EMMA CARSTAIRS - The Dark Artifices 

“I don’t have magic powers, I’m not cursed or blessed. I can do exactly what everyone else can do. The only reason I’m good is because I train.”

Yes I know you’re hungover from drinking too much but I’m hungover from a fucking amazing book series I just read so you’re getting no sympathy from me

Me: “I love reading!!”

Person: “Oh cool, what do you read?”

Me, sweating nervously: “Oh haha…just…uh…books.”

MARK BLACKTHORN - The Dark Artifices 

“There was beauty in the idea of freedom, but it was an illusion. Every human heart was chained by love.”

“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. All those other things, they are the glass that contains the lamp, but you are the light inside.” 
― Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel
