"I long so much to make beautiful things. But beautiful things require effort and disappointment and perseverance."
Vincent van Gogh
The edge of the canvas // The pallete of colors after the painting
You go through so many different phases in life. I think, you know, life is this constant series of epiphany after epiphany of ‘oh I know this now, I didn’t know that then’ and you’re a different person today than you were yesterday. But I just think that as far as where I wanted to be 5 years ago, this is it. I wouldn’t change a thing.
Hope. It is the only thing stronger than fear. A little hope is effective. A lot of hope is dangerous. Spark is fine, as long as it’s contained.

The way that they have latched on to Katniss Everdeen [and] the whole Hunger Games. Who doesn’t want to be that woman? There is no self there. It isn’t self-centered. It isn’t about her being pretty or using her sexuality. It is all about her using her strength. She sacrifices herself for love. It is amazing that 13-year-old girls are looking at that and saying, “She is my hero.”
