"Catching Walter Cunningham in the schoolyard gave me some pleasure, but when I was rubbing his nose in the dirt Jem came by and told me to stop." Page 30 This quote shows that Scout is a bully and takes her emotions out on other kids. In the beginning of the book, Scout is like this, but as the story continues, she changes.
"Soon we were clustered around her desk, trying in various ways to comfort her." Page 37 After Burris Ewell yelled rude things at Miss Caroline, Scout tried to make her feel better. This shows that Scout has become more caring, even for people that she doesn't like very much, such as her teacher.
"When I passed the Radley place for the fourth time that day-twice at full gallop-my gloom had deepened to match the house." Page 37 Scout and all the other kids are afraid of the Radleys. As the book goes on they learn more about them and become curious instead of afraid.
No more fighting
I wish I could hit you!
"Dill and Jem were simply going to peep in the window with the loose shutter to see if they could get a look at Boo Radley, and if I didn't want to go with them I could go straight home and keep my fat flopping mouth shut, that was all." Page 69 Scout has become more cautious when interacting with the Radley's house and does not want to be a part of Dill and Jem's plans. Atticus told the kids to leave the Radley's alone and Scout wants to listen.
I don't think this is a good idea Jem!
"'Just think, Scout,'" he said, '"if you'd just turned around, you'da seen him.'" Page 96 While Scout was distracted watching Miss Maudie's house burn, she did not notice that Boo Radley had put a blanket around her. Schout was very surprised to hear this because she had never seen Boo leave his house ever, and it confirmed he was alive.
"You might hear some ugly talk about it at school, but do one thing for me if you will: you just hold your head high and keep those fists down." Page 101 Atticus tells Scout to try thinking with her head and not her fists from now on. Scout used to fight a lot but now she listens to Atticus and tries to stay away from trouble and not let what people say make her mad.
