TTIC33 ~ Favorite New Moon Quote

Image Image Image
I love quotes that capture a moment - just a sentence or two that stick out and remain in your memory forever. My challenge is to choose one from New Moon (that is a challenge in and of itself ~ choosing just one) that sticks with you. One of my favorite quotes in the whole series is from Jake, of course, and since I have used it already, I will 'challenge' myself to find another. But as Challenge Mistress, I will wield my considerable power and share it anyway - even if it is a little long.

Jacob was simply a perpetually happy person, and he carried that happiness with him like an aura, sharing it with whoever was near him. Like an earthbound sun, whenever someone was within his gravitational pull, Jacob warmed them. It was natural, a part of who he was. No wonder I was so eager to see him.

~Bella Swan, New Moon, Chapter 6, p.145

Craft Portion: Create a project that captures the moment and complements the quote you've chosen.
Comment Portion: Explain why your quote is memorable to you and what about it 'grabbed' you initially.

Well, hey – that was easier said than done. Mainly because I seem to have loaned out NM to someone (WHO?) because it is not on my bookshelf. Gah. HOWEVER, given the spirit of the challenge, I remember something Jake said that obviously stuck with me. It is later in the story, ****SPOILERS –if you have not read New Moon yet, STOP HERE!!*** TTIC33 NewMoonQuoteafter he and Bella have had some heated disagreements about werewolves and vampires, and the situation they are in because of them. He tells her: “I’ll always be your friend. No matter what you love.” I love that sentiment for a couple of reasons. First, it proves that he is willing to make the effort (and we know how monumental that effort is for him) to accept Edward and Bella’s relationship, in the name of their friendship. He is a true friend no matter how much he wants to be more, or how much he detests the existence of Edward, let alone the fact that he is a mortal enemy of Jake’s tribe. Jake is something special. Secondly, he gets his wiseass dig in there with the “what” in place of “who”… That’s my Jacob.
