    From Live Journal: Atlas Shrugged: Hank/Francisco. I could almost swear this *is* canon. Jun. 2nd, 2008 at 1:02 AM Allow me to demonstrate. Hank Rearden and Francisco d'Anconia. Both of them are in love with the same woman -- Dagny Taggart (who, we might observe, is herself scarcely female in anything but physical appearance). Hank owns a steel mill. Francisco owns copper mines. In...

    知心海马猴少女 (我于火力飓风中诞生)

    From the first catch-phrases flung at a child to the last, it is like a series of shocks to freeze his motor, to undercut the power of his consciousness. 'Don't ask so many questions, children should be seen and not heard!'–'Who are you to think? It's so, because I say so!'–'Don't argue, obey!'–'Don't try to understand, believe!'–'Don't rebel, adjust!–'Don't stand out, belong!'–'Don't str...

    知心海马猴少女 (我于火力飓风中诞生)

    Dagny regretted at times that Nat Taggart was her ancestor. What she felt for him did not belong in the category of unchosen family affections. She did not want her feeling to be the thing one was supposed to owe an uncle or a grandfather. She was incapable of love for any object not of her own choice and she resented anyone's demand for it.

    Lucia (Passionately Curious)

    Atlas Shrugged Francisco could do anything he undertook, he could do it better than anyone else, and he did it without effort. There was no boasting in his manner and consciousness, no thought of comparison. His attitude was not: “I can do it better than you,” but simply: “I can do it.” What he meant by doing was doing superlatively. “I don’t know what sort of motto the d’Anconias hav...

    Zii (11.18)

    Henry Rearden "He wondered why this was a motive that had no power to impel him. Throughout his life, whenever he became convinced that a course of action was right, the desire to follow it had come automatically. What was happening to him?—he wondered. The impossible conflict of feeling reluctance to do that which was right—wasn't it the basic formula of moral corruption? To recognize one...

    "He shrugged and smiled - he was alive for a moment and it was the strangest smile she had ever seen: it held secret amusement, and heartbreak, and an infinite bitterness. He answered: “Who is John Galt?”"

    在读前几章的时候,有些地方不得不强迫自己才能继续读下去,因为觉得兰德塑造的正面人物太过符号化了——世上怎么可能有这样的人呢?完全与常情不符嘛。 不过渐渐好像有点理解兰德的想法和书里的哲学了。第七章有一段写得很有力度,标题也非常巧妙,叫做《剥削者与被剥削者》。 个人觉得这一章真正开启了书的主题——资本主义和社会主义,不同的意识形态下,到底什么是道德?资本主义的追求收益只看效率是否邪恶?社会主义的劫..

    "I couldn't have stood four years of nothing but lectures." You have to live by your own knowledge and judgment. Not to be taken seriously—an immovable certainty within her kept repeating— pain and ugliness are never to be taken seriously. They considered knowledge superfluous and judgment inessential. The capacity for unclouded enjoyment, she thought, does not belong to i...
