To Kill a Mockingbird, which takes place in a small town in Alabama, is about life and the lessons everyday people obtained from it. By reading this classic novel, one can learn a lot about things such as kindness, hatred, racism, and humor. It also gave examples of the differences between the many different kinds of people. This novel also describes what it takes to be a better person in life. One quote that stood out in this book was one that was said by Atticus. He said, "You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view- until you climb in his skin and walk around in it" (Lee).
I believe this quote gives a good lesson about life. What it is saying is that you can think you know a lot about someone by just looking at them, but you have to expire nce being them to really feel what its like to be that person. Another quote that gave a good lesson about life was one that took place between Scout and Atticus. It read "Atticus, he was really nice... Most people are, Scout, when you finally see them" (Lee 281). What this has to say about life is that rumors and things alike go around about many people, but if you really get to know them, you will find that most people are nice.
You will also find that moat rumors about people are not true. Another quote that seemed to sum up the book well was one that took place between Atticus and M audie, which said "Mockingbirds don't do one thing but make music for us to enjoy. They don't eat up people's gardens... that's why it is a sin to kill a mockingbird" (Lee). What this quote says about life is that if things don't do anything to harm you, then you shouldn't harm them.
This quote was a good part of what the book was about. In this book, Tom Robinson and Boo Radley were examples of 'mockingbirds' for the people in May comb County. In the book, mockingbirds are described as creatures that didn't harm anybody and just minded their own business. This is how these two characters were portrayed in the book.
They didn't cause any harm or damage to anyone, and that is why they are looked at as 'mockingbirds.'.
