[Book Quote Tuesday] “There was truth and there was untruth.”

Myra here.

It is that time of the week again where we share a book quote that seemed particularly striking for us.

For the month of April, our book quote theme is: TRUTH.

The Philippine election is coming up in a month (yes, I am a registered voter), and so I thought of devoting the entire month to TRUTH, especially since fabrications, deceptions, manufactured versions of alternate realities are being peddled as so-called ‘truths.’

I read George Orwell’s 1984 (Amazon | Book Depository) in 2016. It was positively chilling – and the fact that people seem to prefer living in an Orwellian universe filled with untruths boggle my mind. Here’s to advocating for truths, even if we are a minority of one.

Have you read 1984 yet? Do share your thoughts if you have read it.
