Monstaville Quotes Extra #5
Janeway: This is Kathryn Janeway. I’ve never liked saying good bye, so I’ll
make this brief, but I want you all to know that serving as your
captain has been the
most extraordinary experience of my life. No captain could ask more
than what this crew has given. Bravery, compassion and strength of
character. But I
think what I’ll miss most is the fun. The times we joked together,
the games on the holodeck. I’ll remember the laughter more than
Commander Chakotay and I won’t be with you for the rest of your
journey, we know that you’ll be the same steadfast crew for Mister Tuvok
as you have been
for us. We wish you a safe and a speedy journey home. Our thoughts
will be with you. Janeway out.
Tuvok: Thank you, Captain, Commander. I am sure I speak for the entire
crew when I say we will always remember your grace and courage. And I
would like to add,
it has been an honour serving with you. Live long and prosper.

“This is one more piece of advice I have for you: don’t get
impatient. Even if things are so tangled up you can’t do anything, don’t
get desperate or blow
a fuse and start yanking on one particular thread before it’s ready
to come undone. You have to figure it’s going to be a long process and
that you’ll work
on things slowly, one at a time.” - Haruki Murakami (Norwegian Wood).
“The greatest weapon anyone can use against us is our own mind, by
preying on the doubts and uncertainties that already lurk there.” -
Emily Thorne ( Revenge).
“The only way that we can live is if we grow. The only way we can
grow is if we change. The only way we can change is if we learn. The
only way we can
learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we are exposed is
if we throw ourselves into the open.” – C. Joybell.
“When suffering is on all sides and man hungers for the unmanifested mystery in all phenomena, He seeks reflection of the Divine. God’s higher truths are cloaked in his creation and the message is in the stars.” - Nostradamus.
“When the chips are down, man will avoid the effort of solving the immediate pressing problems by pointless reflection on larger unquantifiable theories. This is called ‘prevarication.’” - Richard Caukill.
