"No single one can possess greater wisdom than the many Scholars who are elected by all men for their wisdom. Yet we can. We do. We have fought against saying it, but now it is said. We do not care. We forget all men, all laws and all things save our metals and our wires. So much is still to be learned! So long a road lies before us, and what care we if we must travel it alone!" (Rand 54).
"I shall choose only such as please me, and them I shall love and respect, but neither command nor obey. And we shall join our hands when we wish, or walk alone when we so desire. For in the temple of his spirit, each man is alone. Let each man keep his temple untouched and undefined. Then let him join hands with others if he wishes, but only beyond his holy threshold" (Rand 96).
"Hundreds upon hundreds of years ago men knew secrets which we have lost. And we thought: 'This is a foul place. They are damned who touch the things of the Unmentionable Times.' But our hand which followed the track, as we crawled, clung to the iron as if it would not leave it, as if the skin of our hand were thirsty and begging of the metal some secret fluid beating in its coldness" (Rand 32-33).
"We are one in all and all in one. There are no men but only the great WE, One, indivisible and forever" (Rand 19).
