“To the glory of mankind, there was, for the first and only time in history, a country of money—and I have no higher, more reverent tribute to pay to America, for this means: a country of reason, justice, freedom, production, achievement. For the first time, man’s mind and money were set free, and there were no fortunes-by-conquest, but only fortunes-by-work, and…there appeared the real maker of wealth…the self-made man.”

in America, Ayn Rand, Writers

-Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged
