Hello friends. This post is a collection of quotes by Edward Cullen - a fictional character from Stephenie Meyer books.


Bella Swan walked into the flow of heated air that blew toward me from the vent. Her scent hit me like a battering ram, like an exploding grenade. There was no image violent enough to encompass the force of what happened to me in that moment. Instantly, I was transformed. [...] I was a predator. She was my prey. There was nothing else in the whole world but that truth. [...] I was a vampire, and she had the sweetest blood I'd smelled in more than eighty years. - Edward Cullen, Midnight Sun, Chapter 1

Humans were constantly desperate to feel normal, to fit in. To blend in with everyone else around them, like a featureless flock of sheep. The need was particularly strong during the insecure adolescent years. - Edward Cullen, Midnight Sun, Chapter 2

Could a dead, frozen heart beat again? It felt as though mine was about to. - Edward Cullen, Midnight Sun, Chapter 5

I'm just going to do what I want now, and let the chips fall where they may. - Edward Cullen, Midnight Sun, Chapter 6

Attraction. It was a problematic thing to contemplate. So many sides to it, so many different meanings and levels. Not the same thing as love, but tied up in it inextricably. - Edward Cullen, Midnight Sun, Chapter 7

With every fiber of my being, I ached to be a normal man, so that I could hold her in my arms without risking her life. So that I could be free to spin my own fantasies, fantasies that didn't end with her blood on my hands, her blood glowing in my eyes. - Edward Cullen, Midnight Sun, Chapter 7

Isn't this the worst luck any human could ever possibly have - to have a vampire fall in love with them? - Edward Cullen, Midnight Sun, Chapter 7

Human eyes were clouded; they saw nothing clearly. - Edward Cullen, Midnight Sun, Chapter 9

I used to know what I was doing. I used to be always sure of my course. And now everything was chaos and tumult. Yet I wouldn't trade it. Not if the chaos meant that I could be near Bella. - Edward Cullen, Midnight Sun, Chapter 9

What guardian angel would have allowed Bella to come here? To cross my path, formed, as she was, in such a fashion that there was no way I could possibly overlook her? A ridiculously potent scent to demand my attention, a silent mind to enflame my curiosity, a quiet beauty to hold my eyes, a selfless soul to earn my awe. Factor in the total lack of self-preservation so she was not repelled by me, and then of course add the wide streak of appallingly bad luck that put her always in the wrong place at the wrong time. - Edward Cullen, Midnight Sun, Chapter 10

I would fight, I would keep fighting. Whatever force it was that wanted to hurt Bella would have to go through me. No, she had no guardian angel. But I would do my best to make up for the lack. - Edward Cullen, Midnight Sun, Chapter 10

It seemed as though I was always running toward Bella or away from her, never staying in place. I would have to find some way to hold my ground if we were ever going to have any peace. - Edward Cullen, Midnight Sun, Chapter 12

I could see elements of the stories in her makeup - characters that had shaped the context of her world. There was a bit of Jane Eyre in her, a portion of Scout Finch and Jo March, a measure of Elinor Dashwood, and Lucy Pevensie. I was sure I would find more connections as I learned more about her. It was like putting together a puzzle, one with hundreds of thousands of pieces, and no depiction of the complete image to serve as a guide. Time-consuming, with many false leads, but ultimately I would be able to see the whole picture. - Edward Cullen, Midnight Sun, Chapter 13

Her dreams all had clipped wings - not like those of the usual teenager off to conquer the world. Obviously a product of facing realities long before she should have had to. - Edward Cullen, Midnight Sun, Chapter 14

I would be stronger than my monster. I would not hurt Bella. I would do the most right thing that was left to me. I would be who she needed me to be. - Edward Cullen, Midnight Sun, Chapter 15

I wanted ... so many things. Things I had not felt any need for in my entire immortal life before I met her. Things I was sure I had not wanted before I was immortal, either. And I felt that some of them, things I'd always thought impossible, might, in fact, be very possible. - Edward Cullen, Midnight Sun, Chapter 17

For the first time in a hundred years, I was grateful to be what I was. Every aspect of being a vampire - all but the danger to her - was suddenly acceptable to me, because it was what had let me live long enough to find Bella. The decades I had endured would not have been so difficult had I known what was waiting for me, that my existence was advancing toward something better than I could have imagined. It had not been years of killing time, as I had thought; it had been years of progress. Refining, preparing, mastering myself so that I could have this now. - Edward Cullen, Midnight Sun, Chapter 17

For almost ninety years I've walked among my kind, and yours ... all the time thinking I was complete in myself, not realizing what I was seeking. And not finding anything ... because you weren't alive yet. - Edward Cullen, Midnight Sun, Chapter 18

Just because we've been ... dealt a certain hand ... it doesn't mean that we can't choose to rise above - to conquer the boundaries of a destiny that none of us wanted. To try to retain whatever essential humanity we can. - Edward Cullen, Midnight Sun, Chapter 18

Love and lust don't always keep the same company. - Edward Cullen, Midnight Sun, Chapter 18

When Bella said the word forever, it didn't mean the same thing to her as it meant to me. For her, it meant merely a very long time. It meant she couldn't see the end yet. How could anyone who had lived only seventeen years comprehend what fifty years meant, let alone eternity? She was human, not a frozen immortal. Within just a few years, she would reinvent herself many times over. Her priorities would shift as her world grew wider. The things she wanted now wouldn't be the things she wanted then. - Edward Cullen, Midnight Sun, Chapter 19

He's not used to being thwarted, no matter how insignificant the object. He thinks of himself as a hunter and nothing else. His existence is consumed with tracking, and a challenge is all he asks of life. Suddenly we've presented him with a beautiful challenge - a large clan of strong fighters all bent on protecting the one vulnerable element. You wouldn't believe how euphoric he is now. It's his favorite game, and we've just made it his most exciting game ever. - Edward Cullen, Midnight Sun, Chapter 23

I'd always instinctively known that there was no deity for my kind. It made no sense for immortals to have a god; we had taken ourselves out of any god's power. We created our lives, and the only power strong enough to take them away again was another like us. Earthquakes couldn't crush us, floods couldn't drown us, fires were too slow to catch us. Sulfur and brimstone were irrelevant. We were the gods of our own alternate universe. Inside the mortal world but over it, never slaves to its laws, only our own. - Edward Cullen, Midnight Sun, Chapter 28

It's possible to take bravery to the point where it becomes insanity. - Edward Cullen, Midnight Sun, Chapter 29

She stared at the twinkle lights spinning around us. Her heartbeat was slower than the tempo of the song playing, so I moved to that rhythm instead. A hundred voices, spoken and thought, swirled past us, but I didn't really hear them. The sound of her heart was the only sound that mattered. - Edward Cullen, Midnight Sun, Epilogue

Twilight again. Another ending. No matter how perfect the day is, it always has to end. - Edward Cullen, Midnight Sun, Epilogue

I decided as long as I was going to hell, I might as well do it thoroughly. - Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 5

Don't be offended, but you seem to be one of those people who just attract accidents like a magnet. So ... try not to fall into the ocean or get run over or anything, all right? - Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 5

Isn't it supposed to be like this? The glory of first love, and all that. It's incredible, isn't it, the difference between reading about something, seeing it in the pictures, and experiencing it? - Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 14
