The problems are neither subtle nor cognitively challenging), yet when faced with the emotionally daunting task of fashioning a response to these clear and clearly insoluble problems, we generally suffer a failure of nerve and imagination.

I continue to write letters to the editor pointing out untruths, and continue to be surprised each time the newspaper publishes its next absurdity. At least I've stopped writing to politicians."

The girls younger than I who would ask for a living wage, whose working conditions are so deplorable they were locked in a burning factory? they could make use of your precious help."She holds her head high. "We would have done so. In time."I snort in disgust. "It is daunting to be a woman in any world. What good does our power do us when it must be kept secret?""You would prefer bold voices to illusion?""Yes."

20. "Librarians are serious people, seldomgiven to idle jocularity. The reason for this, I believe, is because we are overwhelmed by the enormous number of good books waiting to be read, leaving little time for frivolity.

It's unsettling to not know the future and, in a way, even more daunting to consider that what we are doing with our twentysomething lives might be determining it."

27. "Great works of art in all cultures succeed in capturing within the constraints of their form both the pathos of anguish and a vision of its resolution. Take, for example, the languorous sentences of Proust or the haiku of Basho, the late quartets and sonatas of Beethoven, the tragicomic brushwork of Sengai or the daunting canvases of Rothko, the luminous self-portraits of Rembrandt and Hakuin. Such works achieve their resolution not through consoling or romantic images whereby anguish is transcended. They accept anguish without being overwhelmed by it. They reveal anguish as that which gives beauty its dignity and depth."

You got the feeling over time and then again that he didn't want to win, when he sparred with you. That was the motivation you needed. The opportunity presented itself; his weakness presented itself. You took it, you beat him, you got better, you stayed neck and neck. Just stay strong, was the first directive. Get stronger, was the next. Don't die, was the final, and that is where you remain. Daunting, to excel at a game that you must eventually lose. Unless you really are an angel. Unless he really is already a ghost."
Author: Vee Hoffman

Author: Veronica Roth

Author: Veronica Roth
34. "Just after my mother died, I grabbed hold of my Divergence like it was a hand outstretched to save me. I needed that word to tell me who I was when everything else was coming apart around me.

He's . . . obsessive, explosive, insecure . . .""Obsessive?""What else do you call someone who repeatedly goes through his own fear landscape?""I don't know . . . determined." I pause. "Brave.""Yeah, sure. But also a little bit crazy, right? I mean, most Dauntless would rather leap into the chasm than keep going through their fear landscapes. There's bravery and then there's masochism, and the line got a little hazy with him."
Author: Veronica Roth

I stand alone in the blue light coming from the lamp above me, and I understand: She has been to the compound before. She remembered this hallways. She knows about the initiation process. My mother was a dauntless."
Author: Veronica Roth
41. "And don't pay attention to Christina. Your face doesn't look that bad." He smiles a little. "I mean, it looks good. It always looks good. i mean--you look brave. Dauntless." His eyes skirt mine, and he scratches the back of his head. The silence grows between us. It was a nice thing to say, but he acts like it means more than just words. I hope I am wrong. I could not be attracted to Al-- I could not be attracted to anyone that fragile. I smile as much as my bruised cheek will allow, hoping that will diffuse the tension."

Author: Veronica Roth

Author: Veronica Roth
44. "People make me key chains... someone attached a Dauntless symbol to a silver pen. That one is what I use to sign books. I use that a lot.

Author: Veronica Roth

Author: William Makepeace Thackeray
49. "Think you a little din can daunt mine ears?Have I not in my time heard lions roar?Have I not heard the sea, puffed up with winds,Rage like an angry boar chafed with sweat?Have I not heard great ordinance in the field,And Heaven's artillery thunder in the skies?Have I not in a pitched battle heardLoud 'larums, neighing steeds, and trumpets' clang?And do you tell me of a woman's tongue, That gives not half so great a blow to hearAs will a chestnut in a farmer's fire?Tush! tush! fear boys with bugs.Grumio: For he fears none."
Author: William Shakespeare
50. "Bagiku, hujan menyimpan senandung liar yang membisikan 1001 kisah.Tiap tetesnya yang merdu berbisik lembut, menyuarakan nyanyian alam yang membuatku rindu mengendus bau tanah basah.Bulir-bulir yang jatuh menapak diatas daun, mengalir lurus menyisakan sebaris air di dedaunan.Sejuk, mirip embun.Hidup seperti ini.Aku bisa merasakan senja yang bercampur bau tanah basah sepeninggal hujan.Seperti kanvas putih yang tersapu warna-warna homogen indah.Dentingan sisa-sisa titik hujan di atas atap terasa seperti seruling alam yang bisa membuatku memejamkan mata.Melodi hidup, aku menyebutnya seperti itu.Saat semua ketenangan bisa kudapatkan tanpa harus memikirkan apa pun."
