Atticus Finch: You never really understand a person. . .until you consider things from his point of view.
Scout: Sir?
Atticus Finch: Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.

Scout: Bending the law?
Atticus Finch: Uh. . .no. It’s an agreement reached by mutual consent. Now. . .here’s the way it works. You concede the necessity of going to school, we’ll keep right on reading the same every night. . .just as we always have. That a bargain?
