'Some day I'll find out whether I'm an unusual specimen of humanity in that my instincts and reason are so inseparably one, with the reason ruling the instincts. Am I unusual or merely normal and healthy? Am I trying to impose my own peculiarities as a philosophical system? Am I unusually intelligent or merely unusually honest? I think this last. Unless—honesty is also a form of superior intelligence.'- Ayn Rand, May 15, 1934
Hat tip to commenter Cavewight
she was what...29? when she said that. WAY too old for such unselfaware hubris.
