George Orwell Day, January 21

Orwell, 1933

Orwell, 1933

“If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear”

“Men can only be happy when they do not assume that the object of life is happiness”

“Political language – and with variations this is true of all political parties, from conservatives to anarchists – is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind”

“We are all capable of believing things which we know to be untrue, and then, when we are finally proved wrong, impudently twisting the facts so as to show that we were right”

“There are some ideas so absurd that only an intellectual could believe them”
