“Besides suggesting that there is a tomorrow, that there is…”

“Besides suggesting that there is a tomorrow, that there is challenge and romance in the world besides suggesting that it’s not all over, Star Trek said something else.  It goes rather like this: You human biped thing called Man, you strange creature, still in a sort of violent childhood of your evolution, you’re awkward and often illogical, you’re weak, vain, but d*mn it, you’re also gorgeous.”
–Gene Roddenberry
quoted in Fantastic Television
written by Gary Gerani and Paul H. Schulman

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!
