Package: fortunes
Version: 1:1.99.1-3.1

On logging in to my server today I was greated with the following

        One evening he spoke.  Sitting at her feet, his face raised to
her, he allowed his soul to be heard.  "My darling, anything you wish,
anything I am, anything I can ever be...  That's what I want to offer
you -- not the things I'll get for you, but the thing in me that will
make me able to get them.  That thing -- a man can't renounce it -- but
I want to renounce it -- so that it will be yours -- so that it will be
in your service -- only for you."
        The girl smiled and asked: "Do you think I'm prettier than
Maggie Kelly?"
        He got up.  He said nothing and walked out of the house.  He
never saw that girl again.  Gail Wynand, who prided himself on never
needing a lesson twice, did not fall in love again in the years that
                -- Ayn Rand, "The Fountainhead"

Which grep informs me is contained
in /usr/share/games/fortunes/men-women . Although I appreciate that my
random number generator probably thinks I need romantic guidance, I
feel, based purely on personal prejudice that any and all quotes from
Ayn Rand should be moved to fortunes-off on the grounds of odious
interpersonal philosophy.

reporter is opinionated" or "PEBCAK", I won't mind :-)

PPS Thanks for all your work maintaining fortune package - it is
