""Far above the Ephel Dúath in the West the night-sky was still dim and pale. There, peeping among the cloud-wrack above a dark tor high up in the mountains, Sam saw a white star twinkle for a while. The beauty of it smote his heart, as he looked up out of the forsaken land, and hope returned to him. For like a shaft, clear and cold, the thought pierced him that in the end the Shadow was only a small and passing thing: there was light and high beauty for ever beyond its reach." -- The Return of the King p.234"

About time too, since it's my favourite book quote of all time, haha!
I've finished the Fountainhead, I don't know what I should read next, although I've got a whole list. It's either more Faulkner, James Joyce, or F. Scott Fitzgerald.
