His favorite quote is: “Throughout the centuries there were men who took first steps down new roads armed with nothing but their own vision. Their goals differed, but they all had this in common: that the step was first, the road new, the vision unborrowed, and the response they received — hatred. The great creators — the thinkers, the artists, the scientists, the inventors — stood alone against the men of their time. Every great new thought was opposed. Every great new invention was denounced…But the men of unborrowed vision went ahead. They fought, they suffered and they paid. But they won.” Ayn Rand, The Fountainhead
