    “I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you're licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what.

    “Sometimes the Bible in the hand of one man is worse than a whisky bottle in the hand of (another)... There are just some kind of men who - who're so busy worrying about the next world they've never learned to live in this one, and you can look down the street and see the results.”

    “Atticus said to Jem one day, "I’d rather you shot at tin cans in the backyard, but I know you’ll go after birds. Shoot all the blue jays you want, if you can hit ‘em, but remember it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird." That was the only time I ever heard Atticus say it was a sin to do something, and I asked Miss Maudie about it. "Your father’s right," she said. "Mockingbirds don’t do one thing except make music for us to enjoy. They don’t eat up people’s gardens, don’t nest in corn cribs, they don’t do one thing but sing their hearts out for us. That’s why it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.”

    The shadows of a beginning for black-white understanding, the persistent fight that Scout carries on against school, Jem's emergence into adulthood, Calpurnia's quiet power, and all the incidents touching on the children's "growing outward" have an attractive starchiness that keeps this southern picture pert and provocative.

  • Reading To Kill A Mockingbird is a necessity: it will change your life, it will change the way you view the world around you, it will inspire you, it will make you rethink how you treat people, how you view the world.

  • was probably one of the best books I have ever read! I loved the book and when I finished it, I was genuinely sad to have finished the book.

  • The ending of the book was quite surprising too, when a character I'd almost forgotten made his long-awaited appearance. Though I found my mind wandering off at points so I had no idea what I'd just read, I did quite enjoy this book, and thought it truly was very clever.

  • ...this book will inspire you, make you smile and move you to tears. Harper Lee's command of the English language moves her writing into poetry.
