Re: Leonard Nimoy nas passed away

We all die but Spock made life wonderful for us while he was living. He was the best character on the best SCIFI show ever.

Re: Leonard Nimoy has passed away

Hollywood Mourns

Without followers, evil cannot spread." (Spock)

- "My folks came to the US as immigrants, aliens, and became citizens. I was born in Boston, a citizen, went to Hollywood and became an alien." (Nimoy)

- "Computers make excellent and efficient servants, but I have no wish to serve under them." (Spock)

- "Logic is the beginning of wisdom, not the end." (Nimoy)

- "I have never understood the female capacity to avoid a direct answer to any question." (Spock)

- "Spock is definitely one of my best friends. When I put on those ears, it's not like just another day. When I become Spock, that day becomes something special." (Nimoy)

- "Change is the essential process of all existence." (Spock)

I have been, and always shall be, your friend." (Spock, to Captain Kirk)

- "A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory." (Nimoy, in his last Twitter post)

Quote:
What was it about outer space and Nimoy? In a 1986 interview, he was asked to explain the ageless appeal of Star Trek.

“I think there’s something to seeing these very professional people helping each other to solve a problem and in the idea that mankind is humane and will do the right thing eventually to each other and to others,” Nimoy said. “And we all like the idea that there are great mysteries still to be explored.”
- "Live long and prosper." (Spock)
