Any compromise on mere fundamentals is a surrender. For it is all give and no take. Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. If I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning. When you are right, you have no need to be angry.
When you are wrong, you have no right to be angry. The Seven Sins are: Wealth without work. Pleasure without conscience. Knowledge without character. Commerce without morality. Science without humanity. Religion without sacrifice. Politics without principle. There is a higher court than courts of justice and that is the court of conscience. It supercedes all other courts. Morality which depends upon the helplessness of a man or woman has not much to recommend it. Morality is rooted in the purity of our hearts. Just as a man would not cherish living in a body other than his own, so do nations not like to live under other nations, however noble and great the latter may be.
Increase of material comforts, it may be generally laid down, does not in any way whatsoever conduce to moral growth. Whenever you are confronted with an opponent. Conquer him with love. Relationships are based on four principles: respect , understanding, acceptance and appreciation. If your heart acquires strength, you will be able to remove blemishes from others without thinking evil of them. Whether humanity will consciously follow the law of love, I do not know. But that need not disturb me. The law will work just as the law of gravitation works, whether we accept it or not.
The person who discovered the law of love was a far greater scientist than any of our modern scientists. A man who was completely innocent, offered himself as a sacrifice for the good of others, including his enemies, and became the ransom of the world. It was a perfect act. Hatred ever kills, love never dies. Such is the vast difference between the two. What is obtained by love is retained for all time. What is obtained by hatred proves a burden in reality for it increases hatred.
Forgiveness is choosing to love. It is the first skill of self-giving love. I believe that the sum total of the energy of mankind is not to bring us down but to lift us up, and that is the result of the definite, if unconscious, working of the law of love. Let the first act of every morning be to make the following resolve for the day: I shall not fear anyone on Earth. I shall fear only God. I shall not bear ill will toward anyone. I shall not submit to injustice from anyone. I shall conquer untruth by truth. And in resisting untruth, I shall put up with all suffering.
I claim that human mind or human society is not divided into watertight compartments called social, political and religious. All act and react upon one another. Power is of two kinds. One is obtained by the fear of punishment and the other by acts of love. Power based on love is a thousand times more effective and permanent then the one derived from fear of punishment.
Interdependence is and ought to be as much the ideal of man as self-sufficiency. Man is a social being. I look only to the good qualities of men. Civilization is the encouragement of differences. America aims at having a car for every citizen. I do not. Always aim at complete harmony of thought and word and deed.
Always aim at purifying your thoughts and everything will be well. Constant development is the law of life, and a man who always tries to maintain his dogmas in order to appear consistent drives himself into a false position. The less you possess , the less you want, the better you are. And better for what? Not for enjoyment of this life, but for enjoyment of personal service to the fellow-beings; service which you dedicate yourself, body, soul and mind. You have to do the right thing. Part 3. You may never know what results come from your action. There is really no slavery equal to that of the desires.
All the sages have declared from the house-tops that man can be his own worst enemy as well as his best friend.

To be free or to be a slave lies in his own hands. And what is true for the individual is true for society. If by abundance you mean everyone having plenty to eat and drink and to clothe himself with, enough to keep his mind trained and educated, I should be satisfied. But I should not like to pack more stuffs in my belly than I can digest and more things than I can ever usefully use. But neither do I want poverty, penury, misery, dirt and dust in India. He who would sacrifice his life for others has hardly time to reserve for himself a place in the sun. True humility means most strenuous and constant endeavor entirely directed towards the service of humanity.
Just as one must not receive, so must one not possess anything which one does not really need. It would be a breach of this principle to possess unnecessary food-stuffs, clothing, or furniture. For instance, one must not keep a chair if one can do without it. I know that I have still before me a difficult path to traverse. I must reduce myself to zero. So long as a man does not of his own free will put himself last among his fellow creatures, there is no salvation for him.
Ahimsa is the farthest limit of humility. My imperfections and failures are as much a blessing from God as my successes and my talents and I lay them both at his feet. When I admire the wonders of a sunset or the beauty of the moon, my soul expands in the worship of the creator. The very first step in nonviolence is that we cultivate in our daily life, as between ourselves, truthfulness, humility, tolerance, loving kindness. There is an orderliness in the universe, there is an unalterable law governing everything and every being that exists or lives. It is no blind law; for no blind law can govern the conduct of living beings.
One, who abandons all desires, is free from pride and selfishness and behaves as one apart, finds peace. The main purpose of life is to live rightly, think rightly, act rightly. The soul must languish when we give all our thought to the body. I do not want to foresee the future.
The Best Mahatma Gandhi Quotes Ever
I am concerned with taking care of the present. God has given me no control over the moment following. Freedom is never dear at any price. It is the breath of life. What would a man not pay for living? Truth never damages a cause that is just. The seeker after truth should be humbler than the dust. The world crushes the dust under its feet, but the seeker after truth should so humble himself that even the dust could crush him.
Only then, and not till then, will he have a glimpse of truth. There is nothing on earth that I would not give up, excepting of course, two things and two things only, truth and nonviolence. Truth is by nature self-evident. As soon as you remove the cobwebs of ignorance that surround it, it shines clear. Silence has now become both a physical and spiritual necessity for me.
Originally it was taken to relieve the sense of pressure. Then I wanted time for writing. After, however, I had practiced it for some time I saw the spiritual value of it. It suddenly flashed across my mind that that was the time when I could best hold communion with God. And now I feel as though I was naturally built for silence. What is Truth? All that I can in true humility present to you is that Truth is not to be found by anybody who has not got an abundant sense of humility. If you would swim on the bosom of the ocean of Truth you must reduce yourself to zero. An error does not become truth by reason of multiplied propagation, nor does truth become error because nobody sees it.
But it is impossible for us to realize perfect truth so long as we are imprisoned in this mortal frame. Truth alone will endure, all the rest will be swept away before the tide of time. Truth, purity, self-control, firmness, fearlessness, humility, unity, peace, and renunciation — these are the inherent qualities of a civil resister. Silence becomes cowardice when occasion demands speaking out the whole truth and acting accordingly. In the midst of death life persists. Fear of death makes us devoid both of valour and religion. For want of valour is want of religious faith.
Man lives freely only by his readiness to die, if need be, at the hands of his brother, never by killing him. Life and death are but phases of the same thing, the reverse and obverse of the same coin. I came alone in this world, I have walked alone in the valley of the shadow of death, and I shall quit alone when the time comes.
We do not know whether it is good to live or to die. Therefore, we should not take delight in living, nor should we tremble at the thought of death. We should be equiminded towards death. Where death without resistance or death after resistance is the only way, neither party should think of resorting to law-courts or help from the government. The wise are unaffected either by death or life. These are but faces of the same coin. If you want real peace in the world, start with children.
A man must arrange his physical and cultural circumstances so that they do not hinder him in his service of humanity, on which all his energies should be concentrated. The cry for peace will be a cry in the wilderness, so long as the spirit of nonviolence does not dominate millions of men and women. I offer you peace. I offer you love. I offer you friendship.
I see your beauty. I hear your need. I feel your feelings. But to befriend the one who regards himself as your enemy is the quintessence of true religion. The other is mere business. I believe in the essential unity of all people and for that matter of all lives. Therefore, I believe that if one person gains spiritually, the whole world gains, and if one person falls, the whole world falls to that extent.
Mankind is notoriously too dense to read the signs that God sends from time to time. We require drums to be beaten into our ears, before we should wake from our trance and hear the warning and see that to lose oneself in all, is the only way to find oneself. My life is an indivisible whole, and all my attitudes run into one another; and they all have their rise in my insatiable love for mankind.
Each one has to find his peace from within. And peace to be real must be unaffected by outside circumstances. Brute nature has been know to yield to the influence of love. You must never despair of human nature. The law of sacrifice is uniform throughout the world. To be effective it demands the sacrifice of the bravest and the most spotless. Service which is rendered without joy helps neither the servant nor the served.
But all other pleasures and possessions pale into nothingness before service which is rendered in a spirit of joy. Measures must always in a progressive society be held superior to men, who are after all imperfect instruments, working for their fulfilment. It has always been a mystery to me how men can feel themselves honoured by the humiliation of their fellow beings. If we are to teach real peace in this world, and if we are to carry on a real war against war, we shall have to begin with the children. Nonviolence is not a garment to be put on and off at will. Its seat is in the heart, and it must be an inseparable part of our being.
My life is dedicated to service of India through the religion of nonviolence which I believed to be the root of Hinduism. Non-cooperation is a measure of discipline and sacrifice, and it demands respect for the opposite views. If co-operation is a duty, I hold that non-co-operation also under certain conditions is equally a duty. It cannot be achieved through pure personal effort. We should meet abuse by forbearance. Human nature is so constituted that if we take absolutely no notice of anger or abuse, the person indulging in it will soon weary of it and stop.
Violent means will give violent freedom. That would be a menace to the world and to India herself. To deprive a man of his natural liberty and to deny to him the ordinary amenities of life is worse then starving the body; it is starvation of the soul, the dweller in the body. Nonviolence is the greatest force at the disposal of mankind.
It is mightier than the mightiest weapon of destruction devised by the ingenuity of man. I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary, the evil it does is permanent. Intolerance is itself a form of violence and an obstacle to the growth of a true democratic spirit. I have nothing new to teach the world. Truth and nonviolence are as old as the hills. All I have done is to try experiments in both on as vast a scale as I could. Nonviolence is not to be used ever as the shield of the coward.
It is the weapon of the brave. What we are doing to the forests of the world is but a mirror reflection of what we are doing to ourselves and to one another. Monotony is the law of nature. Look at the monotonous manner in which the sun rises. The monotony of necessary occupation is exhilarating and life giving. The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.
As for food, India has plenty of fertile land, there is enough water and no dearth of man power… The public should be educated to become self reliant. Once they know that they have got to stand on their own legs, it would electrify the atmosphere. The purpose of life is undoubtedly to know oneself. We cannot do it unless we learn to identify ourselves with all that lives. The sum-total of that life is God. I want to realize brotherhood or identity not merely with the beings called human, but I want to realize identity with all life, even with such things as crawl upon earth.
I hold flesh-food to be unsuited to our species. We err in copying the lower animal world if we are superior to it. I do feel that spiritual progress does demand at some stage that we should cease to kill our fellow creatures for the satisfaction of our bodily wants.
They had also brought out the truth that man eats not for enjoyment but to live. Human nature will find itself only when it fully realizes that to be human it has to cease to be beastly or brutal. When I see a cow, it is not an animal to eat, it is a poem of pity for me and I worship it and I shall defend its worship against the whole world. The basis of my vegetarianism is not physical, but moral. If anybody said that I should die if I did not take beef tea or mutton, even on medical advice, I would prefer death.
That is the basis of my vegetarianism. I submit that scientists have not yet explored the hidden possibilities of the innumerable seeds, leaves and fruits for giving the fullest possible nutrition to mankind. Cow-slaughter and man-slaughter are in my opinion two sides of the same coin. There is no need of a teacher for those who know how to think.
A wise parent allows the children to make mistakes. It is good for them once in a while to burn their fingers. Responsibility will mellow and sober the youth and prepare them, for the burden they must discharge. Real education has to draw out the best from the boys and girls to be educated. This can never be done by packing ill-assorted and unwanted information into the heads of the pupils. It becomes a dead weight crushing all originality in them and turning them into mere automata.
An intellect that is developed through the medium of socially useful labour will be an instrument for service and will not easily be led astray or fall into devious paths. I hold that, as the largest part of our time is devoted to labour for earning our bread, our children must from their infancy be taught the dignity of such labour. Our first duty is that we should not be a burden on society, i. From this point of view self-sufficiency itself is a kind of service. After becoming self-sufficient we shall use our spare time for the service of others. If all become self-sufficient, none will be in trouble.
Given the right kind of teachers, our children will be taught the dignity of labour and learn to regard it as an integral part and a means of their intellectual growth, and to realize that it is patriotic to pay for their training through their labour. Education must be of a new type for the sake of the creation of a new world. Character cannot be built with mortar and stone.
It cannot be built by hands other than your own. The Principal and the Professor cannot give you character from the pages of books. Character building comes from their very lives really speaking, it must come from within yourselves. When it is remembered that the primary aim of all education is, or should be, the moulding of the character of pupils, a teacher who has a character to keep need not lost heart. If teachers impart all the knowledge in the world to their students but inculcate not truth and purity among them, they will have betrayed them and instead of raising them set them on the downward road to perdition.
Persistent questioning and healthy inquisitiveness are the first requisite for acquiring learning of any kind. The students should be, above all, humble and correct… The greatest to remain great has to be the lowliest by choice. Let us now cry a halt and concentrate on education the child properly through manual work, not as a side activity, but as the prime means of intellectual training.
You have to train the boys in one occupation or another. Round this special occupation you will train up his mind, his body, his handwriting, his artistic sense, and so on. He will be master of the craft he learns. If India is not to declare spiritual bankruptcy, religious instruction of its youth must be held to be at least as necessary as secular instruction. Confession of errors is like a broom which sweeps away the dirt and leaves the surface brighter and clearer.
I feel stronger for confession. There will have to be rigid and iron discipline before we achieve anything great and enduring, and that discipline will not come by mere academic argument and appeal to reason and logic. Discipline is learnt in the school of adversity. Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is the truth. I do not want my house to be walled in on all sides and my windows to be stifled. I want all the cultures of all lands to be blown about my house as freely as possible. But I refuse to be blown off my feet by any.
Moral authority is never retained by any attempt to hold on to it. It comes without seeking and is retained without effort. There is nothing more potent than thought. Deed follows word and word follows thought. The word is the result of a mighty thought, and where the thought is mighty and pure the result is always mighty and pure. It is my own firm belief that the strength of the soul grows in proportion as you subdue the flesh. I want freedom for the full expression of my personality.
Man has always desired power. Ownership of property gives this power. Man hankers also after posthumous fame based on power. I have implicit faith in that promise. Life is an aspiration. Its mission is to strive after perfection, which is self-realization. The ideal must not be lowered because of our weaknesses or imperfections. Nonviolent resistance implies the very opposite of weakness. A definite forgiveness would mean a definite recognition of our strength.
If we were strong, self-respecting and not susceptible to frightfulness, the foreign rulers would have been powerless for mischief. He is not dependent on us. We are dependent on him. He is not an interruption in our work. He is the purpose of it. He is not an outsider in our business. He is part of it. We are not doing him a favor by serving him.
He is doing us a favor by giving us an opportunity to do so. If patience is worth anything, it must endure to the end of time. And a living faith will last in the midst of the blackest storm. I claim to be a simple individual liable to err like any other fellow mortal. I own, however, that I have humility enough to confess my errors and to retrace my steps. Change yourself — you are in control. The human body is meant solely for service, never for indulgence.
The secret of happy life lies in renunciation. Renunciation is life. Indulgence spells death. He who runs to the doctor, vaidya, or hakim for every little ailment, and swallows all kinds of vegetable and mineral drugs, not only curtails his life, but by becoming the slave of his body instead of remaining its master, loses self-control, and ceases to be a man.
Not to have control over the senses is like sailing in a rudderless ship, bound to break to pieces on coming in contact with the very first rock.
We but mirror the world. All the tendencies present in the outer world are to be found in the world of our body. If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. Part 4. This is the divine mystery supreme. A wonderful thing it is and the source of our happiness. We need not wait to see what others do. Fasting unto death is the last and the most potent weapon in the armoury of Satyagraha a policy of passive political resistance.
It is a sacred thing. But it must be accepted with all its implications. It is not the fast itself, but what it implies that matters. Not until we have reduced ourselves to nothingness can we conquer the evil in us. God demands nothing less than complete self-surrender as the price for the only real freedom that is worth having. Every moment of your life is infinitely creative and the universe is endlessly bountiful.
Just put forth a clear enough request, and everything your heart desires must come to you. I have naturally formed the habit of restraining my thoughts. A thoughtless word hardly ever escaped my tongue or pen. Experience has taught me that silence is part of the spiritual discipline of a votary of truth. We find so many people impatient to talk. All this talking can hardly be said to be of any benefit to the world. Jace was able to track Madzie and found her with Valentine—though Jace had his suspicions that it was a trap because he was able to track them too easily but was too desperate to get Madzie to Clary and save her to care.

Though Clary was cured once she was held by Madzie, she was Portaled away, and Jace, Luke, and Simon once again tracked them to Valentine's hideout. Though they were able to rescue Clary, Simon was taken. With Dot's prompting and Magnus's interpretation of the vision Ithuriel gave them, they deduced that Jace was the demonic Morgenstern that could destroy the Sword with his touch, but that it would also destroy him in the process. With this in mind, Jace plotted to touch and destroy the Sword, which Clary was adamantly against, thinking it would kill him.
Nonetheless, Jace and Luke traveled to the Institute, which Valentine had just infiltrated to activate the Sword with the Institute's angelic power core once Clary arrived, and left Clary with Magnus. Other Downworlders arrived to rush the Institute and Valentine once he'd destroyed the Sword. Jace shapeshifted into Clary, entered the Institute and was delivered to Valentine. Jace saw the state Simon was in and let him drink his blood, after which his shape-shifting rune failed and revealed his disguise.
He and Simon were able to fight their way out and made their way to the center, where the Sword was being held. He did not anticipate Clary's arrival and found her being pulled by Valentine to the Sword. With Simon's help, Valentine and the Circle members guarding the Sword were incapacitated, allowing Jace to get to the Sword. Because of the pure angel blood he did not realize he had, Jace unwittingly activated the Sword and witnessed the aftermath after Valentine used it to kill the Downworlder army he and Luke had gathered, horrified.
Outside, Jace stopped Valentine before he could kill Luke and confronted him for the truth before attempting to kill him. Valentine told him that he led him to believe that he had demon's blood knowing that Jace could also activate the Sword for him, but that thinking he could destroy it instead of activate it would make him willing to touch it. With the "truth sword" still in Valentine's hands, Jace also learned he wasn't his son, and was thus not Clary's brother. Jace was able to take Valentine down but stopped short of killing him because Clary reminded him that they needed the Cup, and Valentine may be the only one who knew where it was.
Clary and Jace later realized that the sword was gone. Jace intended to tell Clary that they weren't siblings, but hesitated after seeing Clary happy with Simon. With the Inquisitor , Imogen Herondale , in the Institute interrogating Valentine and temporarily handling Institute affairs, Jace and Clary were both placed under her scrutiny, tested so they could understand their abilities.
At some point, Jace learned that he had the ability to remotely activate his runes without a stele. In an accidental escape of Valentine set up by the Greater Demon Azazel , who switched Valentine with Magnus , Jace was taken captive by Valentine and used as leverage against Imogen. Valentine offered up Jace in exchange for his body. To convince her, Valentine revealed to them that Jace was her grandson, surprising both Jace and Imogen. After Clary, Sebastian , and Alec rescued him, the recent revelation brought him and his grandmother together for the first time. Imogen gave Jace a Herondale family ring ,  and named him the new head of the Institute.
Jace's first day as head of the Institute came with the difficult times the Shadowhunter-Downworlder relations was going through because of the recent activation of the Soul-Sword. Jace was tasked with heading up the tagging of Downworlders with trackers, creating further tension. The decision was overturned when Kaelie —a Seelie Jace used to sleep with—was revealed to be the killer of various Shadowhunters, setting up other Downworld species to start a war. Jace soon passed on the title of head of the Institute to Alec, whom he always thought was more deserving of the position and tried to recommend to Imogen from the beginning.
After all the tension with the werewolves, Jace went for drinks at the Hunter's Moon. In the spur of the moment, Jace ended up sleeping with Maia , whom he clashed most intensely with regarding the tracking chips. While Jace was hung up on Clary, Maia had also developed feelings for Clary's boyfriend, Simon , and the pair saw their time together as a fun distraction. The trip was in fact a trick, part of her attempt to earn Simon's, who insisted on accompanying Clary and whom the Queen expected, trust and alliance.
The Queen trapped Jace and Simon and had Clary get "the kiss she most desired": a kiss with Jace,  prompting Simon to break up with her and further confusing and making things more awkward between Jace and Clary. Jace and Clary avoiding each other did not last, particularly when Valentine escaped. Because the Clave did not heed his advice, Jace continued his investigations separately until Clary found out. With Clary's rune powers, she created a Portal rune and they Portaled to Idris together.
Upon arriving, Clary accidentally ingested water from the Lake Lyn , driving her temporarily out of her mind until Jace and Isabelle were able to corner her and Jace was able to activate her iratze with his own rune powers. Though they found the cabin empty—recently vacated—they found journals where Valentine kept records of his observations of two Jonathans, making them realize that Clary's brother Jonathan was alive. Jace's adoptive little brother Max managed to trace back Jonathan's things to the Englishman they came to know and trust as Sebastian.
After locking down the Institute, they were able to expose his fraud. In pursuit of Valentine and Jonathan in an effort to stop them from uniting the Mortal Instruments , Jonathan confronted him in a fight. With Isabelle's help, Jace killed Jonathan and threw him into a river. Jace and Clary pursued Valentine to Idris.
When they reached Lake Lyn, Jace was caught by surprise by Valentine, who stabbed him in the chest.
460 Mahatma Gandhi Quotes To Bring The Best Out Of You
Jace died, devastating Clary. Before Valentine could finalize his deal with the summoned Angel Raziel , Clary attacked and killed him and took from him the wish he had compelled from Raziel. With the wish, Clary asked for Jace back, and Raziel stayed true to his word and resurrected him. Jace felt the consequences of being brought back to life, with intense pain. Because of his love for Clary, Lilith was only able to control Jace by putting him to sleep first.
As a means of counteracting his strong love for Clary,  Lilith sent him recurring dreams of killing her, some of which involved Jonathan coaxing him into it. Possessed by an owl-faced creature loyal to Lilith, Jace began gathering mundanes to make sacrifices for Lilith. When he returned to the Institute and woke, he investigated the owl-faced creature himself and grew paranoid, believing that it was Jonathan, primarily due to his dreams. Jace chose to constantly refresh his Stamina rune instead of resting or sleeping, worsening his paranoia and fatigue.
Because Jace was technically unconscious whenever he did Lilith's bidding as the Owl, he had no memories of these moments. Jace first caught on to his blackouts when Clary snapped him out of one of these states while returning to the Institute under Lilith's orders, to release one of her disciples.
The growing awareness of these blackouts, and later the knowledge that mother had psychological problems, made him think that he was going crazy. Taking a break from his worries, Jace decided to help Simon figure out who cancelled his gig. He spoke with Luke's pack , and when he learned that they weren't responsible, he went to Simon's new apartment and was immediately suspicious of his new roommate. He broke into Kyle's room and, seeing the wolfsbane in his room, found out that he was a werewolf and immediately confronted him about it.
When he found out that Kyle was working for the Praetor Lupus , he stopped interfering and later advised Simon to accept his help. Still under the belief that he was losing his mind, Jace decided to seek treatment from the Silent Brothers. Before he could go, however, Lilith made him drink a potion to make him fall out of love from Clary, allowing Lilith to fully command Jace's loyalty. He began to seek the final disciple for Lilith's ritual, and when he was able to possess Ollie , Clary, Magnus, and Luke had caught onto him.
For his next task, Lilith instructed Jace to retrieve flesh from Valentine's grave at the Cemetery of the Disgraced in Idris. To gain access to it, he went to his grandmother Imogen ; when he noticed that Imogen was onto him, he killed her and took her thumb to give him the clearance he needed. After digging up Valentine's grave, he was intercepted by Alec, Isabelle, and Clary, who proceeded to trap him in a Malachi Configuration and was Portaled to Magnus's loft in hopes of finding a way to free Jace from Lilith's influence.
During this time, Lilith's hold over him continued to mess with his mind by torturing him mentally and psychologically, removing his siblings from his mind and heart, and having his psyche kill Clary in his mind repeatedly. Magnus used his magic to get Alec and Isabelle's own souls into Jace's mind through their parabatai bond. They found what was left of the real Jace, who begged them to kill him to stop him from continuing to do Lilith's bidding, but the Lightwood siblings were able to convince him to come out instead.
Before Jace could regain control over his body, they were all forcefully pulled away from the connection by Lilith who had arrived to take him back. Jace soon returned to Alicante and infiltrated the Gard , where both Valentine and Clary were being kept. He took out a rib from Valentine's body then took Clary,  delivering both to Lilith.
Lilith once again kissed him to revitalize him. Later, Luke, Alec, and Isabelle arrived and set off alarms to evacuate the lower floors. Liith ordered them to kill the invaders, but to steer clear of Simon. Jace jumped off of the roof and dropped down numerous floors to the ground and faced off against Alec. The Owl taunted Alec and dared him to hurt Jace's body; he told Alec that he would kill him slowly so that Jace could witness his own parabatai 's death by his own hands and started to fatally hurt him.
Magnus arrived in time, possessing a temporary massive amount of demonic power to break the mental cage that was holding Jace in. The magic worked, and though the Owl and Jace briefly fought for control, Jace broke free and puked out the demonic possession. Jace rushed over to try and heal Alec, horrified at what he had done. Reassured that Magnus would look after him, he went to check on Clary on the rooftop with Lilith and Jonathan.
He was too late, as Jonathan had already been resurrected, and Lilith had bound him to Clary's life force. By the time he arrived, Lilith's lair on the building was already gone, destroyed by Lilith's death and explosion; Clary and Jonathan were also nowhere to be found. He found Simon climbing up from the side of the building after almost falling off, and Simon told him that he, because of the explosion he caused, had killed Clary.
Examples of misquotes, lies and deception in Watchtower publications
Seen as narcissistic, gorgeous, determined and an expert Shadowhunter, Jace is a natural-born leader and is Alec's second-in-command whenever on assignments with him and Isabelle. Jace is headstrong and often prefers to act first and ask permission later. Tough, resourceful, and confident, Jace takes slaying demons in his stride, often admiring himself while he does so.
He is incredibly loyal to his allies and will stop at nothing to help and save them when necessary. Jace is prepared to risk his life and standing with the Clave to protect others, easily doing so to prevent harm to others. As the adoptive son of Maryse and Robert, he has a fierce love for his adoptive family, especially his adoptive siblings Alec and Isabelle, whom he can be quite protective of.
Like most of his kind, Jace was raised to view love and feelings as a distraction from their sacred mission, though he was not completely averse to it either, specifically after Clary's presence and influence. Jace is usually sarcastic and humorous. He is also incredibly stubborn, as seen with his recurring arguments with Alec. He can be impatient and easily annoyed when things are not moving forward, or when his skill is called into question. Beneath the humor lies a darker side, one where Jace has always felt like an outsider and was further driven to believe he was tainted after Valentine's lie.
He is prone to excessive drinking and indulging in sex to distract himself from more negative emotions, preferring those outlets to talking about his feelings with someone. Jace and Clary first met outside the Pandemonium Club, on the night that Clary's life changed. They began with a constant exchange of teasing or sarcastic remarks, but eventually began to care for one another, especially as Jace volunteered to guide Clary through her newly-discovered life as a Shadowhunter. Jace challenged authority, and his relationship with his family and colleagues, more than usual in his attempts to help and look after Clary, and despite his initial "to love is to destroy" outlook, he began to fall for her.
After a mission together, when Clary thought that she had killed Jace, Clary kissed him, and the pair began seeing each other. Clary immediately shot down her feelings for Jace,  and while she seemingly moved on with Simon, Jace struggled visibly and blamed his lapse of judgement—his love for Clary as more than a sister—on the demon blood he was led to believe he had. When Jace found out from Valentine that they were in fact not siblings, Jace was eager to tell Clary but decided against it when he thought that Clary was happier with Simon. Clary eventually found out from Valentine,  but nothing progressed immediately because of her relationship with Simon.
Clary's feelings for him, which she'd tried to suppress, were brought to the surface by the Seelie Queen who, using trickery, forced Clary to kiss the one she truly wanted: Jace.
