"Man's self, Ayn Rand held, is his mind or conceptual faculty, the faculty of reason. All man's spiritually distinctive attributes derive from this faculty. For instance, it is reason (man's value judgments) that leads to a man's emotions. And it is reason which possesses volition, the ability to make choices."

From the introduction to Anthem by Ayn Rand.

I read this, and read it again, and again. This short passage explains so much to me.
