I need to know why this quote from chapter 6 is important, and why it's relevant to this chapter! :)

This is an interesting quote. Simon knew that the only "beast" on the island lay inside the human soul. Simon interprets humanity with the capacity for good and evil. Humans are capable of kindness but possess a sickness that draws them to darkness. It is a paradox that Simon struggles with throughout the novel.
