These are the some of the many themes that Rand includes in her novella, Anthem, to give her messages and lessons to the reader so they could understand Ayn Rand's purpose of each theme and symbol in her novella.
"Their body was straight and thin as a blade of iron. Their eyes were dark and hard and glowing, with no fear in them..shining and wild..."(Rand 39).
We are one in all and all in one.
There are no men but only the great WE,
One, indivisible and forever." (Rand 19).
"And if you are not needed by your brother men, there is no reason for you to burden the earth with your bodies" (Rand 22).
"And yet there is no shame in us and no regret. We say to ourselves that we are a wretch and a traitor. But we feel no burden upon our spirit and no fear in our heart..." (Rand 37).
