Twilight Quotes: Bella Swan

By afterthebite · November 16, 2008 · 0 Comments · ·

A common phrase on our search engine is Twilight Quotes, so for your convenience, I'm posting here some Bella Swan quotes from Twilight.

Surely it was a good way to die, in the place of someone else, someone I loved. Noble, even. That ought to count for something.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Preface, p.1

When life offers you a dream so far beyond any of your expectations, it’s not reasonable to grieve when it comes to an end.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Preface, p.1

My primary motivation behind buying a car, despite the scarcity of my funds, was that I refused to be driven around town in a car with red and blue lights on top. Nothing slows down traffic like a cop.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 1, p.5

I do a good job of blocking painful, unnecessary things from my memory.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 1, p.6

The thing, I thought to myself… it had possibilities — as a nickname, at the very least.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 1, p.7

It was nice to be alone, not to have to smile and look pleased; a relief to stare dejectedly out the window at the sheeting rain and let just a few tears escape.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 1, p.9

Sometimes I wondered if I was seeing the same things through my eyes that the rest of the world was seeing through theirs. Maybe there was a glitch in my brain.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 1, p.11

Good luck tended to avoid me.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 1, p.11

I was expected, a topic of gossip no doubt. Daughter of the Chief’s flight ex-wife, come home at last.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 1, p.13

I can do this, I lied to myself feebly. No one was going to bite me.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 1, p.14

My mother is part albino.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 1, p.16

I tried to be diplomatic, but mostly I just lied a lot.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 1, p.17

I stared because their faces, so different, so similar, were all devastatingly, inhumanly beautiful.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 1, p.19

I felt a surge of pity, and relief. Pity because, as beautiful as they were, they were outsiders, clearly not accepted. Relief that I wasn’t the only newcomer here, and certainly not the most interesting by any standard.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 1, p.22

I’d noticed that his eyes were black – coal black.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 1, p.23

I peeked up at him one more time, and regretted it. He was glaring down at me again, his black eyes full of revulsion. As I flinched away from him, shrinking against my chair, the phrase if looks could kill suddenly ran through my mind.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 1, p.24

Forks was literally my personal hell on Earth.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 1, p.25

For an instant, I felt a thrill of genuine fear, raising the hair on my arms. The look only lasted a second, but it chilled me more than the freezing wind.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 1, p.27

It was ridiculous, and egotistical, to think that I could affect anyone that strongly. It was impossible. And yet I couldn’t stop worrying that it was true.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 2, p.31

It seemed excessive for them to have both looks and money. But as far as I could tell, life worked that way most of the time. It didn’t look as if it bought them any acceptance here.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 2, p.32

When I came here as a child, he would always remove the bullets as soon as he walked in the door. I guess he considered me old enough now not to shoot myself by accident, and not depressed enough to shoot myself on purpose.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 2, p.35

Once people start throwing wet stuff, I go inside.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 2, p.39

I was sure, though, in the instant our eyes met, that he didn’t look harsh or unfriendly as he had the last time I’d seen him. He looked merely curious again, unsatisfied in some way.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 2, p.41

His fingers were ice-cold, like he’d been holding them in a snowdrift before class. But that wasn’t why I jerked my hand away so quickly. When he touched me, it stung my hand as if an electric current had passed through us.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 2, p.45

I vividly remembered the flat black color of his eyes the last time he’d glared at me — the color was striking against the background of his pale skin and his auburn hair. Today, his eyes were a completely different color: a strange ocher, darker than butterscotch, but with the same golden tone.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 2, p.46

Hasn’t anyone ever told you? Life isn’t fair.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 2, p.49

I was in disbelief that I’d just explained my dreary life to this bizarre, beautiful boy who may or may not despise me.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 2, p.50

Edward Cullen was leaning against the front door of the Volvo, three cars down from me, and staring intently in my direction.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 2, p.52

I stared straight ahead as I passed the Volvo, but from a peripheral peek, I would swear I saw him laughing.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 2, p.52

In a lot of ways, living with Charlie was like having my own place, and I found myself reveling in the aloneness instead of being lonely.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 3, p.54

If I was being honest with myself, I knew I was eager to get to school because I would see Edward Cullen. And that was very, very stupid.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 3, p.54

Clearly, today was going to be nightmarish.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 3, p.54

Whatever the reason, Mike’s puppy dog behavior and Eric’s apparent rivalry with him were disconcerting. I wasn’t sure if I didn’t prefer being ignored.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 3, p.55

My throat suddenly felt tight. I wasn’t used to being taken care of, and Charlie’s unspoken concern caught me by surprise.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 3, p.54

Edward Cullen was standing four cars down from me, staring at me in horror. His face stood out from a sea of faces, all frozen in the same mask of shock.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 3, p.56

Just before I heard the shattering crunch of the van folding around the truck bed, something hit me, hard, but not from the direction I was expecting.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 3, p.56

A low oath made me aware that someone was with me, and the voice was impossible not to recognize. Two long, white hands shot out protectively in front of me, and the van shuddered to a stop a foot from my face, the large hands fitting providentially into a deep dent in the side of the van’s body.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 3, p.56

How did you get over here so fast?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 3, p.57

He unleashed the full, devastating power of his eyes on me, as if trying to communicate something crucial.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 3, p.58

When they’d lifted me away from the car, I had seen the deep dent in the tan car’s bumper — a very distinct dent that fit the contours of Edward’s shoulders… as if he had braced himself against the car with enough force to damage the metal frame…
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 3, p.59

I tried to think of a logical solution that could explain what I had just seen — a solution that excluded the assumption that I was insane.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 3, p.59

How come you aren’t strapped to a gurney like the rest of us?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 3, p.61

I don’t like to lie – so there’d better be a good reason why I’m doing it.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 3, p.65

I was positive that Edward’s defensive behavior in the hall was a confirmation of the bizarre things I still could hardly believe I’d witnessed.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 3, p.66

I was consumed by the mystery Edward presented. And more than a little obsessed by Edward himself.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 3, p.67

That was the first night I dreamed of Edward Cullen.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 3, p.67

I wondered to myself why no one else had seen him standing so far away, before he was suddenly, impossibly saving my life. With chagrin, I realized the probable cause — no one else was as aware of Edward as I always was. No one else watched him the way I did. How pitiful.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 4, p.69

He wished he hadn’t pulled me from the path of Tyler’s van — there was no other conclusion I could come to.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 4, p.70

I watched as his golden eyes grew perceptibly darker day by day. But in class I gave no more notice that he existed than he showed toward me. I was miserable.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 4, p.70

As always, I was electrically aware of Edward sitting close enough to touch, as distant as if he were merely an invention of my imagination.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 4, p.72

I didn’t want to get into the safety hazards that dancing presented, so I quickly made new plans.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 4, p.73

I sighed and opened my eyes. And Edward was staring at me curiously, that same, familiar edge of frustration even more distinct now in his black eyes.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 4, p.73

I couldn’t allow him to have this level of influence over me. It was pathetic. More than pathetic, it was unhealthy.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 4, p.74

I turned slowly, unwillingly. I didn’t want to feel what I knew I would feel when I looked at his too-perfect face.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 4, p.74

What? Are you speaking to me again?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 4, p.74

It’s too bad you didn’t figure that out earlier. You could have saved yourself all this regret.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 4, p.75

I almost had a stroke when I rounded the corner and saw a tall, dark figure leaning against the side of my truck.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 4, p.76

I considered taking out the rear of his shiny Volvo, but there were too many witnesses.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 4, p.77

In his rearview mirror, Edward’s eyes were on me. He was unquestionably shaking with laughter, as if he’d heard every word Tyler had said. My foot itched toward the gas pedal… one little bump wouldn’t hurt any of them, just that glossy silver paint job. I revved the engine.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 4, p.78

He must see how absorbed I was by him; he must not want to lead me on… so we couldn’t even be friends… because he wasn’t interested in me at all.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 4, p.79

I wasn’t interesting. And he was. Interesting… and brilliant… and mysterious… and perfect… and beautiful… and possibly able to lift full-sized vans with one hand.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 4, p.79

I tried to be crafty as I hid my horror.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 4, p.80

I thought you were supposed to be pretending I don’t exist, not irritating me to death.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 4, p.82

It felt like the heat of my anger should physically burn him, but he only seemed more amused.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 4, p.82

So you are trying to irritate me to death? Since Tyler’s van didn’t do the job?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 4, p.82

My palms tingled — I wanted so badly to hit something. I was surprised at myself. I was usually a nonviolent person.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 4, p.82

Do you have a multiple personality disorder?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 4, p.82

Are you trying to be funny?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 4, p.83

Stupid, shiny Volvo owner.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 4, p.83

It was difficult to believe that I hadn’t just imagined what Edward had said, and the way his eyes had looked. Maybe it was just a very convincing dream that I’d confused with reality. That seemed more probable than that I really appealed to him on any level.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 5, p.86

It was hard to believe that someone so beautiful could be real. I was afraid that he might disappear in a sudden puff of smoke, and I would wake up.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 5, p.87

I’m trying to figure out what you are.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 5, p.89

I had been vacillating during the last month between Bruce Wayne and Peter Parker. There was no way I was going to own up to that.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 5, p.89

I can’t imagine why that would be frustrating at all — just because someone refuses to tell you what they’re thinking, even if all the while they’re making cryptic little remarks specifically designed to keep you up at night wondering what they could possibly mean… now, why would that be frustrating?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 5, p.90

I just wondered… if you could warn me beforehand the next time you decide to ignore me for my own good. Just so I’m prepared.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 5, p.91

He was dangerous. He’d been trying to tell me that all along.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 5, p.93

I squeezed my eyes shut, hoping to die. Or, at the very least, not to throw up.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 5, p.96

Suddenly the sidewalk disappeared from beneath me. My eyes flew open in shock. Edward had scooped me up in his arms, as easily as if I weighed ten pounds instead of a hundred and ten.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 5, p.97

His voice was like melting honey. I could imagine how much more overwhelming his eyes would be.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 5, p.102

It was all I could do to keep from falling backward. He’d probably just drag me along anyway if I did.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 5, p.103

You are so pushy!
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 5, p.104

I was mentally calculating my chances of reaching the truck before he could catch me. I had to admit, they weren’t good.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 5, p.104

I tried to maintain what dignity I could as I got into his car. I wasn’t very successful — I looked like a half-drowned cat and my boots squeaked.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 5, p.104

My mom always says I was born thirty-five years old and that I get more middle-aged every year.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 5, p.106

I wasn’t looking forward to Friday, and it more than lived up to my non-expectations.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 6, p.110

The worst part about Friday was that, even though I knew he wasn’t going to be there, I still hoped.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 6, p.111

And I couldn’t stop the gloom that engulfed me as I realized I didn’t know how long I would have to wait before I saw him again.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 6, p.111

So it was going to be one of those days.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 6, p.113

On the one hand, I loved the tide pools. They had fascinated me since I was a child; they were one of the only things I ever looked forward to when I had to come to Forks. On the other hand, I’d also fallen into them a lot. Not a big deal when you’re seven and with your dad. It reminded me of Edward’s request — that I not fall into the ocean.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 6, p.116

I was completely absorbed, except for one small part of my mind that wondered what Edward was doing now, and trying to imagine what he would be saying if he were here with me.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 6, p.117

All I caught was that one of the girls was also named Jessica, and the boy who noticed me was named Jacob.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 6, p.118

It was like the first day of school all over again.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 6, p.119

It does great in a collision.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 6, p.120

He flashed a brilliant smile, looking at me appreciatively in a way I was learning to recognize.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 6, p.121

He’d said that the Cullens didn’t come here, but his tone had implied something more — that they weren’t allowed; they were prohibited.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 6, p.121

It was a stupid plan, but I didn’t have any better ideas. I hoped that young Jacob was as yet inexperienced around girls, so that he wouldn’t see through my sure-to-be-pitiful attempts at flirting.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 6, p.122

I tried to make my smile alluring, wondering if I was laying it on too thick. He smiled back, though, looking allured.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 6, p.123

But I really did like Jacob. He was someone I could easily be friends with.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 6, p.127

The shattering beats made it impossible for me to think — which was the whole purpose of the exercise.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 7, p.130

And then Edward stepped out from the trees, his skin faintly glowing, his eyes black and dangerous. He held up one hand and beckoned me to come to him. The wolf growled at my feet. I took a step forward, toward Edward. He smiled then, and his teeth were sharp, pointed.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 7, p.131

My subconscious had dredged up exactly the images I’d been trying so desperately to avoid. I was going to have to face them now.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 7, p.132

It was a relief, that one small entry, the one myth among hundreds that claimed the existence of good vampires.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 7, p.135

There was a thin ribbon of a trail that led through the forest here, or I wouldn’t risk wandering on my own like this. My sense of direction was hopeless; I could get lost in much less helpful surroundings.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 7, p.136

There was no rational explanation for how I was alive at this moment.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 7, p.137

Could the Cullens be vampires? Well, they were something. Something outside the possibility of rational justification was taking place in front of my incredulous eyes. Whether it be Jacob’s cold ones or my own superhero theory, Edward Cullen was not… human. He was something more.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 7, p.138

If Edward was a vampire — I could hardly make myself think the words — then what should I do? Involving someone else was definitely out. I couldn’t even believe myself; anyone I told would have me committed.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 7, p.138

The dark Edward in my dream last night was a reflection only of my fear of the word Jacob had spoken, and not Edward himself.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 7, p.139

I didn’t know if there ever was a choice, really. I was already in too deep. Now that I knew — if I knew — I could do nothing about my frightening secret. Because when I thought of him, of his voice, his hypnotic eyes, the magnetic force of his personality, I wanted nothing more than to be with him right now.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 7, p.139

This decision was ridiculously easy to live with. Dangerously easy.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 7, p.140

I should be afraid — I knew I should be, but I couldn’t feel the right kind of fear.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 7, p.141

I sketched inattentively along the margins of my homework. After a few minutes, I suddenly realized I’d drawn five pairs of dark eyes staring out of the page at me. I scrubbed them out with the eraser.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 7, p.142

Why couldn’t I ever have a pleasant conversation with Mike anymore without it getting awkward?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 7, p.144

I think… and if you ever repeat what I’m saying right now I will cheerfully beat you to death, but I think that would hurt Jessica’s feelings.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 7, p.144

The place was nearly filled — Spanish had made us late — but there was no sign of Edward or any of his family. Desolation hit me with crippling strength.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 7, p.145

I’ve never had a boyfriend or anything close. I didn’t go out much.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 8, p.153

Do you think that if I ran him over with my truck he would stop feeling guilty about the accident? That he might give up on making amends and call it even?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 8, p.154

Stupid, unreliable vampire.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 8, p.156

I knew exactly where my pepper spray was — still in my duffle bag under the bed, never unpacked.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 8, p.158

I realized then that I wasn’t being followed. I was being herded.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 8, p.160

I wasn’t going out without taking someone with me. I tried to swallow so I could build up a decent scream.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 8, p.161

It was amazing how instantaneously the choking fear vanished, amazing how suddenly the feeling of security washed over me — even before I was off the street — as soon as I heard his voice.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 8, p.162

I stared at his face in profound relief, relief that went beyond my sudden deliverance.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 8, p.162

I’m going to run over Tyler Crowley tomorrow before school?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 8, p.163

He’s telling everyone that he’s taking me to prom — either he’s insane or he’s still trying to make up for almost killing me last… well, you remember it, and he thinks prom is somehow the correct way to do this. So I figure if I endanger his life, then we’re even, and he can’t keep trying to make amends.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 8, p.163

I wanted nothing more than to be alone with my perpetual savior. There were so many questions that I couldn’t bombard him with till we were by ourselves.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 8, p.166

He stared into my eyes, and I saw how light his eyes were, lighter than I’d ever seen them, golden butterscotch.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 8, p.170

I feel very safe with you.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 8, p.170

You’re always crabbier when your eyes are black — I expect it then.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 8, p.171

He seemed to be wavering, torn by some internal dilemma. His eyes locked with mine, and I guessed he was making the decision right then whether or not to simply tell me the truth.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 8, p.173

Did you ever think that maybe my number was up the first time, with the van, and that you’ve been interfering with fate?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 8, p.174

I probably should have been used to that by now — but I wasn’t. I had a feeling Edward wasn’t the kind of person anyone got used to.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 8, p.178

I thought we were past all the evasiveness.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.179

I couldn’t think of an acceptable response to that, but I filed it carefully away for future study. I tried to refocus. I wasn’t ready to let him be finished, now that he was finally explaining things.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.180

I felt silly, asking for clarification on make-believe.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.180

Are you trying to kill us?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.181

I was raised to abide by traffic laws. Besides, if you turn us into a Volvo pretzel around a tree trunk, you can probably just walk away.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.182

I tried to flirt — it worked better than I thought it would.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.184

I decided it didn’t matter.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.184

It doesn’t matter to me what you are.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.184

And how long have you been seventeen?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.185

Don’t laugh — but how can you come out during the daytime?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.185

He turned to look at me with a wistful expression. The golden eyes held mine, and I lost my train of thought. I stared at him until he looked away.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.186

I was aware of the time slipping away so quickly, like the black road beneath us, and I was hideously afraid that I would never have another chance to be with him like this again — openly, the walls between us gone for once. His words hinted at an end, and I recoiled from the idea. I couldn’t waste one minute I had with him.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.187

I didn’t like it. Not seeing you. It makes me anxious, too.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.190

I told you, it doesn’t matter what you are. It’s too late.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.190

His voice burned with regret. I knew he wasn’t just apologizing for the words that had upset me.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.191

I fall down a lot when I run.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.191

I turned and he was leaning toward me, his pale, glorious face just inches from mine. My heart stopped beating.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.193

About three things I was absolutely positive. First, Edward was a vampire. Second, there was part of him — and I didn’t know how potent that part might be — that thirsted for my blood. And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.195

There was uncertainty in his voice. He was really giving me a choice — I was free to refuse, and part of him hoped for that. It was a vain hope.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 10, p.197

It was a colossal tribute to his face that it kept my eyes away from his body.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 10, p.197

I’m not quite that delicate.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 10, p.197

Do I react badly?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 10, p.198

I wanted to close that little distance, to reach out and touch him, but I was afraid he wouldn’t like me to.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 10, p.199

He paused to catch a stray lock of hair that was escaping the twist on my neck and wound it back into place. My heart spluttered hyperactively.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 10, p.201

One side of his mouth pulled up into my favorite uneven smile.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 10, p.201

He was such a cheater. Now I was even more worried about what I was going to say to Jessica.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 10, p.201

How very inconvenient his little talent could be — when it wasn’t saving my life.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 10, p.202

He drives like a maniac. It was terrifying.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 10, p.202

You should have seen the waitress flirting with him — it was over the top. But he didn’t pay any attention to her at all.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 10, p.203

I do have some trouble with incoherency when I’m around him.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 10, p.204

I can’t explain it right… but he’s even more unbelievable behind the face.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 10, p.204

The vampire who wanted to be good — who ran around saving people’s lives so he wouldn’t be a monster…
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 10, p.204

But outside the door to our Spanish class, leaning against the wall — looking more like a Greek god than anyone had a right to — Edward was waiting for me.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 10, p.206

I’m not surprised you heard something you didn’t like. You know what they say about eavesdroppers.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 10, p.208

I tried to remember how to exhale. I had to look away before it came back to me.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 10, p.208

His liquid topaz eyes were penetrating — trying futilely, I assumed, to lift the truth straight from my mind.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 10, p.209

I can’t be sure — I don’t know how to read minds — but sometimes it seems like you’re trying to say goodbye when you’re saying something else.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 10, p.210

I’m absolutely ordinary — well, except for bad things like all the near-death experiences and being so clumsy that I’m almost disabled.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 10, p.210

No one has tried to do away with me today.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 10, p.211

As it happens, I don’t mind being alone with you.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 10, p.214

Bears? You know, bears are not in season.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 10, p.214

Nothing more fun than an irritated grizzly bear.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 10, p.215

I was stunned by the unexpected electricity that flowed through me, amazed that it was possible to be more aware of him than I already was. A crazy impulse to reach over and touch him, to stroke his perfect face just once in the darkness, nearly overwhelmed me.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 11, p.219

His face startled me — his expression was torn, almost pained, and so fiercely beautiful that the ache to touch him flared as strong as before. My goodbye stuck in my throat. He raised his hand, hesitant, conflict raging in his eyes, and then swiftly brushed the length of my cheekbone with his fingertips. His skin was as icy as ever, but the trail his fingers left on my skin was alarmingly warm — like I’d been burned, but didn’t feel the pain of it yet.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 11, p.220

I somehow managed to hit myself in the head with my racket and clip Mike’s shoulder on the same swing.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 11, p.221

What if his family was there? I felt a wave of real terror. Did they know that I knew? Was I supposed to know that they knew that I knew, or not?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 11, p.221

I don’t speak Car and Driver.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 11, p.223

It must be a hard thing, to be a father; living in fear that your daughter would meet a boy she liked, but also having to worry if she didn’t. How ghastly it would be, I thought, shuddering, if Charlie had even the slightest inkling of exactly what I did like.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 11, p.227

He’d been flinging questions at me with such speed that I felt like I was taking one of those psychiatric tests where you answer with the first word that comes to mind.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 11, p.229

I’d given more information than necessary in my unwilling honesty, and I worried it would provoke the strange anger that flared whenever I slipped and revealed too clearly how obsessed I was.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 11, p.230

I’ve never minded being alone — I’m too much like you.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 12, p.241

He grinned his crooked smile at me, stopping my breath and my heart. I couldn’t imagine how an angel could be any more glorious. There was nothing about him that could be improved upon.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 12, p.241

I looked down, afraid of the persuasive power of his eyes. I refused to be convinced to fear him, no matter how real the danger might be. It doesn’t matter, I repeated in my head.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 12, p.243

He knows I’ve been meaning to do the laundry. Maybe he’ll think I fell in the washer.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 12, p.244

I realized slowly that his words should frighten me. I waited for that fear to come, but all I could seem to feel was an ache for his pain.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 12, p.246

Should I say ‘have fun,’ or is that the wrong sentiment?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 12, p.247

I promise to try to be safe. I’ll do the laundry tonight — that ought to be fraught with peril.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 12, p.247

Our relationship couldn’t continue to balance, as it did, on the point of a knife. We would fall off one edge or the other, depending entirely upon his decision, or his instincts. My decision was made, made before I’d ever consciously chosen, and I was committed to seeing it through. Because there was nothing more terrifying to me, more excruciating, than the thought of turning away from him. It was an impossibility.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 12, p.248

This truck is old enough to be your car’s grandfather — have some respect.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 12, p.254

I knew he thought it was fear that upset me, and I was grateful again that I was the one person whose mind he couldn’t hear.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 12, p.257

His cold touch on my skin never failed to make my heart thud erratically. Twice, when that happened, I caught a look on his face that made me sure he could somehow hear it.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 12, p.257

Edward seemed to take a deep breath, and then he stepped out into the bright glow of the midday sun.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 12, p.259

Edward in the sunlight was shocking. I couldn’t get used to it, though I’d been staring at him all afternoon. His skin, white despite the faint flush from yesterday’s hunting trip, literally sparkled, like thousands of tiny diamonds were embedded in the surface.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.260

Now and then, his lips would move, so fast it looked like they were trembling. But, when I asked, he told me he was singing to himself; it was too low for me to hear.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.260

I was wishing that I could believe that you were real. And I was wishing that I wasn’t afraid.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.262

I sat without moving, more frightened of him than I had ever been. I’d never seen him so completely freed of that carefully cultivated facade. He’d never been less human… or more beautiful.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.264

I looked into his eyes, abruptly grasping that this was every bit as new to him as it was to me. As many years of unfathomable experience as he had, this was hard for him, too.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.265

I was afraid… because, for, well, obvious reasons, I can’t stay with you. And I’m afraid that I’d like to stay with you, much more than I should.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.266

It was hard to keep up — his sudden mood changes left me always a step behind, dazed.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.266

So what you’re saying is, I’m your brand of heroin?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.267

What are you asking? My permission?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.269

Common sense told me I should be terrified. Instead, I was relieved to finally understand. And I was filled with compassion for his suffering, even now, as he confessed his craving to take my life.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.273

You already know how I feel, of course. I’m here… which, roughly translated, means I would rather die than stay away from you.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.274

What a stupid lamb.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.274

He raised his free hand and placed it gently on the side of my neck. I sat very still, the chill of his touch a natural warning — a warning telling me to be terrified. But there was no feeling of fear in me. There were, however, other feelings…
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.275

He came to rest with the side of his face pressed tenderly against my chest. Listening to my heart.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.276

I knew at any moment it could be too much, and my life could end — so quickly that I might not even notice. And I couldn’t make myself be afraid. I couldn’t think of anything, except that he was touching me.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.276

No one could be still like Edward. He closed his eyes and became as immobile as stone, a carving under my hand.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.277

You’re better at this than you give yourself credit for.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.278

Will you turn into a bat?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.279

I’m a bit heavier than your average backpack.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.279

If I’d ever feared death before in his presence, it was nothing compared to how I felt now.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.280

I think I need to lie down.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.280

He hesitated — not in the normal way, the human way. Not the way a man might hesitate before he kissed a woman, to gauge her reaction, to see how he would be received. Perhaps he would hesitate to prolong the moment, that ideal moment of anticipation, sometimes better than the kiss itself. Edward hesitated to test himself, to see if this was safe, to make sure he was still in control of his need. And then his cold, marble lips pressed very softly against mine.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.282

He was a different Edward than the one I had known. And I felt all the more besotted by him. It would cause me physical pain to be separated from him now.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.283

There was no way around it; I couldn’t resist him in anything.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.284

Take it easy — my truck is a senior citizen.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.284

Are you ever going to tell me how old you are?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.287

There’s nothing like an unsolved mystery to keep you up at night.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.287

I couldn’t picture it, this godlike creature sitting in my father’s shabby kitchen chair.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.292

You spied on me?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.292

I knew I talked in my sleep, of course; my mother teased me about it. I hadn’t thought it was something I needed to worry about here, though.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.293

Just give me a minute to restart my heart.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.297

Can I have a minute to be human?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.297

I tried not to think of Edward, sitting in my room, waiting, because then I had to start all over with the calming process.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.298

It was very difficult, while he was touching me, to frame a coherent question.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.299

It seems to be… much easier for you, now, to be close to me.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.299

Would you like a round of applause?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.300

I’d never seen him struggle so hard for words. It was so… human.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.301

Yeah, it’s an off day when I don’t get somebody telling me how edible I smell.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.306

Why do you do it? I still don’t understand how you can work so hard to resist what you… are. Please don’t misunderstand, of course I’m glad that you do. I just don’t see why you would bother in the first place.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.306

Let me get this straight — I’m the baby seal, right?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.308

Are you sure you won’t vanish in the morning? You are mythical, after all.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.309

He laughed, and then began to hum that same, unfamiliar lullaby; the voice of an archangel, soft in my ear.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.311

I’m not afraid of them. I’m afraid they won’t… like me. Won’t they be, well, surprised that you would bring someone… like me… home to meet them? Do they know that I know about them?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 15, p.316

Well, it’s no irritable grizzly…
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 15, p.316

My dating history gave me few reference points to work with. Not that any normal rules of dating applied here.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 15, p.317

I’ll always want you. Forever.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 15, p.318

I doubted there were any etiquette books detailing how to dress when your vampire sweetheart takes you home to meet his vampire family.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 15, p.318

You… made… me… faint.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 15, p.319

I think I forgot to breathe.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 15, p.320

I’m feeling extremely insignificant.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 15, p.326

A moment of wordless communication passed between us. He realized that I knew he was keeping something from me. I realized that he wasn’t going to give anything away. Not now.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 15, p.328

It was easier if I didn’t try to believe.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 15, p.331

Every time he touched me, in even the most casual way, my heart had an audible reaction.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 16, p.335

It was a strange combination to absorb — the everyday concerns of the town doctor stuck in the middle of a discussion of his early days in seventeenth-century London. It was also unsettling to know that he spoke aloud only for my benefit.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 16, p.336

He swam to France?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 16, p.337

You can’t spring something like that on me, and then expect me not to say anything.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 16, p.339

You don’t have to breathe?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 16, p.339

I’m not running anywhere.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 16, p.340

In the corner was a sophisticated-looking sound system, the kind I was afraid to touch because I’d be sure to break something.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 16, p.343

You’re still waiting for the running and the screaming, aren’t you?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 16, p.344

I hate to burst your bubble, but you’re really not as scary as you think you are. I don’t find you scary at all, actually.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 16, p.345

Vampires like baseball?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 16, p.347

The phone rang and I sprinted downstairs to get it. There was only one voice I wanted to hear; anything else would be a disappointment. But I knew that if he wanted to talk to me, he’d probably just materialize in my room.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 17, p.354

Well, I sort of have a date with Edward Cullen tonight, and he wanted to introduce me to his parents…
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 17, p.356

Don’t embarrass me with all the boyfriend talk, okay?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 17, p.357

I hope you’re getting the Spanish Inquisition out of your system now.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 17, p.358

I quickly shot him a dirty look. He winked behind Charlie’s back.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 17, p.358

Enough humor at my expense. Let’s go.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 17, p.359

I gave up trying to help him and focused on not hyperventilating.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 17, p.360

Run the whole way? As in, we’re still going to run part of the way?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 17, p.360

I knew there was a second part to my brilliant defense, but I couldn’t quite call it back.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 17, p.363

You’re indestructible.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 17, p.363

Oh, you’re the only one who’s allowed to get mad?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 17, p.365

Go team!
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 17, p.367

His run was more aggressive, a cheetah rather than a gazelle, and he quickly overtook them. The grace and power took my breath away.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 17, p.367

You don’t mind, then? That I’m… all wrong for him?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 17, p.368

Three things seemed to happen simultaneously while Carlisle was speaking. My hair ruffled with the light breeze, Edward stiffened, and the second male, James, suddenly whipped his head around, scrutinizing me, his nostrils flaring.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 18, p.378

Edward bared his teeth, crouching in defense, a feral snarl ripping from his throat. It was nothing like the playful sounds I’d heard from him this morning; it was the single most menacing thing I had ever heard, and chills ran from the crown of my head to the back of my heels.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 18, p.378

The sense of exhilaration that usually seemed to possess Edward as he ran was completely absent, replaced by a fury that consumed him and drove him still faster. Even with me on his back, the others trailed behind.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 18, p.380

Edward was growling something too fast for me to understand, but it sounded a lot like a string of profanities.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 18, p.381

Dammit, Edward! Where are you taking me?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 18, p.381

You’re not ruining everything over me!
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 18, p.382

Does anyone want to hear my plan?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 18, p.384

I demand that you take me home.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 18, p.384

I felt moisture filling up my eyes as I looked at Emmett. I barely knew him, and yet, somehow, not knowing when I would see him again after tonight was anguishing. I knew this was just a faint taste of the goodbyes I would have to survive in the next hour, and the thought made the tears begin to spill.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 19, p.391

Edward opened my door and took my hand, then drew me into the protecting enclosure of his arm. He walked me swiftly toward the house, eyes always roving through the night.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 19, p.391

I love you. I will always love you, no matter what happens now.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 19, p.391

Keep Charlie safe for me. He’s not going to like me very much after this, and I want to have the chance to apologize later.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 19, p.391

I could think of only one way to escape, and it involved hurting him so much that I hated myself for even considering it. But I had no time, and I had to keep him safe.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 19, p.393

I do like him — that’s the problem. I can’t do this anymore! I can’t put down any more roots here! I don’t want to end up trapped in this stupid, boring town like Mom! I’m not going to make the same dumb mistake she did. I hate it — I can’t stay here another minute!
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 19, p.393

It didn’t work out, okay? I really, really hate Forks!
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 19, p.394

But it won’t be all right when I’m not with you.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 19, p.396

How can you kill a vampire?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 19, p.398

Emmett had my door open before the truck was stopped; he pulled me out of the seat, tucked me like a football into his vast chest, and ran me through the door.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 19, p.399

His eyes went blank, curiously dead, as he turned away. And they were gone.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 19, p.403

If anything happens to them, it will be for nothing.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 19, p.404

You’re the first one to ask permission.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 19, p.404

What if something goes wrong, and they get separated? If something happens to any of them, Carlisle, Emmett… Edward… If that wild female hurts Esme… How could I live with myself when it’s my fault? None of you should be risking yourselves for me.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 20, p.410

My guilt slowly subsided as I looked into her dark eyes. But, even as the calm spread over me, I knew I couldn’t trust my feelings with Jasper there.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 20, p.411

I hoped that by myself in the dark, I could give in to the terrible fears that hovered on the edge of my consciousness, unable to break through under Jasper’s careful supervision.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 20, p.411

Tell me then… how do you become a vampire?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 20, p.413

Immortality must grant endless patience.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 20, p.421

And what if you get hurt, Alice? Do you think that’s okay with me? Do you think it’s only my human family he can hurt me with?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 21, p.425

I walked to my room and shut the door, slammed it really, so I could be free to go to pieces privately.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 21, p.425

There was no escape, no reprieve. I could see only one possible end looming darkly in my future. The only question was how many other people would be hurt before I reached it.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 21, p.425

Slowly, slowly, my thoughts started to break past that brick wall of pain. To plan. For I had no choices now but one: to go to the mirrored room and die.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 21, p.430

I had to accept that I wouldn’t see Edward again, not even one last glimpse of his face to carry with me to the mirror room. I was going to hurt him, and I couldn’t say goodbye.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 21, p.431

I folded the letter carefully, and sealed it in the envelope. Eventually he would find it. I only hoped he would understand, and listen to me just this once. And then I carefully sealed away my heart.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 21, p.432

It had taken much less time than I’d thought — all the terror, the despair, the shattering of my heart. The minutes were ticking by more slowly than usual.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 22, p.433

The minutes passed and Edward’s arrival grew closer. It was amazing how every cell in my body seemed to know he was coming, to long for his coming.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 22, p.437

I couldn’t cry yet, I told myself. I still had a long way to go.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 22, p.439

I imagined that I had stayed at the airport to meet Edward. I visualized how I would stand on my toes, the sooner to see his face. How quickly, how gracefully he would move through the crowds of people separating us. And then I would run to close those last few feet between us — reckless as always — and I would be in his marble arms, finally safe.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 22, p.440

So many questions I still had for him. I could talk to him forever, never sleeping, never leaving his side. I could see his face so clearly now… almost hear his voice. And, despite all the horror and hopelessness, I was fleetingly happy. So involved was I in my escapist daydreams, I lost all track of the seconds racing by.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 22, p.440

There was no time to look back at my house, and I didn’t want to see it as it was now — empty, a symbol of fear instead of sanctuary. The last person to walk through those familiar rooms was my enemy.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 22, p.442

Terror seized me so strongly that I was literally trapped by it. I couldn’t make my feet move forward.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 22, p.443

I couldn’t help myself— I tried to run. As useless as I knew it would be, as weak as my knees already were, panic took over and I bolted for the emergency door.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 22, p.449

I heard, as if from underwater, the final growl of the hunter. I could see, through the long tunnels my eyes had become, his dark shape coming toward me. With my last effort, my hand instinctively raised to protect my face. My eyes closed, and I drifted.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 22, p.451

This couldn’t be heaven, could it? There was too much pain for that.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 23, p.453

Edward’s face was drawn. I watched his eyes as the doubt was suddenly replaced with a blazing determination.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 23, p.455

Stay, Edward, stay with me…
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 23, p.456

I heard my favorite sound in the world: Edward’s quiet laugh, weak with relief.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 23, p.457

Death shouldn’t be this uncomfortable.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.459

I had no interest in being soothed. My mom was here and I was recovering from a vampire attack.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.459

Don’t I taste as good as I smell?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.460

I was not finished kissing you. Don’t make me come over there.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.463

Don’t forget to breathe.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.464

Edward still had his eyes closed, but he looked too tense to pass as asleep.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.466

I’m pretty crazy about him.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.468

You stole a car?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.469

He didn’t say anything; he watched my face warily as the pain that had nothing to do with broken bones, pain that was infinitely worse, threatened to crush me.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.470

Do you swear you won’t leave me?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.471

Are you tired of having to save me all the time? Do you want me to go away?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.472

If it weren’t for you, I would be rotting away in the Forks cemetery.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.472

Why didn’t you just let the venom spread? By now I would be just like you.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.473

I’ll be the first to admit that I have no experience with relationships. But it just seems logical… a man and woman have to be somewhat equal… as in, one of them can’t always be swooping in and saving the other one. They have to save each other equally.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.473

I can’t always be Lois Lane. I want to be Superman, too.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.474

You are my life. You’re the only thing it would hurt me to lose.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.474

Renée has always made the choices that work for her — she’d want me to do the same. And Charlie’s resilient, he’s used to being on his own. I can’t take care of them forever. I have my own life to live.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.475

If you’re waiting for me to be on my deathbed, I’ve got news for you! I was just there!
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.475

I may not die now… but I’m going to die sometime. Every minute of the day, I get closer. And I’m going to get old.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.476

You’re not the only vampire I know.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.476

Alice already saw it, didn’t she? That’s why the things she says upset you. She knows I’m going to be like you… someday.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.477

You’ll never catch me betting against Alice.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.477

I’m not afraid of the needles. I’m afraid to close my eyes.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.478

You’re talking about forever, you know.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.478

I’m betting on Alice.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.480

At what point exactly are you going to tell me what’s going on?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Epilogue, p.481

I’m not coming over anymore if Alice is going to treat me like Guinea Pig Barbie when I do.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Epilogue, p.482

Nothing good could come of our formal attire, of that I was sure.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Epilogue, p.482

His eyes were melting all my fury. It was impossible to fight with him when he cheated like that.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Epilogue, p.485

Emmett enjoyed having me around — he thought my bizarre human reactions were hilarious… or maybe it was just the fact that I fell down a lot that he found so funny.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Epilogue, p.485

At school, where Charlie couldn’t interfere, Edward and I were inseparable — except for those rare sunny days.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Epilogue, p.486

This looks like a horror movie waiting to happen.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Epilogue, p.487

Do you want me to bolt the doors so you can massacre the unsuspecting townsfolk?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Epilogue, p.487

Oh, I’m with the vampires, of course.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Epilogue, p.487

Edward. I honestly can’t dance!
Bella Swan, Twilight, Epilogue, p.488

In what strange parallel dimension would I ever have gone to prom of my own free will? If you weren’t a thousand times stronger than me, I would never have let you get away with this.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Epilogue, p.495

It’s not the end, it’s the beginning.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Epilogue, p.497

Do you remember when you told me that I didn’t see myself very clearly? You obviously have the same blindness.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Epilogue, p.497

A girl can dream.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Epilogue, p.498

Mostly I dream about being with you forever.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Epilogue, p.498

I love you more than everything else in the world combined. Isn’t that enough?
Bella Swan, Twilight, Epilogue, p.498

I simply love this story! Edward and Bella and their emotions seem to be so real that i can really feel them myself while reading the book. Hats off to Stephanie Meyer. I m now a big...........big fan of her! Thanks for such an amazing story.
