Favorite Clockwork Angel Quotes

I love doing "my favorite quotes" blog posts for books that I truly enjoyed & had humorous quotes in them! .

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. If anything, they are in the order they were written. Example: A quote may come from page 90 and the next one will be from page 96. 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.

Warning: These quotes contain spoilers in them!

Now, here are my favorite quotes from Clockwork Angel, book one of The Infernal Devices:

"When you find a man you wish to marry, Tessa, remember this: You will know what kind of man he is not by the things he says, but by the things he does." --Aunt Harriet to Tessa, p. 33

"Oh, no. I hate chocolate."
"What kind of monster could possibly hate chocolate?"--Tessa & Will, p. 83

"One must always be careful of books, and what is inside them, for words have the power to change us."--Tessa to Will, p. 87

"Whatever you are physically, male or female, strong or weak, ill or healthy--all those things matter less than what your heart contains. If you have the soul of a warrior, you are a warrior. Whatever the color, the shape, the design of the shade that conceals it, the flame inside the lamp remains the same. You are that flame. That's what I believe." --Jem to Tessa, p. 283

"Must you go? I was rather hoping you'd stay and be a ministering angel, but if you must go, you must." (Jem to Tessa)
"I'll stay. I can minister angelically." (Will to Jem)
"None too convincingly. And you're not as pretty to look at as Tessa is." (Jem to Will)
"How rude. Many who have gazed upon me have compared the experience to gazing at the radiance of the sun." (Will to Jem)
"If they mean it gives you a headache, they aren't wrong." (Jem to Will) --p. 343

"It is as great a thing to love as it is to be loved. Love is not something that can be wasted." --Jem to Tessa, p. 470
