"We had to save you because you're the mockingjay, Katniss,"
"While you live, the revolution lives."
“I did know Rue. She wasn’t just my ally, she was my friend. I see her in the flowers that grow in the meadow by my house, I hear her in mockinjays’ song, I see her in my sister, Prim. She was too young, too gentle…and I couldn’t save her. I’m sorry.”

I'M NOT LIKE THE REST OF YOU
THERE'S NO ONE LEFT I LOVE
Finnick Odair is something of a living legend in Panem. Since he won the Sixty-Fifth Hunger Games when he was only fourteen, he’s still one of the youngest victors. Being from District 4, he was a Career, so the odds were already in his favor, but what no trainer could claim to have given him was his extraordinary beauty. Tall, athletic, with golden skin and bronze-colored hair and those incredible eyes.
Josh Hutcherson being adorable as always

"There’s still time. You should sleep."
Unresisting, he lies back down, but just stares at the needle on one of the dials as it twitches from side to side. Slowly, as I would with a wounded animal, my hand stretches out and brushes a wave of hair from his forehead. He freezes at my touch, but doesn’t recoil. So I continue to gently smooth back his hair. It’s the first time I have voluntarily touched him since the last arena.
"You’re still trying to protect me. Real or not real," he whispers.
“Real,” I answer. It seems to require more explanation.
"Because that’s what you and I do. Protect each other."
After a minute or so, he drifts off to sleep.
I saw people’s reactions and some were harsh. Not to the point where I’m going to kill myself but I thought “I’m sorry I’m not your Finnick. Trust me, when I read the book, I didn’t see me as Finnick either!”
