Latest quotes added:

Jace Herondale: You know, I pray every day... every day to the angels that they will see that our love is stronger than their spite.

Simon Lewis: I know how much you're hurting. But she'd want you to move on, to find someone else.

Jace Herondale: There is no one else.

Maia Roberts: What about you? How's your book coming along?

Simon Lewis: Ooh! I finally came up with a title. Unseen World: The Divine Implements by Ezekiel J. Russo.

Maia Roberts: Ooh! Nice pen name.

Simon Lewis: I wish I could use my name, though. Clary would be really excited to see that the graphic novel we started working on so long ago was finally finished.

(Jace is reading Clary's letter...)

Clary Fairchild: By the time you read this letter, my memories of you and the Shadow World will be gone. It was the price the angels made me pay for the runes I've created. But I have no regrets. Even if I don't remember you, you will always be in my heart...

Jace Herondale: You're the best thing that ever happened to me, Clary Fairchild.

Clary Fairchild: Every single cell in my body loves you. And when those cells die and new ones are born, those cells love you even more. So, Jace, no matter what happens, my love for you will never die.

Izzy Lightwood: How is life as a mundane?

Raphael Santiago: It's amazing. I'm finally able to pursue a calling I've had since I was a kid.

Simon Lewis: Celebrity tamale chef. Men's tailor?

Raphael Santiago: Yeah, no. I joined the seminary.

Izzy Lightwood: You're gonna be a priest?

Raphael Santiago: One day. But I have to get back in touch with my God first.

Lorenzo Rey (to Magnus): I never had a family. Never thought one was even possible. But the way your loved ones rallied for you, for each other, showed me a family doesn't need to be something that you're born into. Families can be made. One day, I hope to be as lucky as you in finding one of my own.

Alec Lightwood: Magnus is taking care of everything.

Jace Herondale: Right.

Alec Lightwood: But there's a few things I have to do. Like asking you to be my suggenes.

Jace Herondale: Again?

Alec Lightwood: Again. Yeah.

Jace Herondale: Alec, of course.

Jonathan Morgenstern: You want me to be your weapon.

Seelie Queen: I want you to be my king. Together, we will destroy the Shadowhunters and rule the earthly realm side by side.

Jonathan Morgenstern: I prefer to rule alone.

(Seelie Queen turns into the child version of herself...)

Seelie Queen: Please, Jonathan. Please. You wouldn't dare hurt a child. Have mercy.

Jonathan Morgenstern: Mercy is for humans. And I'm no longer human.

Alec Lightwood: "You are cordially invited to the wedding of Alexander Gideon Lightwood and Magnus Bane." Tonight?

Magnus Bane: Why wait even a day longer? After everything we've been through, who knows what crisis will befall us tomorrow.
