearly fighting for control of her temper. Tessa had never seen Charlotte’s mouth so firmly set into a hard line. 
“Would you like a thesaurus?” Will inquired. “You seem to be running out of words.” -Cassandra Clare-Clockwork Prince

“He gazed amusedly down the table at Tessa. “You’re the shape-changer, aren’t you?” he said. “Magnus Bane told me about you. No mark on you at all, they say.” 
Tessa swallowed and looked him straight in the eye. They were discordantly human eyes, ordinary in his extraordinary face. “No. No mark.” 
He grinned around his fork. “I do suppose they’ve looked everywhere?” 
“I’m sure Will’s tried,” said Jessamine in a bored tone.” -Cassandra Clare-Clockwork Prince

“I think I may be in love with you, Sophie," said Will. "Marriage could be in the cards.” -Cassandra Clare-Clockwork Prince

“Well, it seems a bit silly, looking there,” said Will. “It’s not like Mortmain’s going to lodge a complaint against the Shadow-hunters through official channels. ‘Very upset Shadowhunters refused to all die when I wanted them to. Demand recompense. Please mail cheque to A. Mortmain, 18 Kensington Road—”-Cassandra Clare-Clockwork Prince
“Yes, she doesn't really look like either of us, does she? Perhaps she's a girl who's fallen madly in love with me and persists in following me wherever I go."
"My talent is shape-shifting, Will, not acting," said Tessa, and at that Jem laughed out loud.”-Cassandra Clare-Clockwork Prince
“Patriotic?” Will looked smug. “I’ll tell you what’s patriotic,” he said. “In honor of my birthplace, I’ve the dragon of Wales tattooed on my—”-Cassandra Clare-Clockwork Prince
