This book is one of those stories that will change your life.  It makes you want to be the best at something, to excel, and to know how amazingly skilled you are.  You will always remember Howard Roark, and you will always wish to meet him.  Or perhaps not--he is a very intimidating person I'm sure.  The Fountainhead will always have a special place in my heart, because it reminds me that people shouldn't give in to society, that people can always do what they love to do if they have confidence, and that someone should never have to settle for something they hate to do just because society wants to keep them from it.  Humility is not a virtue in this book, and ego is not a vice. 

I will always wonder what the buildings Roark designed looked like.
