12 Quotes from George Orwell's 1984!

 

Hi Readers! It has been a while. This month I am only sticking to reading the books that I own. It is taking surprisingly a lot longer to read actual books than reading e-books. So far, I have read 5 books & hope to read at least a couple more. I finally read George Orwell’s 1984. It took me a while to complete it because it isn’t the kind of book I usually read. But it definitely is THE BOOK that everyone should read.

There are so many themes in that novel & so much content. It is a political satire written in 1949 but a lot of the things said in the book apply even today. There are so many concepts that are surely a bit exaggerated but they are so scary if they ever become real. In my opinion, 1984 should be mandatory reading in education. This book is just so important and so beyond me that I wouldn’t feel right reviewing it. Instead, here are some of the brilliant quotes from 1984!


"What you say or do doesn’t matter: only feelings matter. If they could make me stop loving you – that would be the real betrayal."

"If you loved someone, you loved him, and when you had nothing else to give, you still gave him love."

 



"Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past."

"But if thought corrupts language, language can also corrupt thought."

 



"If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face—for ever."

"Doublethink means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one's mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them."

 



"There was truth and there was untruth, and if you clung to the truth even against the whole world, you were not mad."

"To die hating them, that was freedom."

 

Until next time,
