George Orwell Quote: “He had moved from thought to words, and now from words to actions.”
George Orwell Quote: “I am afraid of death. You are young, so presumably you’re more afraid of it than I am. Obviously we shall put if off as long as we can. But it makes very little difference. So long as human beings stay human, death and life are the same thing.”
George Orwell Quote: “Do not imagine, comrades, that leadership is a pleasure! On the contrary, it is a deep and heavy responsibility. No one believes more firmly than Comrade Napoleon that all animals are equal.”
George Orwell Quote: “Modern English, especially written English, is full of bad habits which spread by imitation and which can be avoided if one is willing to take the necessary trouble.”
George Orwell Quote: “Clover was a stout motherly mare approaching middle life, who had never quite got her figure back after her fourth foal.”
George Orwell Quote: “Suddenly his heart seemed to turn to ice and his bowels to water.”

George Orwell Quote: “The horrible thing about the Two Minutes Hate was not that one was obliged to act a part, but that it was impossible to avoid joining in.”
George Orwell Quote: “It struck him that the truly characteristic thing about modern life was not its cruelty and insecurity, but simply it’s bareness, it’s dinginess, it’s listlessness.”
George Orwell Quote: “You had to live – did live, from habit that became instinct – in the assumption that evey sound you made was overheard, and, except in darkness, every moment scrutinized.”
George Orwell Quote: “Looking at the world as a whole, the drift for many decades has been not towards anarchy but towards the reimposition of slavery. We may be heading not for general breakdown but for an epoch as horribly stable as the slave empires of antiquity.”
George Orwell Quote: “I have no wish to take life, not even human life.”
George Orwell Quote: “We are born, we are given just so much food as will keep the breath in our bodies, and those of us who are capable of it are forced to work to the last atom of our strength; and the very instant that our usefulness has come to an end we are slaughtered with hideous cruelty.”
George Orwell Quote: “There are only four ways in which a ruling group can fall from power. Either it is conquered from without, or it governs so inefficiently that the masses are stirred to revolt, or it allows a strong and discontented Middle group to come into being, or it loses its own self-confidence and willingness to govern. These causes do not operate singly, and as a rule all four of them are present in some degree.”
George Orwell Quote: “How can I help seeing what is in front of my eyes? Two and two are four.” “Sometimes, Winston. Sometimes they are five. Sometimes they are three. Sometimes they are all of them at once. You must try harder. It is not easy to become sane.”
George Orwell Quote: “And the bigger the fall, the bigger the joke. It would be better fun to throw a custard pie at a bishop than at a curate.”
George Orwell Quote: “Autobiography is only to be trusted when it reveals something disgraceful.”
George Orwell Quote: “Winston kept his back turned to the telescreen. It was safer; though, as he well knew, even a back can be revealing.”
George Orwell Quote: “Vivid, beautiful hallucinations flashed through his mind. He would flog her to death with a rubber truncheon. He would tie her naked to a stake and shoot her full of arrows like Saint Sebastian. He would ravish her and cut her throat at the moment of climax.”
George Orwell Quote: “He would say that God had given him a tail to keep the flies off, but that he would sooner have had no tail and no flies.”

George Orwell Quote: “This work was strictly voluntary, but any animal who absented himself from it would have his rations reduced by half.”
George Orwell Quote: “One must choose between God and Man, and all “radicals” and “progressives”, from the mildest liberal to the most extreme anarchist, have in effect chosen Man.”
George Orwell Quote: “That was the ultimate subtlety: consciously to induce unconsciousness, and then, once again, to become unconscious of the act of hypnosis you had just performed. Even to understand the word ‘doublethink’ involved the use of doublethink.”
George Orwell Quote: “The words kept coming back to him, statement of a mystical truth and a palpable absurdity.”
George Orwell Quote: “Down in the street little eddies of wind were whirling dust and torn paper into spirals, and though the sun was shining and the sky a harsh blue, there seemed to be no color in anything except the posters that were plastered everywhere.”
George Orwell Quote: “Poverty frees them from ordinary standards of behaviour, just as money frees people from work.”
George Orwell Quote: “If he thinks he floats off the floor, and if I simultaneously think I see him do it, then the thing happens.”

George Orwell Quote: “Better than before, moreover, he realized why it was that he hated her. He hated her because she was young and pretty and sexless, because he wanted to go to bed with her and would never do so, because round her sweet supple waist, which seemed to ask you to encircle it with your arm, there was only the odious scarlet sash, aggressive symbol of chastity.”
George Orwell Quote: “The problem was how to keep the wheels of industry turning without increasing the real wealth of the world. Goods must be produced, but they must not be distributed. And in practice the only way of achieving this was by continuous warfare.”
George Orwell Quote: “In no chess problem since the beginning of the world has black ever won. Did it not symbolise the eternal, unvarying triumph of Good over Evil? The huge face gazed back at him, full of calm power. White always mates.”
George Orwell Quote: “The weariness of the cell is the vigour of the organism.”
George Orwell Quote: “A bird’s wing, comrades,” he said, “is an organ of propulsion and not of manipulation. It should therefore be regarded as a leg.”
George Orwell Quote: “It was not the man’s brain that was speaking; it was his larynx.”
George Orwell Quote: “Even the humblest Party member is expected to be competent, industrious and even intelligent within narrow limits, but it is also necessary that he should be a credulous and ignorant fanatic whose prevailing moods are fear, hatred, adulation and orgiastic triumph.”
George Orwell Quote: “There is a word in Newspeak,’ said Syme, ‘I don’t know whether you know it: duckspeak, to quack like a duck. It is one of those interesting words that have two contradictory meanings. Applied to an opponent, it is abuse; applied to someone you agree with, it is praise.”
George Orwell Quote: “The whole experience of being hit by a bullet is very interesting and I think worth describing in detail.”
George Orwell Quote: “Almost as swiftly as he had imagined it, she had torn her clothes off, and when she flung them aside it was with that same magnificent gesture by which a whole civilization seemed to be annihilated.”
George Orwell Quote: “The Puritanical nonsense of excluding children and therefore to some extent women from pubs has turned these places into mere boozing shops instead of the family gathering places that they ought to be.”
George Orwell Quote: “Why was it that they could never shout like that about something that mattered?”
George Orwell Quote: “You’re only a rebel from the waist downwards,? he told her.”

George Orwell Quote: “The life of an animal is misery and slavery: that is the plain truth.”
George Orwell Quote: “If you have your lower animals to contend with,’ he said, ’we have our lower classes!”
George Orwell Quote: “I suppose we may as well say goodbye.”
George Orwell Quote: “The centuries of capitalism were held to have produced nothing of value. One could not learn history from architecture any more than one could learn it from books.
