Ayn Rand Quote

“Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark. In the hopeless swamps of the not quite, the not yet, and the not at all, do not let the hero in your soul perish and leave only frustration for the life you deserved, but never have been able to reach. The world you desire can be won, it exists, it is real, it is possible, it is yours.” – Ayn Rand (1905-1982)

    As the saying goes when you are going through something just go on and it will eventually die down. Be optimistic and always see the best of life.

    Really uplifting message. I agree. Once you visualize success, it becomes easier to attain just by pushing forward and following your dream.

    I remember the saying “… no matter how dark the beginning, anyone who strives can reach for the sun…”. This is what came to my mind when I read this quote. Thanks.

    I went through the quote and my favorite part is..”do not let the hero in you perish”..We all have that sleeping giant in us and we need to awaken the sleeping giant..whatever we believe ,we can achieve if we work hard..
