We believe in ordinary acts of bravery, in the courage that drives one person to stand up for another.
Fear doesn't shut you down; it wakes you up
Becoming fearless isn't the point. That's impossible. It's learning how to control your fear, and how to be free from it.
I feel like someone breathed new air into my lungs. I am not Abnegation. I am not Dauntless. I am Divergent.

In the difficult are the friendly forces, the hands
that work on us.
