“In a fundamental sense, stillness is the antithesis of life. Life can be kept in existence only by a constant process of self-sustaining action. The goal of that action, the ultimate value which, to be kept, must be gained through its every moment, is the organism’s life.”

in Ayn Rand, Objectivism, Writers

-Ayn Rand, “The Objectivist Ethics” in The Virtue of Selfishness. New York: Signet Centennial Edition, 2005 re-print of 1964 edition, pp.17.
