"I spent most of the remaining twilights that summer sitting with Miss Maudie Atkinson on her front porch."

"When she was admitted into our confidence, every time she baked she made a big cake and three little ones, and she would call across the street: “Jem Finch, Scout Finch, Charles Baker Harris, come here!” Our promptness was always rewarded."

"She looked across the street at us. Suddenly she grinned. “Jem Finch,” she called. “You devil, bring me back my hat, sir!”

"Miss Maudie puzzled me. With most of her possessions gone and her beloved

yard a shambles, she still took a lively and cordial interest in Jem’s and my affairs."
