"When you accept money in payment for your effort, you do so only on the conviction that you will exchange it for the product of the effort of others. It is not the moochers or the looters who give value to money. Not an ocean of tears nor all the guns in the world can transform those pieces of paper in your wallet into the bread you will need to survive tomorrow. Those pieces of paper which should have been gold, are a token of honor -- your claim upon the energy of the men who produce. Your wallet is your statement of hope that somewhere in the world around you there are men who will not default on that moral principle which is the root of money." ~ Ayn Rand
Hello there. I'm Madeline Smith, and I am a writer of daily life, love, wishes and mystifications. I'm entirely fascinated with the human being mind, the way it operates along with why. I can be the first to admit that there is still a great deal to learn, so much to comprehend in this thing all of us call everyday living. One mind can't grow without the strength of other minds. We are what we are today because of individuals within our past. Their particular achievements, as well as failures, has drastically contributed to our drive and ground breaking intelligence. This is precisely why I enjoy writing so much, because it allows me to share with you my knowledge and encounters with others in expectations to fill in the gap of uncertainness in some manner.
