Leonard Nimoy's quotes and the real meaning of the Vulcan Salute/ hand sign.

Updated on March 1, 2015

Who could argue with this?

First, who was he?

Leonard Nimoy was born in Boston to the parents of Jewish immigrants from The Ukraine. He grew up speaking Yiddish, and watch much theater, but did not make his debut until he was 20.

Though he is best known for his role in Star Trek, he starred in many other movies, stage productions, and T.V. shows. He often played an intellectual like a Dr. or a scientist. There is so much to say about this man, that I wouldn't know where to begin. His impact on American entertainment will live on forever.

His and Mr. Spock's many quotes.

He was a very clever and insightful man. First I will give quotes from Leonard and then from his characters.

"Logic is the beginning of wisdom. It is not the end"

"The Miracle is that it is how much we share, that determines how much we really have."

"You know, for a long time I have been of the opinion that artists don't necessarily know what they're doing. You don't necessarily know what kind of universal concept you're tapping into."

"I think it's my adventure, my trip, my journey, and I guess my attitude is, let the chips fall where they may."

I'm touched by the idea that when we do things that are helpful and useful---collecting these shards of spirituality-- that we may be helping to bring about healing.


And now for Mr. Spock

"The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few or the one"

"insufficent facts always invite danger"


"Without followers, evil can not spread"

"Computers do make excellent and efficient servants, but I do not wish to serve under them."

"Once you have elimated the impossible, whatever remains, however impobable it may be, must be the truth.

The ancient symbol that he reintroduced to the world.

Nimoy created this, using the shape of the Hebrew letter Shin.It is also based on the Hebrew Blessings used by Jewish Kohanim.It means, from Hebrew translation, May Almighty God give you peace and long life.

He had an experience when he was young that shaped his personal philosophy.

      Any tribute to Leonard Nimoy is certainly a good one. He was an outstanding man and actor and you've certainly written a thought provoking tribute using his own words.

      Voted up, useful, and interesting.
