'I will work harder."
This quote is said by Boxer several times throughout the book.
"Working for a Living" by Huey Lewis and the News
The song "Working for a Living" by Huey Lewis and the news applies to Boxer's work mentality. The speaker of the song talks about how he'll be working until the day he dies, which is the attitude Boxer took on, even though he one day hoped for retirement. The speaker also mentions a raise that he is supposed to get, and this is much how Boxer and the other animals felt about the "raises" in rations that they were often promised. The chorus also states, "I'm taking what they giving, cause I'm working for a living." In Animal Farm, the animals didn't have much choice other than to do exactly what the pigs told them in order to get their rations, and maybe their reward of retirement.

The Battle of the Windmill was an important scene in Animal Farm...
