7.) "If there's just one kind of folks, why can't they get along with each other? If they're all alike, why do they go out of their way to despise each other? Scout, I think I'm beginning to understand something. I think I'm beginning to understand why Boo Radley's stayed shut up in the house all this time. It's because he wants to stay inside." -Jem (Chapter 23)

8.) "She seemed glad to see me when I appeared in the kitchen, and by watching her I began to think there was some skill involved in being a girl." -Scout (Chapter 14)

12.) "Bad language is a stage all children go through, and it dies with time when they learn they're not attracting attention with it." -Atticus (Chapter 28)

13.) "Looks like she didn't have nobody to help her. I felt right sorry for her." -Tom Robinson (Chapter 13)
1.) This quote is special to me, because it reminds me of all the times, that I've thought my parents were the best in the world. It allowed me to relate to Scout and how she was feeling.



2.) I think this quote is fantastic, because it perfectly portrays Boo Radley's character in the book, as not typical and very interesting.



3.) I like this quote, because it's one of the only quotes in the book that talks about a mockingbird. And it provides perfect foreshadowing in the case of Tom Robinson



4.)  This has always been a quote that I've loved, because I believe it is 100% true. You really never can judge a book by its cover. And I think in this way Atticus is sticking up for Boo Radley.


5.) This quote is just plain funny to me! It sounds so cute, because Scout is confused and is clearly trying to understand on her own. 

6.) I chose this quote, because I agree with Atticus on this sentence exactly. People make their own decisions and its difficult to change their minds when they've already made up theirs. 

7.) I chose this quote, because I felt like Jem was really breaking through and making his own decisions and breakthroughs on his own. He makes a pretty big connection on the topic of Boo Radley too.






8.) I love this quote, because I immediately knew exactly what Scout was talking about, and agreed. I the goal of it was also to show how mature Scout was becoming, even like Jem. 

9.) I like this quote from Atticus, because I feel like he shows actual emotion and dissaray unlike some of his other quotes. This one seems to exactly fit how his emotion should be at the time.

10.) I chose this quote, because I feel like this is how a lot of counties were at this time. Scout is explaining the Ewell situation in more detail than usual.



11.) I chose this quote, because I thought it was cute and funny. I think it also portrays Dill's personality perfectly, a fun-loving little boy, with an imagination.



12.) This quote reminds me of the typical "good parent" who is really good at understanding children and dealing with obsacles that the family faces. Atticus strikes me as a parent that can handle anything. 

13.) I've always been fascinated with this quote, because it amazes me that something like this would ever be "out of line." I think it's also a major mistake that Tom made in his trial.
