Quotes (#7)

Morning Swooners,

So I'm going through a mega book hangover right now after just finishing Divergent by Veronica Roth. So, to appeal to my more obsessive nature...Here are some of my favorite quotes from the book, because what else would I be thinking about at a time like this!?

"Sometimes crying or laughing are the only options left, and laughing feels better right now." Veronica Roth, Divergent

"Politeness is deception in pretty packaging." Veronica RothDivergent

"Human beings as a whole cannot be good for long before the bad creeps back in and poisons us again." Veronica RothDivergent

"Human reason can excuse any evil; that is why it's so important that we dont rely on it." Veronica RothDivergent

"He told me once before to be brave, and though I have stood still while knives spun toward my face and jumped off a roof, I never thought I would need bravery in the small moments of my life. I do." Veronica RothDivergent

"Maybe there's more we all could have done, but we just have to let the guilt remind us to do better next time." Veronica RothDivergent

"'But please, when you see an opportunity...' He presses his hand to my cheek, cold and strong, and tilts my head up so I have to look at him. His eyes glint. They almost look predatory. 'Ruin Them.'" Veronica RothDivergent

"'We've all started to put down the virtues of the other factions in the process of bolstering our own. I don't want to do that. I want to be brave, and selfless, and smart, and kind, and honest.' He clears his throat. 'I continually struggle with kindness.'" Veronica RothDivergent

"We believe in bravery. We believe in taking action. We believe in freedom from fear and in acquiring the skills to force the bad out of our world so that the good can prosper and thrive. If you also believe in those things, we welcome you." Veronica RothDivergent

"'People tend to overestimate my character,' I say quietly. 'They think that because I'm small, or a girl, or a Stiff, I can't possibly be cruel. But they're wrong.'" Veronica RothDivergent
