Mother Reardon

Mother Reardon, (Atlas Shrugged), Hank's mother, and she is an official nag; forever disapproving of the anti-social behavior of her steel-magnate spawn.

“You’re not sorry. You could’ve been here if you’d made the effort. But when did you ever make an effort for anybody but yourself? You’re not interested in any of us or in anything we do. You think if you pay the bills, that’s enough, don’t you? Money! That’s all you know. And all you give us is money. Have you ever given us any time?”

—Mother Reardon

“Your not the only one who works hard”

—Mother Reardon

“Mother, I’m running a steel plant—not a whorehouse.”
