The candle-buds opened their wide white flowers glimmering under the light that pricked down from the first stars. Their scent spilled out into the air and took possession of the island.
Lord of the Flies
Chapter 3: Huts on the Beach.
Roger gathered a handful of stones and began to throw them. Yet there was a space round Henry, perhaps six yards in diameter, into which he dare not throw. Here, invisible yet strong, was the taboo of the old life. Round the squatting child was the protection of parents and school and policemen and the law.
Lord of the Flies

Life...is scientific....I know there isn't no beast...but I know there isn't no fear, either....Unless we get frightened of people.
Lord of the Flies
