What George Orwell said

Just some amazing quotes from an astute man.......

·         During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.
·         Freedom is the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.
·         Good writing is like a windowpane.
·         To an ordinary human being, love means nothing if it does not mean loving some people more than others.
·         The essence of being human is that one does not seek perfection.
·         He who controls the present, controls the past. He who controls the past, controls the future.
·         Political language. . . is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.
·         The aim of a joke is not to degrade the human being, but to remind him that he is already degraded.
·         In our age there is no such thing as 'keeping out of politics.' All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia.
·         To accept civilization as it is practically means accepting decay.
