“But if thought corrupts language, language can also corrupt thought.” ― George Orwell, 1984

“You are a slow learner, Winston."

"How can I help it? How can I help but see what is in front of my eyes? Two and two are four."

"Sometimes, Winston. Sometimes they are five. Sometimes they are three. Sometimes they are all of them at once. You must try harder. It is not easy to become sane.”

Don't miss George Carlin's Save the Planet ! And there are many more!

The secretary thought a moment, and then replied, “Everything but my earrings.”
