      经典名句-英文:You never reallyunderstand a person until you consider things from his point of view.



      “That ain’t right, Miss Maudie. You’re the best lady I know.”

      Miss Maudie grinned. “Thank you ma’am. Thing is, foot-washers think women are asin by definition. They take the Bible literally, you know.”



      “Is that why Mr. Arthur stays in the house, to keep away from women?”

      “I’ve no idea.”



      “It doesn’t make sense to me. Looks like if Mr. Arthur was hankerin‘ after heaven he’dcome out on the porch at least. Atticus says God’s loving folks like you love yourself-”


      Miss Maudie stopped rocking, and her voice hardened. “You are too young tounderstand it,” she said, “but sometimes the Bible in the hand of one man is worse thana whiskey bottle in the hand of—oh, of your father.”


      I was shocked. “Atticus doesn’t drink whiskey,” I said. “He never drunk a drop in hislife—nome, yes he did. He said he drank some one time and didn’t like it.”


      Miss Maudie laughed. “Wasn’t talking about your father,” she said. “What I meant was,if Atticus Finch drank until he was drunk he wouldn’t be as hard as some men are attheir best. There are just some kind of men who—who’re so busy worrying about thenext world they’ve never learned to live in this one, and you can look down the streetand see the results.”


      “Do you think they’re true, all those things they say about B—Mr. Arthur?”

      “What things?”



      I told her.

      “That is three-fourths colored folks and one-fourth Stephanie Crawford,” said MissMaudie grimly. “Stephanie Crawford even told me once she woke up in the middle of thenight and found him looking in the window at her. I said what did you do, Stephanie,move over in the bed and make room for him? That shut her up a while.”



      I was sure it did. Miss Maudie’s voice was enough to shut anybody up.


      “No, child,” she said, “that is a sad house. I remember Arthur Radley when he was aboy. He always spoke nicely to me, no matter what folks said he did. Spoke as nicely ashe knew how.”


      “You reckon he’s crazy?”


      Miss Maudie shook her head. “If he’s not he should be by now. The things that happento people we never really know. What happens in houses behind closed doors, whatsecrets-”


      “Atticus don’t ever do anything to Jem and me in the house that he don’t do in theyard,” I said, feeling it my duty to defend my parent.


      “Gracious child, I was raveling a thread, wasn’t even thinking about your father, butnow that I am I’ll say this: Atticus Finch is the same in his house as he is on the publicstreets. How’d you like some fresh poundcake to take home?”


      I liked it very much.

      Next morning when I awakened I found Jem and Dill in the back yard deep inconversation. When I joined them, as usual they said go away.

      我最 爱吃这种饼子。


      “Will not. This yard’s as much mine as it is yours, Jem Finch. I got just as much right toplay in it as you have.”

      Dill and Jem emerged from a brief huddle: “If you stay you’ve got to do what we tellyou,” Dill warned.



      “We-ll,” I said, “who’s so high and mighty all of a sudden?”

      “If you don’t say you’ll do what we tell you, we ain’t gonna tell you anything,” Dillcontinued.

      “You act like you grew ten inches in the night! All right, what is it?”

      Jem said placidly, “We are going to give a note to Boo Radley.”

      “Just how?” I was trying to fight down the automatic terror rising in me. It was all rightfor Miss Maudie to talk—she was old and snug on her porch. It was different for us.
