A Person’s Conscience – Quote from To Kill A Mockingbird

The one thing that doesn't abid by majority rule is a person's conscience - Atticus Finch To Killl a Mockingbird

To Kill A Mockingbird is one of my all time favorite novels, and this is one of my favorite quotes from it. The one thing that doesn’t abide by majority rule is a person’s conscience. I love it. It’s so true, and as the world continues to change this is one of those concepts that stands out in the forefront of my mind. I once had a room mate who strongly disagreed with my one of my opinions and would often mention that “so and so” agreed with her or “this professor” agreed with her and I remember telling her that I really didn’t care who agreed with me or not, majority rule doesn’t make something right.
