I think romance is friendship and attraction sort of meeting together and that does influence what I’m writing a lot. I try to establish the attraction, obviously, but I also think it’s important to show the characters having actual conversations about things other than their feelings for each other – and to develop their friendship on the page.

Veronica Roth | dating

In my own relationships, I know that I should break up with someone who doesn’t encourage me to be strong and make my own choices and do what’s best in my life, so if you’re dating someone who doesn’t want you to be the best person you can be, you shouldn’t be dating them.

Quote from Veronica Roth, Divergent

I pull my foot back again, but Four’s hands clamp around my arms, and he pulls me away from her with irresistible force. I breathe through gritted teeth, staring at Molly’s blood-covered face, the color deep and rich and beautiful, in a way. She groans, and I hear a gurgling in her throat, watch blood trickle from her lips. “You won,” Four mutters. “Stop.” I wipe the sweat from my forehead. He stares at me. His eyes too wide; they look alarmed. “I think you should leave,” he says. “Take a walk.” I’m fine,” I say. “I’m fine now,” I say again, this time for myself.I wish I could say I felt guilty for what I did.I don’t.

Because inside me is a beast that snarls, and growls, and strains toward freedom.. and as hard as I try, I cannot kill it.

Quote from Veronica Roth, Divergent

You will be the first test subject, Tobias. Beatrice, however….” She smiles. “You are too injured to be of much use to me, so your execution will occur at the conclusion of this meeting.”I try to hide the shudder that goes through me at the word “execution,” my shoulder screaming with pain, and look up at Tobias. It’s hard to blink tears back when I see the terror in Tobias’s wide, dark eyes.”No,” says Tobias. His voice trembles, but his look stern as he shakes his head. “I would rather die.””I’m afraid you don’t have much of a choice in that matter,” replies Jeanine lightly.Tobias takes my face in this hands roughly and kisses me, the pressure of his lips pushing mine apart. I forget my pain and the terror of approaching death and for a moment, I am grateful that the memory of that kiss will be fresh in my mind as I meet my end.

What is it with you today?” says Christina on the way to breakfast. Her eyes are stillswollen from sleep and her tangled hair forms a fuzzy halo around her face.“Oh, you know,” I say. “Sun shining. Birds chirping.”She raises an eyebrow at me, as if reminding me that we are in an undergroundtunnel.

Quote from Veronica Roth, Divergent

Yeah, well,” I say, “I left Abnegation because I wasn’t selfless enough, no matter how hard I tried to be.””That’s not entirely true.” He smiles at me. “That girl who let someone throw knives at her to spare a friend, who hit my dad with a belt to protect me-that selfless girl, that’s not you?”…”You’ve been paying close attention, haven’t you?””I like to observe people/””Maybe you were cut out for Candor, Four, because you’re a terrible liar.

I regret…” Tobias tilts his head, and sighs. “I regret my choice.””What Choice?”, and… I felt like maybe I could make something more of my decision.”
