Quotes from Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand

“A circle... is the movement proper to physical nature... but the straight line is the badge of man, the straight line of a geometrical abstraction that makes roads, rails and bridges, the straight line that cuts the curving aimlessness of nature by a purposeful motion from a start to an end.”
— Dagny Taggart
Atlas Shrugged (Part 2, Chapter 8, Page 609)
