Boxer's most famous maxim is:
I will work harder.
As the book moves on, you will find him also use the maxim:
Napoleon is always right.
Each of these are indicative of his character a hard-working and loyal contributor to a society.
Mr. Jones' neglect of the animals needs of food and care(like the cows needing to be milked) caused them to rebel. His neglect arose from a drunken stupor.
