How we cite our quotes:

Quote #1

Someone like me shouldn't be human. Someone with my luck ought to be little less helpless. (4.4)

Is Bella really as helpless as she makes herself out to be?

Quote #2

[Bella to Jacob:] "Am I the only one who has to get old?… Damn it!… Where's the justice?" (5.67)

Do you think Bella would have problems with aging if she didn't have supernatural, non-aging friends?

Quote #3

[Jacob to Bella:] "When we get enough control to quit… we stop phasing for a solid length of time we age again." (5.77)

If, in our human world, we were able to control aging, what age would most people choose to stay at?
