Notable Quotable

Every record has been

destroyed or falsified,

every book rewritten,

every picture

has been repainted,

every statue and

street building

has been renamed,

every date

has been altered.

And the process is

continuing day by day

and minute by minute.

History has stopped.

Nothing exists except

an endless present in

which the Party is

always right.

by George Orwell,
1903 – 1950
