“Has it occurred to you that there’s a certain…inefficiency in constantly questioning me on things you’ve already made up your mind about?”
–Spock (played by Leonard Nimoy)
The Corbomite Maneuver
screenplay by Jerry Sohl
This is one in a series of quotations.
I’ve been working, from time to time, on a book of quotations for many years. I call it, “The Mind Boggles”, from one of my favorite quotations. I do source quotations a bit differently from a lot of people. In the case of a work of a fiction, I consider that the character said the line…not the author. As a bit of an author myself (in a minor way), I can tell you…my characters definitely say things that I would never say. These are all quotations that I’ve collected myself: I’ve read the book, seen the TV episode, and so on.
Hope you enjoy them!This post by Bufo Calvin originally appeared in the The Measured Circle blog.
