Anastasia and 782 other people liked Jason's review of Atlas Shrugged:
Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand
"Ayn Rand makes my eyes hurt. She does this, not by the length of her six hundred thousand word diatribe, but rather by the frequency with which she causes me to roll them. Do you want to know what I’ve learned after spending nearly two months read..." Read more of this review »
Anastasia and 90 other people liked Brendan's review of The Fountainhead:
The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand
"As literature, I found the book dry, predictable, and overwrought. As philosophy, I found it circular, wholly unfounded, and completely contradicting reality.

This book is like a net set for unsuspecting minds. It breaches their defenses with a twi..." Read more of this review »
Anastasia and 478 other people liked Ryan's review of The Fountainhead:
The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand
"This book is the equivalent of a drunk, eloquent asshole talking to you all night at a bar. You know you should just leave and you could never explain later why you didn't, but you just sit there listening to the guy ramble on. It's all bullshit,..." Read more of this review »

Vladimir Mayakovsky
“Listen!
If stars are lit
It means there is someone who needs it,
It means someone wants them to be,
That someone deems those specks of spit
Magnificent!”
Vladimir Mayakovsky, Listen!

Fyodor Dostoyevsky
“The world says: "You have needs -- satisfy them. You have as much right as the rich and the mighty. Don't hesitate to satisfy your needs; indeed, expand your needs and demand more." This is the worldly doctrine of today. And they believe that this is freedom. The result for the rich is isolation and suicide, for the poor, envy and murder.”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov

Friedrich Nietzsche
“Life is at an end where the kingdom of God begins”
Friedrich Nietzsche, Twilight of the Idols/The Anti-Christ

Stephen Hawking
“One, remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Two, never give up work. Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it. Three, if you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is there and don't throw it away.”
Stephen Hawking

Ernest Hemingway
“The real reason for not committing suicide is because you always know how swell life gets again after the hell is over.”
Ernest Hemingway
