Three favourite quotes from The Animal Farm (George Orwell)
If you have not read The Animal Farm but intend to in the future (or even if you don’t) here are my three favourite quotes from the book.
THE SEVEN COMMANDMENTS
- Whatever goes upon two legs is an enemy.
- Whatever goes upon four legs, or has wings, is a friend.
- No animal shall wear clothes.
- No animal shall sleep in a bed.
- No animal shall drink alcohol.
- No animal shall kill any other animal.
- All animals are equal.
For once Benjamin consented to break his rule, and he read out to her what was written on the wall. There was nothing there now except a single Commandment. It ran: ALL ANIMALS ARE EQUAL BUT SOME ANIMALS ARE MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS
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.

No, not the Queen! You cannot buy her, decorate her roof with an union jack (in lieu of the crown) and proudly drive her down the streets of..anywhere. Even constructing that sentence was nonsensical. I said you cannot, do not even think about it 🙂
Not the doubledecker, not Mr. Churchil (I am sorry, sir Winston). Not Prince William, nor Katerin, Kate Moss even not Stephen Fry. Not the London Eye, nor the fish and chips. And not the Tea time.
Not even this young gentleman:
No, no, no….
Let me introduce you to one of my loves.
A true baby, a sweetheart, a dream.
The Mini has won many awards over the years, perhaps the most notable include: “Car of the Century” (Autocar magazine 1995), “Number One Classic Car of All Time” (Classic & Sports Car magazine 1996) and “European Car of the Century” in a worldwide Internet poll run by the prestigious Global Automotive Elections Foundation in 1999. The Mini managed second place (behind the Model T Ford) for “Global Car of the Century” in that same poll.
The Mini is not another motor vehicle. It is … a statement. A toy. A delight for the soul and the senses.
Come as you are little thing – old one, new one, One one, Cooper one, red one, blue one, just come my way.
