"What I actually am, Mr. Rearden, is a policeman. It is a policeman's duty to protect men from criminals Рcriminals being those who seize wealth by force. ... But when robbery becomes the purpose of the law... then it is an outlaw who has to become a policeman." - Ragnar Danneskjöld

"The charming aspect of Christmas is the fact that it expresses good will in a cheerful, happy, benevolent, non-sacrificial way. One says: “Merry Christmas”—not “Weep and Repent.” And the good will is expressed in a material, earthly form—by giving presents to one’s friends, or by sending them cards in token of remembrance . . . ." - Ayn Rand
