Below are some of the famous quotes of Orwell:

  • Perhaps one did not want to be loved so much as to be understood.
  • Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.
  • War is Peace; Freedom is slavery, Ignorance is strength.
  • Every generation imagines itself to be more intelligent than the one that went before it and wiser than the one that comes after it.
  • The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again, but already it was impossible to say which was which.
  • But if thought corrupts language, language can also corrupt thought.
  • Doublethink means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one’s mind simultaneously and accepting both of them.
  • Until they become conscious, they will never rebel, and until after they have rebelled, they cannot become conscious.
  • Being in the minority, even in a minority of one, did not make you mad. There was the truth, and there was untruth, and if you clung to the truth even against the whole world, you were not mad.
  • Writing a book is a horrible, exhausting struggle, like a long bout with some painful illness. One would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven on by some demon whom one can neither resist nor understand.
  • The essence of being human is that one does not seek perfection.
  • It’s a beautiful thing, the destruction of words. 
  • Perhaps a lunatic was simply a minority of one.
