"The brick walls are there for a reason. They're not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something... If you want something bad enough, never give up (and take a boost when offered). Brick walls are there for a reason. And once you get over them-even if someone has practically had to throw you over- it can be helpful to others to tell them how you did it."
"No matter how bad things are,you can always make things worse. At the same time, it is often within your power to make them better."
"Too many people go through life complaining about their problems. I've always believed that if you took one-tenth of the energy you put into complaining and applied it to solving the problem, you'd be surprised by how well things can work out... Complaining cannot work as a strategy. We all have finite time and energy. Any time we spend whining is unlikely to help us achieve our goals. And it won't make us happier."
"If you wait long enough, people will surprise and impress you. When you're frustrated with people, when they've made you angry, it just maybe because you haven't given them enough time. Jon warned me that sometimes this took great patience - even years. But in the end, people will show you their good side. Almost everybody has a good side. Just keep waiting. It will come out."
"My colleague told me: It took me a long time, but I've finally figured it out. When it comes to men who are romantically interested in you, it's really simple. Just ignore everything they say and only pay attention to what they do."
"It's not how hard you hit. It's how hard you get hit... and keep moving forward."
"Showing gratitude is one of the simplest yet most powerful things humans can do for each other."
"Apologies are not pass/fail. I always told my students: When giving an apology, any performance lower than an A really doesn't cut it. Half hearted or insincere apologies are often worse than not apologizing at all because recipients find them insulting... A good apology is like an antibiotic; a bad apology is like rubbing salt in the wound.
"It's not about how to achieve your dreams. It's about how to lead your life. If you lead your life the right way, the karma will take care of itself. The dreams will come to you."

"Destroying things is much easier than making them." Katniss Everdeen
"At some point, you have to stop running and turn around and face whoever wants you dead. The hard thing is finding the courage to do it." –Katniss Everdeen
"It takes ten times as long to put yourself back together as it does to fall apart." –Katniss Everdeen
"Some walks you have to take alone." – Katniss Everdeen
"There's a chance that the old Peeta, the one who loves you, is still inside. Trying to get back to you. Don't give up on him." – Primrose Everdeen
still trying to protect me. Real or not real," he whispers.
"Real," I answer. "Because that's what you and I do, protect each other."
"What I need to survive is not Gale's fire, kindled with rage and hatred. I have plenty of fire myself. What I need is the dandelion in the spring. The bright yellow that means rebirth instead of destruction. The promise that life can go on, no matter how bad our losses. That it can be good again. And only Peeta can give me that." – Katniss Everdeen
"I'll tell them how I survive it. I'll tell them that on bad mornings, it feels impossible to take pleasure in things because I'm afraid it could be taken away. That's when I make a list in my head of every act of goodness I've seen someone do. It's like a game. Repetitive. Even a little tedious after more than twenty years. But there are much worse games to play." - Katniss Everdeen
