Harper Lee Quotes

"If you had been on that jury, son, and eleven other boys like you, Tom would be a free man," said Atticus. "So far nothing in your life has interfered with your reasoning process. Those are twelve reasonable men in everyday life, Toms jury, but you saw something come between them and reason. You saw the same thing that night in front of the jail. When that crew went away, they didnt go as reasonable men, they went because we were there. Theres something in our world that makes men lose their heads–they couldnt be fair if they tried. In our courts, when its a white mans word against a black mans, the white man always wins. Theyre ugly, but those are the facts of life."
