From now onwards Animal Farm will engage in trade with neighboring farms: not, of course, for any commercial purpose, but simply in order to obtain certain materials which were urgently necessary. The needs of the windmill must override everything else.
Four legs good, two legs bad!
Never to have any dealings with human beings, never to engage in trade, never to make use of money - had not these been among the earliest resolutions passed at that first triumphant Meeting after Jones was expelled?
I assure you that the resolution against engaging in trade and using money had never been passed, or even suggested. It was pure imagination, probably traceable in the beginning to lies circulated by Snowball.
Napoleans always right. We must be mistaken!
The farm is running out of food, so Napolean tells the animals that Animal Farm is going to start trading with the humans.
The animals are confused because they thought they remembered that they weren't supposed to trade with humans.
Squealer lies to the animals and tricks them into believing that Snowball must have told them that trading with humans was bad when it really isn't.
