“I thought you needed me,” Jem said. "There is a wall you have built about yourself, Will, and I have never asked you why. But no one should shoulder every burden alone. I thought you would let me inside if I became your parabatai, and then you would have at least someone to lean upon. I did wonder what my death would mean for you. I used to fear it, for your sake. I feared you would be left alone inside that wall. But now … something has changed. I do not know why. But I know that it is true." "That what is true?" Will’s fingers were still digging into Jem’s wrist. "That the wall is coming down.”


TID: Clockwork Prince’s little summary from Will’s POV;

“Demon pox, oh demon pox just how is it acquired? One must go down to the bad part of town until one is very tired. Demon pox, oh demon pox, I had it all along- Not the pox you, foolish blocks, I mean this very song- For I was right and you were wrong!”

“Sometimes, when I have to do something I don’t want to do, I pretend I’m a character from a book. It’s easier to know what they would do.”


"Life is a book and there are a thousand pages I have not yet read."
