“I suppose a fire that burns that bright is not meant to last.”
Veronica Roth, Allegiant
“I fell in love with him. But I don't just stay with him by default as if there's no one else available to me. I stay with him because I choose to, every day that I wake up, every day that we fight or lie to each other or disappoint each other. I choose him over and over again, and he chooses me.”
Veronica Roth, Allegiant
“There are so many ways to be brave in this world. Sometimes bravery involves laying down your life for something bigger than yourself, or for someone else. Sometimes it involves giving up everything you have ever known, or everyone you have ever loved, for the sake of something greater.

But sometimes it doesn't.

Sometimes it is nothing more than gritting your teeth through pain, and the work of every day, the slow walk toward a better life.

That is the sort of bravery I must have now.”
Veronica Roth, Allegiant

Even I didn't jump first.
Her eyes were so stern, so insistent.
Beautiful.”
Veronica Roth, Allegiant

He smiles, his teeth a flash in this dark. "I like this 'nice' thing.”
Veronica Roth, Allegiant

I want to be.
I can.
I believe it.”

Veronica Roth, Allegiant
“If I don't survive," I say, "tell Tobias I didn't want to leave him.”

I raise my eyebrows.

She raises hers, too, mimicking me.

"The moments that don't suck," she says. "The trick is to notice them when they come around.”
Veronica Roth, Allegiant

“But that wasn´t the first time I ever saw her. I saw her in the hallways at school, and at my mother’s false funeral, and walking the sidewalks in the Abnegation sector. I saw her, but I didn’t see her; no one saw her the way she truly was until she jumped.
I suppose a fire that burns that bright is not meant to last.”
Veronica Roth, Allegiant
“Pride is what killed Al, and it is the flaw in every Dauntless heart. It is in mine.”

that she is gone. But when I do I feel all the strength go out of me, and I fall to my knees beside the table and I think I cry, then, or at least I want to, and everything inside me screams for just one more kiss, one more word, one more glance, one more.”
Veronica Roth, Allegiant
“His fingers slide into my hair, and I hold on to his arms to stay steady as we press together like two blades at a stalemate. He is stronger than anyone I know, and warmer than anyone else realizes; he is a secret that I have kept, and will keep for the rest of my life.”
Veronica Roth, Allegiant
