The Twilight Saga

Forks must be a difficult place for you to live.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 2, p.48

Bella? Are you all right?
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 3, p.57

Trust me.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 3, p.57

No blood, no foul.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 3, p.61

Someone has to spread the good news that we survived.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 3, p.62

I saved your life – I don’t owe you anything.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 3, p.64

You think I lifted a van off you?
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 3, p.65

I hope you enjoy disappointment.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 3, p.65

It’s better if we’re not friends. Trust me.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 4, p.74

You think I regret saving your life?
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 4, p.75

Bella, it’s not my fault if you are exceptionally unobservant.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 4, p.81

Bella, you are utterly absurd.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 4, p.82

The wasting of finite resources is everyone’s business.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 4, p.83

I said it would be better if we weren’t friends, not that I didn’t want to be.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 4, p.84

It would be more… prudent for you not to be my friend. But I’m tired of trying to stay away from you, Bella.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 4, p.84

You really should stay away from me.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 4, p.84

I decided as long as I was going to hell, I might as well do it thoroughly.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 5, p.87

I think your friends are angry with me for stealing you.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 5, p.87

I’m just going to do what I want now, and let the chips fall where they may.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 5, p.88

I always say too much when I’m talking to you — that’s one of the problems.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 5, p.88

You’ve got a bit of a temper, don’t you?
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 5, p.90

Your boyfriend seems to think I’m being unpleasant to you — he’s debating whether or not to come break up our fight.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 5, p.90

Kryptonite doesn’t bother me, either.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 5, p.92

What if I’m not a superhero? What if I’m the bad guy?
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 5, p.92

It’s healthy to ditch class now and then.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 5, p.93

Wow, you’re green, Bella.
Mike Newton, Twilight, Chapter 5, p.96

So you faint at the sight of blood?
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 5, p.97

You scared me for a minute there. I thought Newton was dragging your dead body off to bury it in the woods.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 5, p.99

Honestly — I’ve seen corpses with better color. I was concerned that I might have to avenge your murder.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 5, p.99

People can’t smell blood.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 5, p.100

Go sit down and look pale.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 5, p.101

Can you walk, or do you want me to carry you again?
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 5, p.102

Let’s you and I not push poor Mike any further this week. We don’t want him to snap.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 5, p.103

You don’t seem seventeen.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 5, p.105

Do you think that I could be scary?
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 5, p.107

Are you frightened of me now?
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 5, p.107

Don’t be offended, but you seem to be one of those people who just attract accidents like a magnet. So… try not to fall into the ocean or get run over or anything, all right?
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 5, p.109

Distract me, please.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 8, p.163

Sometimes I have a problem with my temper, Bella.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 8, p.164

Go stop Jessica and Angela before I have to track them down, too. I don’t think I could restrain myself if I ran into your other friends again.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 8, p.165

Do I dazzle you?
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 8, p.168

I hope you were more creative this time… or are you still stealing from comic books?
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 8, p.171

Only you could get into trouble in a town this small. You would have devastated their crime rate statistics for a decade, you know.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 8, p.173

I was wrong — you’re much more observant than I gave you credit for.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 8, p.173

You’re not a magnet for accidents — that’s not a broad enough classification. You are a magnet for trouble. If there is anything dangerous within a ten-mile radius, it will invariably find you.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 8, p.174

I’ve never tried to keep a specific person alive before, and it’s much more troublesome than I would have believed. But that’s probably just because it’s you. Ordinary people seem to make it through the day without so many catastrophes.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 8, p.174

Your number was up the first time I met you.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 8, p.175

It’s harder than it should be — keeping track of you. Usually I can find someone very easily, once I’ve heard their mind before.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 8, p.175

It was very… hard — you can’t imagine how hard — for me to simply take you away, and leave them… alive.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 8, p.176

I followed your scent.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.180

The more familiar someone’s… ‘voice’ is, the farther away I can hear them.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.180

Most of the time I tune it all out — it can be very distracting. And then it’s easier to seem normal when I’m not accidentally answering someone’s thoughts rather than their words.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.180

The only guess I have is that maybe your mind doesn’t work the same way the rest of theirs do. Like your thoughts are on the AM frequency and I’m only getting FM.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.181

I hear voices in my mind and you’re worried that you’re the freak.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.181

Aren’t we past all the evasions now?
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.181

I’ve never been in an accident, Bella — I’ve never even gotten a ticket. Built-in radar detector.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.182

Enough commentary on my driving.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.182

And you accused me of dazzling people — poor Jacob Black.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.184

You don’t care if I’m a monster? If I’m not human?
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.184

I’d rather know what you’re thinking — even if what you’re thinking is insane.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.185

I can’t sleep.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.186

Don’t you want to know if I drink blood?
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.186

They’re right to keep their distance from us. We are still dangerous.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.187

We’re usually very good at what we do. Sometimes we make mistakes. Me, for example, allowing myself to be alone with you.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.187

I don’t want to be a monster.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.187

I can’t be sure, of course, but I’d compare it to living on tofu and soy milk; we call ourselves vegetarians, our little inside joke.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.188

I didn’t want to leave, but it was necessary. It’s a bit easier to be around you when I’m not thirsty.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.188

It makes me… anxious… to be away from you.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.188

I was distracted all weekend, worrying about you.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.188

Well, you asked if the sun hurt me, and it doesn’t. But I can’t go out in the sunlight — at least, not where anyone can see.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.189

Don’t you see, Bella? It’s one thing for me to make myself miserable, but a wholly other thing for you to be so involved.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.190

It’s wrong. It’s not safe. I’m dangerous, Bella — please, grasp that.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.190

You were right — I’m definitely fighting fate trying to keep you alive.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.191

I’m not always the most dangerous thing out there. Let’s leave it at that.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.192

You take everything so coolly — it’s unnatural. It makes me wonder what you’re really thinking.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 10, p.198

We try to blend in.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 10, p.199

Hadn’t you noticed? I’m breaking all the rules now.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 10, p.199

We all like to drive fast.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 10, p.199

She wants to know if we’re secretly dating. And she wants to know how you feel about me.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 10, p.200

And as for her other question… well, I’ll be listening to hear the answer to that one myself.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 10, p.201

You’re always curious.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 10, p.207

Jessica’s analyzing everything I do — she’ll break it down for you later.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 10, p.207

I warned you I would be listening.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 10, p.208

I do want to know what you’re thinking — everything. I just wish… that you wouldn’t be thinking some things.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 10, p.208

Do you truly believe that you care more for me than I do for you?
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 10, p.208

You don’t see yourself very clearly, you know. I’ll admit you’re dead-on about the bad things, but you didn’t hear what every human male in this school was thinking on your first day.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 10, p.210

Trust me just this once — you are the opposite of ordinary.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 10, p.210

Of course, keeping you safe is beginning to feel like a full-time occupation that requires my constant presence.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 10, p.211

Are you referring to the fact that you can’t walk across a flat, stable surface without finding something to trip over?
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 10, p.212

Of all the things about me that could frighten you, you worry about my driving.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 10, p.213

Grizzly is Emmett’s favorite.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 10, p.215

If you’ve ever seen a bear attack on television, you should be able to visualize Emmett hunting.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 10, p.216

You need a healthy dose of fear. Nothing could be more beneficial for you
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 10, p.216

Newton’s getting on my nerves.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 11, p.222

I wasn’t intending to bring a car.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 11, p.224

Did I frighten you?
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 11, p.224

When we hunt, we give ourselves over to our senses… govern less with our minds. Especially our sense of smell. If you were anywhere near me when I lost control that way…
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 11, p.225

It’s twilight.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 11, p.232

It’s the safest time of day for us. The easiest time. But also the saddest, in a way… the end of another day, the return of the night. Darkness is so predictable, don’t you think?
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 11, p.233

So you never met anyone you wanted?
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 12, p.242

If I’m going to be alone with you tomorrow, I’m going to take whatever precautions I can.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 12, p.243

Alice is the most… supportive.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 12, p.244

They don’t understand why I can’t leave you alone.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 12, p.244

I told you — you don’t see yourself clearly at all. You’re not like anyone I’ve ever known. You fascinate me.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 12, p.245

People are predictable. But you… you never do what I expect. You always take me by surprise.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 12, p.245

Be safe.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 12, p.249

Were you planning to make it out of Forks before nightfall?
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 12, p.253

Are you so depressed by Forks that it’s made you suicidal?
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 12, p.255

So you’re worried about the trouble it might cause me — if you don’t come home?
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 12, p.255

I won’t let you get lost.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 12, p.256

I can be patient — if I make a great effort.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 12, p.257

It’s too easy to be myself with you.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.262

I don’t want you to be afraid.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.262

Would you understand what I meant if I said I was only human?
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.263

I’m the world’s best predator, aren’t I? Everything about me invites you in — my voice, my face, even my smell. As if I need any of that!
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.263

I promise… I swear not to hurt you.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.264

Please forgive me. I can control myself. You caught me off guard. But I’m on my best behavior now.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.265

So where were we, before I behaved so rudely?
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.265

How easily frustrated I am.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.265

That is something to be afraid of, indeed. Wanting to be with me. That’s really not in your best interest.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.266

I’m essentially a selfish creature. I crave your company too much to do what I should.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.266

It’s not only your company I crave! Never forget that. Never forget I am more dangerous to you than I am to anyone else.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.266

Yes, you are exactly my brand of heroin.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.268

When you walked past me, I could have ruined everything Carlisle has built for us, right then and there. If I hadn’t been denying my thirst for the last, well, too many years, I wouldn’t have been able to stop myself.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.269

To me, it was like you were some kind of demon, summoned straight from my own personal hell to ruin me.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.269

In that one hour, I thought of a hundred different ways to lure you from the room with me, to get you alone. And I fought them each back, thinking of my family, what I could do to them. I had to run out, to get away before I could speak the words that would make you follow…
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.270

I so very nearly took you then. There was only one other frail human there — so easily dealt with.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.270

Who were you, an insignificant little girl, to chase me from the place I wanted to be?
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.271

It was unquestionably a complication that I couldn’t simply read your thoughts to know what your reaction was to me. I wasn’t used to having to go to such circuitous measures, listening to your words in Jessica’s mind… her mind isn’t very original, and it was annoying to have to stoop to that. And then I couldn’t know if you really meant what you said. It was all extremely irritating.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.271

At the time, all I could think was, ‘Not her.’
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.272

Bella, I couldn’t live with myself if I ever hurt you. You don’t know how it’s tortured me. The thought of you, still, white, cold… to never see you blush scarlet again, to never see that flash of intuition in your eyes when you see through my pretenses… it would be unendurable. You are the most important thing to me now. The most important thing to me ever.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.274

And so the lion fell in love with the lamb…
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.274

What a sick, masochistic lion.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.274

It was just how close you were. Most humans instinctively shy away from us, are repelled by our alienness… I wasn’t expecting you to come so close. And the smell of your throat.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.275

The blush on your cheeks is lovely.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.275

Be very still.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.276

I wish you could feel the… complexity… the confusion… I feel. That you could understand.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.277

I’ve told you, on the one hand, the hunger — the thirst — that, deplorable creature that I am, I feel for you. And I think you can understand that, to an extent. Though as you are not addicted to any illegal substances, you probably can’t empathize completely.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.278

I’m not used to feeling so human. Is it always like this?
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.278

I don’t know how to be close to you. I don’t know if I can.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.278

I have human instincts — they may be buried deep, but they’re there.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.278

I’ll show you how I travel in the forest.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.279

Come on, little coward, climb on my back.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.279

You’re as white as a ghost — no, you’re as white as me!
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.281

Running is second nature to me, it’s not something I have to think about.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.281

I’m stronger than I thought. It’s nice to know.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.283

Are you still faint from the run? Or was it my kissing expertise?
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.283

Bella, I’ve already expended a great deal of personal effort at this point to keep you alive. I’m not about to let you behind the wheel of a vehicle when you can’t even walk straight. Besides, friends don’t let friends drive drunk.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.284

You’re intoxicated by my very presence.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.284

I have better reflexes.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.285

I don’t remember it well — it was a very long time ago, and human memories fade. I do remember how it felt, when Carlisle saved me. It’s not an easy thing, not something you could forget.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.287

It was difficult. Not many of us have the restraint necessary to accomplish it. But Carlisle has always been the most humane, the most compassionate of us… I don’t think you could find his equal throughout all of history.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.288

She saw something in his face that made her strong enough.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.289

She sees things — things that might happen, things that are coming. But it’s very subjective. The future isn’t set in stone. Things change.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.290

Do you think I could walk down the street in the sunlight without causing traffic accidents? There’s a reason why we chose the Olympic Peninsula, one of the most sunless places in the world. It’s nice to be able to go out side in the day. You wouldn’t believe how tired you can get of nighttime in eighty-odd years.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.291

I was curious about you.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.292

You’re interesting when you sleep. You talk.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.293

You miss your mother. You worry about her. And when it rains, the sound makes you restless. You used to talk about home a lot, but it’s less often now. Once you said, ‘It’s too green.’
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.294

If I could dream at all, it would be about you. And I’m not ashamed of it.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.294

Should your father know I’m here?
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.294

Mind over matter.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.300

In the last hundred years or so, I never imagined anything like this. I didn’t believe I would ever find someone I wanted to be with… in another way than my brothers and sisters. And then to find, even though it’s all new to me, that I’m good at it… at being with you…
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.300

It’s not easy. But this afternoon, I was still… undecided. I am sorry about that, it was unforgivable for me to behave so.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.301

I wasn’t sure if I was strong enough… And while there was still that possibility that I might be… overcome, I was… susceptible. Until I made up my mind that I was strong enough, that there was no possibility at all that I would… that I ever could…
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.301

I’ve had the scent of you in my head all day, and I’ve grown amazingly desensitized. If I’m away from you for any length of time, I’ll have to start over again. Not quite from scratch, though, I think.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.302

Bring on the shackles — I’m your prisoner.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.302

Isn’t it supposed to be like this? The glory of first love, and all that. It’s incredible, isn’t it, the difference between reading about something, seeing it in the pictures, and experiencing it?
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.302

I was surprised by the flare of resentment, almost fury, that I felt — I didn’t recognize what it was at first.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.303

I wrestled all night, while watching you sleep, with the chasm between what I knew was right, moral, ethical, and what I wanted. I knew that if I continued to ignore you as I should, or if I left for a few years, till you were gone, that someday you would say yes to Mike, or someone like him. It made me angry.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.303

The feeling that coursed through me then was unnerving, staggering. And I knew I couldn’t ignore you any longer.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.303

I’m new at this; you’re resurrecting the human in me, and everything feels stronger because it’s fresh.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.304

For almost ninety years I’ve walked among my kind, and yours… all the time thinking I was complete in myself, not realizing what I was seeking. And not finding anything, because you weren’t alive yet.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.304

You only have to risk your life every second you spend with me, that’s surely not much. You only have to turn your back on nature, on humanity… what’s that worth?
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.305

You are a terrible actress — I’d say that career path is out for you.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.305

Just because I’m resisting the wine doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate the bouquet.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.306

But you see, just because we’ve been… dealt a certain hand… it doesn’t mean that we can’t choose to rise above — to conquer the boundaries of a destiny that none of us wanted. To try to retain whatever essential humanity we can.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.307

I won’t leave you.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.309

I keep thinking it will get less frustrating, not hearing your thoughts. But it just gets worse and worse.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.309

It’s just that you are so soft, so fragile. I have to mind my actions every moment that we’re together so that I don’t hurt you. I could kill you quite easily, Bella, simply by accident.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.310

You don’t realize how incredibly breakable you are. I can never, never afford to lose any kind of control when I’m with you.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.310

I may not be a human, but I am a man.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.311

Your hair looks like a haystack… but I like it.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 15, p.312

You’re not usually this confused in the morning.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 15, p.313

You are my life now.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 15, p.314

What would you say to meeting my family?
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 15, p.316

Are you going to tell Charlie I’m your boyfriend or not?
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 15, p.317

You are utterly indecent — no one should look so tempting, it’s not fair.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 15, p.319

You are so absurd.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 15, p.319

Shall I explain how you are tempting me?
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 15, p.319

What am I going to do with you? Yesterday I kiss you, and you attack me! Today you pass out on me!
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 15, p.319

And you’re worried, not because you’re headed to meet a houseful of vampires, but because you think those vampires won’t approve of you, correct?
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 15, p.320

You inspired this one.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 15, p.326

They like you, you know.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 15, p.326

Actually, Esme wouldn’t care if you had a third eye and webbed feet. All this time she’s been worried about me, afraid that there was something missing from my essential makeup, that I was too young when Carlisle changed me… She’s ecstatic. Every time I touch you, she just about chokes with satisfaction.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 15, p.327

Alice has her own way of looking at things.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 15, p.327

Finally, a rational response! I was beginning to think you had no sense of self-preservation at all.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 15, p.328

No coffins, no piled skulls in the corners; I don’t even think we have cobwebs… what a disappointment this must be for you.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 15, p.329

It’s the one place we never have to hide.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 15, p.329

People swim the Channel all the time, Bella.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 16, p.337

I know that at some point, something I tell you or something you see is going to be too much. And then you’ll run away from me, screaming as you go. I won’t stop you. I want this to happen, because I want you to be safe. And yet, I want to be with you. The two desires are impossible to reconcile…
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 16, p.340

I can’t adequately describe the struggle; it took Carlisle two centuries of torturous effort to perfect his self-control. Now he is all but immune to the scent of human blood, and he is able to do the work he loves without agony. He finds a great deal of peace there, at the hospital…
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 16, p.340

Because I knew the thoughts of my prey, I could pass over the innocent and pursue only the evil. If I followed a murderer down a dark alley where he stalked a young girl — if I saved her, then surely I wasn’t so terrible.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 16, p.343

I was prepared to feel… relieved. Having you know about everything, not needing to keep secrets from you. But I didn’t expect to feel more than that. I like it. It makes me… happy.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 16, p.344

You really shouldn’t have said that.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 16, p.345

We have to wait for thunder to play ball — you’ll see why.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 16, p.347

I could walk home faster than this truck moves.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 17, p.348

You smell so good in the rain.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 17, p.361

It seems I’m going to have to tamper with your memory.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 17, p.361

Bella, you don’t really think I would hit a tree, do you?
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 17, p.362

Damn it, Bella! You’ll be the death of me, I swear you will.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 17, p.363

Now let’s get out of here before I do something really stupid.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 17, p.363

Don’t forget to close your eyes.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 17, p.364

I’m never angry with you — how could I be? Brave, trusting… warm as you are.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 17, p.365

I infuriate myself. The way I can’t seem to keep from putting you in danger. My very existence puts you at risk. Sometimes I truly hate myself.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 17, p.365

I love you. It’s a poor excuse for what I’m doing, but it’s still true.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 17, p.366

Bella was being unintentionally funny.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 17, p.367

Yes, stay very still, keep quiet, and don’t move from my side, please.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 17, p.373

I’m sorry, Bella. It was stupid, irresponsible, to expose you like this. I’m so sorry.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 17, p.374

We have to get you away from here — far away — now.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 18, p.381

I saw his mind. Tracking is his passion, his obsession — and he wants her, Alice — her, specifically. He begins the hunt tonight
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 18, p.382

You didn’t see — you don’t understand. Once he commits to a hunt, he’s unshakable. We’d have to kill him.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 18, p.383

Bella, please just do this my way, just this once.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 18, p.386

Shut up, Emmett.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 18, p.388

If you let anything happen to yourself— anything at all — I’m holding you personally responsible. Do you understand that?
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 18, p.388

Don’t worry. He’ll forgive you.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 19, p.396

If you didn’t smell so appallingly luscious, he might not have bothered. But when I defended you… well, that made it a lot worse. He’s not used to being thwarted, no matter how insignificant the object. He thinks of himself as a hunter and nothing else. His existence is consumed with tracking, and a challenge is all he asks of life. Suddenly we’ve presented him with a beautiful challenge — a large clan of strong fighters all bent on protecting the one vulnerable element. You wouldn’t believe how euphoric he is now. It’s his favorite game, and we’ve just made it his most exciting game ever.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 19, p.397

I don’t think I have any choice but to kill him now. Carlisle won’t like it.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 19, p.398

Bella, don’t you dare waste time worrying about me. Your only concern is keeping yourself safe and — please, please — trying not to be reckless.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 19, p.398

As soon as Bella is clear, we hunt him.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 19, p.401

I told you not to worry about anything but yourself.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 20, p.417

It’s like you’ve taken half my self away with you.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 20, p.418

I will make you safe first.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 20, p.418

Could you believe that, despite everything I’ve put you through, I love you, too?
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 20, p.418

You can sleep, sweetheart, I’ll carry you.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 23, p.457

I was almost too late. I could have been too late.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.459

You fell down two flights of stairs and through a window. You have to admit, it could happen.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.459

They gave you a few transfusions. I didn’t like it — it made you smell all wrong for a while.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.460

It was impossible… to stop. Impossible. But I did. I must love you.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.460

You should have waited for me, you should have told me.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.460

Oh, a sadistic vampire, intent on torturing her to death, sure, no problem, she runs off to meet him. An IV, on the other hand…
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.462

Alice had a little bit too much fun fabricating evidence.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.463

I would stay in Forks, Bella. Or somewhere like it. Someplace where I couldn’t hurt you anymore.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.470

Now relax before I call the nurse back to sedate you.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.471

I’m not going anywhere. I’ll be right here as long as you need me.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.471

I don’t seem to be strong enough to stay away from you, so I suppose that you’ll get your way… whether it kills you or not.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.473

I’ve had almost ninety years to think about this, and I’m still not sure.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.474

It’s possible to take bravery to the point where it becomes insanity.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.475

That’s how it’s supposed to happen. How it should happen. How it would have happened if I didn’t exist — and I shouldn’t exist.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.476

I’m hardly a lottery prize.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.476

Bella, we’re not having this discussion anymore. I refuse to damn you to an eternity of night and that’s the end of it.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.476

You need rest. All this arguing isn’t good for you.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.477

I told you I’m not going anywhere. Don’t be afraid. As long as it makes you happy, I’ll be here.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.478

That’s the beautiful thing about being human. Things change.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.478

Don’t worry about that now, Bella. You can argue with me when you wake up.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 24, p.479

I’m sorry if there’s been some kind of miscommunication, but Bella is unavailable tonight. To be perfectly honest, she’ll be unavailable every night, as far as anyone besides myself is concerned. No offense. And I’m sorry about your evening.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Epilogue, p.483

Don’t be difficult, Bella.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Epilogue, p.484

When someone wants to kill you, you’re brave as a lion — and then when someone mentions dancing…
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Epilogue, p.486

Bella, I won’t let anything hurt you — not even yourself. I won’t let go of you once, I promise.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Epilogue, p.486

He called you pretty. That’s practically an insult, the way you look right now. You’re much more than beautiful.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Epilogue, p.493

Twilight, again. Another ending. No matter how perfect the day is, it always has to end.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Epilogue, p.495

I don’t want my presence to take anything away from you, if I can help it. I want you to be human. I want your life to continue as it would have if I’d died in nineteen-eighteen like I should have.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Epilogue, p.495

You thought that would be a black tie occasion, did you?
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Epilogue, p.496

I’d rather treat it like a joke, though, than believe you’re serious.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Epilogue, p.497

So ready for this to be the end, for this to be the twilight of your life, though your life has barely started. You’re ready to give up everything.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Epilogue, p.497

I’m not worth it.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Epilogue, p.497

You can’t really believe that I would give in so easily.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Epilogue, p.498

Is that what you dream about? Being a monster?
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Epilogue, p.498

I will stay with you — isn’t that enough?
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Epilogue, p.498

Yes, it is enough. Enough for forever.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Epilogue, p.498
