Quotes From Mockingjay With Page Numbers Chapter 6

“Finnick?” I say, “Maybe some pants?”
He looks down at his legs as if noticing his outfit for the first time. Then he whips off his hospital gown leaving him in just his underwear. “Why? Do you find this” — he strikes a ridiculously provocative pose — “distracting?”
I laugh. Boggs looks embarrassed and Finnick looks more like the guy I met at the Quarter Quell”

~Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay, Chapter 6, Page 79

 

“Well, don’t expect us to be too impressed. We just saw Finnick Odair in his underwear.”

~Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay, Chapter 6, Page 82

 

Mockingjay Quotes With Page Numbers Chapter 7

“Yes,” I whisper. The red blinking light on one of the cameras catches my eye. I know I’m being recorded. “Yes,” I say more forcefully. Everyone is drawing away from me—Gale, Cressida, the insects—giving me the stage. But I stay focused on the red light. “I want to tell the rebels that I am alive. That I’m right here in District Eight, where the Capitol has just bombed a hospital full of unarmed men, women, and children. There will be no survivors.” The shock I’ve been feeling begins to give way to fury. “I want to tell people that if you think for one second the Capitol will treat us fairly if there’s a cease-fire, you’re deluding yourself. Because you know who they are and what they do.” My hands go out automatically, as if to indicate the whole horror around me. “This is what they do! And we must fight back!”

I’m moving in toward the camera now, carried forward by my rage. “President Snow says he’s sending us a message? Well, I have one for him. You can torture us and bomb us and burn our districts to the ground, but do you see that?” One of the cameras follows as I point to the planes burning on the roof of the warehouse across from us. The Capitol seal on a wing glows clearly through the flames. “Fire is catching!” I am shouting now, determined that he will not miss a word. “And if we burn, you burn with us!”

~Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay, (Character: Katniss), Chapter 7, Pages 99-100

 

Mockingjay Quotes With Page Numbers Chapter 8

“Fire is catching! And if we burn, you burn with us!”

~Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay, Chapter 8, Page 106

 

Mockingjay Quotes With Page Numbers Chapter 9

“Are you, are you coming to the tree?
Wear a necklace of rope, side by side with me.
Strange things did happen here.
No stranger would let it be if we met up
At midnight in the hanging tree.”

~Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay, Chapter 9, Page 123

 

“I knew you’d kiss me.”
“How?” I say. Because I didn’t know myself.
“Because I am in pain,” He say’s. “That’s the only way I get your attention.”

~Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay, Chapter 9, Page 130

 

Mockingjay Quotes With Page Numbers Chapter 11

“I drag myself out of nightmares each morning and find there’s no relief in waking.”

~Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay, Chapter 11, Page 156

 

“It takes ten times as long to put yourself back together as it does to fall apart.”

~Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay, Chapter 11, Page 156

 

“Want a sugar cube?” he asks in his old seductive voice.”

~Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay, (Character: Finnick), Chapter 11, Page 158

 

“It’s impossible to be the Mockingjay. Impossible to complete even this one sentence. Because now I know that everything I say will be directly taken out on Peeta. Result in his torture. But not his death, no, nothing so merciful as that. Snow will ensure that his life is much more worse than death.

“Cut,” I hear Cressida say quietly.

“What’s wrong with her?” Plutarch says under his breath.

“She’s figured out how Snow’s using Peeta,” says Finnick.

There’s something like a collective sigh of regret from that semicircle of people spread out before me. Because I know this now. Because there will never be a way for me to not know this again. Because, beyond the military disadvantage losing a entails, I am broken.

Several sets of arms would embrace me. But in the end, the only person I truly want to comfort me is Haymitch, because he loves Peeta, too. I reach out for him and say something like his name and he’s there, holding me and patting my back. “It’s okay. It’ll be okay, sweetheart.” He sits me on a length of broken marble pillar and keeps an arm around me while I sob.

“I can’t do this anymore,” I say.

“I know,” he says.”

~Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay, (Characters: Katniss as narrator and listed characters), Chapter 11, Pages 162-163

 

Mockingjay Quotes With Page Numbers Chapter 12

“Finnick!” Something between a shriek and a cry of joy. A lovely if somewhat bedraggled young woman–dark tangled hair, sea green eyes–runs toward us in nothing but a sheet. “Finnick!” And suddenly, it’s as if there’s no one in the world but these two, crashing through space to reach each other. They collide, enfold, lose their balance, and slam against a wall, where they stay. Clinging into one being. Indivisible.
A pang of jealousy hits me. Not for either Finnick or Annie but for their certainty. No one seeing them could doubt their love.”

~Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay, Chapter 12, Page 175-176

 

Mockingjay Quotes With Page Numbers Chapter 13

“There’s a chance that the old Peeta, the one who loves you, is still inside. Trying to get back to you. Don’t give up on him.”

~Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay, Chapter 13, Page 184

 

Mockingjay Quotes With Page Numbers Chapter 14

“Sometimes when I’m alone, I take the pearl from where it lives in my pocket and try to remember the boy with the bread, the strong arms that warded off nightmares on the train, the kisses in the arena.”

~Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay, Chapter 14, Page 195

 

“I roll my eyes. “So when did I become so special? When they carted me off to the Capitol?”
“No, about six months before that. Right after New Year’s. We were in the Hob, eating some slop of Greasy Sae’s. And Darius was teasing you about trading a rabbit for one of his kisses. And I realized…I minded.”

~Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay, Chapter 14, Page 199

 

Mockingjay Quotes With Page Numbers Chapter 16

“Is that why you hate me?” I ask.
“Partly,” She admits. “Jealousy is certainly involved. I also think you’re a little hard to swallow. With your tacky romantic drama and your defender-of-the-helpless act. Only it isn’t an act, which makes you more unbearable. Please feel free to take this personally.”

~Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay, (Characters: Johanna and Katniss), Chapter 16, Page 220

 

“Katniss. I remember about the bread.”

~Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay, Chapter 16, Page 230

 

“I must have loved you a lot.”

~Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay, Chapter 16, Page 231

 

“What about Gale?”
“He’s not a bad kisser either,” I say shortly.
“And it was okay with both of us? You kissing the other?” He asks.
“No. It wasn’t okay with either of you. But I wasn’t asking your permission,” I tell him.
Peeta laughs again, coldly, dismissively. “Well, you’re a piece of work, aren’t you?”

~Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay, (Characters: Peeta and Katniss), Chapter 16, Page 232

 

“All those months of taking it for granted that Peeta thought I was wonderful are over. Finally, he can see me for who I really am. Violent. Distrustful. Manipulative. Deadly. And I hate him for it.”

~Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay, (Character: Peeta), Chapter 16, Page 232

 

Mockingjay Quotes With Page Numbers Chapter 17

“Oh, Peeta, Don’t make me sorry I restarted your heart.”

~Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay, Chapter 17, Page 242

 

“Delly lost her temper at Peeta over how he treated you. She got very squeaky. It was like someone stabbing a mouse with a fork repeatedly.”

~Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay, (Character: Gale), Chapter 17, Page 244

 

Mockingjay Quotes With Page Numbers Chapter 19

“You’re punishing him over and over for things that are out of his control. Now, I’m not saying you shouldn’t have a fully loaded weapon next to you round the clock. But I think it’s time you flipped this little scenario in your head. If you’d been taken by the Capitol, and hijacked, and then tried to kill Peeta, is this the way he would be treating you?” demands Haymitch.
I fall silent. It isn’t. It isn’t how he would be treating me at all. He would be trying to get me back at any cost. Not shutting me out, abandoning me, greeting me with hostility at every turn.”

~Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay, (Characters: Haymitch and Katniss as narrator), Chapter 19, Pages 268-269

 

“Ally.” Peeta says the words slowly, tasting it. “Friend. Lover. Victor. Enemy. Fiancee. Target. Mutt. Neighbor. Hunter. Tribute. Ally. I’ll add it to the list of words I use to try to figure you out. The problem is, I can’t tell what’s real anymore, and what’s made up.”

~Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay, Chapter 19, Page 270

 

“At a few minutes before four, Peeta turns to me again. “Your favorite colour . . . it’s green?”
“That’s right.” Then I think of something to add. “And yours is orange.”
“Orange?” He seems unconvinced.
“Not bright orange. But soft. Like the sunset,” I say. “At least, that’s what you told me once.”
“Oh.” He closes his eyes briefly, maybe trying to conjure up that sunset, then nods his head. “Thank you.”
But more words tumble out. “You’re a painter. You’re a baker. You like to sleep with the windows open. You never take sugar in your tea. And you always double-knot your shoelaces.”
Then I dive into my tent before I do something stupid like cry.”

~Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay, Chapter 19, Page 271

 

“You’re a painter. You’re a baker. You like to sleep with the windows open. You never take sugar in your tea. And you always double-knot your shoelaces.”

Mockingjay Quotes With Page Numbers Chapter 21

“If I could grow wings, I could fly. Only people can’t grow wings,” he say’s. “Real or not real?”
“Real,” I say. “But people don’t need wings to survive.”
“Mockingjays do.”

~Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay, Chapter 21, Page 302

 

“You’re still trying to protect me. Real or not real,” he whispers.

“Real,” I answer. “Because that’s what you and I do, protect each other.”

~Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay, Chapter 21, Page 302

 

Mockingjay Quotes With Page Numbers Chapter 22

“It’s a long shot, it’s suicide maybe, but I do the only thing I can think of. I lean in and kiss Peeta full on the mouth. His whole body starts shuddering, but I keep my lips pressed to his until I have to come up for air. My hands slide up his wrists to clasp his. “Don’t let him take you from me.”
Peeta’s panting hard as he fights the nightmares raging his head. “No. I don’t want to. . .”
I clench his hands to the point of pain. “Stay with me.”
His pupils contract to pinpoints, dilate again rapidly, and then return to something resembling normalcy. “Always,” he murmurs.”

~Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay, (Characters: Katniss and Peeta),Chapter 22, Page 314

 

“Stay with me.

Always.”

~Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay, (Characters: Katniss and Peeta), Chapter 22, Page 314

Mockingjay Quotes With Page Numbers Chapter 23

“I know what blood poisoning is, Katniss,” says Peeta. “Even if my mother isn’t a healer.”
I’m jolted back in time, to another wound, another set of bandages. “You said that same thing to me in the first Hunger Games. Real or not real?”
“Real,” he says. “And you risked your life getting the medicine that saved me?”
“Real.” I shrug. “You were the reason I was alive to do it.”

~Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay, (Character: Peeta), Chapter 23, Page 321

 

“I think….you still have no idea. The effect you can have.”

~Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay, Chapter 23, Page 325

 

“Oh, that I do know…Katniss will pick whoever she thinks she can’t survive without.”

~Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay, (Character: Gale), Chapter 23, Page 329

 

“No problem,” Gale replies. “I wake up ten times a night anyway.”
“To make sure Katniss is still here?” asks Peeta.
“Something like that,”…
“That was funny, what Tigris said. About no one knowing what to do with her.”
“Well, WE never have,”…
“She loves you, you know,” says Peeta. “She as good as told me after they whipped you.”
“Don’t believe it,”Gale answers. “The way she kissed you in the Quarter Quell…well she never kissed me like that.”
“It was just part of the show,” Peeta tells him, although there’s an edge of doubt in his voice.
“No, you won her over. Gave up everything for her. Maybe that’s the only way to convince her you love her.” There’s a long pause. “I should have volunteered to take your place in the first Games. Protected her then.”
“You couldn’t,” says Peeta. “She’d never have forgiven you. You had to take care of her family. They matter more to her than her life.”

“I wonder how she’ll make up her mind.”
“Oh, that I do know.” I can just catch Gale’s last words through the layer of fur. “Katniss will pick whoever she thinks she can’t survive without”

~Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay, (Characters: Gale and Peeta), Chapter 23, Pages 328-329

 

Mockingjay Quotes With Page Numbers Chapter 25

“Closing my eyes doesn’t help. Fire burns brighter in the darkness.”

~Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay, Chapter 25, Page 352

 

“Oh, my dear Miss Everdeen. I thought we had an agreement not to lie to each other.”

~Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay, (Character: President Snow), Chapter 25, Page 358, and Page 372

 

Mockingjay Quotes With Page Numbers Chapter 27

“I raise my left arm and twist my neck down to rip off the pill on my sleeve. Instead my teeth sink into flesh. I yank my head back in confusion to find myself looking into Peeta’s eyes, only now they hold my gaze. Blood runs from the teeth marks on the hand he clamped over my nightlock.

“Let me go!” I snarl at him, trying to wrest my arm from his grasp.

“I can’t,” he says.”

~Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay, Chapter 27, Page 373

 

“I no longer feel any allegiance to these monsters called human beings, despise being one myself. I think that Peeta was onto something about us destroying one another and letting some decent species take over. Because something is significantly wrong with a creature that sacrifices its children’s lives to settle its differences. You can spin it any way you like. Snow thought the Hunger Games were an efficient means of control. Coin thought the parachutes would expedite the war. But in the end, who does it benefit? No one. The truth is, it benefits no one to live in a world where these things happen.”

~Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay, (Character: Katniss as narrator), Chapter 27, Page 377

 

“But collective thinking is usually short-lived. We’re fickle, stupid beings with poor memories and a great gift for self-destruction.”

~Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay, Chapter 27, Page 379

 

“She’s not here,” I tell him. Buttercup hisses again. “She’s not here. You can hiss all you like. You won’t find Prim.” At her name, he perks up. Raises his flattened ears. Begins to meow hopefully. “Get out!” He dodges the pillow I throw at him. “Go away! There’s nothing left for you here!” I start to shake, furious with him. “She’s not coming back! She’s never ever coming back here again!” I grab another pillow and get to my feet to improve my aim. Out of nowhere, the tears begin to pour down my cheeks. “She’s dead, you stupid cat. She’s dead.”

~Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay, Chapter 27, Page 386

 

“But his arms are there to comfort me, and eventually his lips. On the night I feel that thing again, the hunger that overtook me on the beach, I know this would have happened anyway. That what I need to survive is not Gale’s fire, kindled with rage and hatred. I have plenty of fire myself. What I need is the dandelion in the spring. The bright yellow that means rebirth instead of destruction. The promise that life can go on, no matter how bad our losses. That it can be good again. And only Peeta can give me that. So after, when he whispers, “You love me. Real or not real?” I tell him “Real.”

~Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay, Chapter 27, (Characters: Katniss and Peeta), Page 388

I tell him, “Real.”

“There are much worse games to play.”

~Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay, Epilogue, (Katniss as narrator), Page 398

 

“I’ll tell them how I survive it. I’ll tell them that on bad mornings, it feels impossible to take pleasure in things because I’m afraid it could be taken away. That’s when I make a list in my head of every act of goodness I’ve seen someone do. It’s like a game. Repetitive. Even a little tedious after more than twenty years.

But there are much worse games to play.”

~Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay, (Character: Katniss as narrator), Epilogue, Page 398
