- So you think that money is the root of all evil? Have you ever
asked what is the root of money? Money is a tool of exchange, which
can't exist unless there are goods produced and men able to produce
them. Money is the material shape of the principle that men who wish to
deal with one another must deal by trade and give value for value.
Money is not the tool of the moochers, who claim your product by tears
or of the looters, who take it from you by force. Money is made
possible only by the men who produce. Is this what you consider evil?Money demands that you sell, not your weakness to men's stupidity, but your talent to their reason.
“The source of man’s rights is not divine law or congressional law, but the law of identity. A is A—and Man is Man. Rights
are conditions of existence required by man’s nature for his proper survival. If man is to live on earth, it is right
for him to use his mind, it is right
to act on his own free judgment, it is right
to work for his values and to keep the product of his work. If life on earth is his purpose, he has a right
to live as a rational being: nature forbids him the irrational.”

"I swear by my life, and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine."
"You seek escape from pain. We seek the achievement of happiness. You exist for the sake of avoiding punishment. We exist for the sake of earning rewards. Threats will not make us function; fear is not our incentive. It is not death that we wish to avoid, but life that we wish to live."
