"For what? Nothing’s going on here," he says. "Besides, I like watching you sleep. You don’t scowl. Improves your looks a lot."
This, of course, brings on a scowl that makes him grin.”
"Finnick knows then what Haymitch and I know. About Peeta. Being truly, deep-down better than the rest of us.”

Seriously. In a way, I suppose it is appropriate that they can’t deal with people who challenge their assertions and think that not everything is as black and white as is made out.
The thing that drives me apoplectic though is how dare people dismiss or belittle Katniss’s grief over HER SISTER.

Mandela fought against apartheid for decades, spent twenty-seven years in prison for his work, and was eventually elected President of South Africa in 1994. In 1993 he and F.W. de Klerk received the Nobel Peace Prize “for their work for the peaceful termination of the apartheid regime, and for laying the foundations for a new democratic South Africa”.
Nelson Mandela passed away today at 95 after a long battle with a recurring lung infection.
