"I want to be loved for myself – not for anything I do or have or say or think. For myself – not for my body or mind or words or works or actions."
"But then...what is yourself?"
"If you loved me, you wouldn't ask it." (188.8.131.52-5)
"I was here. I was waiting for you. I love you, Dagny. I love you more than my life, I who have taught men how life is to be loved." (184.108.40.206)
