Harper Lee Quote

“People generally see what they look for, and hear what they listen for.” ~ To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee
I find a simple truth to this statement. People do not believe what they do not want to believe and they do not see what is in front of their eyes if it is not what they are looking for. It is much easier to simply think knew had no idea what was going on, rather than knowing that one did not do anything to stop bad things from happening. Harper Lee wrote from the point of view of a small child, and children have an unfettered and curious view on life, allowing the reader to see and hear what they would have otherwise missed.
