Today’s Name that Book Challenge comes from the required reading list for many schools. These were selected from books I was personally subjected to during my formative years. Two of the books are on my top 50 favorite book list, or at least they would be if I ever sat down to create one. Here are your quotes:
2. “How can I help seeing 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.”
3. “Cleanliness is next to fordliness.”
4. “I need you to be clever, Bean. I need you to think of solutions to problems we haven’t seen yet. I want you to try things that no one has ever tried because they’re absolutely stupid.”
5. “There’s much more. There’s all that goes beyond- all that is Elsewhere- and all that goes back, and back, and back. I received all of those, when I was selected. And here in this room, all alone, I re-experience them again and again. It is how wisdom comes. And how we shape our future.”
Answers will be posted this Friday as well as a big congratulations to whomever gets the most right. Have fun and good luck!
