Does time heals all wounds? According to Edward, time heals all human wounds because human memories fade so quickly. This is why he believes that, after he leaves, Bella will be able to eventually forget him and move on with her life "as if he never existed." For Edward’s immortal kind, memories don't fade. Yet, Bella’s love for Edward is superhuman and withstands the test of time. She’s not able to forget him, but merely grows strong enough to bear her loss through Jacob’s love and support. When Bella spends time with Jacob, time flies. Left alone, she experiences time as never-ending.
