Ayn Rand's Last Lecture, 1981

Love is your response to your values in another person.
--Ayn Rand

"In Ayn Rand’s final public talk, she exhorts a group of businessmen to stop apologizing, and stop supporting anti-capitalist institutions: 'It is a moral crime to give money to support ideas with which you disagree. It is a moral crime to give money to support your own destroyers.' See how the force of her ideas captivated an audience and drew a tumultuous response."

The best way to help the poor is not to be one of them.
--Reverend Ike
