Quote of the Day: "Yes!"


"What you feel in the presence of a thing you admire is just one word - 'Yes.' The affirmation, the acceptance, the sign of admittance. And that 'Yes' is more than an answer to one thing, it's a kind of 'Amen' to life, to the earth that holds this thing, to the thought that created it, to yourself for being able to see it...
...."There is no affirmation without the one who affirms. In this sense, everything to which you grant your love is yours."

~ Ayn Rand, from a character in her novel The Fountainhead

  1. In a novel you can make stuff up and get away with it but back in the real world I think the statement is deeply flawed because it is so subjective. Industrial genocide was no doubt inspiring to many in the past and the many went to bed after a wee cognac content that all was well in the world and they were doing god's work because their peers, who loved the work as much as they did, told them so.
