When crimes begin to pile up they become invisible. When sufferings become unendurable the cries are no longer heard. The cries, too, fall like rain in summer."

I think that was Jefferson. Oh wait. That was Hermann Goering. Shoot."

I think that Peeta was onto something about us destroying one another and letting some decent species take over.

The truth is, it benefits no one to live in a world where these things happen."
— Suzanne Collins (Mockingjay)
