10 of the greatest Spock quotes

In 2015 we lost Leonard Nimoy, best known as Spock from Star Trek. Although we don’t have many Star Trek games on OngoingWorlds (the ones we have are here), there are many fans among us, and the Star Trek universe still thrives in so many online roleplaying games. Below are some of the best quotes by Spock, which really make you think.

loss of life is to be mourned, but only if life is wasted

Change is the essential process of all existence

Here’s a great one for us writers. I believe this one sincerely…

creativity is necessary for the health of the body

Remember this one next time you feel insulted…

Insults are effectively only where emotions are present

it has always been easier to destroy than to create

what was I meant to be?

without followers, evil cannot spread

Logic is the beginning of wisdom, not the end

It's the lot of man to strive nomatter how content he is

The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the one

And of course, Spock’s old favourite…

Live long and prosper

Nimoy was also known for playing a major character in Fringe (which would make a brilliant roleplay, why hasn’t someone created one? Someone do it, do it now!).
