Favorite City of Fallen Angels Quotes

I love doing "my favorite quotes" blog posts for books that I truly enjoyed & had humorous quotes in them! It's funny because I actually kept a pen & paper with me at all times when reading this to write all the page numbers down just so I could have all the quotes I wanted without forgetting where they were for this post.

 Warning: These quotes contain spoilers in them, so beware!

Please Note: These "quotes" are just that, "quotes"--things characters said. These quotes don't include narration. If they did, this blog post would be HUGE. Second of all, these quotes are in no order at all. It would take me forever to figure out which ones I like more than others. Thirdly, if it's difficult to tell who is speaking to whom, I put the people's names in parentheses. Finally, all quotes come from the U.S. hardback version.

Now, here are my favorite quotes from City of Fallen Angels, book 4 of The Mortal Instruments:

"I suppose you've always been amazing at this stuff."        
"I was born amazing." --Clary & Jace referring to Jace's ability to do flips, p. 38

"No. That's Clary; she's my best friend. And she has a boyfriend. Like, really, really, really has a boyfriend. The nuclear bomb of boyfriends. Trust me on this one."--Simon to Jordan after Jordan asked if Clary was Simon's girlfriend, pp.94-95

"What were you dreaming about?"
"You. I always dream about you."
"Oh, yeah? Because I thought you were having a nightmare."
"Sometimes I dream you're gone. I keep wondering when you'll figure out how much better you could do and leave me."
"I wish I could say things the way you do. Everything you say, the words you choose, they're so perfect. You always find the right quote, or the right thing to say to make me believe you love me. If I can't convince you that I'll never leave you--"
"Just say it again."
"I'll never leave you."
"No matter what happens, what I do?"
"I'd never give up on you. Never. What I feel about you--It's the most important thing I've ever felt." --Clary & Jace, p. 75

"It means that love is the most powerful force in the world. That love can do anything." --Jace explaining an Italian quote that he said, p. 76

"Aren't they supposed to be hiring someone else to train me full-time anyway?"
"Yes, and I'm worried that if you get into the habit of making out with your instructors, you'll wind up making out with him, too."
"Don't be sexist. They could find me a female instructor."
'In that case you have my permission to make out with her, as long as I can watch."
"Nice. You're just worried they'll hire a male instructor and he'll be hotter than you."
"Hotter than me?"
"It could happen. You know, theoretically."--Clary & Jace, p. 77

"I can keep a perfectly good eye on Simon, thank you. He's my neophyte Downworlder to mock and boss around, not yours."--Jace to Jordan, p. 144

"I didn't even think you liked me all that much. Is this one of those keep-your-friends-close-and-your-enemies-closer things?"
"I thought it was keep your friends close so you have someone to drive the car when you sneak over to your enemy's house at night and throw up in his mailbox."
"I'm pretty sure that's not it." --Simon & Jace, p. 145

"What, bored with my company already?"
"Let me ask you something. Do you find me fascinating to be around?"
"What was that? Sorry, I think I fell asleep for a moment. Do, continue with whatever mesmerizing thing you were saying."--Jace & Simon, pp.160 & 161

"Break up with her? Are you insane?" --Jace to Simon, p. 161

"Everything that happens to you matters to me."--Jace to Clary, p. 242

"Clary. You were right. This isn't coming from inside me. Something is doing this to me. To us. You know what that means? If I can be...cured...then I don't have to be afraid of myself when I'm around you anymore. I'd spend a thousand nights in the Silent City for that."--Jace to Clary, p. 272

"You can't forget the things you did in the past, or you'll never learn from them."--Jordan, p. 296

"I could have asked for anything, and I asked for you. And I would do it again. I love you, Jace Wayland--Herondale--Lightwood--whatever you want to call yourself. I don't care. I love you and I will always love you, and pretending it could be any other way is just a waste of time."--Clary to Jace, p. 407

"Remember when I told you that I didn't know if there was a God or not, but either way, we were completely on our own? I still don't know the answer; I only knew that there was such a thing as faith, and that I didn't deserve to have it. And then there was you. You changed everything I believed in." --Jace to Clary, p. 407

"I don't want to let you out of my sight"--Jace to Clary, p. 409
