"You know, we have a saying on Earth. We say 'I'm only human.' We say it because we're vulnerable. We say it because we know we're afraid. But it doesn't mean we're weak."
"There are certain things men must do to remain men."
—James T. Kirk
"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects."
—Robert A. Heinlein
