Miss Madie stopped rocking, and her voice hardened. "you are too young to understand it," she said,
"But sometimes the Bible in the hand of one man is worse than a whiskey bottle in the hand of -oh, of your father." Miss Madie, 60
To me this quote just means that some people take religion and things like that over extremely. I love this quote because it just shows that to much of even a good thing can be bad.
There are just some kind of men who-who’re so busy worrying about the next world they’ve never learned to live in this one, and you can look down the street and see the results.” Miss Madie, Pg.60

I like this because to me it's saying that many people worry about whats going to happen to them after they die, but really instead of worrying about that you should be carrying about what's going on in your life now. You only have one life to live so live it the best way you can.
“Simply because we were licked a hundred years before we started is no reason for us not to try to win,” Atticus said. Atticus, Pg.101

To me this just means that even if you have tried something in the passed and it failed does not mean that you should give up trying to achieve your goal.
“People in their right minds never take pride in their talents,” said Miss Maudie. Miss Madie, Pg.130

This is a very cool quote from the book because to me it's saying that many people who are able to do incredible things or things other people can't do don't feel they are that inportant, or dont give themselves enough credit for what they can do.
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. Scout, Pg.149

I think this is just a good saying because I think that it says that even though u start something and know there is no possible way you could win, you still keep trying because you know it's the right thing to do.
Jem Finch said she wouldn’t get burnt if she had enough faith, but it was hot down there. Scout, Pg.156

Jem is just saying that if people could have enough faith and not be afraid of the things that could happen to you then then even if they do something wrong on accident or even on purpose, the outcome of that wrong thing wouldn't be as bad.
“So it took an eight-year-old child to bring ‘em to their senses didn’t it?” said Atticus. “That proves something- that a gang of wild animals can be stopped, simply because they’re still human. Atticus, Pg.210

This means that even though some people seem really bad they still are human on the inside so talking to them and treating them like a normal person could help them.
I try to give ‘em a reason, you see it helps folks if they can latch onto a reason. Dolphus Ramond, Pg.268

This means that if people have a reason for something somebody does, then they wont judge them as much as if the person just did what they did because they felt like it. If they are able to come up with a reason, good or bad then it helps them understand why someone is the way they are.
“Cry about the simple hell people give other people- without even thinking. Cry about the hell white people give colored folks, without even stopping to think that they’re people, too.” Dolphus Ramond, Pg.269

People don't stop to thing that something they do has an outcome on someone else. They don't think before they do things and just do it out of selfishness, they don't consider some people there equals.
“But there is one way in this country in which all men are created equal-there is one human institution that makes a pauper the equal of a Rockefeller, the stupid man the equal of an Einstein, and the ignorant man the equal of any college president. That institution, gentlemen, is the court.” Atticus, Pg.274

It's just saying that the court system trys to make everyone who comes encounter with it an equal member.
Suddenly she spoke: “Don’t fret, Jem. Things are never as bad as they seem.” Miss Maudie, Pg.288

If something seems aweful to you, it probably isn't even that bad. Everything in our lives seems bad at times but after something else happens, then the thing that happened before wont seem as bad.
Mr. Underwood simply figured it was a sin to kill cripples, be they standing, sitting, or escaping. He likened Tom’s death to the senseless slaughter of songbirds by hunters and children. Scout, Pg.323

People should be considered non threatening, as long as no harm is being done. Killing someone out of sheer difference in opinion or skin color is not a good enough reason.
Then Mr. Underwood’s meaning became clear: Atticus had used every tool available to free men to save Tom Robinson, but in the secret courts of men’s hearts Atticus had no case. Tom was a dead man the minute Mayella Ewell opened her mouth and screamed. Scout,

That just means that since Tom was a black man, no matter what he did or didn't do blacks were not considered equals to whites and putting Tom up against Mayella, he had no chance.
“Mr. Finch, there’s just some kind of men you have to shoot before you can say hidy to ‘em. Even then, they ain’t worth the bullet it takes to shoot ‘em. Ewells ‘as one of ‘em.” Mr. Tate, Pg.361

No matter how hard you try to be nice to somebody, if they are crazy enough nothing can stop them from doing what they set out to do.
“Let the dead bury the dead this time, Mr. Finch. Let the dead bury the dead.” Mr Tate, Pg.369

Instead of making a case out of all this, and what happened it's just saying to let this one go and to not worry about it.
