"I have, let’s say, sixty years to live. Most of that time will be spent working. I’ve chosen the work I want to do. If I find no joy in it, then I’m only condemning myself to sixty
years of torture. And I can find the joy only if I do my work in the best way possible to me. But the best is a matter of standards—and I set my own standards. I inherit
nothing. I stand at the end of no tradition. I may, perhaps, stand at the beginning of one.”
- Ayn Rand, The Fountainhead The Works of Toh Yiu Kwong Architects
