The Twilight series is renowned in the young adult genre and has catapulted its author Stephenie Meyer to international fame. Here are some Twilight Series quotes that redefined romance.
Did You Know?
Edward never called Bella ‘Spider Monkey’ in the book as he does in the movie.
Twilight Series was one of the defining works in the young adult genre after Harry Potter had ended. The magic had ceased and something had to fill up the void. Twilight did succeed at that, with a romantic story that had a twist. It was made into a film series Twilight Saga, which was equally popular.
Twilight Series tells the story of Bella Swan, a teenager who has just moved to Forks, Washington and she falls in love with a 104-year old vampire. The themes of love, betrayal, breakup, and death have been used in the series.
The consequences of their love form a major part of the series, not to forget the werewolves with whom Bella is friendly. Here is a compilation of quotes from this famous literary work.
Famous Twilight Quotes
“Good luck tended to avoid me.”
“Surely it was a good way to die, in the place of someone else, someone I loved. Noble, even. That ought to count for something.”
“I peeked up at him one more time, and regretted it. He was glaring down at me again, his black eyes full of revulsion. As I flinched away from him, shrinking against my chair, the phrase if looks could kill suddenly ran through my mind.”
“I vividly remembered the flat black color of his eyes the last time he’d glared at me – the color was striking against the background of his pale skin and his auburn hair. Today, his eyes were a completely different color: a strange ocher, darker than butterscotch, but with the same golden tone.”
“I like the night. Without the dark, we’d never see the stars.”
“Mostly I dream about being with you forever.”
“Death is Peaceful, Life is Harder.”
“Yes, you are exactly my brand of heroin.”

“And so the lion fell in love with the lamb…” he murmured. I looked away, hiding my eyes as I thrilled to the word. “What a stupid lamb,” I sighed. “What a sick, masochistic lion.”
Famous New Moon Quotes
✒ I felt like I was trapped in one of those terrifying nightmares, the one where you have to run, run till your lungs burst, but you can’t make your body move fast enough.
✒ But this was no dream, and, unlike the nightmare, I wasn’t running for my life; I was racing to save something infinitely more precious. My own life meant little to me today.
✒ I felt the smooth wooden floor beneath my knees, and then the palms of my hands, and then it was pressed against the skin of my cheek. I hoped that I was fainting, but, to my disappointment, I didn’t lose consciousness. The waves of pain that had only lapped at me before now reared high up and washed over my head, pulling me under. I did not resurface.
✒ 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 pass it does. Even for me.
✒ Forbidden to remember, terrified to forget; it was a hard line to walk.
✒ Unattainable and impossible, uncaring and distracted… but he was out there, somewhere. I had to believe that.
✒ I was like a lost moon – my planet destroyed in some cataclysmic, disaster-movie scenario of desolation – that continued, nevertheless, to circle in a tight little orbit around the empty space left behind, ignoring the laws of gravity.
✒ One thing I truly knew – knew it in the pit of my stomach, in the center of my bones, knew it from the crown of my head to the soles of my feet, knew it deep in my empty chest – was how love gave someone the power to break you. I’d been broken beyond repair.
✒ Once you cared about a person, it was impossible to be logical about them anymore.
✒ “The bond forged between us was not one that could be broken by absence, distance, or time. And no matter how much more special or beautiful or brilliant or perfect than me he might be, he was as irreversibly altered as I was. As I would always belong to him, so would he always be mine.”
“I’d rather die than be with anyone but you.”
“Don’t worry. You’re human – your memory is no more than a sieve. Time heals all wounds for your kind.”
“You smell just exactly the same as always. So maybe this is hell. I don’t care. I’ll take it.”
“I thought I’d explained it clearly before. Bella, I can’t live in a world where you don’t exist.”
“But how could you believe me? 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!”
“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.”
“How can I put this so that you’ll believe me? 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.”
“I told him you were planning to corrupt my youthful innocence.”
Famous Eclipse Quotes
“You are in trouble. Enormous trouble. Angry grizzly bears are going to look tame next to what is waiting for you at home.”
“I believe that. But I want you to know something – when it comes to all this enemies nonsense, I’m out. I am a neutral country. I am Switzerland. I refuse to be affected by territorial disputes between mythical creatures. Jacob is family. …
…You are… well, not exactly the love of my life, because I expect to love you for much longer than that. The love of my existence. I don’t care who’s a werewolf and who’s a vampire. If Angela turns out to be a witch, she can join the party, too.
✒ Until your heart stops beating, Bella. I’ll be here – fighting. Don’t forget that you have options.
✒ I see that you can’t live without him now. It’s too late. But I would have been healthier for you. Not a drug; I would have been the air, the sun.

I felt like – like I don’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.
“My life as a human was over, but I’ve never felt more alive. I was born to be a vampire.”
