Personal Quote:

Self respect is something that can't be killed. The worst thing is to kill a man's pretense at it. See more »

Trivia:

Once worked in the wardrobe department at RKO Pictures, for which she was paid $25.00 a week. See more »

Trademark:

In her books, characters often give very long speeches, sometimes stretching over dozens of pages, explaining their philosophy of life. Rand used this as an opportunity to elaborate Objectivism, the philosophic system she is credited with creating, but also to showcase her view of other philosophic systems whose characteristic concepts conflicted with those of Objectivism.
