"With tears running down her face, Cecily had reminded him of the moment at her wedding to Gabriel when he had delivered a beautiful speech praising the groom, at the end of which he had announced, “Dear God, I thought she was marrying Gideon. I take it all back,”" Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Princess
Our hearts, they need a mirror, Tessa. We see our better selves in the eyes of those who love us.
There are so many things worse than death. Not to be loved or not to be able to love: that is worse.
No one can say that death in me a willing comrade, or that I went easily.
