Earlier this month marked the 62nd anniversary of one of my favorite books, Harper Lee's "To Kill a Mockingbird" (1960). It’s a Southern novel containing truths so universal that they bear repeating in 2022. Truths that embody our mantra Think Straight Talk Straight… Below are just a few:

“You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view … Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.”

“I wanted you to see what real courage is ... 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.”

"People generally see what they look for and hear what they listen for."

"The one thing that doesn't abide by majority rule is a person's conscience."

"Sometimes the Bible in the hand of one man is worse than a whisky bottle in the hand of another ... There are just some kind of men who -- who're so busy worrying about the next world they've never learned to live in this one, and you can look down the street and see the results."
