Miss Maudie Quotes

Three of the best book quotes from Miss Maudie
  1. #1
    “There are some men in this world who are born to do our unpleasant jobs for us. Your father’s one of them.”
  2. #2
    “Mockingbirds don’t do one thing but make music for us to enjoy . . . but sing their hearts out for us. That’s why it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.”
  3. #3
    “What I meant was, if Atticus Finch drank until he was drunk he wouldn’t be as hard as some men are at their best. 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.”
