"And I love that Finn’s declaration of love involves touch. As someone with intense body image issues and a desperation for physical attention, let me just assure you that there are few things more powerful than someone expressing a desire to touch you. What Finn does for Rae is equal parts erotic and emotionally devastating because he chose to touch her. I can’t. I CAN’T.”- Mark Watches

The bird, the pin, the song, the berries, the watch, the cracker, the dress that burst into flames. I am the mockingjay. The one that survived despite the Capitol’s plans. The symbol of the rebellion.

Agora (2009) - You don’t question what you believe, or cannot. I must.
There was a woman at Alexandria named Hypatia, daughter of the philosopher Theon, who made such attainments in literature and science, as to far surpass all the philosophers of her own time. Having succeeded to the school of Plato and Plotinus, she explained the principles of philosophy to her auditors, many of whom came from a distance to receive her instructions. On account of the self-possession and ease of manner, which she had acquired in consequence of the cultivation of her mind, she not unfrequently appeared in public in presence of the magistrates. Neither did she feel abashed in going to an assembly of men. For all men on account of her extraordinary dignity and virtue admired her the more. Yet even she fell victim to the political jealousy which at that time prevailed. - Socrates Scholasticus

My father is, uh… he’s schizophrenic. And homeless. (…)I-I’m talking about my birth father. (…)He was in and out of institutions for a while, but… for the last 15 years, he’s been on the streets mostly. [Where?] Here in New York. [Do you see him?] Well, that’s why I volunteer. Sometimes he recognizes me. Sometimes he doesn’t— just depends on if he’s on his meds.
