Divergent wouldn’t be the amazing series it is without all of the support we’ve received from Initiates throughout the years. When it came time to put together the Divergent Collector’s Edition, we knew we had to include our fandom in a special way. What we ended up with (along with tons of other new content) are 8 of our favorite quotes from Divergent, illustrated by our fellow Initiates.

Without further ado, the Collector’s Edition contributors are:
Risa Rodil - risarodil
Delaney Verger - hluvsg123
Danemar Calise - pandanemar 
Shyannah Clementson - cherokeelove

Samples of their existing work are shown above, but the art in the Collector’s Edition will be brand new!

Tune in over the next few days as we feature each of these talented artists before the Divergent Collector’s Edition goes on sale on 10/21/14.

You can find more information about the Divergent Collector’s Edition here

BREAKING: Malala Yousafzai Wins Nobel Peace Prize

Malala, now 17, was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman two years ago in her home country of Pakistan after coming to prominence for her campaigning for education for girls.
She won for what the Nobel committee called her “heroic struggle” for girls’ right to an education.
She is the youngest ever winner of the prize. (x)

A new paperback edition of The Beginning of Everything by realrobynschneider is coming our way next week. To celebrate the awesomeness of this book, we decided to revisit some of our favourite quotes. (There were a lot to pick from)
 
“I realized that there’s a big difference between deciding to leave and knowing where to go.” 
 
“The world tends toward chaos, you know,” Cassidy said. “I’m just helping it along.”
 
“The way I figured it, keeping quiet was safe. Words could betray you if you choose the wrong ones, or mean less if you used too many.” 
 
“It was as though my brain was suddenly capable of considering the world with far more complexity, as though there was so much more to see and learn.”
 
“I wondered if I’d really been looking for Cassidy after all, or if I’d been hoping to find myself.”
 
“Life is the tragedy,” she said bitterly. “You know how they categorize Shakespeare’s plays, right? If it ends with a wedding, it’s a comedy. And if it ends with a funeral, it’s a tragedy. So we’re all living tragedies, because we all end the same way, and it isn’t with a goddamn wedding.” 
 
“They were filled with pictures of a world that reminded me of her, a place brimming with unknowable possibility and almost certain adventure.”
 
“We had plenty of time for youthful indecision, both apart and together, for limping into the future past the unforgettable ash heaps of our histories.”
 
“Everyone’s life, no matter how unremarkable, has a moment when it will become extraordinary - a single encounter after which everything that really matters will happen.” 
 
The Beginning of Everything by realrobynschneider is available wherever books are sold. Get a head start reading it here! 
For those who’ve already read it, what quotes would you add to this list?

The line I’m most proud of is the ash heaps one. My favorite is the one about Shakespeare’s plays. But I am probably biased.

One of my favorite views in Central Park, and it’s looked like this for 100 years. A beautiful day for my morning walk.
