  1. His only crime was to apologise for an action which every right thinking person should applaud.

    “How many fingers, Winston?”
    “Four! Stop it, stop it! How can you go on? Four! Four!”
    “How many fingers, Winston?”
    “Five! Five! Five!”
    “No, Winston, that is no use. You are lying. You still think there are four. How many fingers, please?”
    “Four! Five! Four! Anything you like. Only stop it, stop the pain!”
    Abruptly he was sitting up with O’Brien’s arm round his shoulders. He had perhaps lost consciousness for a few seconds. The bonds that had held his body down were loosened. He felt very cold, he was shaking uncontrollably, his teeth were chattering, the tears were rolling down his cheeks. For a moment he clung to O’Brien like a baby, curiously comforted by the heavy arm round his shoulders. He had the feeling that O’Brien was his protector, that the pain was something that came from outside, from some other source, and that it was O’Brien who would save him from it.
    “You are a slow learner, Winston,” said O’Brien gently.
    “How can I help it?” he blubbered. “How can I help seeing what is in front of my eyes? Two and two are four.”
    “Sometimes, Winston, sometimes they are five. Sometimes they are three. Sometimes they are all of them at once. You must try harder. It is not easy to become sane.”
