Sacrifice Quotes in Twilight
How we cite our quotes: (Chapter. Paragraph)
[Edward to Bella:] "Which is exactly why I should. But don't worry. I'm essentially a selfish creature. I crave your company too much to do what I should." (13.61)
Edward likes being with Bella too much to make the "right" sacrifice, which makes him feel selfish.
[Bella to Edward:] "You already know how I feel, of course," I finally said. "I'm here…which, roughly translated, means I would rather die than stay away from you." I frowned. "I'm an idiot." (13.127)
Is Bella being selfish or selfless here? Is risking her life to be with Edward truly a sacrifice on her part?
