Ralph's declining mental state

Lord Of The Flies by William Golding

Quote 1;

"Ralph felt a kind of affectionate reverence for the conch, even though he had fished the thing out of the lagoon himself" (78)

Quote 2;

"'The rules!' shouted Ralph. 'You're breaking the rules!'

'Who cares?'

Ralph summoned his wits.

'Because the rules are the only thing we've got!'" (91)
