“Change is the essential process of all existence.”

“I would remind you, though, that the word ‘decide’ is descended from older words meaning ‘to kill’; options and opportunities die when decisions are made. Be careful what you kill.”

“Accepting death – by understanding that every life comes to an end, when time demands it. Loss of life is to be mourned, but only if the life was wasted.”


“Irrational fear is a construct of an undisciplined intellect.”

“Vulcans do notĀ lackĀ emotion. It is merely that our emotions are controlled, kept in check. This adherence to principles of logic offers a serenity that humans rarely experience in full. We have emotions. But we deal firmly with them and do not let them control us.”

“Madness has no purpose or reason, but it may have a goal.”


“It is our way – art and science combined. There is no reason that function should not be beautiful – in fact beauty usually makes it more effective.”

“Creativity is necessary for the health of the body.”
