In the end both kids figure out that Mrs. Dubose was actually a morphine addict who had vowed to go clean before she died. Scout and Jem, unknowingly, helped her by reading and keeping her company. Scout and Jem learn to see beneath appearances and examine the truth. Like their father, the kids realize that a little understanding and compassion can break down barriers. As for the quotes, just take a look at the chapter. It will take you like two minutes!
