With these beautiful mockingbird tattoos, let's pay a tribute to literary icon and To Kill a Mockingbird author, the late Harper Lee.
Among her novels, it was Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird which made the most impact on her readers. It influenced many—from authors to lawyers—and served as an inspiration to some of them, in the career paths they took. “Harper Lee’s work inspired me and millions of others to stand against discrimination & pursue justice. She will be missed,” wrote Rep. Diana DeGette.
All in all, To Kill a Mockingbird shook people and made them aware. It made people open their minds and their eyes to the things happening around them. It was a total eye-opener.
“Things are always better in the morning.” —Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird
“Mockingbirds don’t do one thing but make music for us to enjoy. They don’t eat up people’s gardens, don’t nest in corncribs, they don’t do one thing but sing their hearts out for us. That’s why it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.” —Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird
“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.” —Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird
