"Tough times don't last, tough people do."

Gregory Peck who played Atticus outside his Universal Studios Hollywood office, 1963.

"They're certainly entitled to think that, and they're entitled to full respect for their opinions...but before I can live with other folks I've got to live with myself. The one thing that doesn't abide by majority rule is a person's conscience."
- Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird [1960], Chapter 11, spoken by the character Atticus.
