Quote #1
""You haven't got the conch. Here." "I mean- how about us? Suppose the beast comes when you're all away. I can't see proper, and if I get scared-" Jack broke in, contemptuously. "You're always scared." "I got the conch-" "Conch! Conch!" shouted Jack. "We don't need the conch anymore. We know who ought to say things. What good did Simon do speaking, or Bill, or Walter? It's time some people knew they've got to keep quiet and leave deciding things to the rest of us." Ralph could no longer ignore his speech. The blood was hot in his cheeks. "You haven't got the conch" he said. "Sit down" Jack's face went so white that the freckles showed as clear, brown flecks. He licked his lips and remained standing." (pg 101-102)

Quote #3
"Simon, walking in front of Ralph, felt a flicker of incredulity- a beast with claws that scratched, that sat on a mountaintop, that left no tracks and yet was not fast enough to catch Sam 'N Eric. However Simon thought of the beast, there rose before his inward sight the picture of a human at once heroic and sick." (pg 103)
