Capitalization of a quote


I'm using part of a sentence from a book as a complete sentence in my own essay.  Since the quoted portion starts in the middle of the original sentence, I am not sure whether to capitalize the first word or not.  This is from The Hunger Games:


   "...trespassing in the woods is illegal and poaching carries the severest of penalties..." (Collins, 5).
