My brain and this world don’t fit each other.
How many times have people used a pen or paintbrush because they couldn’t pull the trigger?
Have you ever read the hunger games series? (from awsomecatlover)
Yes, I have read the series. It could have been one of the best YA dystopian series if Mockingjay was more effective. I think the third book was lack of some vividness and emotions. I had also found the characters more annoying in the third book. The first book is the best.
Who knows what will come out of the soul of man? The soul of man is a dark vast forest, with wild life in it.
My brother asked the birds to forgive him; that sounds senseless, but it is right; for all is like an ocean, all is flowing and blending; a touch in one place sets up movement at the other end of the earth. It may be senseless to beg forgiveness of the birds, but birds would be happier at your side – a little happier, anyway – and children and all animals, if you were nobler than you are now. It’s all like an ocean, I tell you. Then you would pray to the birds too, consumed by an all-embracing love, in a sort of transport, and pray that they too will forgive you your sin. Treasure this ecstasy, however senseless it my seem to men.
Fyodor Dostoevsky, The Brothers Karamazov
I’ve missed this book so I took a picture. Rereading is a better option of course if you miss a book.
