“To love a woman for her virtues is meaningless.
She’s earned it, it’s a payment, not a gift.
But to love her for her vices is a real gift, unearned and undeserved.
To love her for her vices is to defile all virtue for her sake -
and that is a real tribute of love,
because you sacrifice your conscience, your reason, your integrity
and your invaluable self-esteem.”
– Ayn Rand
