Dale Carnegie quotes, “All men have fears, but the brave put down their fears and go forward, sometimes to death, but always to victory.” Death is a natural phenomenon that every man has to face. Although humanity can try to prolong life as much as they can, death will eventually come. Prince Prospero’s act of isolating and secluding himself from his countrymen together with “a thousand of his knights and dames of his court” in an attempt to escape death while his people are suffering and dying from the gruesome and fatal plague is a clear manifestation of his cowardice.
When Jack killed a pig, he tortured it by cutting it open, and cutting its head off. Being the sick and twisted person he is, he decides that it will be a sacrifice for the “Beastie”. We now know that the Beastie does not exist, but this was more than a sacrifice. It was a symbol to show that the boys have completely lost their civilized part of them, and they are now being true ‘savages’, and becoming more and more evil by the minute.

In my opinion, these lines were the most memorable in the book. They have reminded me the true meaning of friendship and how much a person can care about somebody else.
When morals no longer apply, the savage heart appears. When the boys are in their enraged frenzy they chant ‘Kill the beast, slice his throat, spill his blood’. When they hear a rustling in the woods they quickly attack the being by tearing it apart with their bear hands and biting at it with their mouths. They did not realize that this was actually Simon and during the comotion Simon accidentally trips and falls over a cliff to his death. This leads to anarchy and can relate to our society as war, greed and fear.
