1Until I feared I would lose it, I never loved to read. One does not love breathing.
2[on 'To Kill a Mockingbird'] It is and it isn't autobiographical. The trial, and the rape case charge that brings on the trial, are made out of a composite of such cases and charges. What I did present as exactly as I could was the clime and tone, as I remembered them, of the town in which I lived. From childhood on, I did sit in the courtroom watching my father argue cases and talk to juries.
3Before I can live with other folks, I've got to live with myself.The one thing that doesn't abide by majority rule is a person's conscience.
4Real courage is when you know you're licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and see it through, no matter what.
5They're Southern people, and if they know you are working at home they think nothing of walking right in for coffee. But they wouldn't dream of interrupting you at golf.

3She was awarded the 2010 National Medal of the Arts for her services to literature.
4Her second published novel, "Go Set A Watchman," was actually the first one she wrote. In it, Scout and Jem, the main characters from her first published novel, "To Kill A Mockingbird," are already adults. When she first presented it to her agent, he told her the characters were interesting, but the story was not. She was instructed to write about the characters when they were younger. The result was her first published novel, "To Kill A Mockingbird," which was made into the film To Kill a Mockingbird (1962). The discovery of the manuscript for "Go Set A Watchman" in late 2014, resulted in investigations by the State of Alabama, into whether she was mentally competent to consent to it being published. Despite suffering from a stroke and macular degeneration, she repeatedly said yes.
