RAHQOTD

In honor of General David Petraeus and his "shameful" behavior.

Geniuses and supergeniuses always make their own rules on sex as on everything else; they do not accept the monkey customs of their lessers. -RAH 'Friday' (1983)

Forcing my hand on Wednesday's:

she never wondered whether he was true to her or not; she knew he was. She knew, even though she was too young to know the reason, that indiscriminate desire and unselective indulgence were possible only to those who regarded sex and themselves as evil.

Left to the reader: are the Heinlein and Rand quotes contradictory?

In short: No.
