[[AC:Quotes from ''Atlas Shrugged'']]
-> ''"Do not hide behind the cowardly evasion that man is born with free will, but with a “tendency” to evil. A free will saddled with a tendency is like a game with loaded dice."''
-->-- '''John Galt'''

-> ''"To fear to face an issue is to believe the worst is true."''
-->-- '''John Galt'''

-> ''"For twelve years, you have been asking: Who is John Galt? [[AuthorFilibuster This is John Galt speaking.]] I am the man who loves his life. I am the man who does not sacrifice his love or his values. I am the man who has deprived you of victims and thus has destroyed your world, and if you wish to know why you are perishing-you who dread knowledge-I am the man who will now tell you. [...] 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."''
-->-- '''John Galt'''. His entire speech can be found [[http://amberandchaos.com/?page_id=106 here.]]

->''"When the thugs of Europe’s People’s States snarl that you are guilty of intolerance, because you don’t treat your desire to live and their desire to kill you as a difference of opinion-you cringe and hasten to assure them that you are not intolerant of any horror. When some [[BarefootPoverty barefoot bum]] in some pesthole of UsefulNotes/{{Asia}} yells at you: How dare you be rich-you apologize and beg him to be patient and promise him you’ll give it all away."''
-->-- '''John Galt'''
