„If people cannot write well, they cannot think well, and if they cannot think well, others will do their thinking for them.“
— George Orwell English author and journalist 1903 - 1950
Attributed to Orwell by John H. Bunzel, president of San Jose State University, as reported in Phyllis Schlafly, The Power of the Positive Woman (1977), p. 151<!-- Bunzel's attribution is also quoted in The Presbyterian Journal, Volume 35 (1976), p. 55, but GoogleBooks only has a snippet -->; but not found in Orwell's works or in reports contemporaneous with his life. Possibly a paraphrase of Orwell's description of the rationale behind Newspeak in 1984.
