"You never really understand a person until you consider things in his point of view until- 'Sir?'- until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it"
- Atticus Finch
"Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit 'em, but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird.
- Atticus Finch
"When Uncle Jack caught me, he kept me laughing about a preacher who hated going to church so much that everyday he stood at his gate in his dressing gown-, smoking a hookah and delivered five-minute sermons to any passers-by who desired spiritual comfort.
- Scout Finch
"I try to give 'em a reason, you see. It helps folks if they latch on to a reason. When I come to town, which is seldom, if I weave a little and drink out of this sack, folks can say Dolphus Raymond's in the clutches of whiskey- that's why he won't change his ways. He can't help himself, that's why he lives the way he does."
- Dolphus Raymond
"Lula stopped, but said,'You ain't got no business bringin' white chillun here-they got their church, we got our'n. It is our church isn't it Miss Cal?'"
- Lula
"She was as sad ,I thought, as what Jem called a mixed child: white people wouldn't have anything to do with her because she lived among pigs; Negroes wouldn't have anything to do with her because she was white."
- Scout Finch
"As I made my way home, I felt very old, but when I looked at the tip of my nose I could see fine misty beads, but looking cross-eyed made me dizzy so I quit."
- Scout Finch
"'Hypocrites, Mrs. Perkins, born hypocrites,' Mrs. Meriweather was saying. ' At least we don't have that sin on our shoulders down here. People up there set 'em free, but you don't see 'em settin' at the table with 'em. At least we don't have the deceit to say to 'em yes you're as good as we are but stay away from us."
- Mrs. Meriweather

"Calpurnia said Atticus told her that the day they took Tom to prison he just gave up hope. She said Atticus tried to explain things to him, and that he must do is best not to lose hope because Atticus was doing his best to get him free."
- Scout Finch
"But it was a time of vague optimism for some of the people: Maycomb County had recently been told that it had nothing to fear but fear itself."
-Scout Finch
"Atticus was right. One time he said you never really know a man until you stand in his shoes and walk around in walk around in them. Just standing on the Radley porch was enough."
- Scout Finch
"When he said that, I knew he was afraid. Jem had his little sister to think of the time I dared him to jump off the top of the house:' If I got killed, what'd become of you?' he asked.
- Scout Finch
"I never understood her preoccupation with heredity. Somewhere, I had received the impression that Fine Folks were people who did the best they could with the sense they had, but Aunt Alexandra was of the opinion, obliquely expressed, that the longer a family had been squatting on a patch of land the finer it was."
- Scout Finch
"I thought mad dogs foamed at the mouth, galloped, leaped and lunged at throat, and I thought they did it in August. Had Tim Johnson behaved thus, I would have been less frightened."
- Scout Finch
" Judge Taylor had one interesting habit. He permitted smoking in his courtroom but did not himself indulge: sometimes, if one was lucky, one had the privilege of watching him put a long dry cigar into his mouth and munch it up slowly up."
- Scout Finch
"Jem became very articulate: ' 'd you see him, Scout? 'd you see him just standin' there?...'n' all of a sudden he just relaxed all over, an' it looked like that gun was a part of him ... an' he did it so quick, like... I hafta aim for ten minutes 'fore I can hit somethin'....'"
- Jem and Scout Finch
"'Yes, suh. I felt sorry for her, she seemed to try more'n the rest of 'em-' "
- Tom Robinson
"'It's against the law, all right,' said my father, 'and it's certainly badn a man spends his relief checks on green whiskey his children have a long way of crying from hunger pains.
- Atticus Finch
"'Atticus you've never laid a hand on her.' 'I admit that. So far I've been able to get by with threats. Jack, she minds me as well as she can. Doesn't come up to scratch half of the time, but she tries.'"
- Atticus Finch
"We leaped over the driveway wall, cut through Miss Rachel's side yard and went to Dill's window. Jem whistled bob-white. Dill's face appeared at the at the screen, disappeared, and five minutes later he unhooked the screen and crawled out. An old campaigner, he did not speak until we were on the sidewalk. 'What's up?' 'Jem's got the look-arounds,' an affliction Calpurnia said all boys caught his age."
- Scout Finch
"He had taken thirteeen dollars from his mother's purse, caught the nine o' clock from Meridian and got off at Maycomb Junction. He had walked ten or eleven of the fourteen miles to Maycomb, off the highway in the scrub bushes lest the authorities be seeking him, and had ridden the remainder of the way clinging to the backboard of a cotton wagon."
- Scout Finch
"Dil and Jem were simply going to peep in the window with the loose shutter to see if they could get a look at Boo Radley, and if I didn't want to go with them I could go straight home and keep my fat flopping mouth shut, that was all."
- Scout Finch
"'Simply because we were licked a hundred years before we started is no reason for us not to try to win,' Atticus said."
- Atticus Finch
"'You might hear some ugly talk about it at school, but do one thing for me if you will: you just hold your head high and keep those fists down. No matter what anybody says to you, don't you let 'em get your goat.'"
- Atticus Finch
