On this day in 1949, George Orwell published 1984
This happens to be one of my favorite books and also happens to have an awesome opening line:
“It was a bright cold day in April and the clocks were striking thirteen.”
More excellent quotes from this tremendously fantastic read! I literally could go on and on with these, so here are just a few!
“War is Peace.
Freedom is Slavery.
Ignorance is Strength.”
“If you want to keep a secret, you must also hide it from yourself.”
“We shall meet in a place where there is no darkness.”
“It’s a beautiful thing, the destruction of words.”
“Nothing was your own except the few cubic centimetres inside your skull.”
and of course…
“Big Brother is watching you.”
