Finally Equality 7-2521 discovers the word "I" through his reading of the old scripts. Rand couldn't resist doing some direct sermonizing in this chapter, and these are some of her important quotes (spoken through her protagonist, of course):
"I am the warrant and the sanction."
"It is my will which chooses, and the choice of my will is the only edict I must respect."
"My happiness is not the means to any end. It is the end."
"I ask none to live for me, nor do I live for any others. I cover no man's soul, nor is my soul theirs to cover."
