Beautiful Lines by Ayn Rand..!!

Everytime I read ‘Atlas Shrugged’ by Ayn Rand, I learn some new things, understand some a little bit better but a few lines always leave me speechless…!! These are few of them…!!

Page 351-352,

What she felt in that moment contained, as one nameless part of it, the knowledge of the beauty in the posture of his body as he held her, as they stood in the middle of a room high above the lights of the city.

What he knew, what he had discovered tonight, was that his recaptured love of existence had not been given back to him by the return of the desire for her-but that the desire has returned after he had regained his world, the love, the value and the sense of this world-and that the desire was not an answer to her body, but a celebration of himself and of his will to live.

-Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand

The statement so beautifully defines..that if you do not love yourself…you cannot love anybody else…!! You have to first appreciate yourself and be comfortable in your own skin…to appreciate others and gain respect.
