You never really understand a person until you consider it from his point of view… “…If I didn’t I couldn’t hold my head up in town, I couldn’t represent this country in the legislature, I couldn’t even tell you or Jem not to do something again.” I am simply defending a Negro—his name is Tom Robinson.
