The quote you chose from Wuthering Heights is so ominous. I love it.

My friends and I were actually discussing that quote from Romeo & Juliet just a few days ago.

The "violent ends" portion of it scared me a bit, too. However, with Victoria hot on their trail and the rivalry between the werewolves and vampires growing, I think violence is inevitable. The question is, how far will it go? Will they destroy Victoria on their own terms, or will they wage a full-out war?

Some of my friends suggested that the end would be more personal, you know, with just Edward, Jacob, and Bella.

My only response to that was if Edward stabs Jacob and then commits suicide with Bella in the end I'm going to be one unhappy reader.

Haha I laughed really hard when I read this. For some reason I pictured an unhappy Twilight fan with one hand on their hip and the other clutching one of the books, and shaking their finger angrily. Yeah...I'm weird. [/quote]

Omg! I saw the exact same thing in my head... haha! Great minds think alike, I guess.

So far I think that all of the quotes have been foreshawdowing and I think that " . . . treachery and violence are spears pointed at both ends; they wound those who resort to them worse than their enemies." would seem like the almost perfect quote. Now all we have to do is wait and see what the wonderful mind of Stepenie Meyer conjures up.
Come, gentle night; come, loving, black-browed night;
Give me my Romeo; and, when I shall die,
Take him and cut him out in little stars,
And he will make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night...
Romeo and Juliet Act III scene ii

She said she was going to choose something from a poet...I think it was Robert Browning.

Are you sure about that? Robert Browning is pretty awesome, I'm impressed. Where did you read about it? :D I thought she'd use a quote from Wuthering Heights...

Right here she said she will probably use a quote from Robert Frost, not Robert Browning in the beginning. :P

Awww. I like Robert Browning...he's awesome. But Robert Frost isn't bad either. I wonder what she would use. The Road not Taken? Or a different poem?

Oh I remember reading that now! Maybe she changed her mind though, I have been scanning my Wuthering Heights to come up with all the possible quotes she could use lol. I'm a nerd. Not to long to go now though.

"But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil,
thou shalt not eat of it:
for in the day that thou eatest therof
thou shalt surely die."
Genesis 2:17

ah.. quotes I love them. so here is my opinion on what this quote has to do with the series. "knowledge of good and evil" is like bella knowing about the existence of vampires and werewoves "the day that thou eatest thereof" is like once you know about it "thou shalt surely die" well vampires are technically dead right??? no pulse no need to breathe, no temperature(except cold), basically dead or if you want to go deeper in the bible by "thou shalt surely die" it meant die spiritually, you will be seperated from God forever. are not vampires believe to be sent to hell no matter what? or if your edward "thou shalt surely die" could be.. a death of the soul???
you know if you really think about it DEMONS are just ANGELS with an attitude problem.

Wow, I never really thought that far into it, but I think you're right with what you came up with so far. It may hold a hint of foreshadowing. And now I'm really worried about the "violent ends" part.
