    "Beyond the fences of this life/ There lies a wondrous hill/ And all good creatures when they die/ Go there to graze their fill."

    "Where an excess of power prevails, property of no sort is duly respected. No man is safe in his opinions, his person, his faculties, or his possessions," President James Madison argued.

    “In wartime, truth is so precious that she should always be attended by a bodyguard of lies," Winston Churchill said.

Squealer's job is to make black seem white, meaning, of course, to make lies appear to be truth, or truth to be lies.
