love and heretics

It's better to light a candle than curse the darkness

What Would Atticus Do….

Saw this yesterday on the back of a car.

Made me smile.

To Kill a Mockingbird , if left unread should be immediately remedied.

One of my earliest remembering of learning to challenge assumptions, which if left unquestioned can be …even lethal.



  1. Which Atticus?
    Titus Pomponius Atticus (112/109 BC – 35/32 BC), ancient Roman littérateur / philosopher

    Atticus (philosopher), a Platonist philosopher and author of lost Plato commentary

    • hee, that would be atticus finch…

      • Well, If I’d read the damn book I would have known that, wouldn’t I? 😦

        I’ll get to it one day.

  2. Oh Its a good one. a couple of nuggets by Atticus to tempt you…
    “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view – until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.”
    “Courage is not a man with a gun in his hand. It’s knowing 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.”
    “When a child asks you something, answer him, for goodness sake. But don’t make a production of it. Children are children, but they can spot an evasion faster than adults, and evasion simply muddles ’em.”
