    "Thousands of years ago, the first man discovered how to make fire. He was probably burned at the stake he had taught his brothers to light. He was considered an evildoer who had dealt with a demon mankind dreaded. But thereafter men had fire to keep them warm, to cook their food, to light their caves. He had left them a gift they had not conceived and he had lifted darkness off the earth. Cent...

    “But you see," said Roark quietly, "I have, let’s say, sixty years to live. Most of that time will be spent working. I’ve chosen the work I want to do. If I find no joy in it, then I’m only condemning myself to sixty years of torture. And I can find the joy only if I do my work in the best way possible to me. But the best is a matter of standards—and I set my own standards. I inherit nothi...

    He had always wanted to write music, and he could give no other identity to the thing he sought. If you want to know what it is, he told himself, listen to the first phrases of Tchaikovsky's First Concerto--or to the last movement of Rachmaninoff's Second. Men have not found the words for it nor the deed nor the thought, but they have found the music. Let me see that in one single act of man on...

    Happiness? But that is so middle-class. What is happiness? There are so many things in life so much more important than happiness.

    (Mollary:) ...... In any given hour, they kill some part of themselves. They change, they deny, they contradict--and they call it growth.

    Henry Cameron made a mistake: he loved his work. That was why he fought. That was why he lost. 今天心情是极好的,damned!

    Loveian (1+1=2)

    Men hate passion, any great passion. Henry Cameron made a mistake : he loved his work. That was why he fought. That was why he lost. “Don’t worry. They’re all against me. But I have one advantage: they don’t know what they want. I do.” Exaltation comes from the consciousness of being guiltless, of seeing the truth and achieving it, of living up to one’s highest possibility, of knowing no ...

    "Well,I could say that I must aspire to build for my client the most comfortable, the most logical, the most beautiful house that can be built.I can say that I must try to sell him the best I have and also teach him how to know the best. I could say it,but I won't.Because I don't intend to build in order to serve or help anyone.I don't intend to build in order to have clients. I intend to have ...

    I still can't believe they just had sex. Did I miss anything? It's a greatest sex description ever in books I ever read, way better than 村上春树's naked jerking off. There is a follow-up of Howard's emotional description as below: They had been united in an understanding beyond the violence, beyond the deliberate obscenity of his action, had she meant less to him, he would not have taken her a...   (8回应)

    this is the motive and purpose of my writing; the projection of an ideal man. The portrayal of a moral ideal, as my ultimate literary goal, as an end in itself--to which any didactic, intellectual or philosophical values contained in a novel are only the means.這就是我的寫作動機和目的:‘理想人物的形象化’。對道德理想的描寫,作為我的終極文學目標——其本身是書中所含的任何說教的、理性或哲學的價值...
