1. ¡°You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view ¡­ Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.¡±

2. ¡°Until I feared I would lose it, I never loved to read. One does not love breathing.¡±

3. ¡°Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit ¡®em, but remember it¡¯s a sin to kill a mockingbird.¡±

6. ¡°Things are never as bad as they seem.¡±

7. ¡°You can choose your friends but you sho¡¯ can¡¯t choose your family, an¡¯ they¡¯re still kin to you no matter whether you acknowledge ¡¯em or not, and it makes you look right silly when you don¡¯t.¡±

8. ¡°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 you see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do.¡±

9. ¡°It was times like these when I thought my father, who hated guns and had never been to any wars, was the bravest man who ever lived.¡±

11. ¡°Atticus, he was real nice.¡± ¡°Most people are, Scout, when you finally see them.¡±

12. ¡°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.¡±

13. ¡°It¡¯s never an insult to be called what somebody thinks is a bad name. It just shows you how poor that person is, it doesn¡¯t hurt you.¡±

14. ¡°With him, life was routine; without him, life was unbearable.¡±

15. ¡°As you grow older, you¡¯ll see white men cheat black men every day of your life, but let me tell you something and don¡¯t you forget it¡­Whenever a white man does that to a black man, no matter who he is, how rich he is, or how fine a family he comes from, that white man is trash.¡±

- To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee

- The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, Mark Haddon

¡°I know not all that may be coming, but be it what it will, I¡¯ll go to it laughing.¡±
