Dominique Francon:
I'll marry you. Don't you want to ask me any questions?



Gail Wynand:
No.



Dominique Francon:
Thank you. You're making it easier for me.



Gail Wynand:
Whatever your reason, I shall accept it. What I want to find in our marriage will remain my own concern. I exact no promises and impose no obligations. Incidentally, since it is of no importance to you, I love you.

Ellsworth Toohey:
There's the building that should have been yours. There are buildings going up all over the city which are great chances refused and given to incompetent fools. You're walking the streets while they're doing the work that you love but cannot obtain. This city is closed to you. It is I who have done it! Don't you want to know my motive?



Howard Roark:
No!



Ellsworth Toohey:
I'm fighting you and shall fight you in every way I can.



Howard Roark:
You're free to do what you please!



Ellsworth Toohey:
Mr. Roark, we’re alone here. Why don't you tell me what you think of me in any words you wish.



Howard Roark:
But I don't think of you!


[Roark walks away and Toohey's head slumps down]

Howard Roark:
Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people! Your own work, not any possible object of your charity. I'll be glad if men who need it find a better method of living in the house I built, but that's not the motive of my work, nor my reason, nor my reward! My reward, my purpose, my life, is the work itself - my work done my way! Nothing else matters to me!

I don't give or ask for help!

[to Roark, regarding the Wynand Building]



Gail Wynand:
Build it as a monument to that spirit which is yours - and could have been mine.
