After Jack steals Piggy's glasses, the remaining boys fret over what to do next. Without the the glasses, the boys cannot restart the signal fire, and the possibility of rescue becomes remote. Piggy decides that he must go to Castle Rock to retrieve his glasses. He tells Ralph and Samneric,
"I don’t ask for my glasses back, not as a favor. I don’t ask you to be a sport, I’ll say, not because you’re strong, but because what’s right’s right" (171).
Piggy's decision to retrieve his glasses demonstrates his determination. When Piggy insists that "what's right's right," Golding further highlights how Piggy is ruled not only by rational thought, but also how Piggy possesses a moral compass. Piggy's sense of ethics contrasts sharply with Jack's lack of morals and provides an effective foil against his type of leadership.
Let's look at an example.
from Haroun and the Sea of Stories -

“But why do you hate stories so much?” Haroun blurted out, feeling stunned. “Stories are fun…”
“The world, however, is not for Fun,” Khattam-Shud replied. “The world is for Controlling.”
“Which world?” Haroun made himself ask.
“Your world, my world, all worlds,” came the reply. “They are all there to be Ruled. And inside every single story, inside every Stream in the Ocean, there lies a world, a story-world, that I cannot Rule at all. And that is the reason why.”

- page 161
1. Choose the most important part to quote.
2. Paraphrase the rest.
Avoid double quotations whenever possible.
There should not be any "he said/she said"s in your quotation.
Different intro clauses for a different speakers.
Haroun asks, "But why do you hate stories so much?"
In response, Khattam-Shud tells Haroun,
"The world is not for Fun. . . The world is for controlling" (161).
Distinguish between speakers.
Speakers/Thinkers always go before the quote.
Simplify.
Haroun asks, "Why do you hate stories so much?"
“The world, however, is not for Fun,” Khattam-Shud replied. “
The world is for Controlling" (161).

wrong
right
After Haroun asks Khattam-Shud why he hates stories so much, Khattam-Shud tells Haroun that stories are fun, but the world is for "Controlling."
When pressed further, Khattam-Shud explains that "inside every single story, inside every Stream of Ocean, there lies a world, a story-world, that I cannot Rule at all"
(161). Because Khattam-Shud represents a dictatorship form of rule, he sees stories as something dangerous if he cannot control them. Stories threaten his power, and therefore, Khattam-Shud does everything he can to destroy them.
Be sure that you ANALYZE your evidence.
Why does it prove your point?
How does it connect to your thesis?

What words or phrases are significant in the quoted passage?
What do they illustrate about the speaker or situation?
Is a literary device being used? How/why is the author using this literary device here?
How would you integrate this passage into an essay?

What about narration or description?
Examine the context.
Who is doing the acting or thinking?
When he sees the naval officer,
Ralph notices
"a revolver, a row of gilt buttons down the front of the uniform."
Golding goes on to describe
the "cutter, her bows hauled up and held by two ratings. In the stern-sheets another rating held a sub-machine gun" (200).
Golding describes
the boys' savagery as they "leapt on to the beast, screamed, struck, bit, tore. There were no words, and no movements but the tearing of teeth and claws" (153).
What do you do about dialogue?
Khattam-Shud doesn't say "came the reply."
Use ellipses to indicate something has been bowdlerized.

“What can he do more than he has? I’ll tell him what’s what. You let me carry the conch, Ralph. I’ll show him the one thing he hasn’t got.”
Piggy paused for a moment and peered round at the dim figures. The shape of the old assembly, trodden in the grass, listened to him.
I’m going to him with this conch in my hands. I’m going to hold it out. Look, I’m goin’ to say, you’re stronger than I am and you haven’t got asthma. You can see, I’m goin’ to say, and with both eyes. But I don’t ask for my glasses back, not as a favor. I don’t ask you to be a sport, I’ll say, not because you’re strong, but because what’s right’s right. Give me my glasses, I’m going to say—you got to!” (171).
Let's look at another example.
