Two Nice Anti-Authoritarian Quotes

All Animals Are
But Some Animals Are
More Equal Than Others

— George Orwell, *Animal Farm*
(the book was rejected by such eminent
publishing figures as Victor Gollancz,
Jonathan Cape & T. S. Eliot at Faber & Faber)


Find out just what people will submit to, & you have
found the exact amount of injustice & wrong which
will be imposed upon them; & these will continue
until they are resisted with either words or blows, or
with both.

The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance
of those whom they oppress.

— Frederick Douglass
