    “Deep in the meadow, hidden far away
    A cloak of leaves, a moonbeam ray
    Forget your woes and let your troubles lay
    And when it's morning again, they'll wash away
    Here it's safe, here it's warm
    Here the daisies guard you from every harm
    Here your dreams are sweet and tomorrow brings them true
    Here is the place where I love you.”
    Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games

    Rae Lori
    “If I may say, Rich, your wife is looking lovelier with each passing day.”

    “You may,” Rich’s muffled words fell against the large red apple in his mouth. He carried a plate of various fresh fruit and the bowl of spaghetti Jace had pointed out earlier. He set the plates down and took the apple out of his mouth while he munched on a piece. “She can’t hear it enough times with the discomfort, aches, pains, bloating and cramping she feels.”

    “Why don’t you also share the gas, cravings and the sudden violent tendencies I get, honey?” Joanna said flippantly as she reached for the spaghetti.

    “Ah!” Rich smacked her hand away and moved the bowl out of her reach. He pushed the fruit bowl forward in its place. “That’s healthier for our kids.”

    “They want messy pasta right now.”

    “Tell them they don’t always get what they want.”

    “Their mother wants messy pasta right now.”

    “Tell her she doesn’t always get what she wants.”

    Joanna leaned forward, pursing her lips and raising her eyebrow. “Once the children are born, papa won’t be getting what he wants late at night when he gives me that “I’m in heat” look. I’m sure of that.”

    Rich’s hand on the apple froze. Slowly he chewed, looking up at Jace and Gael whose gazes had been volleying back and forth on the couple as they spoke. Reluctantly, he pushed the spaghetti bowl forward. He reached for the fruit bowl but winced when Joanna smacked his hand away and pulled both bowls in front of her.”
    Rae Lori, Within the Shadows of Mortals

    Rixa White
    “They decide to show it is good
    It is a show

    They shout it is good
    It is a show

    They won’t let anything good to show up
    It is a show

    What do people believe?

    Is it a show?”
    Rixa White

    Rixa White
    “Look at me
    I am the life in a wasteland

    Look at me
    I am the slavery through the ages

    Look at me
    I am the mirror of the world

    Look at me
    I am the illusion I’ve fought for

    Look at me
    I’m still loving you

    and I keep being here

    for you, for me,
    and for what’s worth breathing”
    Rixa White

    Rixa White
    “Here I am
    Looking at the world’s mirror
    Finding myself
    at the center of a maze
    Constructing the roots of a dream
    for a nationless society
    by the power of peace”
    Rixa White

    محمد الغزالي
    “أن الفقر نوعان: فقر صعلكة وكسل، وفقر سببه الجهاد والبذل، أو إيثار الحلال القليل على الحرام الكثير، أو الترفع عن قبول السحت والرشوة وهدايا السلطة المتاحة للمرء.. الأول معصية، والآخر محمدة، وحال الأفراد والجماعات فى أمتنا الكبرى يرجع إلى النوع الأول غالبا، ففقر المسلمين واستدانتهم، وقلة ذات اليد عندهم ترجع إلى عجز عن مكابدة الحياة، وجهالة بمفاتيح الخير، واستهلاك الأوقات فى البطالة والملذات! إ”

    J.D. Salinger
    “I don’t give a damn, except that I get bored sometimes when people tell me to act my age. Sometimes I act a lot older than I am - I really do - but people never notice it. People never notice anything.”
    J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye

    Connie Brockway
    “Where will you go? What will you do?" he demanded.

    "That need be no concern of yours--"

    "The hell it isn't!" he shouted. "Everything about you is my concern."

    She opened her mouth to deny this but the look of him stopped her. For a long tense moment he studied her and when he spoke his voice was low and furious and yearning.

    "I don't give a bloody damn if I never share your bed, your name, or your house -- you are still my concern. You can leave, take yourself from my ken, disappear for the rest of my life but you cannot untangle yourself from my -- my concern. That I have of you, Miss Bede, for that, at least, I do not need your permission."

    His words shocked her. She looked decades hence and she saw a specter of what might have been haunting her every moment, her every act, for the rest of her life.

    "Your concern is misplaced."

    "It's mine to misplace," he said steadily.”
    Connie Brockway, My Dearest Enemy

    Suzanne Collins
    “I'm coming back into focus when Caesar asks him if he has a girlfriend back home. Peeta hesitates, then gives an unconvincing shake of his head.

    Handsome lad like you. There must be some special girl. Come on, what’s her name?" says Caesar.

    Peeta sighs. "Well, there is this one girl. I’ve had a crush on her ever since I can remember. But I’m pretty sure she didn’t know I was alive until the reaping."

    Sounds of sympathy from the crowd. Unrequited love they can relate to.

    She have another fellow?" asks Caesar.

    I don’t know, but a lot of boys like her," says Peeta.

    So, here’s what you do. You win, you go home. She can’t turn you down then, eh?" says Caesar encouragingly.

    I don’t think it’s going to work out. Winning...won’t help in my case," says Peeta.

    Why ever not?" says Caesar, mystified.

    Peeta blushes beet red and stammers out. "Because...because...she came here with me.”
    Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games
