"That was the only time I ever heard Atticus say it was a sin to do something, and I asked Miss. Maudie about it. "Mockingbirds don't do one thing but make music for us to enjoy. They don't eat up people's gardens, don't nest in corncribs, they don't do one thing but sing their hearts out for us. That's why it's a sin to kill a mockingbird."' (Lee 90)

'" You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view [...] until you climb into his skin and walk around in it."' (Lee 30) Citations modern KKK Culture Ku Klux Klan is a lifestyle.
