TBD on Ning

Let's celebrate this wonderful story, which was published in 1960.  


For those who haven't read it, here's a treat for you:

Or here, if that doesn't work.


For me, the lessons about life dovetailed with what my mother always told us: "Life's not fair.  Nobody ever said it was going to be fair.  But you have to try your best to be fair yourself."


What has it meant to you?

Thanks Chez. I'm surprised how easily I found it. I knew which scene it was.

"Atticus had said it was the polite thing to talk to people about
what they were interested in, not about what you were interested in.
Mr. Cunningham displayed no interest in his son, so I tackled his
entailment once more in a last-ditch effort to make him feel at home.
"Entailments are bad," I was advising him, when I slowly awoke to
the fact that I was addressing the entire aggregation. The men were
all looking at me, some had their mouths half-open. Atticus had
stopped poking at Jem: they were standing together beside Dill.
Their attention amounted to fascination. Atticus's mouth, even, was
half-open, an attitude he had once described as uncouth. Our eyes
met and he shut it. "
How ya coming along with the book Chez? Done yet?
Yep, it was as delicious as I remembered. What luck to find it on line. I'll look for some other titles soon; there is quite a selection available if you don't need the very latest best-seller. (I tend not to read those, anyway.)
