Divergent Chasm quotes by Anthony De Mello
#1. Take the leap! You cannot cross a chasm in little jumps. #Quote by Anthony De Mello
Divergent Chasm quotes by Sheila Turner Johnston
#2. People think loneliness is absence. It isn't. It's a filling up, a rising, spilling tide that crashes into every gully and chasm of your mind and soul until you're choked with emptiness, awash with desolation, thrashing in the foam of it, reaching for a hand to hold and yet finding no hand, no refuge, no comfort. #Quote by Sheila Turner Johnston
Divergent Chasm quotes by Henry R. Towne
#3. A railroad may have to be carried over a gorge or arroya. Obviously it does not need an Engineer to point out that this may be done by filling the chasm with earth, but only a Bridge Engineer is competent to determine whether it is cheaper to do this or to bridge it, and to design the bridge which will safely and most cheaply serve. #Quote by Henry R. Towne
Divergent Chasm quotes by Henri Cartier-Bresson
#4. The intensive use of photographs by mass media lays ever fresh responsibilities upon the photographer. We have to acknowledge the existence of a chasm between the economic needs of our consumer society and the requirements of those who bear witness to this epoch. This affects us all, particularly the younger generations of photographers. We must take greater care than ever not to allow ourselves to be separated from the real world and from humanity. #Quote by Henri Cartier-Bresson
Divergent Chasm quotes by Wildbow
#5. Not all journeys have destinations. Power is the ability to effect change, and people who create change ride that tide, with far-reaching effects. For some of us, that's something we're born into. Our fathers or mothers instill us with a hunger for it from a very early point in time. We're raised on it, always striving to be the top, in academics, in sports, in our careers. Then we either run into a dead-end, or we face diminishing returns."

"Less and less results for the same amount of effort," Grue said.

"Others of us are born with nothing. It is hard to get something when you don't have anything. You can't make money until you have money. The same applies to contacts, to success, to status. It's a chasm, and where you start is often very close to where you finish. The vast majority never even move from where they began. Of the few that do make it, many are so exhausted by the time they meet some success that they stop there. And others, a very small few, they make that drive for success, that need to climb becomes a part of themselves. They keep climbing, and when someone like Accord recognizes them and offers them another road to climb, they accept without reservation. #Quote by Wildbow
Divergent Chasm quotes by Ingmar Bergman
#6. Don't you think I understand? The hopeless dream of being. Not seeming, but being. Conscious at every moment. Vigilant. At the same time, the chasm between what you are to others and to yourself. The feeling of vertigo and the constant desire to at last be exposed - to be seen through, cut down, perhaps even annihilated. Every tone of voice is a lie, every gesture a falsehood, every smile a grimace. Commit suicide? Oh, no. That's ugly. You don't do that. But you can be immobile. You can fall silent. Then, at least, you don't lie. You can close yourself in, shut yourself off. Then you don't have to play roles, show any faces, or make false gestures. You think…but you see, reality is bloody-minded. Your hideout isn't watertight. Life seeps in everything. You're forced to react. No one asks if it's real or unreal, if you're true or false. It's only in the theater the question carries weight - hardly even, there. I understand you, Elisabet. I understand your keeping silent, your immobility. That you've placed this lack of will into a fantastic system... I understand and I admire you. I think you should maintain this role until it's played out, until it's not longer interesting. Then you can leave it, just as you bit-by-bit leave all your roles. #Quote by Ingmar Bergman
Divergent Chasm quotes by Veronica Roth
#7. Tell him I didn't want to leave him #Quote by Veronica Roth
Divergent Chasm quotes by Rebecca Solnit
#8. Rape and other acts of violence, up to and including murder, as well as threats of violence, constitute the barrage some men lay down as they attempt to control some women, and fear of that violence limits most women in ways they've gotten so used to they hardly notice–and we hardly address. There are exceptions: last summer someone wrote to me to describe a college class in which the students were asked what they do to stay safe from rape. The young women described the intricate ways they stayed alert, limited their access to the world, took precautions, and essentially thought about rape all the time (while the young men in the class, he added, gaped in astonishment). The chasm between their worlds had briefly and suddenly become visible. #Quote by Rebecca Solnit
Divergent Chasm quotes by Veronica Roth
#9. They're damaged, after all. #Quote by Veronica Roth
Divergent Chasm quotes by Hank Hanegraaff
#10. Faith in Christ is not some blind leap into a dark chasm, but a faith based on established evidence. #Quote by Hank Hanegraaff
Divergent Chasm quotes by Matthew Sturges
#11. You are not what you intend, you are what you do. Intention and action are separated by a chasm #Quote by Matthew Sturges
Divergent Chasm quotes by Veronica Roth
#12. I don't have an answer to that, and I don't even know if he's right about me. Am I wired like the Abnegation, or the Dauntless? Maybe the answer is neither. Maybe I am wired like the Divergent. #Quote by Veronica Roth
Divergent Chasm quotes by Veronica Roth
#13. Trust me when I tell you, Eaton boy, that resisting is worth doing. #Quote by Veronica Roth
Divergent Chasm quotes by Veronica Roth
#14. He turns toward me. I want to touch him, but I'm afraid of his bareness; afraid that he will make me bare too.
'Is this scaring you, Tris?'
'No,' I croak. I clear my throat. 'Not really. I'm only…afraid of what I want.'
'What do you want?' Then his face tightens. 'Me?'
Slowly I nod. #Quote by Veronica Roth
Divergent Chasm quotes by Veronica Roth
#15. You look different." His words, normally crisp,are now sluggish.
"So do you," I say.And he does-he looks more relaxed,younger. "What are you doing?"
"Flirting with death," he replies with a laugh. "Drinking near the chasm. Probably not a good idea."
"No,it isn't" I'm not sure I like Four this way.There's something unsettling about it.
"Didn't know you had a tattoo," he says, looking at my collarbone.
He sips the bottle. His breath smells thick and sharp.Like the factionless man's breath.
"Right.The crows," he says. He glances over his shoulder at his friends, who are carrying on without him, unlike mine. He adds, "I'd ask you hang out with us, but you're not supposed to see me this way."
I am tempted to ask him why he wants to hang out with him,but I suspect the answer has something to do with the bottle in his hand.
"What way?" I ask. "Drunk?
"Yeah...well,no." His voice softens. "Real,I guess."
"I'll pretend I didn't."
"Nice of you." He puts his lips next to my ear and says, "You look good, Tris."
His words surprise me,and my heart leaps. I wish it didn't,because judging by the way his eyes slide over mine, he has no idea what he's saying. I laugh. "Do me a favor and stay away from the chasm,okay?"
"Of course." He winks at me.
I can't help it.I smile.Will clears his throat,but I don't want to turn away from Four,even when he walks back to his friends.
Then Al rushes at me like a rolling boulder and th #Quote by Veronica Roth
Divergent Chasm quotes by Veronica Roth
#16. Dead people can be our heroes because they cant disappoint us later; they only improve over time, as we forget more and more about them. #Quote by Veronica Roth
Divergent Chasm quotes by Casey McQuiston
#17. So, imagine we're all born with a set of feelings. Some are broader or deeper than others, but for everyone, there's that ground floor, a bottom crust of the pie. That's the maximum depth of feeling you've ever experienced. And then, the worst thing happens to you. The very worst thing that could have happened. The thing you had nightmares about as a child, and you thought, it's all right because that thing will happen to me when I'm older and wiser, and I'll have felt so many feelings by then that this one worst feeling, the worst possible feeling, won't seem so terrible.

"But it happens to you when you're young. It happens when your brain isn't even fully done cooking - when you've barely experienced anything, really. The worst thing is one of the first big things that ever happens to you in your life. It happens to you, and it goes all the way down to the bottom of what you know how to feel, and it rips it open and carves out this chasm down below to make room. And because you were so young, and because it was one of the first big things to happen in your life, you'll always carry it inside you. Every time something terrible happens to you from then on, it doesn't just stop at the bottom - it goes all the way down. #Quote by Casey McQuiston
Divergent Chasm quotes by Stephen Batchelor
#18. Ironically, the more we crave to possess and dominate the world and others, the deeper and more unbearable becomes the chasm of our own emptiness. #Quote by Stephen Batchelor
Divergent Chasm quotes by William Lindsay Gresham
#19. Man comes into the world a blind, groping mite. He knows hunger and the fear of noise and of falling. His life is spent in flight - flight from hunger and from the thunderbolt of destiny. From his moment of birth he begins to fall through the whistling air of Time: down, down into a chasm of darkness . . . we come like a breath of wind over the fields of morning. We go like a lamp flame caught by a blast from a darkened window. In between we journey from table to table, from battle to bottle, from bed to bed. We suck, we chew, we swallow, we lick, we try to mash life into us like an am-am-amoeba God damn it! Somebody lets us loose like a toad out of a matchbox and we jump and jump and jump and the guy always behind us, and when he gets tired he stomps us to death and our guts squirt out on each side of the boot of All Merciful Providence. The son-of-a-bitch! #Quote by William Lindsay Gresham
Divergent Chasm quotes by Kevin Fedarko
#20. And Petschek had asked - because he was genuinely puzzled by this - why so many people, Americans especially, seemed to feel that happiness was an entitlement. By dint of his own experiences as a refugee and a wanderer, Petschek found the notion to be strangely naive and immature - especially here at the bottom of a chasm whose ramparts offered such irrefutable testimony not only to the smallness of human affairs but also to the universe's implacable indifference to those hopes and longings. Yet #Quote by Kevin Fedarko
Divergent Chasm quotes by Judith McNaught
#21. I'll wait for you at the cottage until noon tomorrow."
"I won't be there."
"I'll wait until noon," he insisted.
"You will be wasting your time. Let go of me, please. This has all been a mistake!"
"Then we may as well make two of them," he said harshly, and his arm abruptly tightened, bringing her closer to his body. "Look at me, Elizabeth," he whispered, and his warm breath stirred the hair at her temple.
Warning bells screamed through her, belated but loud. If she lifted her head, he was going to kiss her. "I do not want you to kiss me," she warned him, but it wasn't completely true.
"Then say good-bye to me now."
Elizabeth lifted her head, dragging her eyes past his finely sculpted mouth to meet his gaze. "Good-bye," she told him, amazed that her voice didn't shake.
His eyes moved down her face as if he were memorizing it, then they fixed on her lips. His hands slid down her arms and abruptly released her as he stepped back. "Good-bye, Elizabeth."
Elizabeth turned and took a step, but the regret in his deep voice made her turn back…or perhaps it had been her own heart that had twisted as if she was leaving something behind-something she'd regret. Separated by less than two feet physically and a chasm socially, they looked at each other in silence. "They've probably noticed our absence," she said lamely, and she wasn't certain whether she was making excuses for leaving him there or hoping he'd convince her to remain.

Divergent Chasm quotes by Evan Daugherty
#23. After 'Divergent,' I got a job rewriting a sci-fi script at Paramount. I think they really liked what I did, so I got a call saying, 'We're about to shoot 'Ninja Turtles' in three or four months; do you wanna come in and do a little work on the script?' That was the beginning of a many-month 'Ninja Turtle' odyssey. #Quote by Evan Daugherty
Divergent Chasm quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#24. The world just changed, Gaz," Kaladin said, leaning in close. "I died down at that chasm. Now you've got my vengeful spirit to deal with. #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
Divergent Chasm quotes by Veronica Roth
#25. Every tattoo I got with them is a mark of their friendship, and almost every time I have laughed in this dark place was because of them. I don't want to lose them. But I feel like I have already. #Quote by Veronica Roth
Divergent Chasm quotes by Marie Lu
#26. I am numb. I don't know what to do. The absence of my link to Enzo is a yawning chasm, a hollowness I first felt when Teren took Enzo's life in the Estenzian arena. How long had he been a part of my world? How had my life been before he stepped into it? All I can think is that I am losing him all over again, except that I already lost him. #Quote by Marie Lu
Divergent Chasm quotes by Veronica Roth
#27. Human reason can excuse any evil; that is why it's so important that we don't rely on it. #Quote by Veronica Roth
Divergent Chasm quotes by Thomas Mann
#28. He sat there, the master, the artist who had achieved his dignity, the author of "A Wretched Man," who, employing a form of exemplary purity, had renounced bohemianism and the dismal chasm, had broken with the abyss and reviled all vileness. He had risen high, transcending his knowledge and outgrowing all irony, he had adjusted his responsibilities toward the public and its trust in him-he, whose fame was official, whose name was ennobled, and whose style was a model for schoolboys. #Quote by Thomas Mann
Divergent Chasm quotes by Jodi Picoult
#29. I walk towards the car but on second thought step back to the railing for a final look. Enormous. Anonymous. I could hurtle myself down the walls of this chasm, and never be found. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Divergent Chasm quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien
#30. Frodo gave a cry, and there was, fallen upon his knees at the chasm's edge. But Gollum, dancing like a mad thing, held aloft the ring, a finger still thrust within its circle.
"Precious, precious, precious!" Gollum cried. "My Precious! O my Precious!" And with that, even as his eyes were lifted up to gloat on his prize, he stepped too far, toppled, wavered for a moment on the brink, and then with a shriek he fell. Out of the depths came his last wail precious, and he was gone. #Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien
Divergent Chasm quotes by Holly Black
#31. I miss him, and the pain of it is a yawning chasm, one into which I yearn to let myself fall. #Quote by Holly Black
Divergent Chasm quotes by Veronica Roth
#32. I'll only go if there's cake.

~Tobias "Four #Quote by Veronica Roth
Divergent Chasm quotes by Neil Gaiman
#33. The juggler seemed worried. "Throw it a book," he said.

I threw it a book, and it tore into it, like a cat ripping a small animal apart; and while the creature ate its book the juggler pushed the door open. He nearly fell into a deep chasm on the other side. "Not a disaster," he said, as if he was trying to convince himself. "We need more books. Big books."

It didn't seem like a good time for reading, but I pulled two huge old books off the shelf in the corner and carried them over to him. He took one, but didn't read it. He told it what a bad book it was and threw it on the ground. The book bounced in the air and hung there quivering, and the juggler man jumped onto it and began to float away. "As long as they think you don't like them," said the juggler, "they migrate back to the library. And we get a free ride."

I rode next to him on my book, and we crossed the chasm safely. The books floated away and I waved them good-bye. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Divergent Chasm quotes by Veronica Roth
#34. The ability to think isn't exclusive to erudite #Quote by Veronica Roth
Divergent Chasm quotes by Charles R. Erdman
#35. This is therefore a time, not for unkindly criticism of fellow Christians, but for friendly conference; not for disputing over divergent views, but for united action; not for dogmatic assertion of prophetic programs, but for the humble acknowledgment that "we know in part;" not for idle dreaming, but for the immediate task of evangelizing a lost world. For such effort, no one truth is more inspiring, than that of the return of Christ. None other can make us sit more lightly by the things of time, none other is more familiar as a Scriptural motive to purity, holiness, patience, vigilance, love. #Quote by Charles R. Erdman
Divergent Chasm quotes by Veronica Roth
#36. But I know that for every good thing that comes along, there is always a cost. #Quote by Veronica Roth
Divergent Chasm quotes by Glenn Beck
#37. There is also a trilogy of books out. I started reading right after Christmas Divergent. I went to read Insurgent after, and now I'm on the third one. I don't know, it's Detergent or whatever. But it's written by a 26-year-old girl. It's brilliant. But I'm about halfway through now on book number three. Wait until you get to book number three. Hello, Google genome project.

Technology is advancing at a rapid pace, and yet, morality and ethics are afterthoughts. We're excited about discovery and advancement, you know? We're in fact so excited that we don't even take the time to discuss or debate the moral dilemmas and implications of new technology. Sure, we're still in control of technology now, but does there come a time when we're not? Who will be the one that says turn it off? When do things go wrong?

I don't see anyone at Google or in the government or anyone at the forefront of technology boom that is contemplating the ethics and morality issues. Now that is a truly scary thought that doesn't come in a movie. #Quote by Glenn Beck
Divergent Chasm quotes by Georges Perec
#38. Sometimes Valène dreamt of cataclysms and tempests, of whirlwinds that would carry the whole house off like a wisp of straw and display the infinite marvels of the solar system to its shipwrecked inhabitants; or that an unseen crack would run through the building from top to bottom, like a shiver, and with a long, deep, snapping sound it would open in two and be slowly swallowed up in an indescribable yawning chasm; then hordes would overrun it, bleary-eyed monsters, giant insects with steel mandibles, blind termites, great white worms with insatiable mouths: the wood would crumble, the stone would turn to sand, the cupboards would collapse under their own weight, all would return to dust. But no. Only these shabby squabbles over buckets and tubs, over matches and sinks. And behind that ever-closed door the morbid gloom of that slow revenge, that ponderous business of two senile monomaniacs churning over their feigned histories and their wretched traps and snares. #Quote by Georges Perec
Divergent Chasm quotes by Sarah Schulman
#39. I have come to understand that the same action of unjustified escalation most often comes from one of two positions: Supremacy, or Trauma. And in realizing this, I am surprised by the similar behaviors expressed by these two divergent experiences. #Quote by Sarah Schulman
Divergent Chasm quotes by Chris Bohjalian
#40. Now, the separation between depression and suicide is more crevasse than chasm. #Quote by Chris Bohjalian
Divergent Chasm quotes by Mary Church Terrell
#41. Surely nowhere in the world do oppression and persecution based solely on the color of the skin appear more hateful and hideous than in the capital of the United States, because the chasm between the principles upon which this Government was founded, in which it still professes to believe, and those which are daily practiced under the protection of the flag, yawn so wide and deep. #Quote by Mary Church Terrell
Divergent Chasm quotes by Veronica Roth
#42. It is more important for you to be safe than right, for the time being. Understand? ( ... ) But please, when you see an opportunity ... ruin them #Quote by Veronica Roth

#43. I am. selfish. I am brave. I am
Divergent. #Quote by Veronica Roth
Divergent Chasm quotes by Chris Howard
#44. Cloud computing is actually a spectrum of things complementing one another and building on a foundation of sharing. Inherent dualities in the cloud computing phenomenon are spawning divergent strategies for cloud computing success. The public cloud, hybrid clouds, and private clouds now dot the landscape of IT based solutions. Because of that, the basic issues have moved from 'what is cloud' to 'how will cloud projects evolve'. #Quote by Chris Howard
