Aesthetics Quotes

According to Ayn Rand, a creating individual’s ego is the fountain head of his/her creative achievement. When she stress on the point ‘ego’, it doesn’t really mean having an ego bigger than Mount Everest, in mind and getting jealous about everything when one couldn’t accomplish what others have done. Instead, it means, a creator has to keep up a honesty to his creating will and that ego, the belief in his own creativity, is the fountainhead of his aesthetical achievements. No good creator can stand others distorting the aesthetics of his work because he values his creation greater than his own life.
