Personal Quote:

There was once a time when College Students studied facts, knowledge and human greatness. Now they study nothingness, ignorance, and the fool, the madman, the blind beggar, and the witch. See more »

Trivia:

Never learned to drive. Her friends and associates believed that this was on purpose, so she would always depend on her husband Frank to do the driving, leaving him in control of that part of their relationship. 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.
