“A mind is healthy to the extent that its method of functioning is such as to provide man with the control over reality that the support and furtherance of his life require. The hallmark of this control is self-esteem.”

in Nathaniel Branden, Psychology, Writers

-Nathaniel Branden, “Mental Health versus Mysticism and Self-Sacrifice” in Ayn Rand, The Virtue of Selfishness (New York: Signet Centennial Edition, 2005 re-print of 1964 edition), p. 40.
