Quotes from George Orwell ( 1903 - 1950 )

In a time of universal deceit – telling the truth is a revolutionary act.

Political language … is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give the appearance of solidity to pure wind.

Freedom is the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.

War against a foreign country only happens when the moneyed classes think they are going to profit from it.

The nationalist not only does not disapprove of atrocities committed by his own side, but he has a remarkable capacity for not even hearing about them.

The very concept of objective truth is fading out of the world. Lies will pass into history.
