A very Happy Valentine’s Day to all our readers! To celebrate, we have compiled a list of our top 10 favorite quotes about love from The Hunger Games trilogy.

Whether it is Peeta Mellark, Finnick Odair, or even Johanna Mason‘s “Love is weird” quip in Catching Fire movie, the franchise has a great insight into human beings and how love shapes us all. Check out the quotes below:

  • “I wish I could freeze this moment, right here, right now, and live in it forever.” – Peeta Mellark, Catching Fire


  • This is the first kiss that we’re both fully aware of. Neither of us hobbled by sickness or pain or simply unconscious. Our lips neither burning with fever or icy cold. This is the first kiss where I actually feel stirring inside my chest. Warm and curious. This is the first kiss that makes me want another. – Katniss Everdeen, The Hunger Games


  • “I do think you’re mad and I’ll still go with you.” – Gale Hawthorne, Catching Fire


  • “If you die, and I live, there’s no life for me at all back in District Twelve. You’re my whole life. I would never be happy again.” – Peeta Mellark, Catching Fire


  • I realize only one person will be damaged beyond repair if Peeta dies. Me. – Katniss Everdeen, Catching Fire


  • “We were outside at the end of the day. I tried to catch your eye. You looked away. And then… for some reason, I think you picked a dandelion.” I nod. He does remember. I have never spoken about that moment aloud. “I must have loved you a lot.” Peeta Mellark, Mockingjay


  • “Did you love Annie right away, Finnick?” I ask. “No.” A long time passes before he adds, “She crept up on me.” – Katniss Everdeen and Finnick Odair, Mockingjay


  • “You’re still trying to protect me. Real or not real,” he whispers. “Real,” I answer. It seems to require more explanation. “Because that’s what you and I do. Protect each other.” – Peeta Mellark and Katniss Everdeen, Mockingjay


  • 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. – Katniss Everdeen, Mockingjay


  • So that’s who Finnick loves, I think. Not his string of fancy lovers in the Capitol. But a poor, mad girl back home. – Katniss Everdeen, Catching Fire
