Quote #2

[Jacob to Bella:] "What was the point of me loving you? What was the point of you loving him? When you die…" (10.59)

Jacob believes that if Bella dies, everything they've experienced together, their sacrifices of love for each other and their joys and pains, will have been in vain.

[Jacob to Bella:] "Why do you always have to love the wrong things, Bella?" (10.156)
