In 1945, Animal Farm by George Orwell was released into the world. This novella tells the story of farm creatures overthrowing their harsh human owner, only to see themselves become no better in the end. It animates the events of the Russian Revolution. Here are the top 12 quotes from this thought provoking book:
Are we more than exploiting the earth and animals? Or are we destined to radiate greed until our species comes to an end?
Old Major’s words of wisdom. He dies with hope of revolution and freedom for the future of his kind.
All different, and all connected. We have to stick together.
Dreaming of freedom in songs and chants. Songs send sparks of revolution into the hearts of all the creatures.
Lesson: Do not let glamour distract from the ultimate goal. Do not let the luxuries blind the fact of slavery.
Slaves, no more! Celebrating with smoke and flames…
No one is above anyone else. We are all in this together.
Are they trying to deceive us? Never take answers for their face value. There’s always something else going on behind closed doors…
If the work has meaning, it’s not really work, is it? Who are we working for?
Living under the gun…we are free to speak…but are we, truly?
There must be more to life than lives of labor and suffering, right? Is there more to life than work, sweat, blood, and tears? Does a better world exist?
The greedy, power hungry, and selfish – they are all the same.
