I’d had more than my fair share of near-death experiences; it wasn’t something you ever really got used to.

Bella Swan, Breaking Dawn, Book One Preface, p.1

You could run from someone you feared, you could try to fight someone you hated. All my reactions were geared toward those kinds of killers – the monsters, the enemies. 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 your beloved, how could you not give it? If it was someone you truly loved?

Bella Swan, Breaking Dawn, Book One Preface, p.1

It was still considered rude to stare at people, wasn’t it? Didn’t that apply to me anymore?

Bella Swan, Breaking Dawn, Chapter 1, p.4

Personally, I didn’t get it. But then, I was just proud I could distinguish between the symbols for Toyota, Ford, and Chevy. This car was glossy black, sleek, and pretty, but it was still just a car to me.

Bella Swan, Breaking Dawn, Chapter 1, p.5

I briefly contemplated my issues with words like fiancé, wedding, husband, etc. I just couldn’t put it together in my head. On the one hand, I had been raised to cringe at the very thought of poofy white dresses and bouquets. But more than that, I just couldn’t reconcile a staid, respectable, dull concept like husband with my concept of Edward. It was like casting an archangel as an accountant; I couldn’t visualize him in any commonplace role.

Bella Swan, Breaking Dawn, Chapter 1, p.6

I miss my truck.

Bella Swan, Breaking Dawn, Chapter 1, p.7

Body armor. Four thousand pounds of body armor. And missile-proof glass? Nice. What had happened to good old-fashioned bulletproof?

Bella Swan, Breaking Dawn, Chapter 1, p.7

Ha ha. Because I was so fragilely human, so accident-prone, so much a victim to my own dangerous bad luck, apparently I needed a tank-resistant car to keep me safe. Hilarious. I was sure he and his brothers had enjoyed the joke quite a bit behind my back.

Bella Swan, Breaking Dawn, Chapter 1, p.8

Virtual indestructibility was just one of the many perks I was looking forward to. The best parts about being a Cullen were not expensive cars and impressive credit cards.

Bella Swan, Breaking Dawn, Chapter 1, p.9

The phrase “bite my head off” was not entirely a figure of speech when it came to Leah.

Bella Swan, Breaking Dawn, Chapter 1, p.11

I’m no Alice – you’re just predictable.

Seth Clearwater, Breaking Dawn, Chapter 1, p.11

The friendship that had sprung up between Edward and Seth was something that still boggled my mind. It was proof, though, that things didn’t have to be this way. That vampires and werewolves could get along just fine, thank you very much, if they were of a mind to.

Bella Swan, Breaking Dawn, Chapter 1, p.12

Stop fidgeting, Bella. Please try to remember that you’re not confessing to a murder here.

Edward Cullen, Breaking Dawn, Chapter 1, p.13

Wait till he hangs his gun up!

Bella Swan, Breaking Dawn, Chapter 1, p.13

Edward grimaced, and I knew it was in objection to the word okay. He probably would have used something more like wonderful or perfect or glorious.

Bella Swan, Breaking Dawn, Chapter 1, p.14

I wanted to elbow Edward in the ribs, but I knew that move would only give me a bruise. I’d told Edward that people would immediately jump to this conclusion! What other possible reason would sane people have for getting married at eighteen? (His answer then had made me roll my eyes. Love. Right.)

Bella Swan, Breaking Dawn, Chapter 1, p.15

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?

Edward Cullen, Breaking Dawn, Chapter 1, p.15

For just an instant, listening to the absolute confidence in his voice, I experienced a rare moment of insight. I could see, fleetingly, the way the world looked to him.

Bella Swan, Breaking Dawn, Chapter 1, p.15

I’m one hundred percent sure about Edward.

Bella Swan, Breaking Dawn, Chapter 1, p.16
