Quotes of the Day

"Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplacable spark. In the hopeless swamps of the not quite, the not yet, and the not at all, do not let the hero in your soul perish and leave only frustration for the life you deserved, but never have been able to reach. The world you desire can be won, it exists, it is real, it is possible, it is yours." Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged

"Men have been taught that it is a virtue to agree with others. But the creator is the man who disagrees. Men have been taught that it is a virtue to swim with the current. But the creator is the man who goes against the current. Men have been taught that it is a virtue to stand together. But the creator is the man who stands alone." - Ayn Rand

As I am laying in bed reading my newly purchased copy of The Fountainhead and listening/watching season 1 episodes of OTH I was reminded of the first quote from Atlas Shrugged. Ayn Rand has quickly become one of my favorite authors. I have not read a book that has moved me like The Fountainhead has in a long time. I highly recommend that you pick up a copy and read it immediately. It will change your life forever.

"If you want my advice, Peter," he said at last, "you've made a mistake already. By asking me. By asking anyone. Never ask people. Not about your work. Don't you know what you want? How can you stand it, not to know?" - Ayn Rand, The Fountainhead
