Quote #10

Clary wondered if there were any ugly vampires, or maybe any fat ones. Maybe they didn't make vampires out of ugly people. Or maybe ugly people just didn't want to live forever. (14.183)

Jeez, reality check, Clary. Just because someone might be considered "ugly" (and who's to judge?), doesn't mean they have no other reason to live.

Quote #11

"[Isabelle] always wanted to be small and delicate, you know. She hates being taller than most boys." (17.75)

Even pretty girls have body issues. Like man shoulders and sucky nail beds.
