“Productive work is the central purpose of a rational man’s life, the central value that integrates and determines the hierarchy of all his other values. Reason is the source, the pre-condition of his productive work—pride is the result.”

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. 25-27.
