17 Quotes from Ayn Rand on Living a Life of Individuality

Photographs of Ayn Rand often show her puffing on a cigarette held in an elegant holder, eyes wide and focused, ready for a philosophical fight. One of America’s most fearless and, at times, controversial philosophers and writers, Ayn Rand rocked the mid-20th century intellectual world with her thoughts on individualism and objectivity.

Her philosophy of Objectivism has at its heart a celebration of man’s mind and his/her ability to live as a free individual, rejecting all forms of irrationalism and staying true to reason, integrity and rationality. Pro-capitalism, anti-religion, Ayn Rand was a force to be reckoned with and her multi-million selling novels continue to scatter her ideas around the world.

Ayn Rand was born in Russia and a certain Russian proverbs springs to mind when reading her work; “it’s better to be slapped with the truth than kissed with a lie.”
