Quote #1

[Angela to Bella:] "Edward's only human, Bella. He's going to react like any other boy." (6.62)

Angela taps into an emotion, existing in both the natural and supernatural world: jealousy. Jealousy seems to be a universally strong emotion. What makes it so powerful?

Quote #2

[Edward to Bella:] "This is only about you. All I care is that you're safe." (6.171)

Is Edward trying to protect Bella from Jacob's werewolf rage or from her attraction to Jacob?

Quote #3

[Rosalie to Bella:] "You see I was mostly jealous because he wanted you not me." (7.94)

Rosalie still has trouble swallowing that Edward would pick Bella over her, even though she's more beautiful. That attitude makes her seem pretty shallow, don't you think?
