“Just as man cannot survive by any random means, but must discover and practice the principles which his survival requires, so man’s self-interest cannot be determined by blind desires or random whims, but must be discovered and achieved by the guidance of rational principles. This is why the Objectivist ethics is a morality of rational self-interest–or of rational selfishness.”

in Ayn Rand, Objectivism, Writers

-Ayn Rand, The Virtue of Selfishness
