nothing less than what I earn. That is justice. I don't force anyone to trade with me; I only

"We're on strike against your creed of unearned rewards and unrewarded duties." John Galt
"The world will change when you are ready to pronounce this oath: I swear by my Life and my love of it that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for the sake of mine." John Galt

Love is our response to our highest values — and can be nothing else. -Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged, Part 2, Ch. 4
