"The building that was once called the Sears Tower-we call it the Hub-emerges from the fog, a black pillar in the skyline“ page 3 "Tori was the only one in the tattoo place, so I felt safe getting the symbol of Abnegation-a pair of hands, palms up as if to help someone stand, bounded by a circle- on my right shoulder. I know it was a risk, especially after all that's happened. But that symbol is a part of my identity, and it felt important to me that I wear it on my skin“ page 316 " ' Pit' is the best word for it. It is an underground cavern so huge I can't see the other end of it from where I stand, at the bottom. Uneven rock walls rise several stories above my head. Built into the stone walls are places for food, clothing, supplies, leisure activities. Narrow paths and steps carved from rock connect them. There are no barriers to keep people from falling over the side“ page 63 " 'The mass exodus of the children of Abnegation leaders cannot be ignored or attributed to coincidence' he reads. 'The recent transfer of Beatrice and Caleb Prior, the children of Andrew prior, calls into question the soundness of Abnegation's values and teachings.' “page 242
