Lord of the Flies - William Golding

This quote was added by austinasing
His voice rose under the black smoke before the burning wreckage of the island; and, infected by that emotion, the other little boys began to shake and sob too. In the middle of them, with a filthy body, matted hair, and an unwiped nose, Ralph wept for the end of innocence, the darkness of man's heart, and the fall through the air of the true, wise friend called Piggy.
