“I swear by my life and my love of it that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.”
Those men who do not mind being practical enough to sell their brains for money
"To trade by means of money is the code of the men of good will. Money rests on the axiom that every man is the owner of his mind and his effort. Money allows no power to prescribe the value of your effort except the voluntary choice of the man who is willing to trade you his effort in return." Francisco d'Anconia
"Wealth is the product of man’s capacity to think. Then is money made by the man who invents a motor at the expense of those who did not invent it?" Francisco d'Anconia
"I am a trader. I earn what I get in trade for what I produce. I ask for nothing more or
nothing less than what I earn. That is justice. I don't force anyone to trade with me; I only
trade for mutual benefit." John Galt
"We're on strike against your creed of unearned rewards and unrewarded duties." John Galt
"The world will change when you are ready to pronounce this oath: I swear by my Life and my love of it that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for the sake of mine." John Galt
Money is a tool of exchange, which can't exist unless there are goods produced and men able to produce them. Money is the material shape of the principle that men who wish to deal with one another must deal by trade and give value for value. -Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged, Part 2, Ch. 2
Love is our response to our highest values — and can be nothing else. -Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged, Part 2, Ch. 4
You do not have to depend on any material possessions, they depend on you, you create them, you own the one and only tool of production. -Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged, Part 2, Ch. 8
