    ANSWER:I doubt that you will like this answer, but it is the correct answer to your question. I have studied Harper Lee’s novel “To Kill a Mockingbird”; and I have studied the screenplay adapted from the novel by Horton Foote for the 1962 film titled “To Kill a Mockingbird”. The quote about which you ask (i.e., “There’s a lot of ugly things in this world, son. I wish I could keep ‘em all away from you. That’s never possible.”) is NOT from Harper Lee’s novel. It is a line of dialogue written by Horton Foote in his adaptation of the novel for the screen.The following dialogue is taken directly from Horton Foote’s screenplay:_(Bob Ewell to Atticus Finch) “You ni_ ger lover.” _(Atticus Finch to Jem) “No need to be afraid of him, son. He’s all bluff.” [after they get home] _(Atticus Finch to Jem) “There’s a lot of ugly things in this world, son. I wish I could keep ‘em all away from you. That’s never possible.” Please see: [external link] … [second quote from film]The line is spoken on screen by Gregory Peck (portraying Atticus Finch). Gregory Peck (portraying Atticus Finch) speaks the line on screen to Phillip Alford (portraying Jem Finch).Please see: [external link] … [external link] should add that the only quote in the novel directed by Atticus Finch to his son, Jem, that comes close to the quote about which you ask appears in the first few pages of CHAPTER 23 when Atticus says the following to Jem who is upset that the jury has convicted Tom Robinson:_(Atticus to Jem) “If you had been on that jury, son, and eleven other boys like you, Tom would be a free man … So far nothing in your life has interfered with your reasoning process. Those are twelve reasonable men in everyday life, Tom’s jury, but you saw something come between them and reason … There’s something in our world that makes men lose their heads—they couldn’t be fair if they tried. In our courts, when it’s a white man’s word against a black man’s, the white man always wins. They’re ugly, but those are the facts of life.”Good luck!
