Have you read "Divergent" yet? It is the first book in a series of three dystopian novels that takes place in futuristic Chicago.
I couldn't put the books down. It was such a good series, and I am looking forward to watching the first movie in the series in theaters this March.
There was one quote in the book that I really loved. It was said by Four, a tough guy who is as brave as they get. Bravery is a quality cherished most by the Dauntless faction, and as a leader of Dauntless, Four's bravery is never questioned. The Erudite faction seeks knowledge above all else. The Abnegation faction prizes selflessness. Amity seeks peace and kindness, while Candor holds honesty in the highest esteem.
Each faction prizes one characteristic above the others. There is quite a rift between the ideals of each faction, and it is extremely rare that anyone questions those ideals.
But, Four says this:
"I want to be brave, and selfless, and smart, and kind, and honest."
He didn't want to just adhere to the ideals of his own faction, he thought being all of those things were important.
I want to be all of those things. And I want my girls to be them, as well. So, as a little reminder, I made a printable that I can hang on their bedroom wall (in the gallery wall I have planned for the new bedroom design). I also made the printable in a couple of different colors, too. They would be great hung in a nursery, kid's room, or playroom.
To download, right click on the printable and save to your computer. Then print on cardstock. Staples also has a lot of different papers to choose from, including some with a little shimmer that would be great for printables.
