13 George Orwell Quotes

"No one believes more firmly than Comrade Napoleon that all animals are equal. He would be only too happy to let you make your decisions for yourselves. But sometimes you might make the wrong decisions, comrades, and then where should we be?" ~ Animal Farm by George Orwell "Man is the only creature that consumes without producing. He does not give milk, he does not lay eggs, he is too weak to pull the plough, he cannot run fast enough to catch rabbits. Yet he is lord of all the animals. He sets them to work, he gives back to them the bare minimum that will prevent them from starving, and the rest he keeps for himself." ~ Animal Farm by George Orwell All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others. ~ Animal Farm by George Orwell That the choice for mankind lay between freedom and happiness, and that, for the great bulk of mankind, happiness was better. ~ Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell Power is in inflicting pain and humiliation. Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing. ~ Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell In the face of pain there are no heroes. ~ Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell If you loved someone, you loved him, and when you had nothing else to give, you still gave him love. ~ Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell Big brother is watching you. ~ Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell Being in a minority, even a minority of one, did not make you mad. There was truth and there was untruth, and if you clung to the truth even against the whole world, you were not mad. ~ Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell DOUBLETHINK means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one's mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them. The Party intellectual knows in which direction his memories must be altered; he therefore knows that he is playing tricks with reality; but by the exercise of DOUBLETHINK he also satisfies himself that reality is not violated. ~ Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell
