While waiting for Detergent...

or whatever the last book in the Divergent trilogy by Veronica Roth will be named, here are some of my favorite quotes:


Divergent 

“Becoming fearless isn't the point. That's impossible. It's learning how to control your fear, and how to be free from it.”

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


Insurgent

“Like a wild animal, the truth is too powerful to remain caged.”

“We're all right, you know,' he says quietly. 'You and me. Okay?'
My chest aches, and I nod.
'Nothing else is all right.' His whisper tickles my cheek. 'But we are.”

“I read somewhere, once, that crying defies scientific explanation. Tears are only meant to lubricate the eyes. There is no real reason for tear glands to overproduce tears at the behest of emotion. 
I think we cry to release the animal parts of us without losing our humanity. Because inside of me is a beast that snarls, and growls, and strains toward freedom, toward Tobias, and, above all, towards life. And as hard as I try, I cannot kill it.”

“People, I have discovered, are layers and layers of secrets. You believe you know them, that you understand them, but their motives are always hidden from you, buried in their own hearts. You will never know them, but sometimes you decide to trust them.”

Starts with Goodbye


...when you're standing at a crossroad,
there's a choice you gotta make.

I guess it's gonna have to hurt, I guess I'm gonna have to cry,
and let go of some things I've loved to get to the other side,
I guess it's gonna bring me down like falling when you try to fly,
It's sad, but sometimes moving on with the rest of your life,
Starts with goodbye.

I know there's a blue horizon,
Somewhere up ahead, just waiting for me,
Getting there means leaving things behind,
Sometimes life's so bitter sweet.


I guess it's gonna have to hurt, I guess I'm gonna have to cry,
and let go of some things I've loved to get to the other side,
I guess it's gonna bring me down like falling when you try to fly,
It's sad, but sometimes moving on with the rest of your life,
Starts with goodbye

just a quote...




The most common way people give up their power
is by thinking they don't have any.
