I'll check this out in a bit....... just one example?

yes, please just one example from one of these chapters. the questions only pertain to chapter 6 through 11.

Scout is concerned about things the children at school are saying about her father. She asks him point blank if he is what they say, and then asks why he is defending Tom Robinson and why he has to defend him. Atticus' reply is completely honest:

“Because I could never ask you to mind me again. Scout, simply by the nature of the work, every lawyer gets at least one case in his lifetime that affects him personally. This one’s mine, I guess. You might hear some ugly talk about it at school, but do one thing for me if you will: you just hold your head high and keep those fists down. No matter what anybody says to you, don’t you let ‘em get your goat. Try fighting with your head for a change… it’s a good one, even if it does resist learning.”
