To Kill a Mockingbird - Selected Passages and Quotes

I thought it might be an idea to stick some quotes here that have struck a chord with me while i've been researching the book. I think some of the imagery that these quotes/passages conjure up could be a good starting point for my roughs and sketches. 

“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.”

“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.”

“Best way to clear the air is to have it all out in the open.”

“The one thing that doesn’t abide by majority rule is a person’s conscience.”

“People generally see what they look for and hear what they listen for.”

“Mockingbirds don’t do one thing except make music for us to enjoy. They don’t eat up people’s gardens, don’t nest in corn cribs, they don’t do one thing but sing their hearts out for us. That’s why it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.” 

“Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit ’em, but remember it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.”
