Review Sheet #1 – Quotes
Analyze the quote – On a separate sheet of paper, explain what these quotes from the novel mean, how they relate to
the novel (their context), and how they relate to a major theme in the novel.
1. When he gave us our air-rifles Atticus wouldn't teach us to shoot. Uncle Jack instructed us in the rudiments thereof; he said
Atticus wasn't interested in guns. Atticus said to Jem, "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 hear Atticus say it was a sin to do something, and I asked Miss Maudie about it. "You're 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 mocking bird."
2. Maycomb was an old town, but it was a tired old town when I first knew it. In rainy weather the streets turned to red slop;
grass grew on sidewalks, the courthouse sagged in the square. Somehow, it was hotter then: a black dog suffered on a
summer's day; bony mules hitched to Hoover carts flicked flies in the sweltering shade of the live oaks on the square. Men's
stiff collars wilted by nine in the morning. Ladies bathed before noon, after their three-o'clock naps, and by nightfall were like
soft teacakes with frostings of sweat and sweet talcum.-Scout
3. "They're certainly entitled to think that, and they're entitled to full respect for their opinions," said Atticus, "but 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
4. "I don't know [how they could convict Tom Robinson], but they did it. They've done it before and they did it tonight and
they'll do it again and when they do it-seems that only children weep."-Atticus talking to Jem
5. "'First of all,' he said, 'If you can learn a simple trick, Scout, you'll get along a lot better with all kinds of folks. You never
really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view-'
'Sir?'
'-until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.'"
6. "'A lady?' Jem raised his head. His face was scarlet. 'After all those things she said about you, a lady?'
'She was. She had her own views about things, a lot different from mine, maybe...Son, I told you that if you hadn't lost your
head I'd have made you go read to her. I wanted you to see something about her. 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 you see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do.'"
7. "'What's the matter?' I asked.
Atticus said nothing. I looked up at Mr. Cunningham, whose face was equally impassive. Then he did a peculiar thing. He
squatted down and took me by both shoulders.
'I'll tell him you said hey, little lady,' he said.
Then he straightened up and waved a big paw. 'Let's clear out,' he called. 'Let's get going, boys.'"
8. "'Miss Jean Louise?'
I looked around. They were all standing. All around us, and in the balcony on the opposite wall, the Negroes were getting to
their feet. Reverend Sykes's voice was as distant as Judge Taylor's:
'Miss Jean Louise, stand up. Your father's passin'.'"
