Atticus faces the racism of society with the conflict against the mob at the jailhouse
"Atticus was sitting propped against the front door. He was sitting in one of his office chairs, and he was reading... In ones and twos, men got out of the cars. Shadows became substances as lights revealed solid shapes moving toward the jail door. Atticus remained where he was." (Lee 201)
"'Hey, Mr. Cunningham. How's your entailment gettin' along?' Mr. Walter Cunningham's legal affairs were well known to me; Atticus had once described them at length. The big man blinked and hooked his thumbs in his overall straps. He seemed uncomfortable; he cleared his throat and looked away... 'Entailments are bad,' I was advising him, when I slowly awoke to the fact that I was addressing the entire aggregation... 'I'll tell him you said hey, little lady,' he said. Then he straightened up and waved a big paw. 'Let's clear out,' he called" (Lee 204)
Anyone can be influenced to do unspeakable crimes (even against their own values) due to the power of society
"...from the way he stood Jem was not thinking of budging. 'Go home, I said.' Jem shook his head. As Atticus's fists went to his hips, so did Jem's... Mutal defiance made them alike. 'Son, I said go home.' Jem shook his head. 'I'll send him home,' a burly man said, and grabbed Jemroughly by his collar. He yanked Jem nearly off his feet." (Lee 203)
"'So it took an eight-year-old child to bring 'em to their senses, didn't it?' said Atticus. 'That proves something- that a gang of wild animals can be stopped, simply because they're still human. Hmp, maybe we need a police force of children... You children last night made Walter Cunningham stand in my shoes for a minute. That was enough.'" (Lee 210)
In the 21st Century
"The world's endin', Atticus! Please do something--!" (Lee 86)
"How do you make a snowman?" (Lee 86)
A character's conflict within themselves, an internal struggle.
"Bob Ewell fell on his knife. He killed himself." (Lee 366)
Justice is not always lawful
"Heck can't you even try to see it my way?" (Lee 367)
"...for once you haven't been able to put two and two together..."(Lee 368)

"What was the evidence of her offense? Tom Robinson, a human being. She must put Tom Robinson away from her. Tom Robinson was her daily reminder of what she did. What did she do? She tempted a Negro...No code mattered to her before she broke it, but it came crashing down on her afterward." (Lee 231)
" Most of the time you were reading to her I doubt if she heard a word you said. Her whole mind and body were concentrated on that alarm clock." (Lee 127)
Courage is never giving up.
"I wanted you to see something about her - 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're licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what...Mrs. Dubose won, all ninety- eight pounds of her... she died beholden to nothing and nobody. She was the bravest person I ever knew.
People are not always what they appear to be.
First experiences are frightening
Individuals are not always as they seem on the surface
Humans are stronger in a group than as individuals
"With movements so swift they seemed simultaneous, Atticus's hand yanked a ball-tipped lever as he brought his gun to his shoulder. The rifle cracked." (Lee 127)
"Atticus is a gentleman, just like me!" (Lee 131)
"At the front door, we saw fire spewing from Miss Maudie's diningroom windows" (Lee 92)
Miss Maudie looked around, and the shadow of her old grin crossed her face. “Always wanted a smaller house, Jem Finch. Gives me more yard. Just think, I’ll have more room for my azaleas now!”
“You ain’t grievin‘, Miss Maudie?” I asked, surprised. Atticus said her house was nearly all she had.
“Grieving, child? Why, I hated that old cow barn. Thought of settin‘ fire to it a
hundred times myself, except they’d lock me up.” (Lee 97)
"...she seemed somehow fragile-looking, but when she sat facing us in the witness chair she became what she was, a thick bodied girl accustomed to strenuous labor." (Lee 203)
