Pearls of Wisdom by Mr. Alex Cole
Pearl #1
Go with your gut. Do what YOU think right, not what the people around you believe.
Pearl #2
Always tell the truth, even if it hurts.
Pearl #3
Do not have to many expectations. The less expectations you have, the less disappointed and more happy you will be. Things wont go wrong if you are not expecting a certain something to happen. Have an open mind
Pearl #4
It is okay to have fears. Without fears, there would be no courage. There would be no pride in overcoming them.
Pearl #5
Success Does Not Come Without Failure.
Ex. "'Son', he said to Jem, 'I'm going to tell you something and tell you one time. Stop tormenting that man,'".
Atticus is reprimanding Jem and Scout for making fun of Boo Radley, when they do not know or feel what he is going through.
"If you can dream it, you can do it" -Walt Disney
“Happiness is not the absence of problems, it's the ability to deal with them.” - Steve Maraboli

“You don't have to knock anyone off their game to win yours. It doesn’t build you up to tear others down.”- Mandy Hale
"You take you with you"- Mom
Even as your environment around you changes, you remain the same and only you can make changes to better yourself.
'"Luck" is only achieved through the decisions and choices that you make." - Rabbi
When someone is successful in what they do, it is because of the choice that they made to dedicate their time and effort, not pure luck.
Always put forth your greatest effort, no matter what the outcome will be. Not trying will never lead to success.
Things in life will never be given to you. You are capable of success, but so is everybody else. You have to earn it
"Today is the tomorrow you were worrying about yesterday"- Grandma
Live life to the fullest and always enjoy the moment.
"Oh yes, the past can hurt. But the way I see it, you can either run from it, or learn from it." – Rafiki, from The Lion King
The past is very valuable, as it is something you can learn from.
In this song "baby" represents your goals. No obstacles can get in the way of you achieving your goals. Anything is possible.
"I was far too old and too big for such childish things" (Lee 99). Scout decides NOT to fight with Cecil, and acts as the bigger person. She stands her ground.
"Our kind of folks don't like the Cunninghams, the Cunninghams don't like the Ewells, and the Ewells hate and despise the colored folks" (Lee 303). People look down on others because of their class, because they have less than they do. Scout feels this is wrong.

Character > Class
"I'm tellin' you for the last time. Shut your trap or go home... You're gettin'more like a girl everyday" (Lee 69) Jem is saying this to Scout. They are making it seem as if it is a "bad" thing to act like a girl. Also, Aunt Alexandra criticizes Scout for not dressing in a lady-like manner.
“Mockingbirds don’t do one thing but make music for us to enjoy . . . but sing their hearts out for us. That’s why it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.” Mockingbirds are "innocent" and that is why it is sinful to kill one. Boo and Tom Robinson can both be classified as a mockingbird, or innocent, because they do no harm. However, they are being discriminated in the story.
