Gale gave me a sense of security I’d lacked since my father’s death. […] But he turned into so much more than a hunting partner. He became my confidant, someone with whom I could share thoughts I could never voice inside the fence. In exchange, he trusted me with his. Being out in the woods with Gale… sometimes I was actually happy.
"A very, very strong woman named Tris Prior, who was not born a superhero. She was not born with innate superhuman powers. Through the evolution of the movie you get to watch her grow, and you get to watch her find her own confidence, which in turn brings her bravery. In my opinion I think, you know, you can be brave and jump off trains, but the truest form of bravery and courage is to wake up every single day and to be ourselves, and that’s something that Tris does. That is something all of us have the opportunity and choice to make each and every morning." - Shailene Woodley
No, Dad, I do not want cocoa. Honestly, I’m 17 years old. Okay. I just thought I remembered somebody saying last week that her fantasy was to live in a chocolate house. Well, that’s impractical. And fattening.
Please don’t tell girls “The boy who’s picking on you actually just likes you”
Even if it’s true, you shouldn’t teach girls to respect that sort of affection.
And you should definitely not teach boys that expressing their attraction to women through violence and disrespect is ok.

history meme | one war ∙ the cold war (1947-1991)
The Cold War, a 45-year conflict, was a sustained state of political and military tension between powers in the Western Bloc, dominated by the United States with NATO among its allies, and powers in the Eastern Bloc, dominated by the Soviet Union along with the Warsaw Pact. This began after the success of their temporary wartime alliance against Nazi Germany, leaving the USSR and the US as two superpowers with profound economic and political differences. The Cold War was so named because the two major powers—each possessing nuclear weapons and thereby threatened with mutual assured destruction—never met in direct military combat. Instead, in their struggle for global influence they engaged in ongoing psychological warfare and in regular indirect confrontations through proxy wars. Cycles of relative calm would be followed by high tension, which could have led to world war. In 1989, pressures for national independence grew stronger in Eastern Europe and, within weeks, all the satellite states broke free from Moscow in a peaceful wave of revolutions. The end of the Cold War culminated in the fall of communism and dissolution of the USSR in 1991. [x]
