Booman hath made a major error in the Bolton Diary and mentioned Vulcans.  With no more ado:


On Being a Vulcan

“To be Vulcan, means to adopt a philosophy, a way of life which is logical and beneficial. We can not disregard that philosophy merely for personal gain – no matter how important that gain may be.”
On Logic

“Logic is the begining of wisdom not the end”

On Existence

“Change is the essential process of all existence.”

On Death

“Is death truly a curse? There is little logic in condemning something one has not experienced…or does not remember experiencing.”

“Accepting death – by understanding that every life comes to an end, when time demands it. Loss of life is to be mourned, but only if the life was wasted.”

On Intelligence

“A world without intelligence is a primitive place, Doctor, not an enchanted place. Intelligence is part of the advancing scheme of evolution. Without it, nature reaches a plateau very quickly and does not progress beyond raw survival. The full flavor of possibility goes un-savored. And that… is a true shame.”

On Fear

“Irrational fear is a construct of an undisciplined intellect”

On Computers

“Computers make excellent and efficient servants – but I have no wish to serve under them.”

On knowledge

“If I drop a wrench on a planet with a positive gravity field, I need not see it fall, nor hear it hit the ground, to know that it has in fact fallen.”

“I object to Intellect without discipline. I object to power without constructive purpose.”

On Fascinating

“Fascinating is a word I use for the unexpected.”

On Appreciation

“Appreciation is a noun. It denotes the just valuation or recognition of worth.”

On Beauty

“It is our way – Art and Science combined. There is no reason that function should not be beautiful – in fact beauty usually makes it more effective.”

On Creativity

“Creativity is necessary for the health of the body.”

On Wanting

“Having is not so pleasing as wanting. It is not logical, but it is often true.”
