I should’ve made this my first Favorite Quote Friday. Why didn’t I make this my first? Ah well. Can’t do anything about it now. Ol’ Harper will have to deal with being #2… There are few books in this world I’ve read more than once. Outlander got a second read. Several Penny Reid books have been reread. Some John Green and Jenny Han…. But only one book has had a reread nearly every year since I first cracked the spine. Yeah, it should’ve been my first post in this series….
Readers, I give you To Kill A Mockingbird, by Harper Lee. Warning: Possible spoilers ahead!
“Neighbors bring food with death and flowers with sickness and little things in between. Boo was our neighbor. He gave us two soap dolls, a broken watch and chain, a pair of good-luck pennies, and our lives. But neighbors give in return. We never put back into the tree what we took out of it: we had given him nothing, and it made me sad.” –
“Until I feared I would lose it, I never loved to read. One does not love breathing.”
“The one thing that doesn’t abide by majority rule is a person’s conscience.”
“It was times like these when I thought my father, who hated guns and had never been to any wars, was the bravest man who ever lived.”
“Real courage is when you know you’re licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what.”
