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.
(To kill a mockingbird).
Before I can live with other folks I've got to live with myself. The one thing that doesn't abide by majority rule is a person's conscience.
(Atticus; To kill a mockingbird).
Dill: Yes sir, a clown. There ain't one thing in this world I can do about folks except laugh, so I'm going to join the circus and laugh my head off.
Jem: You got it backwards, Dill. Clowns are sad, it's folks that laugh at them.
Dill: Well I'm gonna be a new kind of clown. I'm gonna stand in the middle of the ring and laugh at the folks.
(Dill & Jem; To kill a mockingbird).
