The Wisdom of Spock

I am a little late getting up a Leonard Nimoy tribute, but I couldn't rightfully call myself a geek if I didn't do one.  Although there was a whole lot more to him than the character of Spock, that is how most of us know him.  So, in honor of Leonard Nimoy, here are my top five favorite Spock quotes.

1. Logic is the beginning of wisdom, not the end.

2. History is replete with turning points. You must have faith that the universe will unfold as it should.

3. Insufficient facts always invite danger.

4. Once you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.

5. Change is the essential process of all existence.

My absolute favorite quote, however, is from Mr. Nimoy himself. His very last tweet was absolute perfection.

Leonard Nimoy and his always wise alter-ego, Mr. Spock, will live on in the memories of all of us. To borrow his words, “Live long and prosper.”
