Objectivist Blog Carnival

Welcome to the August 25, 2011 edition of the Objectivist Round Up.  I’m filling in this week as an emergency host, so forgive me for not sending out reminder e-mails earlier.

Today’s quote is brought to you from Nietzsche.  Although he and I understand it differently, he phrases it so beautifully:

Egoism is the very essence of a noble soul.

There is a beauty in the writing of Nietzsche that is all too lacking in many other philosophers.  It is a shame that there is not also more truth.

Without further ado, here is this week’s carnival!
