Actor Edmond O'Brien - Winston Smith"From the table drawer he took out a penholder, a bottle of ink, and a thick, quarto-sized blank book with a red back and a marbled cover.”

" 1984 - first edition 1949The thing that he was about to do was to open a diary. This was not illegal (nothing was illegal, since there were no longer any laws), but if detected it was reasonably certain that it would be punished by death, or at least by twenty-five years in a forced-labour camp. Winston fitted a nib into the penholder and sucked it to get the grease off. The pen was an archaic instrument, seldom used even for signatures, and he had procured one, furtively and with some difficulty, simply because of a feeling that the beautiful creamy paper deserved to be written on with a real nib instead of being scratched with an ink-pencil. Actually he was not used to writing by hand. Apart from very short notes, it was usual to dictate everything into the speakwrite which was of course impossible for his present purpose. He dipped the pen into the ink and then faltered for just a second. A tremor had gone through his bowels. To mark the paper was the decisive act. In small clumsy letters he wrote: April 4th, 1984.”

  1984 — George Orwell  
  Big Brother Is Watching You"Ur bordslådan tog han fram ett pennskaft, en flaska bläck och en tjock bok i kvartformat med röd rygg och marmorerad pärm. Den hade tomma sidor.”

"1984Vad han nu tänkte göra var börja på en dagbok. Detta var inte olagligt (ingenting var olagligt, eftersom det inte längre fanns några lagar), men om det upptäcktes var det någorlunda säkert att det medförde dödsstraff, eller åtminstone tjugofem års arbetsläger. Winston stack en stålpenna i skaftet och sög på den för att få bort oljan. Pennan var ett urmodigt redskap som sällan användes ens för namnunderskrifter, och han hade skaffat sig en, i smyg och inte utan svårighet, helt enkelt för att det kändes som om det vackra lena papperet förtjänade skrivas på med en riktig stålpenna hellre än rafsas på med kulspets. I själva verket var han ovan att skriva för hand. Frånsett helt korta anteckningar var det brukligt att diktera allting i talskrivare, vilket naturligtvis var uteslutet i närvarande fall. Han doppade pennan i bläcket, och så tvekade han en kort stund. Han kände en skälvning i magen. Att sätta pennan till papperet var den avgörande handlingen. Med liten, tafatt stil skrev han: 4 april 1984
