Goodbye to my favorite science officer. Leonard Nimoy, who played Spock on the original Star Trek series, died today. Nimoy invented the Vulcan salute himself. He was inspired by the Jewish Priestly Blessing he had seen at an Orthodox synagogue.
"Logic is the beginning of wisdom, not the end." - Leonard Nimoy. RIP to one of the greatest influences on my search for Reason, Knowledge and Discipline.
Only when stung by despair do we value the innumerable felicities offered to us by the Providence!
