New Moon

This page is dedicated to fan-favorite quotes from New Moon.

~Bella~

“It was heaven—right smack in the middle of hell.”
-Bella, New Moon pg. 491

“As I stared at his too beautiful face, trying to understand the change, it suddenly struck me that I was really here, in Edward’s arms, however fleetingly, and that we were not—at this exact moment—about to be killed.”
-Bella, p.488

“Here in his arms, it was so easy to fantasize that he wanted me. I didn’t want to think about his motivations now—about whether he acted this way to keep me calm while we were still in danger, or if he just felt guilty for where we were and relieved that he wasn’t responsible for my death. Maybe the time apart had been enough that I didn’t bore him for the moment. But it didn’t matter. I was so much happier pretending.”
-Bella, p. 490

“He continued to kiss my hair, my forehead, my wrists… but never my lips, and that was good. After all, how many ways can one heart be mangled and still be expected to keep beating? I’d lived through a lot that should have finished me in the last few days, but it didn’t make me feel strong. Instead, I felt horribly fragile, like one word could shatter me.”
-Bella, p.495

“The hardest part is feeling… out of control. I tried to smile without much success.”

-Bella, Page 317

“I did drown. Crap, crap crap! this is gonna kill Charlie.”

-Bella, New Moon, 502

“And yet, I found I could survive. I was alert, I felt the pain- the aching loss that radiated out from my chest sending wracking waves of hurt through my limbs and head- but it was manageable. I could live through it. It didn’t feel like the pain had weakened over time, rather that I’d grown strong enough to bear it.”

-Bella, p.118

“There was something to search for. Unattainable and impossible, uncaring and distracted… but he was out there, somewhere. I had to believe that.”

-Bella, p.160

“I was like a lost moon- my planet destroyed in some cataclysmic, diaster movie scenario of desolation- that continued in a tight little orbit around the empty space left behind, ignoring the laws of gravity.”

-Bella, p.201

“Love is irrational, I reminded myself. The more you loved someone, the less sense anything made.”

-Bella, p.340

~Edward~

“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, p.71

“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, p.510

“The odds are always stacked against us. Mistake after mistake. I’ll never criticize Romeo again.”
-Edward, p. 508

“I thought I’d explained it clearly before. Bella, I can’t live in a world where you don’t exist.”
-Edward, 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? 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! 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, p.510

“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 light. I couldn’t see the stars anymore. And there was no more reason for anything.”
-Edward, pg 514

“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…”
-Edward, p.510

“I can’t believe how quick it was. I didn’t feel a thing- They’re very good,” he mused, closing his eyes again and pressing his lips against my hair. His voice was like honey and velvet. “Death that hath sucked the honey of thy breath hath had no power yet upon the beauty” he murmured and I recognized the line spoken by Romeo in the tomb. The clock boomed out it’s final chime. “You smell just exactly the same as always,” he went on. ‘So maybe this is hell. I don’t care, I’ll take it.’”
-Edward to Bella in Volterra, pg. 452

“it was only a matter of time-and not much of it-before I showed up at your window and begged you to take me back. I’d be happy to beg now, if you’d like it.”

-Edward, New moon, pg 514

“You’re wounding my ego, Bella. I just proposed to you, and you think it’s a joke.”

-Edward, pg 540

“Well, I’m nearly a hundred and ten. It’s time I settled down.”

-Edward, pg 540

“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, pg 503

“I’ll be back so soon you won’t have time to miss me. Look after my heart–I’ve left it with you.”

-Edward, page 95

“So eager for eternal damnation.”

-Edward, New Moon, page 546.

~Jacob~

-Jacob Black, New Moon, Chapter 12, p.283

“Did you honestly not know? Was I the one who told you what he was?”
-Jacob Black, New Moon, Chapter 12, p.286

“See what I mean about loyalty? It’s the same for me, only worse. You can’t imagine how tight I’m bound…”
-Jacob Black, New Moon, Chapter 12, p.286

“If I thought it was too… too risky, I wouldn’t have come. But Bella, I made you a promise. I had no idea it would be so hard to keep, but that doesn’t mean I’m not going to try.”
-Jacob Black, New Moon, Chapter 12, p.288

“I won’t lose you, Bella. Not for this.”
-Jacob Black, New Moon, Chapter 12, p.290

“Well, I’m so sorry that I can’t be the right kind of monster for you, Bella. I guess I’m just not as great as a bloodsucker, am I?”
-Jacob Black, New Moon, Chapter 13, p.307

“You really, honestly don’t mind that I morph into a giant dog?”

-Jacob Black, New Moon, Chapter 13, p.312

“You’ve got to have a little more confidence in us than that. It’s insulting.”
-Jacob Black, New Moon, Chapter 13, p.317

“When I… changed, it was the most… horrible, the most terrifying thing I’ve ever been through—worse than anything I could have imagined.”
-Jacob Black, New Moon, Chapter 13, p.319

“Who’s afraid of the big, bad wolf?”
-Jacob Black, New Moon, Chapter 13, p.321

-Alice, New Moon, pg 438

“Just because I’m not looking doesn’t mean I don’t see…”

-Alice, New Moon, page 384.

~Carlisle~

“What I enjoy the very most is when my enhanced abilities let me save someone who would otherwise been lost. It’s pleasant knowing that, thanks to what I can do, some peoples’ lives are better because I exist.” -Carlise, New Moon, page 34.

~Other~

“Totally shredded,” Jared said. “Billy said this was the last pair he could afford–guess Jacob’s going barefoot now.”

  2. Gabrielle says:

    Time passes. Even when it seems impossible. Even when each tick of the second hand aches like the pulse of blood behind a bruise. It passes unevenly, in strange lurches and dragging lulls, but passes it does. Even for me.

    Forbidden to remember, terrified to forget.

    Love, life, meaning…over.
    All are Bellas

  13. Ana J says:

    I read New Moon 5 times in one night and i cried at chapter 3 every time! I HAVE to buy these books! My fav quote was when Bella says:
    Time passes. Even when it seems impossible. Even when each tick of the second hand aches like the pulse of blood behind a bruise. It passes unevenly, in strange lurches and dragging lulls, but passes it does. Even for me.
    It’s beautifully written. I was heartbroken through the middle of the book and i found myself cursing at some characters OUT LOUD, and my mom came to my room at 3 in the morning to see why i was swearing so loudly. oops.

  14. maddie says:

    I love that Alice quote, when I am reading the books and I find a quote that is cool/funny I read it out to my mum… she says she doesnt mind. she is curious about how i read the books over and over but i am still as absorbed in them as when i read them the first time.

  16. EC says:

    “And yet, I found I could survive. I was alert, I felt the pain- the aching loss that radiated out from my chest sending wracking waves of hurt through my limbs and head- but it was manageable. I could live through it. It didn’t feel like the pain had weakened over time, rather that I’d grown strong enough to bear it.” Bella p.118

    “There was something to search for. Unattainable and impossible, uncaring and distracted… but he was out there, somewhere. I had to believe that” Bella p.160

    “I was like a lost moon- my planet destroyed in some cataclysmic, diaster movie scenario of desolation- that continued in a tight little orbit around the empty space left behind, ignoring the laws of gravity.” Bella p.201

    HAHAHAHAHA! I BUSTED OUT LAUGHING WHEN I READ THIS!!!!!!

  17. TwilightGirl says:

    I’ve read new moon 5 times, and I always skip the part when he (edward) won’t talk to bella because it hurts more for me than the break-up…..

  18. Camilla says:

    This is my favorite quote in New Moon
    Gianna: “The lobby is two floors down, and exits to the street. Goodbye, now,” she added pleasantly.
    Bella: I wondered if her competence would be enough to save her.
    Alice shot her a dark look.
    New Moon, pg. 491

  19. Ginge says:

    Am I The Only One Who Remembers This Quote Said By Alice In Volterra ???
    “I Think She’s Having Hysterics. Maybe You Should Slap Her” (Not Sure What Chapter Or Page…. It Was From Memory Lol…)

    And Omg… I Have Read New From Cover To Cover Only Twice… But I Have Read Chapter 1 – 3, 17 – The End Of It Lol 4 Times….. I Miss Out The Bits With Out Edward Lol….

  29. SindiG says:

    Death, hath hats sucked the honey of thy breathe hath had no power yet upon thy beauty…

    maybe someday, years from now if the pain would just decrease to the point where i could bear it i would be able to look back on those few shourt months that would always be the best of my life

    as if he’d never existed? that was insanity. it was a promise that he could never keep, a promise that was broken as soon as he’d made it

    it was like there had never been any hole in my chest. i was perfect not healed but as if there had been no wound in the first place.

    id never seen anything more beautiful even as i ran gasping and screaming i could appreciate that. and the last seven nonths did not meant nothing and his words in the forest meant nothing and it did not matter if he did not want me i would never want anything but him no matter how long i lived…

    i really love this book
    it makes me cry all the time

  30. Francesca says:

    “Bye Bella! I really Hope you don’t die”

  31. Jessie says:

    you don’t even have the best quote!
    “…LIKE A TRIBUTE TO SOME PAGAN GOD OF BEAUTY”

  32. Smriti Sharma says:

    The best quote ever:“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 light. I couldn’t see the stars anymore. And there was no more reason for anything.”
    -Edward, pg 514

    1)So the lion fell in love with the lamb…..

    2)Time passes. Even when it seems impossible. Even when each tick of the second hand aches like the pulse of blood behind a bruise. It passes unevenly, in strange lurches and dragging lulls, but passes it does. Even for me.

    3)Forbidden to remember, terrified to forget.

    4)Love, life, meaning…over.

    5)“After all the thousand times I’ve told you I love you, how could you let one word break your faith in me? 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! 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, p.510

    6)“I was like a lost moon- my planet destroyed in some cataclysmic, diaster movie scenario of desolation- that continued in a tight little orbit around the empty space left behind, ignoring the laws of gravity.” Bella p.201

    7)Who’s afraid of the big, bad wolf?
    Jacob Black, New Moon, Chapter 13, p.321

    8)“Try not to trip,” she added. “We don’t have time for a concussion today.” -Alice, pg 441

    9)“You’re wounding my ego, Bella. I just proposed to you, and you think it’s a joke.” -Edward, pg 540

    10)“Well, I’m nearlya hundred and ten. It’s time I settled down.” -Edward, pg 540

    Its completely weird that all my favourite qoutes revolve around twilight (the ones that don’t, aren’t mentioned here)
