Seeing as I gave you a whole slew of clues I hope you got that yesterday’s quote was from Rand’s The Fountainhead. Like I said, most of Rand’s books are wicked boring-–looking at you here, Atlas Shrugged–but I thought this one was legit. I think part of what makes her stuff suck so bad is that her protagonists are super one dimensional. They’re too totally perfect, you know? Howard Roark doesn’t barely have a fault, and John Gault is even worse. But hey, maybe a puppet that preaches Objectivist ideals was what she was shooting for, right?
Here’s your tough guy quote of the week. It’s not exactly from a tough guy, but it is from somebody who ends up showing how tough they are.
“I hope you’re pleased with yourselves. We could have been all killed — or worse, expelled.”
