My relationship with Leonard [Nimoy] was a byproduct of playing Spock that I never would have imagined, but the more I got to know him, the more I realized, there are no mistakes.

Leonard was such a teacher for me.

And happiness...Well, after all, desires torment us, don't they? And, clearly, happiness is when there are no more desires, not one...What a mistake, what ridiculous prejudice it's been to have marked happiness always with a plus sign.

It is not good to settle into a set of opinions. It is a mistake to put forth effort and obtain some understanding and then stop at that.
