"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
Watch out. 🙊
A piece I did for an art history class. We had to pick a subject we weren’t comfortable with and a style we weren’t used to creating. I chose the political subject of Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged”. For the medium, I used liquid and pen ink. If I were to do it again, I definitely would. This isn’t my strongest piece from my semester, but I’m no less proud of it simply due to what I learned when I was making this.
“In the name of the values that keep you alive, do not let your vision of man be distorted by the ugly, the cowardly, the mindless in those who have never achieved his title. Do not lose your knowledge that man’s proper estate is an upright posture, an intransigent mind and a step that travels unlimited roads. Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark, in the hopeless swamps of the approximate, the not-quite, the not-yet, the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish, in lonely frustration for the life you deserved, but have never been able to reach. Check your road and the nature of your battle. The world you desired can be won, it exists, it is real, it is possible, it’s yours.”
