When I was reviewing this topic, I came across this photo of a high school girl who was Bella's age when she was changed. Apparently it has some obscure relationship to the saga.
Dear Isabella, You make an excellent point. Carlisle certainly is a very compassionate and "beautiful man. Thank you for sharing that excellent point with us., Doc
Dear Scarlett, What a wonderful response, I think that you must be right. Carlisle, Esme, Edward, Alice, and Emmet are all loving people.. And a key to being a loving person is being able to put other people before yourself. But as your observation points out. Rosalie was raised to have others put her first; Rosalie Quote "Even when I was only 12 years old, when I entered the room EVERY man's eyes were only on me." But Edward wasn't that way he judged women by their inner beauty first. Edward to Alice Quote: She (Bella) has always been dazzlingly beautiful." No wonder Rosalie was so jealous and hateful when Edward was overcome by Bella's "inner" beauty." When her entire ego was built around men's attraction to her outer beauty. Thank you for you EXCELLENT observations. Doc http://www.thetwilightsaga.com/group/theofficialtwilightbookdiscuss...
