Allegiant (Divergent#3) by Veronica Roth

17383918Favourite quotes:

1. When you kill someone you love, the hard part is never over. It just gets easier to distract yourself from what you’ve done.

2. “She said that everyone has some evil inside them, and the first step to loving anyone is to recognize the same evil in ourselves, so we’re able to forgive them.”

3. There are so many way 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.

4. Since I was young, I have always known this: Life damages us, every one. We can’t escape that damage.

But now, I am also learning this: We can be mended. We mend each other.

Speechless by Hannah Harrington

13069681Favourite quotes:

1. You can be surrounded by people and still be lonely. You can be the most popular person in school, envied by every girl and wanted by every boy, and still feel completely worthless. The world can be laid at your feet and you can still not know what you want from it.

2. Maybe when it comes down to it, what we’re interested in doesn’t mean so much–it’s who you are that ties people together.

3. “Hate is…it’s too easy,” he says. His face is calm, calmer than it has any right to be, his eyes not wavering from mine, like he’s so completely sure of what he’s saying. “Love. Love takes courage.”

4. I’m hit with a sudden wave of sadness. But it’s a distant kind of sad–like when you look at your Barbies and realize you don’t want to play with them anymore, because you’re growing up and you’ve moved on, and in your heart you know it’s time to make room for other things.
