1984 Quote Reflection

Ryan Clark

Never Again

"Never again will you be capable of love, or friendship, or joy of living, or laughter, or curiosity, or courage, or integrity. You will be hollow. We shall squeeze you empty, and then we shall fill you with ourselves."

Thought police caught Winston and Julia and have decided they were going to teach them a lesson. They didn't want Winston and Julia to love each other anymore. Winston and Julia were both tortured until the thought police were sure that they did not love each other anymore. They knew they didn't love each other when they told them to torture the other instead of them because they said they would never betray each other but they did. The thought police also made sure that they no longer believed in what they once did before, but they believed in everything the thought police said and trusted in Big Brother. Winston and Julia were completely different people when released and have no love or feelings for each other anymore.
