Sjove citater: Orwell og Animal Farm

11.04.2020 | litteratur

Endeligt endnu et sjovt citat fundet i George Orwells Animal Farm. Dog på engelsk, men på side 31 i en eller anden udgave i bogen:

FOUR LEGS GOOD, TWO LEGS BAD, was inscribed on the end wall of the barn, above the Seven Commandments and in bigger letters. When they had once got it by heart, the sheep developed a great liking for this maxim, and often as they lay in the field they would all start bleating "Four legs good, two legs bad! Four legs good, two legs bad!" and keep it up for hours on end, never growing tired of it.

Og igen (dumme får) på side 49 i samme udgave af bogen:

But suddenly the dogs sitting around Napoleon let out deep, menacing growls, and the pigs fell silent and sat down again. Then the sheep broke out into a tremendous bleating of "Four legs good, two leg bad!" which went on for nearly a quarter of an hour and put an end to any chance of discussion.

Humlen er et at fårene ikke kan kapere The seven commandments. Så istedet får de banket dette simple budskab ind i knolden. Lidt sjovt er det da. Især hvis man ser bort fra bogens udvikling.
