Textual Evidence pertaining to parts of characters bodies?
Hi, this is an English assignment for me due in a week. It is about finding evidence (quotes) that describe the character's body parts. This is not in a direct sense ("All Finch's had bad left eyes...") but more using body parts to describe the characters like for example -
Spine/Neck/Backbone (When atticus gets spit on, he refuses to fight?)
Here is a list of all that you can do. Please do as many as you can

This is a tough assignment, since there are very few direct quotations that will fit your criteria. However, here are a few examples of "body parts" connotations and metaphors from Harper Lee's novel To Kill a Mockingbird.
VOICE: "Mrs. Merriweather played her voice like an organ; every word she said received its full measure." (Chapter 24)
TEETH: "Miss Maudie's gold bridgework tinkled... 'Where are your britches today?' 'Under my dress.' " (Chapter 24)
HAND: "Aunt Alexandra fitted into the world of Maycomb like a hand into a glove."
EARS: Eula May (the telephone operator) is the ears of Maycomb.
EYEBROWS: Both Atticus and his brother, Jack, have their eyebrows mentioned on more than one occasion.
ARM & MUSCLES: Tom Robinson's strength and deformed arm are both mentioned several times.
NOSE: Miss Stephanie is the nosiest woman in town.
