Come, my friends,

‘T is not too late to seek a newer world…

Tho’ much is taken, much abides; and tho’

We are not now that strength which in old days

Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are;

One equal temper of heroic hearts,

Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will

To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

— From ULYSSES by Alfred Lord Tennyson – the favorite poem of Robert F. Kennedy

Live long and prosper!

— Spock
