Thought for the day: On suffering…

‎"Men have been taught that their first concern is to relieve the suffering
of others. But suffering is a disease. Should one come upon it, one tries
to give relief and assistance. To make that the highest test
of virtue is to make suffering the most important part of life…
The creator is not concerned with disease, but with life. Yet
the work of the creators have eliminated one form of disease after
another, in man’s body and spirit, and brought more relief from
suffering than any altruist could ever conceive…"

            - Ayn Rand, The Fountainhead

  1. Ayn Rand missed the whole thing, the meaning of life. Why ? Because she never had any children. She didn't know what is a Creator.

    Go figure.
