But one day I'll have to explain about my nightmares. Why they came. Why they won't ever really go away. I'll tell them how I survive it. I'll tell them that on bad mornings, it feels impossible to take pleasure in anything 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. - Page 390

Because something is significantly wrong with a creature that sacrifices its children's lives to settle its differences. You can spin it any way you like. Snow thought the Hunger Games were an efficient means of control. Coin thought the parachutes would expedite the war. But in the end, who does it benefit? No one. The truth is, it benefits no one to live a world where these things happen. - Page 377
"Are you, are you, coming to the tree? Where they strung up a man, they say who murdered three? Strange things did happen here, no stranger would it be... if we met... at midnight in the hanging tree...."

Violence: Well, of course there is violence. People shoot people and blow up stuff.
Violence: Of COURSE there is violence. The book was WRITTEN to explain the horrors of war to a young audience. If this scares you then don't turn on the TV NEWS!!!
