“All them other kids,” the fat boy went on. “Some of them must have got out. They must have, mustn’t they?”
“What I mean is . . . maybe it’s only us”
"What about thte littluns? Someone's got to look out for them"
This quote shows how Piggy is being civilised and is showing genuine concern about the other kids to Ralph. This also shows his kind nature.

The conch represents a bit of the boys pasts; civilisation. The conch was used to call meetings . This quote is spoken by Simon and the meeting is where the boys talk about the beast. When Simon suggests that the beast is actually one of the boys, they laugh it off but Golding is showing that human evil exists. Simon is the first character to see the beast as a human rather than a creature.
This quote was said by Ralph and it shows that Ralph is showing his civilisation by looking out for the little kids and making sure to bring it up in the discussion about who needs looking after.
