What is your favorite quote/discourse from an Ayn Rand book?

Recently, mine has been Ellsworth Toohey's speech from Fountainhead - We've fixed the coin. Heads - collectivism, and tails - collectivism. Fight the doctrine which slaughters the individual with a doctrine that slaughters the individual. Give up your soul to a council - or give it up to a leader. But give it up, give it up, give it up...Kill the individual. Kill man's soul...Observe the state of the world as of the present moment. Do you still think I'm crazy, Peter?
