Rand, Ayn

  • The upper classes are a nation's past; the middle class is its future.

  • Every major horror of history was committed in the name of an altruistic motive. Has any act of selfishness ever equaled the carnage perpetrated by disciples of altruism?

  • Creation comes before distribution--or there will be nothing to distribute.

  • 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.
