Memory and the Past Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #13

"And she did smell so delicious. I still regret that I never got to taste. She smelled even better than you do. Sorry – I don't mean to be offensive. You have a very nice smell. Floral, somehow…" (22.123) James to Bella

James continues to obsess over the one human that got away from him. He can't seem to forget it.

Quote #14

[Bella:] A flash of painful images from the last time I'd seen Alice reminded me of something. "Did Alice see the tape?" I asked anxiously.

[Edward:] "Yes." A new sound darkened his voice, a tone of sheer hatred.

"She was always in the dark, that's why didn't remember. (24.45-47)

Though Alice doesn't remember her past, she now knows about her life as a human.
