think Posted February 5, 2009 Share Posted February 5, 2009 (edited) OK, so far, in my journey through, Atlas Shrugged that I am reading: word by word ., sentence by sentence, page by page, chapter by chapter I plan to list in this thread my favorite and significant quotes that effect my life. first up is .,,Quote number one:"She thought: For just a few moments---while this lasts---it is all right to surrender completely---to forget everything and just permit yourself to feel." pp.20 50th anniversary edition PBTo me this has effected my kind of surrender and the way in such that I can surrender. It is for me and here, I will explain that I surrender regularly in the twelve step program I attend. This idea of surrender is the first step ., to give up control of or trying to control anything that I obsess or have a compulsion over or with.Briefly: this statement allows the surrender to feelings of life rather then the surrender to the/a "higher-power" and allows my growth in living over growth in religious devotions that are so unreal to me.Quote number two:"'It seems to me that there are more important things in life then making money.'" pp. 17Here this statement is some how what I have always thought but have not known why or where the idea was first placed in society. I do wonder where/when did we start to think that money is more important than anything else?of course the meaning to the quote title of this thread..,Quote number three:"'don't ask questions nobody can answer.'" pp.23This really follows from the previous question that I had asked.,,Quote number four: --left your you to fill in if you want otherwise I will be back here to this thread when I can to update my favorite quotes as I read Atlas Shrugged Edited February 5, 2009 by think Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
