  •  I'm not a fan of "Atlas Shrugged" but there's a (5+ / 0-)

    quote from Ayn Rand's non-fiction work that I do like.

    Individual rights are not subject to a public vote; a majority has no right to vote away the rights of a minority; the political function of rights is precisely to protect minorities from oppression by majorities (and the smallest minority on earth is the individual).
    I was criticized and ridiculed once for citing that quote, not for what it says, but because of the author.

    There is no existence without doubt.
