My dear,

In this brave new world you suffer to bring yourself joy, you give all your material possessions away to find yourself, and you definitely do not have sex or drink or flirt around.

In this world, either you’re virtuous or you enjoy yourself.

You’re either suffering and saved, or having the time of your life in sin. Those are the only two sides this new world say exist. And yet, you and I know, this brave new world is wrong.

I believe that you can be virtuous and enjoy yourself at the same time. It’s the world that tries to stop this from happening.

… Be not of the world, and you’ll see what I mean.

Falsely yours,
Ayn Rand
