“To the future or to the past, to a time when thought is free, to a time when men are different from one another and do not live alone—to a time when truth exists and what is done cannot be undone:

From the age of uniformity, from the age of solitude, from the age of Big Brother, from the age of doublethink—greetings!”

— Winston Smith’s diary entry, from 1984 by George Orwell
