“I’ve never given much thought to how I would die. But, dying in the place of someone I love seems like a good way to go” –Bella
“And so the lion fell in love with the lamb.” Believe it or not, this great quote from the book had been changed for the movie! But Author Stephanie Meyer insisted it changed back, because so many girls had tattooed that very line on their ankles!
Why? Because this phrase speaks to the transforming power of love. It also speaks to the danger and verboten nature of love. Love is dangerous in a good way, because it changes everything. An ancient prophet spoke of a future time when love would so consume the world that “wolves will rest with lambs…” And this film captures that truth in a way that few other films ever have.
“The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed.”
