Ayn Rand
“Everything bad comes from the mind, because the mind asks too many questions. It is blessed to believe, not to understand.”
Ayn Rand, The Fountainhead

Ayn Rand
“As a matter of fact, one can feel some respect for people when they suffer. They have a certain dignity. But have you ever looked at them when they’re enjoying themselves? That’s when you see the truth. Look at those who spend the money they’ve slaved for—at amusement parks and side shows. Look at those who’re rich and have the whole world open to them. Observe what they pick out for enjoyment. Watch them in the smarter speak-easies. That’s your mankind in general. I don’t want to touch it.”
Ayn Rand, The Fountainhead

Friedrich Nietzsche
“No one can construct for you the bridge upon which precisely you must cross the stream of life, no one but you yourself alone.”
Friedrich Nietzsche

Ayn Rand
“Every form of happiness is private. Our greatest moments are personal, self-motivated, not to be touched. The things which are sacred or precious to us are the things we withdraw from promiscuous sharing.”
Ayn Rand, The Fountainhead

Lawrence M. Krauss
“Reality doesn’t owe us comfort.”
Lawrence M. Krauss, A Universe from Nothing: Why There Is Something Rather than Nothing
