Zitate Harper Lee

„Until I feared I would lose it, I never loved to read. One does not love breathing.“

—  Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird
Pt. 1, ch. 2 Jean Louise (Scout) Finch

„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 see it through no matter what.
- Atticus Finch“

—  Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird
Context: 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 see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do. Pt. 1, ch. 11 Atticus Finch

„I think there's just one kind of folks. Folks.“

—  Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird
Pt. 2, ch. 23 Jean Louise (Scout) Finch

„Atticus, he was real nice."

"Most people are, Scout, when you finally see them.“

—  Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird
Context: "An' they chased him 'n' never could catch him 'cause they didn't know what he looked like, an' Atticus, when they finally saw him, why he hadn't done any of those things... Atticus, he was real nice..." "Most people are, Scout, when you finally see them." Pt. 2, ch. 31 Jean Louise (Scout) Finch & Atticus Finch

„People in their right minds never take pride in their talents.“

—  Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird
Pt. 1, ch. 10 Miss Maudie

„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.“

—  Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird
Context: "I'd rather you shot at tin cans in the back yard, but I know you'll go after birds. Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit ‘em, but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird." That was the only time I ever heard Atticus say it was a sin to do something, and I asked Miss Maudie about it. “Your father's right," she said. "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." Pt. 1, ch. 10 Atticus Finch & Maudie Atkinson
