1 Then Napoleon stood up to reply.
2 Mr. Pilkington, of Foxwood, had stood up, his mug in his hand.
3 Truth to tell, Jones and all he stood for had almost faded out of their memories.
4 For a minute or two they stood gazing at the tatted wall with its white lettering.
5 About half the animals on the farm rushed out to the knoll where the windmill stood.
6 Unable at first to speak, they stood gazing mournfully at the litter of fallen stone.
7 Napoleon stood sternly surveying his audience; then he uttered a high-pitched whimper.
8 And for a little while they halted in sorrowful silence at the place where the windmill had once stood.
Animal Farm By George OrwellGet Context In Chapter VIII
9 Napoleon, with the dogs following him, now mounted on to the raised portion of the floor where Major had previously stood to deliver his speech.
10 But just at this moment Napoleon stood up and, casting a peculiar sidelong look at Snowball, uttered a high-pitched whimper of a kind no one had ever heard him utter before.
11 Nevertheless, the sight of Napoleon, on all fours, delivering orders to Whymper, who stood on two legs, roused their pride and partly reconciled them to the new arrangement.
12 When the animals had assembled in the big barn, Snowball stood up and, though occasionally interrupted by bleating from the sheep, set forth his reasons for advocating the building of the windmill.
13 One afternoon in late February a warm, rich, appetising scent, such as the animals had never smelt before, wafted itself across the yard from the little brew-house, which had been disused in Jones's time, and which stood beyond the kitchen.
14 He walked heavily round the shed, looked closely at every detail of the plans and snuffed at them once or twice, then stood for a little while contemplating them out of the corner of his eye; then suddenly he lifted his leg, urinated over the plans, and walked out without uttering a word.
15 They had made their way on to the little knoll where the half-finished windmill stood, and with one accord they all lay down as though huddling together for warmth--Clover, Muriel, Benjamin, the cows, the sheep, and a whole flock of geese and hens--everyone, indeed, except the cat, who had suddenly disappeared just before Napoleon ordered the animals to assemble.
