To be free

"Anthem" by Ayn Rand has many themes portrayed throughout the plot, a few examples being that pride makes a man happy to work, knowledge needs to be encouraged for better lifestyles, freedom is when a  man has distinction from his brothers, and that happiness can only come from within yourself. 

"So much is still to be learned! So long a road lies before us..." (Rand 54).
"And we thought suddenly that there was a great satisfaction to be found in the food which we need and obtain by our own hand. And we wished to be hungry again and soon, that we might know again this strange new pride in eating" (Rand 79).
"My happiness is not the means to any end. It is its own goal" (Rand 95).
"To be free, a man must be free of his brothers. That is freedom. This and nothing else" (Rand 101).
