"He wore blue linen shorts tat buttoned to his shirt, his hair was snow white and stuck to his head like duck-fluff; he was a year my senior but I towered over him. As he told the old tale his blue eyes would lighten and daken; his laugh was sudden and happy; he habitually pulled at a cowlick in the center of his forehead."
"The house was low, was once white with a deep front porch and green shutters , but had long ago darkened to the color of the slate-gray yard around it. Rain-rotted shingles drooped the eaves of the veranda; oak trees kept the sun away."
The Radley Place
"In rainy weather the streets turned to red slop; grass grew on the sidewalks, the courthouse sagged in the square."
"She was all angles and all bones; she was nearsighted; she squinted; her hand was wide as a bed slat and twice as hard."
"People moved slowly then. They ambled across the square, shuffled in and out of the stores around it, took their time about everything. A day was twenty-four hour long but seemed longer. There was no hurry, for there was nowhere to see outside the boundaries of Maycomb County. But it was a time of vague optimism for some of the people. Maycomb County had recently been told that it had nothing to fear but fea itself."
Depression-era south, Maycomb in particular
"She was a Graham from Montgomery; Atticus met her when he was first elected to the state legislature. He was middle-aged then, she was fifteen years his junior."
Scout and Jem's mother
"Inside the house lived a malevolent phantom. People said he existed, but Jem and I had never seen him. People said he went out at night when the moon was down, and peeped in windows. When people's azaleas froze in a cold snap, it was because he had breathed on them."
Boo Radley
"He never spoke to us. When he passed we would look at the ground and say 'Good morning, sir,' and he would cough in reply."
Mr. Radley
"Jem and I found our father satisfactory: he played with us, read to us, and treated us wth courteous detachment."
"He dined on raw squirrels and any cats he ould catch, that's why his hands were bloodstained-if you ate an animal raw, you could never wash the blood off. There was a long jagged scar that ran across his face; what teeth he had were yellow and rotten; his eyes popped, and he drooled most of the time."
