What quote in the book emphasizes the theme of good vs. evil?

Good and evil is a major theme in the book and I need a quote that really emphasizes and gets the point across. I want to say a good one would be when we first get introduced to Cathy, about there being not only physical monsters but also mental ones. However I feel like it lacks the comparison to good so I was wondering if there were any other points in the book where we can see this emphasis.
