1984 - George Orwell

Author: 

In a sense it told him nothing that was new, but that was part of the attraction.
It said what he would have said, if it had been possible for him to set his scattered thoughts in order..
It was the product of a mind similar to his own, but enormously more powerful, more systematic, less fear-ridden.
The best books, he perceived, are those that tell you what you know already.

'By itself,' he said, 'pain is not always enough.
There are occasions when a human being will stand out against pain, even to the point of death.
But for everyone there is something unendurable--something that cannot be contemplated.
Courage and cowardice are not involved.
If you are falling from a height it is not cowardly to clutch at a rope.
If you have come up from deep water it is not cowardly to fill your lungs with air.
It is merely an instinct which cannot be destroyed.
