She never questioned it, never thought about it, never even realized that before she made any decision of importance the reflex, ‘What would Atticus do?’ passed through her unconscious; she never realized what made her dig in her feet and stand firm whenever she did was her father; that whatever was decent and of good report in her character was put there by her father; she did not know that she worshiped him.”

    Against their father, fool me not so much
    To bear it tamely; touch me with noble anger,
    And let not women’s weapons, water-drops,
    Stain my man’s cheeks! No, you unnatural hags,

    No, I’ll not weep.
    I have full cause of weeping, but this heart
    Shall break into a hundred thousand flaws,
    Or ere I’ll weep. O fool, I shall go mad!

    I know when one is dead and when one lives.
    She’s dead as earth.—Lend me a looking glass.
    If that her breath will mist or stain the stone,
    Why, then she lives.
