We came all this way, but now comes the day to bid you farewell.
I'm just having a whole lot of feelings about this movie. I almost started crying just doing the Google search for the poster image; no big deal.
Are you, are you, coming to the tree? Where I told you to run, so we'd both be free. Strange things did happen here; no stranger would it be, if we met at midnight in the hanging tree.Ever since they announced the Hunger Games movie series I've been saying that I think Mockingjay would make a better movie than it did a book.
Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter. - Martin Luther King Jr
The so-called ‘psychotically depressed’ person who tries to kill herself doesn’t do so out of quote ‘hopelessness’ or any abstract conviction that life’s assets and debits do not square. And surely not because death seems suddenly appealing. The person in whom Its invisible agony reaches a certain unendurable level will kill herself the same way a trapped person will eventually jump from the window of a burning high-rise. Make no mistake about people who leap from burning windows. Their terror of falling from a great height is still just as great as it would be for you or me standing speculatively at the same window just checking out the view; i.e. the fear of falling remains a constant. The variable here is the other terror, the fire’s flames: when the flames get close enough, falling to death becomes the slightly less terrible of two terrors. It’s not desiring the fall; it’s terror of the flames. And yet nobody down on the sidewalk, looking up and yelling ‘Don’t!’ and ‘Hang on!’, can understand the jump. Not really. You’d have to have personally been trapped and felt flames to really understand a terror way beyond falling. --David Foster Wallace
