Dubose’s insults to Atticus, Atticus tells him, “You just hold your head high and be a gentleman.”(Lee 133) This event demonstrates Atticus’s courtesy because even though Ms. Dubose was insulting him and his children, Atticus showed his courteous nature and remained a gentleman. Another situation which shows Atticus being courteous is when he goes to tell Helen Robinson about her husband’s death. When Atticus arrives at her house, he notices a small, female child attempting, unsuccessfully, to climb down the stairs. Being the gentleman that he is, Atticus removed his hat and offered his finger and helped the child down the stairs. This shows Atticus being courteous even in a private situation.

This makes his conscience "[stir] up hotter than ever"(Twain 139) because in reflection to morals taught to him in the "book", the bible, by Miss Watson, it is a sin and wrongful to hurt another and steal.In Michael Lackey essay, Beyond Good and Evil: Huckleberry Finn on Human Intimacy, Lackey states that "For there to be an objective moral value, there must first be a God who spoke it into being. "(Lackey 493) From this statement one can suggest that Huckleberry's morals were spoken into fruition by God, thus why he claim it is wrong to loot and maltreat others, which is against the bible, yet with prejudice, based on his own feeling, he ultimately does not betray Jim.

Later in the story, during the trial, the jury wrongly finds Tom Robinson guilty despite Atticus’s capable and intense defense.
