“It’s getting more difficult to be wise,” he says, laughing into my ear. I smile at him. “I think that’s how it’s supposed to be.”

“—I wonder if fears ever really go away, or if they just lose their power over us.”

“If they told us what to believe, and we didn’t come to it on our own, is it still true?”

“And as I stare out at the land, I think that this, if nothing else, is compelling evidence for my parents’ God, that our world is so massive that it is completely out of our control, that we cannot possibly be as large as we feel. So small as to be negligible.”

“so what difference does that make, meaning or not meaning to do something? Accident or on purpose, the result is the same,”

“Knowledge is power. Power to do evil, like Jeanine . . . or power to do good, like what we’re doing. Power itself is not evil. So knowledge itself is not evil.”

“I think of being too tired to fight with him anymore, or to hear his excuses; too tired to care that my brother had abandoned me.”

“Sometimes I feel like there is so much to be afraid of, and sometimes I feel like there is nothing left to fear.”

“No one likes to be told there’s something wrong with them,”

“But I think that no matter how smart, people usually see what they’re already looking for, that’s all.”

“You don’t believe things because they make your life better, you believe them because they’re true,” one of my personal favorites

“I am not all right. I was beginning to feel that I had finally found a place to stay, a place that was not so unstable or corrupt or controlling that I could actually belong there. You would think that I would have learned by now—such a place does not exist.”

“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.”

“It seems fitting that the blow would leave a mark on both of us. That’s how the world works.”

“You know what the Abnegation used to say about pride?”
“Something unfavorable, I assume.” I laugh. “Obviously. They said it blinds people to the truth of what they are.”

“I’m not sure when, or if, anything will ever get better, not sure if these wounds are the kind that can heal.”

“If someone offers you an opportunity to get closer to your enemy, you always take it. I know that without having learned it from anyone.”

“It’s just the same thing all over again, isn’t it? You don’t respect me as much as you say you do. When it comes down to it, you still believe I can’t think rationally”

“but grief leaves its mark on his expression, taking the crinkles out of the corners of his eyes when he smiles,”

“I used to think that when people fell in love, they just landed where they landed, and they had no choice in the matter afterward. And maybe that’s true of beginnings, but it’s not true of this, now. 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.”

“It’s strange how time can make a place shrink, make its strangeness ordinary.”

“It’s not a perfect situation. But when you have to choose between two bad options, you pick the one that saves the people you love and believe in most. You just do. Okay?”

“You just do it, and the next day you do it again.”

“To me, when someone wrongs you, you both share the burden of that wrongdoing—the pain of it weighs on both of you. Forgiveness, then, means choosing to bear the full weight all by yourself.”favorite

“Some days are harder than others, but I am ready to live each one of them. I can’t sacrifice myself, this time.”

“They say that if the sacrifice is the ultimate way for that person to show you that they love you, you should let them do it.” He leans one shoulder into the wall. “That, in that situation, it’s the greatest gift you can give them. Just as it was when both of your parents died for you.”

“And I know, without being told, that’s what love does, when it’s right—it makes you more than you were, more than you thought you could be. This is right.”

“I think that had something to do with it, or maybe nothing did, maybe people just do things like that out of nowhere, and trying to find a reason just frustrates the mind.”

“Sometimes, all it takes to save people from a terrible fate is one person willing to do something about it. Even if that “something” is a fake bathroom break.”

“Or maybe forgiveness is just the continual pushing aside of bitter memories, until time dulls the hurt and the anger, and the wrong is forgotten.”

“I belong to the people I love, and they belong to me—they, and the love and loyalty I give them, form my identity far more than any word or group ever could.”

“I know that change is difficult, and comes slowly, and that it is the work of many days strung together in a long line until the origin of them is forgotten. He is afraid that he will not be able to put in that work, that he will squander those days, and that they will leave him worse off than he is now. And I understand that feeling—I understand being afraid of yourself.”

“To me, grief is a devastating numbness, every sensation dulled.”

“Maybe just as skin on a hand grows tougher after pain in repetition, a person does too. But I don’t want to become a calloused man.”

“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.”

“I asked her what purpose it served, and she told me, It doesn’t do anything obvious. But it might be able to do something in here. Then she touched her hand to her heart. Beautiful things sometimes do.”

“Yeah, sometimes life really sucks,” she says. “But you know what I’m holding on for?” 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.”

“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.”

*sob

“They’ll care for each other,” she says. “That’s what people do.”

“Can I be forgiven for all I’ve done to get here? I want to be. I can. I believe it.”
