Mortal Instruments Quotes

Here are some of my favorite quotes from the book series of Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare: 🙂

“When you are old as I am, it is because you have learned to play the game correctly, to make the right alliances at the right times. To ally yourself not just with the powerful, but with those who you believe will make you powerful.” ~Camille Belcourt, City of Fallen Angels

“”My will and my desire were turned by love, the love that moves the sun and the other stars.” ~Dante, City of Fallen Angels
