The Best Quote From Ayn Rand's Anthem

The Anthem, by Ayn Rand, is full of quotable lines. But this set of lines is in my view the most interesting:

"For the battle they lost can never be lost. For that which they died to save can never perish. Through all the darkness, through all the shame of which men are capable, the spirit of man will remain alive on this earth. It may sleep, but it will awaken. It may wear chains, but it will break through. And man will go on. Man, not men."
