Quotes: To Kill a Mockingbird

I finished reading To Kill a Mockingbird sometime back.  One of the good novels I have read.  (Many thanks to the friend who gifted me the book :)  As with many other books, I collected quotations as I read.  Here is the collection:
  • Until I feared I would lose it, I never loved to read.  One does not love breathing.
  • The things that happen to people we never really know.
  • When stalking one's prey, it is best to take one's time.
  • People in their right minds never take pride in their talents.
  • It's not necessary to tell all you know.
  • You're not gonna change [anyone] by talkin' right.
  • One must lie under certain circumstances and at all times when one can't do anything about them.
  • A mob's always made up of people, no matter what.  Mr. Cunningham was part of a mob last night, but he was still a man.
  • Maybe we need a police force of children.
