Quote of the Day – a teaspoon of courage to get you through the week

“I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It’s when you know you’re licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do.”

Harper Lee in To Kill a Mockingbird.

  1. You know, I had to read To Kill A Mockingbird (and A Raisin In The Sun) for school so many times, that I’ve been conditioned to dislike it.

    But you singlehandedly made me want to pick up TKAM and read it again thanks to this great quote.

    Bravo.

    Thanks for sharing. 🙂

    • This is possibly the best comment I’ve ever received. I’m SO glad to have inspired you to give it another chance! I read To Kill a Mockingbird long before I was ever forced to study it so I loved it. Then, yes, school scarred my opinion of it a little but I’ve since recovered. It’s a truly inspiring book. Thank you!
