Love Quotes in Twilight

How we cite our quotes: (Chapter. Paragraph)

Quote #13

[Edward to Bella:] "You are my life now," he answered simply. (15.30)

This is about as strong a statement one can make about love.

Quote #14

[Bella:] "Will you be?" I asked, suddenly anxious. "Will you really be here?"

[Edward:] "As long as you want me," he assured me.

[Bella:] "I'll always want you," I warned him. "Forever." (15.80-82)

Bella hopes Edward stays with her forever. This sets up their conflict about immortality. Bella knows that the only way she can be with Edward is to become a vampire, but he wants her to remain human.

[Edward to Bella:] "Having you know about everything, not needing to keep secrets from you. But I didn't expect to feel more than that. I like it. It makes me…happy." (16.95)

Edward is excited that he can share everything with Bella. He doesn't have to hide his sparkling skin, his speed, or anything else from her. But would you agree that he doesn't keep any secrets from her?
