"One choice can destroy your future."
This book is written in 1st person in Tris's point of view.
The theme in this novel is to not try to get more than you already have. When Jeanine Matthews tried to conquer everywhere she ended up being killed.
We all have a little natural greediness in ourselves, but you get what you can and if you try to get more, most of the time you will have bad consequences. I'm not saying you will get murdered like Jeanine Matthews, but small consequences. An example is if you have money but you want more and you steal it, there are consequences. The consequence there would be that you would go to jail. A way to apply it to your life, is imagine the other person when they have nothing and you have twice as much as you are supposed to. That can sometimes subside the greediness.
