Favorite Non-Trek Quotes
« on: 08 August 2009 11:23 PM »
I recently borrowed a book called 500 Manga Heroes & Villains from the library. I like this book. The characters of Osamu Tezuka are fascinating. The two page article about Rock Holmes (a villain) is interesting. I fell in love with this quote.

"The world is full of inconsistencies. The world will not weep even if the fight for justice is lost and evil triumphs. Come spring, the flowers will bloom, the sunshine will still pour down in the summer."
Time is the fire in which we burn. -Gene Roddenberry

This is the price of freedom:
Your every drop of courage,
ounce of pain,
pint of blood.
Paid in advance.

"You know, I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them. So now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe."

"Speech has allowed the communication of ideas, enabling human
beings to work together to build the impossible. Mankind's
greatest achievements have come about by talking, and its
greatest failures by not talking. It doesn't have to be like
this. Our greatest hopes could become reality in the future.
With the technology at our disposal, the possibilities are
unbounded. All we need to do is make sure we keep talking."
