This modern classic explores the idea that man's ego is the source of human progress. Follow the story of young architect Howard Roark, whose integrity is unyielding, as he navigates love and societal condemnation. With a philosophy that continues to challenge readers today, this groundbreaking novel is a must-read for anyone seeking thought-provoking literature.
I think for me one of the core things that is very applicable to my life today is the virtue of independence - is the vision, you know, if you know the idea of Howard Roark who is the architect in The Fountainhead, who has a vision for what he wants to accomplish and, there's some time in the book when he is frustrated in his career because people don't want to build the type of buildings he wants to build. And he's given a choice, a difficult choice, to compromise his integrity or to essentially go out of business. And he has to go and take a job working in a quarry. And for me that model has a lot of resonance. When I think about what I'm doing and the way I'm doing it is more important to me than any amount of money or anything like that because it's my artistic work. – source
