The Twilight Saga

So, as discussed, I am not allowed to wish you a happy birthday, is that correct?
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 1, p.9

Be good, please.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 1, p.16

Your wish, my command.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 1, p.16

You know, I’ve never had much patience with Romeo.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 1, p.17

Mistake after mistake. Could he have destroyed his own happiness any more thoroughly?
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 1, p.17

Last spring, when you were… nearly killed… Of course I was trying to focus on finding you alive, but part of my mind was making contingency plans. Like I said, it’s not as easy for me as it is for a human.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 1, p.18

Well, I wasn’t going to live without you. But I wasn’t sure how to do it—I knew Emmett and Jasper would never help… so I was thinking maybe I would go to Italy and do something to provoke the Volturi.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 1, p.19

Anyway, you don’t irritate the Volturi. Not unless you want to die—or whatever it is we do.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 1, p.20

I’ll never put you in danger again, so it’s a moot point.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 1, p.20

Bella, the last real birthday any of us had was Emmett in 1935. Cut us a little slack, and don’t be too difficult tonight. They’re all very excited.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 1, p.23

Bella, you gave yourself a paper cut — that hardly deserves the death penalty.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 2, p.44

Don’t try to take any of this on yourself, Bella. It will only make me more disgusted with myself.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 2, p.45

Don’t be melodramatic, please.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 2, p.45

You can’t have it both ways—either you want people to ignore your birthday or you don’t. One or the other.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 2, p.45

You’re greedy tonight.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 2, p.51

You’re overestimating my self-control.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 2, p.52

Bella, I don’t want you to come with me.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 3, p.69

Of course, I’ll always love you… in a way. But what happened the other night made me realize that it’s time for a change. Because I’m… tired of pretending to be something I’m not, Bella. I am not human
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 3, p.70

You’re not good for me, Bella.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 3, p.70

I promise that this will be the last time you’ll see me. I won’t come back. I won’t put you through anything like this again. You can go on with your life without any more interference from me. It will be as if I’d never existed.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 3, p.71

Don’t worry. You’re human—your memory is no more than a sieve. Time heals all wounds for your kind.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 3, p.71

Well, I won’t forget. But my kind… we’re very easily distracted.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 3, p.72

You smell just exactly the same as always. So maybe this is hell. I don’t care. I’ll take it.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 20, p.452

They have a name for someone who smells the way Bella does to me. They call her my singer—because her blood sings for me.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 22, p.490

You should probably know that I’m breaking the rules right now. Well, not technically, since he said I was never to walk through his door again, and I came in the window… But, still, the intent was clear.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 23, p.503

I wasn’t hunting for food… I was actually trying my hand at… tracking. I’m not very good at it.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 23, p.505

The odds are always stacked against us. Mistake after mistake. I’ll never criticize Romeo again.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 23, p.508

I thought I’d explained it clearly before. Bella, I can’t live in a world where you don’t exist.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 23, p.509

I’m a good liar, Bella. I have to be.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 23, p.509

You weren’t going to let go. I could see that. I didn’t want to do it—it felt like it would kill me to do it—but I knew that if I couldn’t convince you that I didn’t love you anymore, it would just take you that much longer to get on with your life. I hoped that, if you thought I’d moved on, so would you.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 23, p.509

After all the thousand times I’ve told you I love you, how could you let one word break your faith in me?
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 23, p.510

I could see it in your eyes, that you honestly believed that I didn’t want you anymore. The most absurd, ridiculous concept—as if there were any way that I could exist without needing you!
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 23, p.510

You’re not asleep, and you’re not dead. I’m here, and I love you. I have always loved you, and I will always love you. I was thinking of you, seeing your face in my mind, every second that I was away. When I told you that I didn’t want you, it was the very blackest kind of blasphemy.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 23, p.510

Only you could be more important than what I wanted… what I needed. What I want and need is to be with you, and I know I’ll never be strong enough to leave again. I have too many excuses to stay—thank heaven for that! It seems you can’t be safe, no matter how many miles I put between us.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 23, p.513

Before you, Bella, my life was like a moonless night. Very dark, but there were stars—points of light and reason… And then you shot across my sky like a meteor. Suddenly everything was on fire; there was brilliancy, there was beauty. When you were gone, when the meteor had fallen over the horizon, everything went black. Nothing had changed, but my eyes were blinded by the light. I couldn’t see the stars anymore. And there was no more reason for anything.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 23, p.514

My heart hasn’t beat in almost ninety years, but this was different. It was like my heart was gone—like I was hollow. Like I’d left everything that was inside me here with you.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 23, p.515

I cannot be without you, but I will not destroy your soul.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 23, p.518

You will always be the most beautiful thing in my world. Of course… If you outgrew me—if you wanted something more—I would understand that, Bella. I promise I wouldn’t stand in your way if you wanted to leave me.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 23, p.519

I’ll earn your trust back somehow. It’s my final act.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 24, p.523

Your hold is permanent and unbreakable. Never doubt that.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 24, p.524

If there was only some way to make you see that I can’t leave you. Time, I suppose, will be the way to convince you.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 24, p.524

You, at least, made an effort. You got up in the morning, tried to be normal for Charlie, followed the pattern of your life. When I wasn’t actively tracking, I was… totally useless. I couldn’t be around my family—I couldn’t be around anyone. I’m embarrassed to admit that I more or less curled up into a ball and let the misery have me. It was much more pathetic than hearing voices. And, of course, you know I do that, too.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 24, p.528

You’re wounding my ego, Bella. I just proposed to you, and you think it’s a joke.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 24, p.540

Well, I’m nearly a hundred and ten. It’s time I settled down.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 24, p.540

Because she’d rather you became one of the eternal damned than get married.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 24, p.541

So eager for eternal damnation.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 24, p.546

Charlie… is probably not going to kill you, but he’s thinking about it.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Epilogue, p.553

Thank you. I will never be able to tell you how grateful I am. I will owe you for the rest of my… existence.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Epilogue, p.557

I’m a quick learner, Jacob Black, and I don’t make the same mistake twice. I’m here until she orders me away.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Epilogue, p.558
