She is mine.' Edward's low voice was suddenly dark not as composed as before. 'I didn't say I would fight fair.

Sometimes there isn't any way to compromise." - Eclipse page 607

Without the existence of the opposite the concept has no meaning.

He wished he hadn't pulled me from the path of Tyler's van - there was no other conclusion I could come to.

A hundred yards away Mike Newton was lowering Bella's limp body to the sidewalk. She slumped unresponsively against the wet concrete her skin chalky as a corpse. I almost took the door off the car.

Carlisle: "I've seen vampire venom work miracles but there are conditions that even venom cannot overcome.

Like we were connected the echo of his pain twisted inside inside me. his pain my pain.

He was silent for a moment staring out the window into the rain; I imagined he was contemplating the fact that his family's presence was turning the locals into giant dogs.

Love doesn't always come in convenient packages.

As if you could outrun me...

No one could be still like Edward.

I'm not like a car you can fix up. I'm never gonna run right" Bella

Of course die for the monster spawn. It was so Bella.

It's pretty obvious isn't it? I'm joining your crappy little renegade pack. The vampires' guard dogs.

I don't want you to leave Which is exactly why I should. But don't worry. I'm essentially a selfish creature. I crave your company too much to do what I should.

Her existence alone was excuse enough to justify the creation of the entire world.

You are the noblest purest creature I've ever met. The universe will be a darker place without you " he whispered.

Say what you want I still think Dracula One and Dracula Two are creep-tacular.

His gift is slower than Jane's. It creeps. It will touch us in a few seconds.

For some reason my temper was hardwired to my tear ducts. I usually cried when I was angry a humiliating tendency.

You don't have anything like this. For crying out loud you only own one skirt!

I honestly have no idea how to live without you.

Dating a older woman- hot" Emmet Cullen

Do you ever think that your life might be easier if you weren't in love with me?" ? Edward Cullen

Sometimes loyalty gets in the way of what you want to do. Sometimes it's not your secret to tell.

So" um" what's the er date? You know the due date for the little monster.

Well" don't be offended but you smell like a dog.

Why does Ian think I have to kiss you?

He never leaves does he?

You nicked-named my daughter after the Lock Ness Monster!

I don't like to lie "? so there'd better be a good reason why I'm doing it.

Darkness is so predictable.

Sometimes ideas feel like they were already there and that you're just discovering them.

It took only seconds for me to make these discoveries but even in that short time my stomach nearly jumped through my mouth trying to reach the food.

Do you have a multiple personality disorder?

He's like a drug for you Bella.

I had enough trouble not falling down when the ground was dry; it might be safer for me to go back to bed now.

I don't want to be a vampire. A lot of other people do and I think it's that dual nature - we have you know terrifying/intriguing.

driving at the speed limit--hideous thought.

Too young too young she chanted to herself. Wrong of course. I was older than her grandfather but according to my driver's license she was right.

Dear Jacob I win. Sincerely Edward

I promise to love you forever - every single day of forever.

Those who lived in peaceful nations had looked the other way as members of their own species starved on their door step.

Go sit down and look pale.

Your hold on me is permanent and unbreakable. Never doubt that

Her name is Wanda not it. You will not touch her. Any mark you leave on her I will double on your worthless hide.

That was the first night I dreamed of Eward Cullen.

I was ninety-nine point nine percent sure that I was dreaming.

I watched his fingers clench and unclench and I wondered if he was dreaming that they were wrapped around my neck.

It took less than half a second for me to realize that as long as I was truly insane now I might as well enjoy the delusions while they were pleasant.

Happy and sad elated and miserable secure and afraid loved and denied patient and angry peaceful and wild complete and empty...all of it. I would feel everything. It would all be mine.

I didn't want to be the monster! I didn't want to kill this room full of harmless children! I didn't want to lose everything I'd gained in a lifetime of sacrifice and denial!

Like everything in life I just had to decide what to do with what I was given.

Edward: "After a few decades everyone you know will be dead. Problem solved.

Death is Peaceful Life is Harder

What were you two doing last night discussing the national debt?

Worst high five ever." - Diego

We should have been wiser; we should have died yesterday.

Life sucks and then you die...

The boy in the pearl gray suit could have been Jane's twin. His hair was darker and his lips were not as full but he was just as lovely.

Inspiration in desperation.

Trust Emmett to find the joke in the destruction of my life.

I wanted myself. I wouldn't let what was mine be destroyed.

I knew I was too late?and I was glad something bloodthirsty waited in the wings. For in failing at this I forfeited any desire to live.

You aren't exactly the best judge of what is or isn't dangerous.

He sparked on his body that reflect like mini mirrors of diamond

no two writers go about things in exactly the same way (intro)

Because there was nothing more terrifying to me more excruciating than the thought of turning away from him. it was an impossibility.

Bella it's not my fault if you are exceptionally unobservant.

Not many people get every single thing they want plus all the things they didn't think to ask for in the same day.

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.

His eyes flashed open. "Is it so unbearable to have me love you? Is that it?

So eager for eternal damnation.

How easy it must be when you had no secrets from the person you lived with." - Eclipse page 208

Did you seriously just stamp your foot? I thought girls only did that on TV.

Tonight the sky was utterly black. Perhaps there was no moon tonight?a lunar eclipse a new moon. A new moon. I shivered though I wasn't cold.

It's not the face but the expressions on it. It's not the voice but what you say. It's not how you look in that body but the thing you do with it. You are beautiful.

I was just thinking "? today is the first and last day of forever. It's kind of hard to wrap my head around it. Even with all this extra room for wrapping.

Everyone needs a little Edward in their life

I glanced wide eyed from Edward's grimace to Jacob's sneer.

I was stronger than Edward. I'd made him say ow.

The outside world holds no interest for me without you." -Edward

Edward was always focused watching and also listening to what others couldn't see.

I had the feeling Edward wasn't the kind of person anyone got used to.

Odd as this might sound I suppose I'm glad you're here Jacob. [Edward Cullen]

Edward helped making faces every so often at the raw ingredients-human food was mildly repulsive to him.

I'm really glad Edward didn't kill you. Everything's so much more fun with you around." ? Emmett Cullen

I know you think that I have some kind of perfect unyielding self-control but that's not actually the case. - Edward Cullen

I shuddered at the image in my head at the word feed. But Jasper wasn't worried about frightening me not overprotective like Edward always was.

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.

Edward ' she mumbled softly. She was dreaming of me. Could a dead frozen heart beat again? It felt like mine was about to. 'Stay ' she sighed. 'Don't go. Please... don't go

Everything in my world was about him. What a silly thing to expect.

You haven't changed at all. I expected a perceptible difference but here you are red-faced just like always.

Happiness expanded like an explosion inside me "? so extreme so violent that I wasn't sure I'd survive it.

It Will Be As If I Never Existed

You are...Well not exactly the love of my life because I expect to love you for much longer than that. The love of my existence." -Bella

He looks at you you're something to eat.

Are you still faint from the run? Or was it my kissing expertise?

Speaking of which would you like to explain to me how you're alive

Here's to responsibility " he toasted. "Twice a week." "And recklessness every day in between " I emphasized. He grinned and touched his can to mine.

After all what was more important in the end than love?

I was a vampire and she had the sweetest blood I'd smelled in eighty years.

It was the first time I'd ever felt truly jealous of anyone else in my entire life.


There was a different ending to New Moon originally. It was a much quieter book. It was very much all in Bellas head.

If we had happy endings we'd all be under gravestones now.

Would you like to hear my story Bella? It doesn't have a happy ending - but which of ours does? If we had happy endings we'd all be under gravestones now.

No measure of time with you will be long enough but we'll start with forever.

Whoa whoa! Hold up there kid. She lives in Forks remember? So she gets rained on.

Sometimes it was so easy to forget that I was kissing a vampire.

Que Quowle" -stay with me forever-

I would always love this fragile human girl for the rest of my limitless existence.

I have an immature Homer Simpson-like tendency to giggle when I say the words 'seminal fluids' in public.

It never made sense for you to love me.

What a marshmallow. You should hold out for someone with a stronger stomach. Someone who laughs at the gore that makes weaker men vomit.

Yes heaven forbid I not be protected from tanks.

Forbidden to remember terrified to forget; it was a hard line to walk.

Idiot! Lunatic! Moron! Jackass! Selfish irresponsible fool!

How could you fall in love with a three inch worm?

Bella?" a different voice called from the distance. No! Please let me be imagining that horribly familiar voice.

If this is how you're going to react I'll freak out more often.

I hear voices in my mind and you're worried that you're the freak " he laughed.

How sad. How frightening. To be filled with so much hate that you could not even rejoice in the healing of a child...How did anyone ever come to that point?

Jasper chuckled shaking his head. " You truly are one frightening little monster.

I can feel what you're feeling now ? and you are worth it.

I ached for the difference between Carlisle and me - that he could touch her so gently without fear knowing he would never harm her.

It's just been my experience that some kinds of working relationships are better motivated by fear than by monetary gain.

How did people do this - swallow all their fears and trust someone else so implicitly with every imperfection and fear they had...

Let me guess ' Ian said in a voice like ice. 'You fell on a rock.

And so the lion fell in love with the lamb.

It felt almost rude to ignore toe pretty white bed but we just weren't going to make it that far.

You're not like anyone I've ever known. You fascinate me.

Are you referring to the fact that you can't walk across a flat stable surface without finding something to trip over?

Sometimes fact mixed with fiction so thoroughly that though no lies were told it was hard to remember what was strictly true.

Your number was up the first time I met you.

The wasting of finite resources is everyones business

Today is the first and last day of forever.

He put his cold hands on either side of my face and fixed his golden eyes on mine. "Would you please tell me what you're thinking? Before I go mad?

The right thing isn't always real obvious. Sometimes the right thing for one person is the wrong thing for someone else. So...good luck figuring that out.

It's easier to come up with new stories than it is to finish the ones you already have. I think every author would feel that way.

Be happy that after living so many lives I finally found something to die for

Now and then I see something in her eyes and I wonder if I've ever grasped how much pain she's really in.

There's no good story without romance.

We made it ' he shouted. 'Not bad for a prison break eh?' 'Good thinking Jake.

I'm glad I came. I didn't think I would be. But it's good to see you" one more time. Not as sad as I'd thought it would be.

Sometimes you have to learn to love what's good for you.

Run Bella run. I love you too much for your good or mine.

Good luck little Wanderer good luck. How I wish you didn't need it.

I gave you life. You're wasting it.

Someone has to spread the good news that we survived.

Surely it was a good way to die in the place of someone else someone I loved.

In Gym the kids on my team learned not to pass me the ball and to step quickly in front of me if the other team tried to take advantage of my weakness. I happily stayed out of their way.

I was all braced for the wrath that was going to put grizzlies to shame and this is what I get? I should infuriate you more often.

It's always better to be kind. I'm glad I know why." -Wanda

He's got to let go of you sometime.

Jacob was a gift from the gods.

She just keeps saying "He's gone.

I like it when pessimism goes unrewarded.

Just because you want something to be true doesn't make it that way." -The Host

You should have seen his face when I started taking my clothes off. Priceless.

Ian paused and leaned closer to me so that I couldn't seem to see anything around his face just snow and sapphire and ink.

Maybe you'll get lucky." I said bleakly lurching on my feet. "Maybe I'll get hit by a truck on my way back.

When he left you spent all your energy holding on to him. You could be happy if you let go.

Ready to be humiliated Wanda?" Wes taunted. "You may have taken the planet but you're losing this game.
