Job #1 Line Illuminator
Anthem (Pages 39-40).
"WE ARE ONE IN ALL AND ALL IN ONE. THERE ARE NO MEN BUT ONLY THE GREAT
WE, ONE, INDIVISIBLE AND FOREVER."
This quote means there are no individuals there is
only everyone. Because there are no individuals and there is only everyone, all
people are alike. Everyone has the same personality, jobs, and lives, because
there are not supposed to be individual. In addition, everyone is treated the
same. People are not allowed to have their own thoughts, feelings, or emotions,
they are not allowed to do things that make them different or seem different
than others. They cannot do something
out of the ordinary that makes them stand out.
An example of this in the book is that people are not allowed to talk about
this quote, or they would be sentenced to the Palace of Corrective
Detention. Only the elders are allowed
to speak of it. That is because everyone else does not have the authority to
talk about it or to think about it. They
are only to go along with whatever is told.
Anthem (Page 57)
"We are nothing. Mankind is all. By the grace of our brothers are we
allowed our lives. We exist through, by and for our brothers who are the State.
This quote means individuals don't exist for themselves,
they exist for other people. This shows that people have to live off of other
people that are superior over them and are not taught to lean how to live for
themselves or take care of themselves. People are dependent in life on those
who exist above them.
In the book, this phrase is what everybody said in
their sleeping rooms, because they are supposed to, and their elders made them
say this in there sleeping rooms. That is because the people are made to say
this phrase, because they are made to.
