Don’t Let Them Get to You

“In the name of the best within you,
do not sacrifice this world to those who are its worst.
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…

…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.”

Ayn Rand, 1905-1982
Russian-born American Writer and Novelist
