Faction Manifesto

Abnegation: The Selfless
I will be my undoing If I become my obsession.

I will forget the ones I love If I do not serve them.

I will war with others If I refuse to see them.

Therefore I choose to turn away From my reflection, To rely not on myself But on my brothers and sisters, To project always outward Until I disappear.

Some members add a final line: “And only God remains.” That is at the discretion of each member and is not compulsory.

{The First 100 Pages, and the DIVERGENT Dictionary}

“Abnegation… includes five of the traditional “seven heavenly virtues:” chastity, temperance, charity, patience, and humility.
