Excerpt from John Galt's Speech as written by Ayn Rand in Atlas Shrugged

"Is it ever proper to help another man? No, if he demands it as his right or as a duty that you owe him. Yes, if it's your own free choice based on your judgment of the value of that person and his struggle. This country wasn't built by men who sought handouts. In its brilliant youth, this country showed the rest of the world what greatness was possible to Man and what happiness is possible on Earth."

entropy [en-truh-pee
—noun

4. a doctrine of inevitable social decline and degeneration.

*** We must each work to care for and provide for ourselves and our families in order to be in a position to care for those who are TRULY helpless and in need.

What screws us up most in life is the picture in our heads of how life is supposed to be.

How true! If we buy into the Hollywood and Madison Avenue prescription of success (status) and happiness or the romantic fairy tales prevalent in literature we forget what is truly important.
