"If the Party could thrust its hand into the past and say this or that even, it never happened—that, surely, was more terrifying than mere torture and death" (Orwell 126)


I found this quote in my packet that my teacher had made for us a couple years ago. I hope it helps! Her quote may be on a different page though, the book pages vary.

This quote is personification because it gives the Party human characteristics ("thrusting its hand" is the characteristic.)
