Quote Corner #31: Clockwork Angel

Happy Tuesday! I hope you’re all having a fantastic day!! ❤
Today I am sharing my favourite quotes from Cassandra Clare’s Clock work Angel because, let’s face it, we could all do with a little William Herondale in our lives. ❤
Happy reading!! 🙂


“One must always be careful of books,” said Tessa, “and what is inside them, for words have the power to change us.”

“Will looked horrified. “What kind of monster could possibly hate chocolate?”

“You know,” Gabriel said, “there was a time I thought we could be friends, Will.”
“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.”

“There’s plenty of sense in nonsense sometimes, if you wish to look for it.”

“Remember when you tried to convince me to feed a poultry pie to the mallards in the park to see if you could breed a race of cannibal ducks?”
“They ate it too,” Will reminisced. “Bloodthirsty little beasts. Never trust a duck.”

“My name is Herondale,” the boy said cheerfully. “William Herondale, but everyone calls me Will. Is this really your room? Not very nice, is it?” He wandered toward the window, pausing to examine the stacks of books on her bedside table, and then the bed itself. He waved a hand at the ropes. “Do you often sleep tied to the bed?”

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

“Are you implying that shreds of my reputation remain intact?” Will demanded with mock horror. “Clearly I have been doing something wrong. Or not something wrong, as the case may be.”
He banged on the side of the carriage. “Thomas! We must away at once to the nearest brothel. I seek scandal and low companionship.”


Ahh, this is making me miss this series (and Will) too much!
Am I the only one constantly torn between rereading old favourites and picking up new books and series?!?

  1. Ahhh I love this post! I also wasn’t the biggest fan of this book – it really did suffer from a slow middle and I got pretty bored. But it had some great quotes. It was so great seeing Magnus bane in this new setting! I’m not that bothered with reading all the infernal devices but I stupidly bought them all so I guess I will be… (hate it when that happens). I am interested in the Magnus Bane chronicles (I’ve pretty much lost count of the other books ha). Here’s my review of the clockwork angel, check it out 🙂 https://hundredsandthousandsofbooks.blog/2020/10/21/everything-wrong-with-the-clockwork-angel/
