"... those who tolerate a complete break between their convictions and their lives, and still believe that they have convictions. To them -either their ideals or their lives are worthless- and usually both."
Quote, p206 from Ayn Rand, "The Early Ayn Rand", in the introduction to the essay "Ideal", which she wrote in the early thirties.

"In her journal of this period, Miss Rand also singles out religion as the main cause of men's lack of integrity. ... preaching sacrifice as an ideal, religion, no matter what its intentions, systematically inculcates hypocrisy: it teaches men that achieving values is low ('selfish'), but that giving them up is noble. 'Giving them up,' in practice, means betraying them."
Quote from the editor's notes to the essay "Ideal" in Ayn Rand, "The Early Ayn Rand".
