" I can accept anything, except what seems to be the easiest for most people: the half-way, thealmost, the just-about, the in- between."
Roark: "Independence is the only gauge of human virtue and value.What a man is and makes of himself-- not what he has orhasn't done for others."
"Civilization is the progress toward a society of privacy. The savage's whole existence is public, ruled by the laws of his tribe. Civilization is the process of setting man free from men."
"Kill reverence and you've killed the hero in man."
"It had to be said: the world is perishing from an orgy of self-sacrifice."
"Man's ego is the fountainhead of human progress."
"Great men can't be ruled."
"I do not recognize anyone's right to one minute of my life."
"Self-sacrifice?... It is precisely the self that can not and must not be sacrificed."
"Don't work for my happiness, my brothers--show me yours--show me that it is possible--show me your achievement--and the knowledge will give me courage for mine."
