Another quote, another comment…

Good evening, my blog!

Skipping all the formalities, I’ll get right to the point. Today I’m going to comment on another quotation from the novel called “Animal Farm” by George Orwell (what a surprise! :O)

Firsly, let me intoduce the greatest passage from the greatest book which contains the greatest quote.

Never had the farm — and with a kind of surprise they remembered that it was their own farm, every inch of it their own property — appeared to the animals so desirable a place. As Clover looked down the hillside, her eyes filled with tears. If she could have spoken her thoughts, it would have been to say that this was not what they had aimed at when they had set themselves years ago to work for the overthrow of the human race. These scenes of terror and slaughter were not what they had looked forward to on that night when old Major first stirred them to rebellion. If she herself had had any picture of the future, it had been of a society of animals set free from hunger and the whip, all equal, each working according to his capacity, the strong protecting the weak, as she had protected the lost brood of ducklings with her foreleg on the night of Major’s speech. Instead — she did not know why — they had come to a time when no one dared speak his mind, when fierce, growling dogs roamed everywhere, and when you had to watch your comrades torn to pieces after confessing to shocking crimes. There was no thought of rebellion or disobedience in her mind. She knew that even as things were they were far better off than they had been in the days of Jones, and that before all else it was needful to prevent the return of the human beings. Whatever happened she would remain faithful, work hard, carry out the orders that were given to her, and accept the leadership of Napoleon. But still, it was not for this that she and all the other animals had hoped and toiled. It was not for this that they had built the windmill and faced the pellets of Jones’s gun. Such were her thoughts, though she lacked the words to express them.” — from Chapter VII

So, my quote is:

“But still, it was not for this that she and all the other animals had hoped and toiled. It was not for this that they had built the windmill and faced the pellets of Jones’s gun.”

Well, that’s enough for today, and I’ll see you in my next blogpost! Btw, we are back on distance learning :(

That’s all for today, folks!🙌🏻

And as always, see ya later in my next blog post!😸 Take care, wash your hands and wear a mask!😷

P.S. check out this cool picture I found! On them you can see who the characters of the novel symbolize! (that’s very rough, isn’t it?)
