Three favourite quotes from The Animal Farm (George Orwell)

Attention: spoiler.

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.

Quote 1

THE SEVEN COMMANDMENTS

  1. Whatever goes upon two legs is an enemy.
  2. Whatever goes upon four legs, or has wings, is a friend.
  3. No animal shall wear clothes.
  4. No animal shall sleep in a bed.
  5. No animal shall drink alcohol.
  6. No animal shall kill any other animal.
  7. All animals are equal.

Quote 2

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

Quote 3

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.
