How we cite our quotes:
The sight was as surreal as one of the abstract Magritte paintings Jocelyn had loved. This one, Clary thought, would be called The Stairs to Nowhere. (14.128)
Actually, we think a better name would be This is Not a Staircase,in honor of Magritte's famous work This is Not a Pipe.
[Jace] looked like a fair-haired angel from a Rembrandt painting. (17.8)
This is meant to be compliment, and something that Clary, an art student, would think, but it sure doesn't sound very masculine or heroic. Sorry, Gabriel.
