    It’s the small habits.
    How you spend your mornings.
    How you talk to yourself.
    What you read.
    What you watch.
    Who you share your energy with.
    Who has access to you.
    That will change your life.

    “Dominique is a masochist who refuses to let herself become attached to anything or anyone and lives her life amidst the very things that torture her.
    She loathes society specifically because she so passionately believes in human perfection and views society as a threat to this perfection.
    She has a great appreciation for what is pure, beautiful, and strong, and she firmly believes that the world destroys all that is good.
    This sentiment grips her so strongly that she would rather break a perfect vase than see it used by the unworthy.
    All around her she finds men without character and men who borrow their beliefs and principles from others.
    She hates such men not because of their failings but because she sees them ruin the world, and she thus lives her life in a cold, spiteful way.
    She refuses to love anyone or anything for fear that the world will destroy what she loves, and she surrounds herself with those people she likes the least, knowing that she will be in no danger of falling in love with them.
    Dominique’s encounter with Roark derails her loveless existence, as she finds herself caring for a man with vision and character.
    True to her philosophy, she does not celebrate this turn of events.
    She fears the world will destroy this good man, so she decides to destroy him first.”
