Last night I released a new e-book called Wyatt’s Torch: 90 Days To Free Thought. Wyatt’s Torch is a collection of quotes from a few of the works of Ayn Rand to include Anthem and The Fountainhead.
I find the quotes contained within to be inspirational and I thought there would be value in collecting them within an easy to navigate collection for quick reference or daily reading. Each quote has relevance to Objectivism and entrepreneurship. Here are a couple of my favorites:
“Here, on this mountain, I and my sons and my chosen friends shall build our new land and our fort. And it will become as the heart of the earth, lost and hidden at first, but beating, beating louder each day. And word of it will reach every corner of the earth. And the roads of the world will become as veins which will carry the best of the world’s blood to my threshold. And all my brothers, and the Councils of my brothers, will hear of it, but they will be impotent against me. And the day will come when I shall break the chains of the earth, and raze the cities of the enslaved, and my home will become the capital of a world where each man will be free to exist for his own sake.”
-Equality 7-2521, Anthem
And another of my favorites which is an exchange between Ellsworth Toohey and Howard Roark in The Fountainhead:
“Mr. Roark, we’re alone here. Why don’t you tell me what you think of me? In any words you wish. No one will hear us.”
“But I don’t think of you.”
-Ellsworth Toohey & Howard Roark, The Fountainhead
Many other quotes are provided within the e-book. Wyatt’s Torch: 90 Days To Free Thought PDF e-book is available for purchase within the sidebar of this blog.
