"She had never heard that symphony before, but she knew that it was written by Richard Halley. She recognized the violence and the magnificent intensity. She recognize the style of the theme; it was a clear, complex melody--at a time when no one wrote melody any longer."

My love for this book finally outgrew my personal blog, so then this happened. It's a culmination of quotes, art, fandom and other Rand-related things.
It's also an attempt to connect all of us Atlas Shrugged fans all over tumblr, so please check out the AS Blogroll to find other like minded tumblr-ites. If you want to be added to the list, just send an ask. <3
"Googly eyes are the goal of existence, and googly eyes are not to be stumbled upon, but to be achieved, and the act of treason is to let its vision drown in the swamp of the moment’s torture."

20 Day Easy & Hard Challenge

I also had no ideas for machinery but then this fab lady was a genius and was like, “Hey, you should do an Atlas Shrugged piece.” Of course I said hell yeah to that, so here is a Taggart Transcontinental train with a texture slapped on to sort of make it look a bit more interesting.
My impression of a great book, expressed in the painting.
It can. Get more people to read Atlas Shrugged.
