Chapter 9, 10 and 11 quotes

  1. 1. Chapter 9 1. When a child asks you something, answer him, for goodness' sake. But don't make a production of it. Children are children, but they can spot an evasion quicker than adults, and evasion simply muddles 'em. Atticus Finch. 2. I was born good but had grown progressively worse every year, spoken by Scout. 3. Why reasonable people go stark raving mad when anything involving a Negro comes up, is something I don't pretend to understand. Atticus Finch. Chapter 10 4. Shoot all the blue jays you want, if you can hit 'em, but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird. Spoken by Atticus Finch to daughter Scout. 5. 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. Spoken by Miss Maudie Atkinson to Scout. Chapter 11 6. 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. Scout 7. The one thing that doesn't abide by majority rule is a person's conscience. Atticus Finch. 8. 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. Atticus Finch.
