Alan Greenspan on Ayn Rand's writing style

Alan Greenspan once gave this eloquent complement to Ayn Rand — “You do with words what Rachmaninoff does with music. Rachmaninoff’s compositions are complex; he combines so many elements in his music that one has to stretch one’s mind to hear them all at once. You always try to do the same in writing.”
