Quotable Friday (28)

We have reached number six, in our countdown of quotations from the top 10 most popular books in the UK (according to the BBC Big Read 2003). The sixth most voted-for book was To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. This was one of three books in the top ten I gave 10/10 for enjoyment when I read it. It is also the book that appears most often on "must-read" lists.

There is tonnes in this book about justice and injustice, fighting, winning, courage and morality. But I quite like this little observation...

"There are just some kind of men who - who're so busy worrying about the next world they've never learned to live in this one, and you can look down the street and see the results."
