Simon Quotes

Three of the best book quotes from Simon
  1. #1
    “What I mean is . . . maybe it’s only us”
  2. #2
    “Simon, walking in front of Ralph, felt a flicker of incredulity—a beast with claws that scratched, that sat on a mountain-top, that left no tracks and yet was not fast enough to catch Samneric. However Simon thought of the beast, there rose before his inward sight the picture of a human, at once heroic and sick.”
  3. #3

    “I mean the way things are. They dream. You can hear ‘em. Have you been awake at night?” Jack shook his head.
    “They talk and scream. The littluns. Even some of the others. As if—”
    “As if it wasn’t a good island.”
    Astonished at the interruption, they looked up at Simon’s serious face.
    “As if,” said Simon, “the beastie, the beastie or the snake-thing, was real. Remember?”
