“Did you know that ‘I told you so’ has a brother, Jacob? His name is ‘Shut the hell up.’

-Bella Cullen, pg. 188

“All I really saw was Edward’s face; it filled my vision and overwhelmed my mind. His eyes were a buttery, burning gold; his perfect face was almost severe with the depth of his emotion. And then, as he met my awed gaze, he broke into a breathtaking smile of exultation.”
-Bella Swan, Chapter 3, p.48

“Don’t be afraid. We belong together.”
-Bella Cullen, Chapter 5, p.85

“His arms wrapped around me, holding me against him, summer and winter. It felt like every nerve ending in my body was a live wire.”
-Bella Cullen, Chapter 5, p.85

“Fire and ice, somehow existing together without destroying each other. More proof that I belonged with him.”
-Bella Cullen, Chapter 5, p.87

“Why am I covered in feathers?”

“In that moment, as the minister said his part, my world, which had been upside down for so long now, seemed to settle into its proper position. I saw just how silly I’d been for fearing this – as if it were an unwanted birthday gift or an embarrassing exhibition, like the prom. I looked into Edward’s shining, triumphant eyes and knew that I was winning, too. Because nothing else mattered but that I could stay with him.”
-Bella, p.49

“We’re going to tell Alice that I ran right to the clothes… We’re going to tell her I spent hours in there playing dress-up. We’re going to lie”

-Bella, pg. 479

“How did people do this – swallow all their fears and trust someone else so implicitly with every imperfection and fear they had – with less than the absolute commitment that Edward had given me? If it weren’t Edward out there, if I didn’t know in every cell of my body that he loved me as much as I loved him – unconditionally and irrevocably and, to be honest, irrationally – I’d never be able to get up off this floor.”
-Bella Cullen, Breaking Dawn, Chapter 5, p.83

“You’re supposed to be a part of my life- I can feel that, and so can you.”
-Bella (to Jacob), pg.298


“Charlie, I realize that I’ve gone about this out of order. Traditionally, I should have asked you first. I mean no disrespect, but since Bella has already said yes and I don’t want to diminish her choice in the matter, instead of asking you for her hand, I’m asking for your blessing. We’re getting married, Charlie. I love her more than anything in the world, more than my own life, and – by some miracle – she loves me that way, too. Will you give us your blessing?”

-Jacob, p.247

“It had once probably been a big mixing bowl, but she’d bent the bowl back in on itself until it was shaped almost exactly like a dog dish. I had to be impressed with her quick craftsmanship. And her attention to detail. She’d scratched the word Fido into the side. Excellent handwriting.”
-Jacob, p.294

“Hey, do you know what you call a blonde with a brain? A golden retriever.”
-Jacob, p.294

“You know how to drown a blonde Rosealie? Glue a mirror to the bottom of a pool.” Jacob, p. 271

“Silently, I lifted my doggy bowl off the floor. Then, with a quick, powerful flip of my wrist, I threw it into the back of Blondie’s head so hard that – with an earsplitting bang – it smashed flat before it ricocheted across the room and snapped the round top piece off the thick newel post at the foot of the stairs.”
-Jacob, p.304

“Everything inside me came undone as I stared at the tiny porcelain face of the half-vampire, half-human baby. All the lines that held me to my life were sliced apart in swift cuts, like clipping the strings to a bunch of balloons. Everything that made me who I was – my love for the dead girl upstairs, my love for my father, my loyalty to my new pack, the love for my other brothers, my hatred for my enemies, my home, my name, my self – disconnected from me in that second – snip, snip, snip – and floated up into space. I was not left drifting. A new string held me where I was. The gravity of the earth no longer tied me to the place where I stood. It was the baby girl in the blond vampire’s arms that held me here now. Renesmee.”
-Jacob Black, p.360

“Why didn’t I just walk away? Oh right, because I’m an idiot.”
-Jake , pg. 185

“Back in the day, you could count on Paul for a fight pretty much whenever. You didn’t have to hit him then – any mild insult would do. It didn’t take a lot to flip him out of control.

-Jacob Black, p.147

“All this mandatory love-at-first-sight was completely sickening!”
-Jacob Black, p.147

“Sometimes I thought it might be fun to enter a race – you know, like the Olympic trials or something. It would be cool to watch the expressions on those star athlete’s faces when I blew by them. Only I was pretty sure the testing they did to make sure you weren’t on steroids would probably turn up some really freaky crap in my blood.”
-Jacob Black, p.156

“I wondered – would a bullet through my temple actually kill me or just leave a really big mess for me to clean up?”
-Jacob Black, p.148

“Right now, I wouldn’t mind dismantling a haystack. At least that would give me something to do.”
-Jacob Black, p.150

“I felt like – like I didn’t know what. Like this wasn’t real. Like I was in some Goth version of a bad sitcom. Instead of being the A/V dweeb about to ask the head cheerleader to the prom, I was the finished-second-place werewolf about to ask the vampire’s wife to shack up and procreate. Nice.”
-Jacob, pg. 185


“Her fashion sense hasn’t improved as much as her balance.”
-Alice, pg. 409

“Oh, give her some credit. She wasn’t going to do anything. You’d want a closer look, too.”
-Alice Cullen, Breaking Dawn, Chapter 22, p.439

-Emmett, p.490

-Emmett, p.491

“‘Bout time somebody scored around here.”
-Emmett, p.511

“Oooo, scary”
-Emmet, page 517


Edward: “Were lucky Esme thought to add an extra room. No one was planning for Ness-Renesmee”

    i’m surprised that quotes from the battle scene weren’t included. Some of my favorites are:

    Edward: “Chelsea is trying to break our bindings, but she can’t find them. Are you doing that?
    Bella: “I am all over this”

    Bella: “Oh, Jasper?”
    Jasper: “Yes Bella?”
    Bella: “I’m curious-why is J. Jenks scared stiff by just the sound of your name?”
    Jasper: “It’s just been my experience that some kinds of relationships work better motivated by fear rather than monetary gain.”

    There are more but i can’t think of them right now!

    Thank you for sharing such beautiful quotes.

  14. vega says:

    When you loved the one who was killing you,it left you no options. How could you run, how could you fight, when doing so would hurt that beloved one? If your life was all you had to give, how could you not give it? If it was someone you truly loved?

    -Bella page.1

  15. Smilie.Tasha says:

    Erm… were to start….. I love twilight so much, its basically my life. i watched all the films more than once and read all the books at least 5 times. i know I’m sad but i really love it. my favorite quote is ” And so the ion fell in love with the lamb”…. and when i’m old enough I’m going to get it as a tattoo on my wrist. Just to say Stephanie your an awesome author and thank you for bringing the world of Twilight into my life ……………. 🙂

  16. Looney tooney says:

    Sorry. I will never, ever get it. Scrawny, pale, emo, ice cold, controlling, manipulative, dishonest mass murderer, make fun of your intelligence, question your judgement ,make you feel so insignificant that you throw away your life at 18 Eddie or smokin’ hot sweet, kind, bring out the best in you, have an awesome life full of so much warmth & love & happiness that you had a vision of it the first time you kissed him, so much happiness that you’ll need a crowbar to pry the f’in smile of your face when you die Jake. Bell of course being the wackadoo that Meyers wrote her as picks the one that was ready made for a Bronte tome. BTW those books that Bella likes to read and then believe love should be like that (full of pain & regret & loss) – you know stuff like Wuthering Heights and Romeo & Juliet. They are so not love stories, they are love warnings. I.E. if your relationship is like this run away really really fast.

  17. brooklyn says:
