It Is Up To You

“Learn to value yourself, which means to fight for your happiness”

-Ayn Rand

Ayn is better known for the following quote, “Who is John Galt?”, from her fourth and final book,  Atlas Shrugged

There has been a lot of chatter recently about George Orwell’s 1984 being very prophetic regarding recent goings-on.

Those of you who have read Atlas Shrugged know that Ayn Rand may have had a crystal ball back in 1957 when she wrote the 1,168-page book, which depicts much of what is going on in our Country these days.

  2. I read it in high school at the suggestion of a teacher. I have never been able to bring myself to reread it because I didn’t want to change how much I loved it. Love it. One of the few books I read and felt like I really absorbed.

    It took me a whole summer of riding the bus to and from work (summer high school job) to read that book! I found a copy of it last summer at a book swap – going to read it again!

  4. A great quote, which possibly encapsulates Rand’s greatest contribution to human thought: that happiness is yours, to make possible, here and now.
