Warfare Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #4

[Bella to Edward:] "When it comes to all this enemies nonsense, I'm out. I am a neutral country. I am Switzerland." (6.173)

If it really came to a war between werewolves and vampires, would Bella still remain neutral? Is she being unfair toward Edward and Jacob in abstaining from a decision?

Quote #5

[Jasper to Bella:] "You have to imagine the way [the world] looks to the powerful, the greedy, the perpetually thirsty…" (13.9)

Jasper describes the motivation for war in the supernatural world. How many wars in our human world are fought for greed and power?

Quote #6

Alice was on her toes, Jacob leaning down toward her, both of their faces lit up with excitement, both of their noses wrinkled against the smell. (17.178)

Do you think Alice and Jacob would be as excited about killing if they didn't have supernatural skills?
