Ambition, p.114

But Boxer would not listen. He had, he said, only one real ambition left- to see the windmill well under way before he reached the age of retirement.


Superannuated, p.115

As yet no animal had actually retired on pension, but of late the subject had been discussed more and more. Now that the small field beyond the orchard had been set for barley, it was rumoured that a corner of the large pasture was to be fenced off and turned into a grazing-ground for superannuated animals.


Wafted, p. 117

One afternoon in late February a warm, rich, appetizing smell scent, such as the animals had never smelt before, wafted itself across the yard from the little brew-house, which had been disused in Jones’s time, and which stood beyond the kitchen.








Proclaimed, p.118

In April, Animal Farm was proclaimed a Republic, and it became necessary to elect a president.




Contemptuously, p. 119
