The evidence boils down to you-did-I-didn 't. The jury couldn 't possibly be expected to take Tom Robinson 's word against the Ewells, '" Atticus solemnly explains this to his brother.

He advises that you will need to keep your "Will" alive in the most challenging circumstances even though you feel that you are physically and emotionally beaten.
Resilience is shown in both of these heroes, as they took on noble tasks, while knowing it was futile. However Attikus and Bhutto stilled tried to just make a miniscule difference in their society. In To Kill a Mockingbird Atticus took Tom Robinson case, and even he admitted that a all white in the deep south would convict a black man on sight. Even so Atticus said that if he didn’t defend Tom Robinson he “couldn’t go to church and worship God if I didn’t try to help that man”(Lee 104).

Atticus taking over the case of Tom Robinson shows determination because it indicates his fearlessness to do what is right. For example, Atticus himself had said, “The main one is, if I didn’t I couldn’t hold up my head in town, I couldn’t represent this county in legislature, I couldn’t even tell you or Jem not to do something again”(Harper 100). Prior to this quote, it states fearlessness because Atticus would rather take the risk of losing prestige than to be seen as an racist coward. This also shows atticus a honest brave lawyer who understand the equality of people and justice. Proceeding to symbolism which is something physical or concrete that author uses to embody an idea.
His repetitive questions engage his audience with his words, forcing them to recall each failed attempt at peace. He says they "have held the subject in every light... but it has been all in vain." To further prolong the colonists' failed methods, Henry uses an anaphora that lists each failure and blatantly shows the obviousness of the situation and the desperation that should be felt.

The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.” The story centers around the Finch family and the lessons that both Jem and Scout Finch learn as their father defends a black man accused of rape. Throughout To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, we see the idea of true courage reflected in Jem Finch’s journey. With her words, Harper Lee paints a picture of what true courage as it is, and Jem Finch takes this lesson to heart as he sees examples of true courage in his life. For most of Jem’s life he had this false idea of bravery.
Brutus’ emotional wound ultimately deals with his internal conflict of the decision to kill Caesar in order to better Rome. In addition, he deals with such difficulty over the decision since his reasoning to kill Caesar does not come out of hatred or jealousy, but due to his fear of life under Caesar’s rule. In Act I, scene ii, lines 39-40, Brutus says, “Merely upon myself. Vexéd I am / Of late passions of some difference” (Shakespeare 848). This quote, from Brutus, means that his own thoughts and conflicts overwhelm him.
Though both Boo and Mrs.Dubose are both influential to the children, Atticus teaches them the most about courage. It is through defending black man Tom Robinson that he teaches Jem and Scout the importance of standing up for what you believe in.

He realizes that it would put both his children and himself at risk but Atticus knows that helping Tom is the right thing to do and thus, carries out the job.This is an act so courageous that his brother compares him to Christ by making the comment "let this cup pass from you, eh?" (Chapter 9).
