Favorite City of Glass Quotes

In my review of the City of Ashes, I included a section with my favorite quotes from it. I also posted a blog post not too long ago with my favorite quotes from City of Bones. It was a lot of fun to do, and I have decided to do another one for City of Glass

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

Please Note: There are many other quotes from this book that I love, there is no possible way I could include every single one of them. Secondly, these "quotes" are just that, "quotes"--things characters said. These quotes don't include narration. If they did, this blog post would be HUGE. Thirdly, these quotes are in no order at all. Fourthly, 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 Glass, book 3 of The Mortal Instruments:

"I had to try. And I did. But God knows, I don't want anyone but you. I don't even want to want anyone but you." --Jace, p. 209

"Good things come to those who wait." 
"I always thought that was 'Good things come to those who do the wave.' No wonder I've been so confused all my life."
"'Confused' is a nice word for it."--Maia, Simon, Jace, pp. 539-540

"You look happy." (Simon to Clary) "And a good thing for you that she does." (Simon to Jace)
"Is this the part where you tell me that if I hurt her, you'll kill me?" (Jace to Simon)
"No. If you hurt Clary, she's quite capable of killing you herself. Possibly with a variety of weapons." (Simon to Jace)
"Look, I just wanted to say that it's okay if you dislike me. If you make Clary happy, I'm fine with you." (Simon to Jace)
"I don't dislike you." (Jace to Simon) --pp. 534-535

"And I'm supposed to sit by while you date boys, fall in love with someone else, get married...? And meanwhile, I'll die a little bit more every day, watching." --Jace to Clary, p. 331

"There is no pretending. I love you, and I will love you until I die, and if there's a life after that, I'll love you then." --Jace to Clary, p. 331

"Clary, open your eyes." --Jace, p.497

"Because you asked him to. You could have had anything else in the world, and you asked for me." 
"But I don't want anything else in the world." --Jace & Clary, p. 498

"You're not my brother. You know that, right?"
"Yes, I know that." --Clary & Jace, p. 499

"You don't look like you."
"It's the dress. I don't usually wear things this...pretty."
"You always look beautiful." --Jace & Clary, p. 526

"I know, I'm just saying that I think I chose the way I did in part because of you. Since I've met you, everything I've done has been in part because of you. I can't untie myself from you, Clary--not my heart or my blood or my mind or any other part of me. And I don't want to." --Jace to Clary, explaining why he chose not to side with Valentine, p. 531

"I am a man, and men do not consume pink beverages. Get thee gone, woman, and bring me something brown."
"Brown is a manly color." --Jace & Isabelle, p. 534

"And now I'm looking at you, 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." --Jace, p. 532


  1. I just LOOOOVVE these quotes emily! great post, my favorite is when jace says he loves clary :) -josie

    1. Thanks! Glad you like this post :) Yeah, I'm a sucker for all the times Jace declares his love for Clary. I find it to be ironic considering that in the first book he said that declarations of love amuse him.

    2. it is ironic, I just think it's really sweet of him! :)

  2. Great quotes. I love all the funny ones!!! Especially whenever Simon talks. ;-) Great post, Emily. I <3 Jace and I am so excited for the movie next August!!

    1. Simon is pretty funny! Glad you like the post! :) I know, I'm super excited for the movie! Can't wait for the trailer!!
