Positive quote. Jem is maturing and understanding that the world can be a dark place.

"It's like bein' a caterpillar in a cocoon, that's what it is," he said. "Like somethin' asleep wrapped up in a warm place. I always thought Maycomb folks were the best folks in the world, least that's what they seemed like."

I am hesitant to provide a negative quote. Jem matures throughout the book. At heart he is always a kind thoughtful boy.
