Strength and Skill Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #10

[Bella:] That smug little smile did it. My fury peaked… I could taste the madness on my tongue – I felt it flow through me like a tidal wave of pure power… I threw my shield with all my force in my mind… ten times the distance… I set it free. (36.96)

Bella's madness unleashes a power in her that enables her to set free the full expanse of her shield. Do you think that anger makes us stronger?
