This book is an anthology of 180 quotes from George Orwell and 50 Facts about George Orwell. “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.” “Big Brother is... More > watching you.” “War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.” “Every intelligent boy of sixteen is a Socialist. At that age one does not see the hook sticking out of the rather stodgy bait.” “The only 'ism' that has justified itself is pessimism.” “Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.” Orwell had a real-life fascination with rats. Orwell chose his pen name, "George Orwell" because "George" was the patron saint of England and "Orwell" was the name of a river he liked. Orwell’s mother, born Ida Mabel Limouzin, was of English-French background. Orwell was a heavy smoker for most of his life. In his will, Orwell requested that no biography be written about his life. Orwell spoke several languages, including French, Spanish, English, Latin and Greek.< Less

The year is 1949. The place Los Angeles. Two world-famous novelists, George Orwell and Aldous Huxley, meet at Huxley's Hollywood home. What follows is an imagined conversation between these two... More > titans when they discuss their novels. And much, much more. Behold the mystery. What is the secret of the enduring impact of '1984' and 'Brave New World?' What are the key themes and ideas? Many believe that both works are a nightmarish vision of a future that is now upon us. But, as the title of this book suggests, that is not how Orwell and Huxley themselves viewed their own work. For '1984' and 'Brave New World' are, supremely, fictionalized commentaries on trends in society that engaged both writers in the decade before and the one after the Second World War. So they can be read more as warnings rather than prophecies. But what Orwell and Huxley have to say if it appals also fascinates and enthrals at one and the same time.< Less

At that age one does not see the hook sticking out of the rather stodgy bait.” “Myths which are believed in tend to become true.” “On the whole, human beings want to be good, but not too good, and not quite all the time.” “Power is not a means, it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship.” “The only 'ism' that has justified itself is pessimism.” “Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.”< Less
