Transcript of Anthem Chapter Project
by Gabriella Frey Anthem Chapter I Quotes Chapter II Quotes 1. "You are beautiful, Liberty 5-3000." This quote is significant because it is one of the first signs of affection that Equality shows toward Liberty.
2. "Your eyes are not like the eyes of any among men." This quote shows how Liberty is beginning to see just how different Equality is from everyone else.
3. "And we thought that we would not let the Golden One be sent to the palace." This quote exemplifies the longing that Equality has to keep Liberty safe. Chapter III Quotes 1. "It is a sin to write this." This quote is significant to the novel because it is the first true sign of Equality's rebellion.
2. "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. Amen." This quote is important because it is basically the motto that the book revolves around.
3. "The will of our brothers be done." This quote was Equality's way of telling everyone that he wasn't going to let their decision bother him. 1. "We, Equality 7-2521, have discovered a new power of nature. And we have discovered it alone, and we are alone to know it." This quote is talking about how Equality has discovered electricity and it is important because this becomes the main reason that he has to leave the world of Anthem.
2. "The secrets of this earth are not not for all men to see, but only for those who will seek them." This quote is saying that there are only a few people who can be trusted with new discoveries. And that the ones who seek them are the ones that should know them.
3. "No single one can posses greater wisdom than the many Scholars that are elected by all men for their wisdom. Yet we can. We do." Equality expresses that even though everyone thinks that only the Scholars can do amazing things, he has discovered something far more amazing than anything that they could. Chapter IV Quotes 1. "They looked straight into our eyes and they held their head high and they answered: The Unconquered." This is in reference to the scenario when Liberty renames Equality. It is important because she has seen that he is truly unconquered.
2. "Our dearest one, do not obey us." This quote shows that Equality loves Liberty and therefore, does not want to get her into trouble.
3. "We shall bring the water to you." This quote exemplifies how Liberty is Equality's "life-saver" if you will. When she brings him water it symbolizes that he needs her just as he needs water to live. Chapter V quotes 1. " We could not see our body nor feel it, and in that moment nothing existed save our two hands over a wire glowing in a black abyss." This quote portrays how Equality feels when he realizes how significant his discovery of electricity is.
2. "And it can be made to grant us anything if we but choose to ask." I think that this quote gives a small glimpse of the freedom that Equality is able to have through his discovery.
3. "We wonder, for the first time in our life, what we look like." No man has ever seen himself, because there is no need, but Equality is beginning to wonder about his looks. I think that this shows once again, how different he is from everyone else because he actually cares, and dares to think what no man has ever thought. Chapter VI Quotes 1. "Take our brother Equality 7-2521 to the palace of corrective detention. Lash them until they tell." This quote comes up when Equality is caught in his tunnel. It is significant because even though he was beaten and locked up, he pressed on with his goals.
2. "Then, tonight, we knew that we must escape. For tomorrow the World Council of Scholars is to meet in our city." This quote is important in the novel because it shows how fearless he was.
3. "Tomorrow, you will take us back into your fold and we shall be an outcast no longer. Tomorrow we shall be one of you again." This quote is showing the hope that Equality has for the future. Chapter VII Quotes 1. "We have no bed now, save the moss, and no future, save the beasts." This quote shows how Equality has lost a small portion of his hope and how he is starting to think that maybe he will die alone."
2. "And if this should lighten the toil of men, then it is a great evil, for men have no cause to exist save in toiling for other men." This quote reflects how the Council believes that all men are to work for one another.
3. "You fools! You fools! You thrice-damned fools!" This exemplifies how passionate Equality is about his plans. He is so dead set on success that he is unafraid to call a member of the council a fool. Chapter VIII Quotes 1. "We wanted to leap to our feet, as we have had to leap every morning of our life, but we remembered suddenly that no bell had rung and that there was no bell to ring anywhere." This quote resembles the freedom that Equality feels in the Uncharted Forest. Because there is no bell ringing he is free to wake and sleep when she chooses.
2. "Our arms stretched out of their own will, and our body whirled and whirled, till it raised a wind to rustle through the leaves of the bushes." This quote symbolizes the uncontrollable joy that Equality feels once he is free.
3. "And we thought suddenly that there was a great satisfaction to be found in the food which we need and obtain by our own hand." This exemplifies how no matter how much other people do for you, when you can finally rely on your own resources it can set you free in a way. Chapter IX Quotes 1. "We did not wish to speak, for we needed to words to remember that which has happened to us." Equality is saying that the recent events in his life have been so amazing and happy that he will remember them his entire life even if he doesn't write them down.
2. "We have followed you and we shall follow you wherever you go. If danger threatens you, we shall face it also. If it be death, we shall die with you. You are damned and we wish to share your damnation." In this quote, Liberty expresses that no matter what come their way, she wants to be with Equality because she loves him so much. That is unconditional love.
3. "There is no life for men, save in useful toil for the good of all their brothers. But we lived not, when we toiled for our brothers, we were only weary." Even though everything and everyone in Equality's society told him that living for his brothers was how it had to be, and all his brothers excepted that, Equality only felt as if there was something missing. Chapter X Quotes 1. "We found garments, and the Golden One gasped at the sight of them. For they were not white tunics, not white togas; they were of all colors, no two of them alike." When Liberty saw that the clothing wasn't white she was astonished because she was used to everyone wearing the same thing.
2. "The letters on their pages were so small and even that we wondered at the men with such handwriting." In this quote, Equality has found books that were typed on a printer. This is important because they don't have printers in his society.
3. "We did this work alone, for no words of our could take the Golden One away from the big glass which is not glass." The Golden One is admiring her beauty. This is a big deal because she has never seen herself before. Chapter XI 1. "I AM. I THINK. I WILL." Equality has discovered the word to describe his individual self. This is significant because in the society of Anthem no one is allowed to use that word. They don't even think that such a word exists.
2. "Whatever road I take, the guiding star is within me; the guiding star and the lodestone which point the way. They point in but one direction. They point to me." This quote is significant because Equality has finally realized that HE is the hero. And that HE is the master of his own life and will not be controlled by any other man.
3. "I owe nothing to my brothers, nor do I gather debts from them. I ask none to live for me, nor do I live for any others. I covet no man's soul, not is my soul theirs to covet." This quote is saying that Equality is no longer going to worry about trying to do things and live for his brothers. And that he does not wish to be like his brothers. And they do not wish to be like him. Chapter XII Quotes 1. "And when I understood this word, the book fell from my hands, and I wept, I who had never known tears." Equality finally finds out the word to use for himself and is overwhelmed by this discovery. This is significant because he had never heard of that word before.
2. "She looked at me and the first words she spoke were: I love you." This is significant because the last time that Liberty tried to tell Equality that she loved him she was frustrated because she said "we love you" so she was happy when she could use the word "I".
3. "The word which can never die on this earth, for it is the heart of it and the meaning and the glory. The sacred word: EGO." This is significant because before, they were not allowed to know there self worth. But now they can.
