20 CONSENSUS VOICE: “My advice: Focus on Pattinson and Stewart. They make you understand why the books sold 17 million copies.” -- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone Twilight © 2008 Summit Entertainment. Review © David Bruce

21 “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 “The greatest way to show love for friends is to die for them” – Jesus (CEV) Twilight © 2008 Summit Entertainment. Review © David Bruce

22 “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. Twilight Review © David Bruce

23 “The bottom line is that: (a) People are never perfect, but love can be. (b) Love is the one and only way that the mediocre and vile can be transformed… We waste time looking for the perfect lover, instead of creating the perfect love.” --Tom Robbins Twilight © 2008 Summit Entertainment. Review © David Bruce

24 “The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed.” --Carl Jung Twilight © 2008 Summit Entertainment. Review © David Bruce
