Ayn Rand on the motto of every writer

"A sentence in Atlas Shrugged that is applicable to all rational people, but particularly to writers, is the one where I say that Dagny “regarded language as a tool of honor, always to be used as if one were under oath—an oath of allegiance to reality.” in regard to words, this should be the motto of every writer." ~ Ayn Rand
