To Kill a Mockingbird

What are two themes of To Kill a Mockingbird and passages (with page numbers) that support those themes?

 I have to do this for English and I have no idea what to pick.

Issues of race and bigotry is a theme,

"Scout," said Atticus, "nigger-lover is just one of those terms that don't mean anything—like snot-nose. It's hard to explain—ignorant, trashy people use it when they think somebody's favoring Negroes over and above themselves. It's slipped into usage with some people like ourselves, when they want a common, ugly term to label somebody."  Ch 11


Compassion for others:

"First of all," he said, "if you can learn a simple trick, Scout, you'll get along a lot better with all kinds of folks. You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view […] until you climb into his skin and walk around in it." Ch 3
