It’s a great piece and Orwell expresses himself eloquently. I read it every time I’m feeling defeated and need to press the motivational restart button.
I also often refer back to this quote by Ray Bradbury, “I have never listened to anyone who criticized my taste in space travel, sideshows or gorillas. When this occurs, I pack up my dinosaurs and leave the room.”
This reminds me that not everyone will enjoy reading my writing as much as I’ve enjoyed writing it.
