'I'm Charles Baker Harris. I can read.'
'Now you tell your father not to teach you any more. It's best to begin reading with a fresh mind.'
'Reason I can't pass first grade, Mr. Finch, is I've had to stay out ever' spring an' help Papa with the choppin', but there's another'n at the house now that's field size.'
'Ain't no snot-nosed **** of a schoolteacher ever born c'n make me do nothin! You ain't makin' me go nowhere, missus.'
'When I went back, they were folded across the fence... like they were expectin' me.'
'Tree's dying. You plug 'em up with cement when they're sick. You ought to know that, Jem.'
'I'm simply defending a Negro -- his name's Tom Robinson.'
'Simply because we were licked a hundred years before we started is no reason for us not to try to win.'
'Grandma, she's got me in here and she won't let me out!'
'I hope and pray I can get Jem and Scout through it without bitterness, and most of all, without catching Maycomb's usual disease.'
'Your father's right. Mockingbirds don't do one thing but make music for us to enjoy.... That's why it's a sin to kill a mockingbird.'
'For God's sake, Mr. Finch, look where he is! Miss and you'll go straight into the Radley house! I can't shoot that well and you know it!'
'Atticus is a gentleman, just like me!'
'Jeremy Finch, I told you you'd live to regret tearing up my camellias. You regret it now, don't you?'
'I wanted you to see what real courage is.... It's when you know you're licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what.'
'Suppose you and Scout talked colored-folks' talk at home it'd be out of place, wouldn't it? Now what if I talked white-folks' talk at church, and with my neighbors?'
'Scout, try not to antagonize Aunty, hear?'
'Mr. Finch, don't tell Aunt Rachel, don't make me go back, please sir! I'll run off again--!'
'You know what we want. Get aside from the door, Mr. Finch.'
'I go to school with Walter. He's your boy, ain't he? Ain't he, sir?'
'Anything fit to say at the table's fit to say in front of Calpurnia. She knows what she means to this family.'
'Well, she was beaten around the head. There was already bruises comin' on her arms, and it happened about thirty minutes before--'
'...and just as I got to the fence I heard Mayella screamin' like a stuck hog inside the house--'
'So he come in the yard an' I went in the house to get him the nickel and I turned around an 'fore I knew it he was on me.'
'...if you fine fancy gentlemen don't wanta do nothin' about it then you're all yellow stinkin' cowards...'
'I picks for Mr. Link Deas.'
'No suh, she-- she hugged me. She hugged me round the waist.'
'Then you were mighty polite to do all that chopping and hauling for her, weren't you, boy?'
'Yes, suh. I felt right sorry for her, she seemed to try more'n the rest of 'em--'
'I'm not much of a drinker, but you see they could never, never understand that I live like I do because that's the way I want to live.'
'...we're gonna win, Scout. I don't see how we can't.'
'...there is one human institution that makes a pauper the equal of a Rockefeller.... That institution, gentlemen, is a court.'
'...come to a decision, and restore this defendant to his family. In the name of God, do your duty.'
'Miss Jean Louise, stand up. Your father's passin'.'
'I'm sorry, brother.'
'I think I'll be a clown when I get grown.'
'I wish Bob Ewell wouldn't chew tobacco.'
'Jean Louise, there is no doubt in my mind that they're good folks. But they're not our kind of folks.'
'Naw, Jem, I think there's just one kind of folks. Folks.'
'Now hear me, Bob Ewell: if I hear one more peep outa my girl Helen about not bein' able to walk this road I'll have you in jail before sundown!'
'I forgot my shoes, they're back behind the stage.'
'It's not that. I hear it when we're walkin' along, but when we stop I don't hear it.'
'Run, Scout! Run! Run!'
'Bob Ewell's lyin' on the ground under that tree down yonder with a kitchen knife stuck up under his ribs.'
'...I could hear it myself, then. Footsteps, I mean. They walked when we walked and stopped when we stopped.'
'Low-down skunk with enough liquor in him to make him brave enough to kill children. He'd never have met you face to face.'
'Thank you for my children, Arthur.'
'Will you take me home?'
