So I had to read 'To Kill a Mockingbird', because, well, I'm pretty sure it's a legal requirement for an English student... anyway... Atticus Finch - what a man. I'm not talking Gregory Peck, who, let's face it, was a bit of a fox back in the day.

Atticus Finch is one half of the perfect father - he's wise, patient and aggressive when necessary. For those that are interested, the other half of the perfect father is David Bowie, because he's fabulous and because of the song 'Kooks'. If those two were a gay couple, I would hand over my children like that. Take 'em! Make them fabulously intelligent, moral and stable citizens! Buy them pairs of shoes! And trumpets they can blow! And books of rules!

Anyway, here's some words of wisdom from him:

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

"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."

"People in their right minds never take pride in their talents."
