6: Quotes | “You never really understood a person until you consider things from his point of view—until you climb into his skin and walk around it.”(36) | “ It’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.”(90) | "You just hold your head up high and keep those fist down" (76) | "Most people are nice when you finally see them”(Ch.31)
7: "Simply because we were licked a hundred years before we started is no reason for us not to try to win,"(84) | "It's not okay to hate anybody" (246)
8: This quote refers to how Scout needs to stop fighting no matter what the other kids say. Atticus is trying to teach her to be the bigger person by standing up to the discrimination towards her by using her head. | The quote means that anything that has done no harm should be left alone. For example, Tom Robinson he is convicted of raping a Mayella Ewell, everyone knows the Ewell's are liars, but Tom's black so he must've done it. The innocent should not be blamed. | This quote means that you shouldn't judge a person until you get to know them and understand what they are going through. In the book, they judge so many people why what they look like or do without knowing the truth, | Atticus says this because he's teaching his children to hate no one. He's teaching them tolerance which isn't present during that specific time. And it makes a big difference on how they are raised compared to the other children. He wants them to be open minded and not think black and white.

He knows the prejudice that is against Tom Robinson, but he is willing to fight that to overcome adversity and win. | Quotes Cont.. | This quote was referring to Boo Radley. He never came outside so the children heard horrible rumors and things about him. Until Scout finally met Boo she thought he was a scary man, but in all reality he was sweet, kind, and was just looking out for them..
10: Property of Scout Finch | Dear Diary, It's Scout. I don't understand why they wont believe Mr.Robinson. I mean ever'one knows them Ewells are trash! It just ain't makin' sense. Atticus says to not mind what they say, but I ever' time I hear em I get the need to get em' in the face. We went down to the court house without Atticus knowin'. We was sittin' up with all the coloreds people. It ws sure crowded. Atticus made us leave. Calpurnia snitched on us so we have to eat supper then come back. I'm 'bout done with my supper so goodbye diary. Scout Finch

13: "Nobody wanna see us together But it don't matter, no 'Cause I got you..." | This song represents the book very well. In the song it is talking about the discrimination of two lovers being together. Even though this story isn't about love, the characters must overcome all the discrimination in order to win to trial of Tom Robinson. Nobody wants to see Tom win this case, but Atticus is willing to risk everything in order to win. Even if it means him and his family are being put out there and laughed at, he wants to make a change. | For more lyrics: http://goo.gl/R361z
