Ev's 30 Day Book Challenge - Day 17

To Kill a Mockingbird - Harper Lee

 

Day 17 - Your favourite quote from your favourite book.

 


So many to choose from in this wonderful, wonderful book!  I would have to say, the quote that chokes me up every time I read it, and that's even now, was said by Reverend Sykes at the end of the trial when Atticus was leaving the courtroom. -

 

"Miss Jean Louise. Miss Jean Louise, stand up. Your father's passing"

 

Another favourite from the same book comes from Atticus Finch himself when, in talking to his daughter, he gives her a perfect bit of advice.   - 

 

"If you just learn a single trick, Scout, you'll get along a lot better with all kinds of folks. 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."
