The Friday Five: To Kill a Mockingbird Quotes

To celebrate Harper Lee's birthday last week, we'll be using five quotes from the classic To Kill a Mockingbird.

"You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view... until you climb into his skin and walk around in it."
“People generally see what they look for, and hear what they listen for.”
"Courage is not a man with a gun in his hand. It's knowing 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."
"Mockingbirds don't do one thing but make music for us to enjoy... but sing their hearts out for us. That's why it's a sin to kill a mockingbird."
"Until I feared I would lose it, I never loved to read. One does not love breathing.”
