“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.”

“You just hold your head high and keep those fists down. No matter what anyone says to you, don’t let ‘em get your goat. Try fighting with your head for a change…it’s a good one, even if it does resist learning."

"'It's against the law all right,' said my father, 'and it's certainly bad when a man spends his relief checks on green whisky while his children have a way of crying from hunger pains. I don't know of landowner around here who begrudges those children any game their father can hit.''Of course he shouldn't, but he'll never change his ways. Are you going to take out your disapproval on his children'"

I'm not sure what chapters these quotes are found in..... you'll need to look the chapters up separately.
