Harper Lee Quotes

Born in 1926, Harper Lee was best known for To Kill A Mockingbird (published in 1960). To Kill a Mockingbird won the Pulitzer Prize the following year, and has been a staple in modern lit ever since. While Mockingbird was her most popular work, in 2015 Lee made headlines again when Go Set a Watchman was published.

In honour of the celebrated writer, here are 10 Harper Lee quotes to inspire you:

  1. “Real courage is when you know you’re licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what.”
  2. “Until I feared I would lose it, I never loved to read. One does not love breathing.”
  3. “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view.”
  4. “Things are never as bad as they seem.”
  5. “The one thing that doesn’t abide by majority rule is a person’s conscience.”
  6. “People generally see what they look for, and hear what they listen for.”
  7. “I think there’s just one kind of folks. Folks.”
  8. “As you grow up, always tell the truth, do no harm to others, and don’t think you are the most important being on earth.”
  9. “The book to read is not the one that thinks for you but the one which makes you think.”
  10. “It’s better to be silent than to be a fool.”
