Lord of the flies quotes- Piggy

His name “Piggy” Piggys nickname relates to the pigs on the island who are hunted down by Jack and his hunters. He is like the pigs because of his physique due to him being fat, and he is like them in the fact that he is also weak.
Piggy and his attitudes to science and technology “Life is scientific” Piggy favours the capabilities of science and technology, and tries to find solutions to problems where he can which makes him a practical person. He dismisses the Beast and the fear associated with it as unscientific.
Piggy and his organisation “How can you expect to be rescued if you don’t put first things first and act proper?”From the very beginning Piggy becomes very organised in ensuring he takes a list of names and call a meeting to address issues. He believes in tackling certain obstacles in a certain order to ensure good results are obtained.
Piggy’s attitude to Civilisation vs Savagery “Which is better, to have laws and agree, or to hunt and kill?Piggy is a very strong supporter of democracy and opposes any form of savagery, even early in the book he disapproves of any form of disorder amongst the boys (“Like a crowd of kids”). He respects the Conch as he can speak his mind, whereas before his opinion would be ignored (“I got the conch. I got a right to speak”) and he is the one to suggest to Ralph that the Conch should be used to call a meeting (“We can use this to call the others. Have a meeting”).
