Quotes from Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand

“People think that a liar gains a victory over his victim. What I've learned is that a lie is an act of self-abdication, because one surrenders one's reality to the person to whom one lies, making that person one's master, comdemning oneself from then on to faking the sort of reality that person's view requires to be faked.”
— Hank Rearden
Atlas Shrugged (Part 3, Chapter 3, Page 859)
