To Kill a Mockingbird

Dr. Buford

Dr. Buford’s profession was medicine and his obsession was anything that grew in the ground, so he stayed poor. Uncle Jack Finch confined his passion for digging to his window boxes in Nashville and stayed rich” (43). This passage most likely means that: *

1 - Farming is an undervalued profession

2 - To choose one’s passion is often also a choice to forgo riches

3 - Dr. Buford’s life has been more personally fulfilling while Uncle Jack Finch’s has been more materially comfortable

4 - All of the above
