2. “Human beings cannot be categorized in this way. It doesn’t work. Maybe it’s time to start embracing people instead of dividing them into groups.”

Tris ‘Allegiant’

This is when Tris is aware of how dangerous David’s plans are and how he wants to bring the factions back. However, this quote teaches us that we have several layers and we cannot be categorized. You are not one label, you can be different things all wrapped up into one unique human being.

This is David’s response to the second previous quote said by Tris. His quote has some truth to it. For there to be a good change, several hurdles and tests come along the way. However, his perspective is a negative one, seeing as he wants everyone to be put in a box once again.

At this moment, David plans to erase everyone’s memories, which will affect Four too. Now, this quote can resemble how our actions affect others. In this case, how we treat others can also impact the way people we are close to perceive us.

5. “We’re gonna tear down our wall.”

Tris ‘Allegiant’

Finally, this is short and metaphorical. We all have walls, as individuals, there are many layers to us as people. Throughout the trilogy, society has put you in a faction catered to your most dominant traits. However, we can all be brave, smart, humble, and more. This quote is important to keep in mind in life, especially when letting people in. Tearing down walls with new individuals and also yourself can lead to new opportunities and experiences.
