Famous quotes containing the word orwell:

    Politically, Swift was one of those people who are driven into a sort of perverse Toryism by the follies of the progressive party of the moment.
    —George Orwell (1903–1950)

    Twelve voices were shouting in anger, and they were all alike. No question, now, what had happened to the faces of the pigs. The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.
    —George Orwell (1903–1950)

    The essence of being human is that one does not seek perfection, that one is sometimes willing to commit sins for the sake of loyalty, that one does not push asceticism to the point where it makes friendly intercourse impossible, and that one is prepared in the end to be defeated and broken up by life, which is the inevitable price of fastening one’s love upon other human individuals.
    —George Orwell (1903–1950)
