If your kids are anything like mine they are totally crazy about the Hunger Games books and now the movie. So I thought some quotes from the first book might come in handy. Enjoy and please add your own favorites to the end.
“Here’s some advice. Stay alive.”
“Only I keep wishing I could think of a way to…to show the Capitol they don’t own me. That I’m more than just a piece in their Games”
“Panic begins to set in. I can’t stay here. Flight is essential.”…”But I can’t let my fear show”.
“The more likable he is, the more deadly he is.”
“She has no idea. The effect she can have”
“Happy Hunger Games! And may the odds be ever in your favor!”
“Scores only matter if they’re very good, no one pays much attention to the bad or mediocre ones.”
“Katniss, the girl who was on fire”
“It’s not a fair comparison really. Gale and I were thrown together by a mutual need to survive. Peeta and I know the other’s survival means our own death.”
“I am not pretty. I am not beautiful. I am as radiant as the sun”.
Cinna: “When you’re asked a question, find me, and answer it as honestly as possible.”
Katniss: “Even if what I think is horrible?”
Cinna: “Especially if what you think is horrible.”
Caesar: “Handsome lad like you. There must be some special girl. Come on, what’s her name?”
Peeta: “Well, there is this one girl. I’ve had a crush on her ever since I can remember. But I’m pretty sure she didn’t know I was alive until the reaping.”
Caesar: “She have another fellow?”
Peeta: “I don’t know, but a lot of boys like her.”
Caesar: “So, here’s what you do. You win, you go home. She can’t turn you down then, eh?”
Peeta: “I don’t think it’s going to work out. Winning…won’t help in my case”
Caesar: “Why ever not?”
Peeta: “Because…because…she came here with me.”
“Ladies and gentlemen, let the Seventy-fourth Hunger Games begin!”
“Here your dreams are sweet and tomorrow brings them true. Here is the place where I love you.”
