Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer

  • His touch brought with it the strangest sense of relief--as if I'd been in pain and that pain had suddenly ceased.
  • The right thing isn't always real obvious. Sometimes the right thing for one person is the wrong thing for someone else. So...good luck figuring that out.
  • There's always a compromise.
  • A smart person looks at all sides of a decision.
  • Some people will go to any lengths to delude themselves.
  • It's possible to love more than one person at a time.
  • I couldn't allow what hurt me to influence my decisions anymore. It was too little, much too late, but I had to do what was right now. Maybe it was already done for me.
  • I may gain forgiveness, but that doesn't let me escape the consequences.
  • Broken rules demand a consequence.
  • You are safe inside your mind. No one can reach you there.

New Moon by Stephenie Meyer

  • No one wants a spotlight when they're likely to fall on their face.
  • Some people's lives are better because I exist.
  • Change was coming. I could feel it. It wasn't a pleasant prospect, not when life was perfect the way it was.
  • I saw no reason for fear. I couldn't imagine anything in the world that there was left to be afraid of, not physically at least. One of the few advantages of losing everything.
  • It didn't feel like the pain had weakened over time, rather that I'd grown strong enough to bear it.
  • He could steal my pictures and reclaim his gifts but that didn't put things back the way they'd been before I'd met him.
  • Where was the logic in sticking to an agreement that had already been violated by the other party?
  • Love gave someone the power to break you.
  • Sometimes...things are set in motion, and then it's too late.
  • When people get too excited, accidents happen...
  • Once you cared about a person, it was impossible to be logical about them anymore.
  • It's not what you are, stupid, it's what you do!
  • Love is irrational. The more you loved someone, the less sense anything made.
  • How many ways can one heart be mangled and still be expected to keep beating?
  • After all the thousand times I've told you I love you, how could you let one word break your faith in me?
  • Why can you believe the lie, but not the truth?
  • What if you were so stubbornly sure that you were right, that you wouldn't even consider the truth? Would the truth be silenced, or would it try to break through?
  • Being angry about things was easier than feeling guilty.
