Eight Life Lessons from The Hunger Games Series


  1. Pretty isn’t everything: “I am not pretty. I am not beautiful. I am as radiant as the sun.”
  1. Surround yourself with kind people: “Kind people have a way of working their way inside me and rooting there.”
  1. Winter, both literally and metaphorically, doesn’t last forever: “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.”

  1. No explanation needed for this one: “Destroying things is much easier than making them.”
  1. Give yourself time to recover: “It takes ten times as long to put yourself back together as it does to fall apart.”
  1. Independence is important: “Only I keep wishing I could think of a way…to show the Capitol they don’t own me. That I’m more than just a piece in their Games.”
  1. Carbs are important too: “I don’t want to lose the boy with the bread.”
  1. Girls can think about more than just smooching and romance (even though it’s fun sometimes): “I really can’t think about kissing when I’ve got a rebellion to incite.”
