“A rational man knows that one does not live by means of ‘luck,’ ‘breaks,’ or favors, that there is no such thing as an ‘only chance’ or a single opportunity, and that this is guaranteed precisely by the existence of competition. He does not regard any concrete, specific goal or value as irreplaceable. He knows that only persons are irreplaceable-only those one loves.”

in Ayn Rand, Objectivism, Writers

-Ayn Rand, “The ‘Conflicts’ of Men’s Interests” in The Virtue of Selfishness
