Twilight Quotations

The hours I spend with you I look upon as sort of a perfumed garden, a dim twilight, and a fountain singing to it. You and you alone make me feel that I am alive. Other men it is said have seen angels, but I have seen thee and thou art enough.
George Edward Moore

Theodore Roosevelt

I'm not a 'Twilight' boy; I'll never be as good looking as those lads, and that's fair enough.
Luke Evans

Twilight drops her curtain down, and pins it with a star.
