1. “Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

15. “But he had always believed in fighting for the underdog, against the top dog. He had learned it, not from The Home, or The School, or The Church, but from that fourth and other great moulder of social conscience, The Movies. From all those movies that had begun to come out when Roosevelt went in.He had been a kid back then, a kid who had not been on the bum yet, but he was raised up on all those movies that they made then, the ones that were between '32 and '37 and had not yet degenerated into commercial imitations of themselves like the Dead End Kid perpetual series that we have now. He had grown up with them, those movies like the every first Dead End, like Winternet, like Grapes Of Wrath, like Dust Be My Destiny, and those other movies starring John Garfield and the Lane girls, and the on-the-bum and prison pictures starring James Cagney and George Raft and Henry Fonda.”

I was their Mockingjay long before I accepted the role.”

23. “Soffrirai profondamente, fratello mio, quando scoprirai quanti nostri simili sono contagiati dall'odio – anche tra i nostri amici, anche tra i nostri parenti, te l'ho detto. E sai perché? Perché sono vigliacchi. Ma un giorno la pagheranno, la pagheranno per non aver avuto il coraggio di drizzare le schiene, di urlare contro le azioni più infami. Nessuno vuole ribellarsi, nessuno: la ribellione imbarazza la gente. In realtà non so se sia imbarazzo o stanchezza. Fatto sta che gli unici a ribellarsi sono quelli che soffrono perché qualcuno fa loro del male. Tutt'intorno non c'è nessuno che reagisca, nessuno che alzi la voce. E' sempre stato così, e resterà così. L'indifferenza regna sovrana. L 'indifferenza è la peggiore delle malattie: peggio della peste e peggio dei nazisti. La peste si può debellare, i nazisti che sono mortali, finiranno per crepare tutti quanti. Ma l'indifferenza non la puoi combattere, se non a prezzo di enormi sacrifici. L'indifferenza è la ragione per cui non puoi dormire sogni tranquilli, perché un giorno perderemo tutto, e non perché siamo deboli e siamo stati schiacciati da qualcuno più forte di noi, ma perché ci siamo mostrati vigliacchi e non abbiamo fatto niente per impedirlo. La guerra è la guerra. La guerra ti farà prendere coscienza delle verità più tremende. Ma la verità più atroce, quella più insopportabile, è che siamo soli. E lo saremo sempre. I più soli tra i soli. Soli per sempre. E dovremo cavarcela da soli.”

As many times before, she kept the hoop close to her waist and then twirled it with small, tight bursts of speed. As the hoop gathered in momentum it started to give off a hum that soon took on a light blue illumination far brighter than the streetlamps. It was so bright, that it lit up the entire backyard.”
