Peter Keating: "Do you always have to have a purpose? Do you always have to be so serious? Can't you ever do things without reason, just like everybody else? You're so serious, so old. Everything's important with you. Everything's great, significant in some way, every minute, even when you keep still. Can't you ever be comfortable--and unimportant?" | Howard Roark: "No."
~ Ayn Rand Quotes
”This above all: to thine own self be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.”
Personal Logia (Words)
The Fountainhead and Anthem,
we as readers get to experience through Ayn Rand's heroic characters, the individual's power to rely on himself rather than be pushed by events or other people. The Ancient Greeks revered man's ability to reason, Ralph Waldo Emerson defended individualism and self-reliance, and Aldous Huxley spoke about the dangers of conformity. Although we do have to conform at times, we should always be mindful of the importance of individuality and the cost of sacrificing our beliefs for the sake of personal or material gain.
~ Drakakis, 2009
