   Man is only a reed, the weakest in nature ; but he is a thinking reed. There is no need for the whole universe to take up arms to crush him : a vapor, a drop of water is enough to kill him.

The universe knows nothing of this.

□ 우리에게 "인문학"을 이야기하는 책

인간은, 모든 인간은 다른 사람의 목적에 부합하는 수단이 아니라 자기 자신을 위해 존재한다. 인간을 스스로를 위해 살아야 한다. 다른 사람 때문에 자신을 희생해서도, 다른 사람에게 희생을 요구해서도 안 된다. 인간은 자신의 이익을 위해 일해야 하며, 자신의 행복 달성을 자기 삶의 가장 높은 도덕적 목표로 삼아야 한다. - 에인 랜든
