This is the last quote from Go Set a Watchman that I'll be posting. I hope I will continue to post quotes from other works.

This quote starts like this: "the time your friends need you is when they're"

Yet another quote by Jack Finch. It's quite interesting to see how he plays a much larger role in this novel than he used to in the first one.

This is also by Jack Finch.

Who would have known that Uncle Jack would be the one to help out Scout? In any case, this novel wasn't too bad as a whole.

This is another part that I highlighted while reading Go Set a Watchman right after finishing To Kill a Mockingbird.

I really enjoyed reading this part, so I thought I'd share this with everyone as well.

slaughtered tens of millions of people doing 'em..."

This is from when Scout finally ends up confronting Atticus, and I particularly liked this section of the book.

This line is from Scout remembering an incident in her school year (middle school, I think?), and while I'm not entirely sure at the moment why I highlighted this, I thought I'd still share this quote.

The Shadow over Innsmouth | H.P. Lovecraft

I'm paused at 54% of this collection of Lovecraft's works, and this is the only part that I've highlighted so far. I think it will take me quite a while to read the whole thing.

Seems like a very insightful opinion by Jack Finch. Maybe I find it insightful because I love history?

The "quote" is about Scout talking about the plot of this book that she asked Atticus to read for her, and I think the book just ends in a truly magnificent way like this. I basically breezed through this book in a few days. Although Go Set a Watchman was kind of disappointing... Well, I better quit rambling.

P.S. This is my last quote on To Kill a Mockingbird! I hope to post about the quotes from other books when I get the chance.

Atticus was right. One time he said you never really know a person until you stand in his shoes and walk around in them. Just standing on the Radley porch was enough. - Scout

Well, this is the part that I couldn't all type on my previous post. It's also interesting to see Scout's reaction to it and the way she mentions shooting a mockingbird.

The quote (if I can call this that) continues on to the next page.

I tried typing the rest of it, but then posted the photo of the next page.

Strange that Miss Gates, a school teacher, seems ok with the persecution that's been going on in her country for a very long time while she feels sorry for the Jewish people who are being persecuted under Hitler...

This is when Jem talks to Scout about there being four kinds of folks in Maycomb County, and when Scout tells him about her opinion. The part I liked is basically from "Naw, Jem, I think there's just one kind of folks. Folks." to the end of this page, ending with "it's because he WANTS to stay inside."

Basically, two quotes on one page. One begins with "There's something in our world that makes men lose their heads..." and the other begins with "The one place where a man ought to get a square deal..."

"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

(I had to put this additional line by Dill separately because it appears on the next page.)

This is when Jem gets something special from Mrs. Dubose, and the quote that I wasn't able to type word for word because of lack of space, which begins from "I wanted tou to see something about her." I wonder if I should upload a photo of the quote from now on instead? Anyway, I recently read To Kill a Mockingbird for the second time and it was as good as the first time.

quote

“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.“ - Atticus

There are three sentences of Atticus' that follow after this, but apparently the whole thing is too long to post at once. Oh, well.

“Don't fret, Jem. Things are never as bad as they seem.“ - Miss Maudie Atkinson

“as I waited I thought, Atticus Finch won't win, he can't win, but he's the only man in these parts who can keep a jury out so long in a case like that. And I thought to myself, well, we're making a step - it's just a baby-step, but it's a step.“ - Miss Maudie Atkinson

They are all trying to tell me in some weird, echoing way that it's all on account of the Negroes... but it's no more the Negroes than I can fly and God knows, I might fly out the window any time, now. - Jean Louise Finch

The Woman in White | William Wilkie Collins

“We don't want genius in this country, unless it is accompanied by respectability - and then we are very glad to have it, very glad indeed.“ - the father of the two girls that Pesca taught Italian to (probably a real minor character)

I don't think this character will make an appearance again, but found this quote to be interesting just the same.

The Woman in White | William Wilkie Collins

“You see I don't think much of my own sex, Mr. Hartright - which will you have,
tea or coffee? - no woman does think much of her own sex, although few of them
confess it as freely as I do.“ - Miss Marian Halcombe

quote

"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." - Atticus

"baby, it's never an insult to be called what somebody thinks is a bad name. It just shows you how poor that person is, it doesn't hurt you." - Atticus

quote

“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

“People in their right minds never take pride in their talents.“ - Miss Maudie Atkinson

quote

“Jack! 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

“It's different this time. This time we aren't fighting the Yankees, we're fighting our friends. But remember this, no matter how bitter things get, they're still our friends and this is still our home.“ - Atticus

"Simply because we were licked a hundred years before we started is no reason for us not to try to win." - Atticus

"Try fighting with your head for a change... it's a good one, even if it does resist learning." - Atticus

quote
hungrybird

"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." - Atticus

But, remember, boy, that a kind act can sometimes be as powerful as a sword. As a mortal, I was never a great fighter or athlete or poet. I only made wine. The people in my village laughed at me. They said I would never amount to anything. Look at me now. Sometimes small things can become very large indeed. - Dionysus to Percy
