""I have something to tell you," he says.
I run my fingers along the tendons in his hand and look back at him
"I might be in love with you." He smiles a little. "I'm waiting until I'm sure to tell you, though."
"That's sensible of you," I say, smiling too. "We should find you some paper so you can make a list or a chart or something."
I feel his laughter against my side, his nose sliding along my jaw, his lips pressing behind my ear.
"Maybe I'm already sure," he says, "and I just don't want to frighten you."
"I laugh a little. "Then you should know better."
"Fine," he says. "Then I love you."" - Divergent

""Get it off! Get it off get it off get it off!" she screams.
The moth flutters away.
"It's gone!" I say. Then I laugh. "You're afraid of moths?"
"They're disgusting. Those papery wings and stupid bug bodies . . . " She shudders.
I keep laughing. I laugh so hard I have to sit down and hold my stomach.
"It's not funny!" she snaps. "Well . . . okay, maybe it is. A little."" - Divergent

'"What floor?' the girl with the shaved head asks.
"One hundred." I say.
"How would you know that?"
"Lynn, come on," says Uriah. "Be nice"
"We're in a one-hundred-story building with some Dauntless," I retort. "Why don't you know that?"' - Divergent

"No. I guess it was because . . . I think it's important to protect people. To stand up for people. Like you did for me. That's what the Dauntless are supposed to do, right? That's what courage is, not . . . hurting people for no reason." - Al

'"I think the Stiff's taken too many hits to the head!" remarks Peter, a few people down. "Hey, Stiff! Remember what a knife is?"
Ignoring him, I practice the throw again with a knife in hand, but don't release it. I shut out Eric's pacing, and Peter's jeering, and the nagging feeling Four is staring at me, and I throw the knife. It spins end over end, slamming into the board. The blade doesn't stick, but I'm the first person to hit the target.
I smirk as Peter misses again. I can't help myself.
"Hey, Peter," I say. Remember what a target is?"" - Divergent

""Statistically speaking," the Erudite boy next to me - his name is Will - says, grinning at me, "you should have hit the target at least once by now, even by accident." He is blond, with shaggy hair and a crease between his eyebrows.
"Is that so," I say without inflection.
"Yeah," he says. "I think you're actually defying nature."" - Divergent

""You've never had a hamburger before?" asks Christina, her eyes wide.
"No," I say. "Is that what it's called?"
"Stiffs eat plain food," Four says, nodding at Christina.
"Why?" she asks.
I shrug. "Extravagance is considered self-indulgent and unnecessary."
She smirks. "No wonder you left."
"Yeah," I say, rolling my eyes. "It was just because of the food."" - Divergent
