“Man’s basic vice, the source of all his evils, is the act of unfocusing his mind, the suspension of his consciousness, which is not blindness, but the refusal to see, not ignorance, but the refusal to know.”

in Ayn Rand, Morality, Writers

-Ayn Rand, “The Objectivist Ethics” in The Virtue of Selfishness. New York: Signet Centennial Edition, 2005 re-print of 1964 edition, pp. 27-28.
