What motto does Old Major give the animals in "Animal Farm"?

Whatever goes upon two legs is an enemy. Whatever has four legs or wings is a friend.
All men are enemies. All animals are comrades.
'All men are enemies. All animals are comrades.'
The simplistic attitude of Old Major shows that the concept of communism is indeed difficult to put into practice, as the farm animals will soon learn:
"...we are deluding ourselves if we think we are closer to those revolutionary ideas of justice, brotherhood, and equality than were the citizens of Stalinist Russia."
"...such descent from idealism to totalitarianism is inevitable in any violent revolution."
in enotes' 'Animal Farm Essays and Criticism'
What is interesting is that all this works out quite differently in the end. In the final chapter, the term "comrade" as a way for the animals to address each other is forbidden, and the "pigs" have taken on all the characteristics of the "men" who were enemies. So the animals final state may be worse than their first. They have new leaders who could care less about them, and they have been forbidden to be comrades to each other. History may be a circle, but in their case it seems to be a descending spiral.
"all men are enemies. All animals are comrades"
According to Animal Farm Written by George Orwell on page 6 and 7,
" All men are enemies. All Animals are comrades."
" Whatever goes upon two legs, is an enemy. Whatever goes upon four legs, or has wings, is a friend."
they should be united and no one should be above other animals.

well first of all napoleon is very greety nd wants to destroy animal farm nd then he tries to pik it bak up nd his motto is ''all humans are enemies and all animals are comrades'' but he breaks that motto when he makes a treaty with the humans to sell timber.
all humans are enimes
all animals should not be like humans but the irony is that they already uses human characterstic such as talking and such as writing the 7 commandements .
All animals are equal
4 legs good, 2 legs bad
Four legs good. Two legs bad.
