George Orwell birthday, Thursday June 25, 2015, Eric Blair, Orwell quotes, He warned us when will people listen, Thank God for the life of George Orwell
“What I have most wanted to do throughout the past ten years is to make political writing into an art,”
“My starting point is always a feeling of partisanship, a sense of injustice. When I sit down to write a book, I do not say to myself, ‘I am going to produce a work of art’. I write it because there is some lie that I want to expose, some fact to which I want to draw attention, and my initial concern is to get a hearing.”…George Orwell essay 1946
“We are being lied to on a scale unimaginable by George Orwell.”…Citizen Wells
Today, June 25, 2015, is George Orwell’s birthday.
I began quoting Orwell’s “1984” on a regular basis early in 2008 after watching and experiencing the tactics of the Obama camp.
Thank God for the life of Eric Blair, George Orwell.
Here are some of his quotes.
“Big Brother is watching you.”
“All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.”
“Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.”
“In a time of universal deceit – telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”
“We have now sunk to a depth at which restatement of the obvious is the first duty of intelligent men.”
“Early in life I had noticed that no event is ever correctly reported in a newspaper.”
“The very concept of objective truth is fading out of the world. Lies will pass into history.”
“If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.”
“Freedom is the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.”
“Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.”
“So much of left-wing thought is a kind of playing with fire by people who don’t even know that fire is hot.”
