A Little Inspiration from Star Trek.
A while back I posted a bunch of inspirational quotes from Star Wars.
Well, it seems that the Trekkies were feeling left out so in deference to their feelings, I’ve dug up a bunch of inspired quotes from Star Trek.
There is a huge resource of both positive and negative philosophy from both the TV series and the several movies that were made.
Since the TV series was running while the Vietnam war was going on, there is a lot of reference to war.
The whole series was very cerebral and nobody thought it would take off like it did. And it continues…….
They are still making movies and coming up with thoughtful and intriguing plots.
So if you’re a Trekkie, this is for you. If you’re not a Trekkie, you might just enjoy it anyway and get some inspiration.
So here it goes, some inspiration from Star Trek. [mlsp-cta campaign=”rareprofitsystem” layout=”standard” align=”right”]
