What's this from?


Recommended Posts

I have this quote going around in my head and I've been trying to figure out what it's from.

Let the dead bury the dead

I think it comes from a flim, so if this should be in entertainment then please move it.

Anyone know where it's from?

It's from near the end of 'To Kill a Mockingbird'.

"I'm not a very good man, sir, but I am sheriff of Maycomb County. Lived in this town all my life an' I'm goin' on forty-three years old. Know everything that's happened here since before I was born. There's a black boy dead for no reason, and the man responsible for it's dead. Let the dead bury the dead this time, Mr. Finch. Let the dead bury the dead." (Sheriff Tate)

Thanks! Now my mind is at ease. I read that book and saw the film, that's probably why I couldn't figure out where it came from.
