Live Long and Prosper

Today we heard sad news, that Leonard Nimoy, aka. Mr. Spock has passed away.  He was 83 years old and passed away in his home in Los Angeles, cause of death is reported to be end stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Mr. Nimoy, was accomplished in more things than just portraying so perfectly the Vulcan character Spock.  He also had various artistic interests and accomplishments in poetry, photography and muisc.   Mr. Nimoy became a household name with his character Spock and had / has a huge following of loyal fans, myself included.

 

Today I reflected a little on this pointy-eared Vulcan with his famous saying "Live Long and Prosper" and I thought if one could coin a phrase what a perfect saying to be remembered by.

After all isn't that what we all want, is to live life well and for a very long time... Mr. Leonard Nimoy, Mr. Spock I hope you did.

To all my friends and colleagues and all out there may we take a moment today to reflect on our beloved Spock and try to make our lives happy, prosperous and the same for those around us so that when it is our time we can say, "We lived a long and prosperous life"

Goodbye old friend, my you rest in peace knowing you brought so much to so many

Nice tribute - but for those at Zillow watching us, this is a classic example of what gets some of us frustrated with the "new system." This is a nice post. (I'd go back and edit it for the error in calling him Dr Spock) but why is it a featured post in a real estate forum?

Sorry about my blunder with Dr. Spock vs. Mr. Spock your absolutely right I didn't even realize I wrote Dr. I 've know all along it's Mr. must of been a slip because I know exactly who you are talking about with Dr. Spock, he wrote a book on raising children back in the 60-70's and then 25 years later or so wrote another book apologizing for his first book saying how wrong he was with his theory... So I apologize for that Jay.

It was so sad hearing about this! He was 83 though and we all have our time and we will all be called back to the ground in bodily form at some point.

To think that the original Star Trek was only four seasons and then the movies were but a few.

It's amazing how many people are moved by this loss.  Star Trek was part of many of our lives, whether hard core Trekers or more casual fans.  I appreciated the emphisis on reason, logic and not being driven by passions, but loved seeing Spock get in touch with his in various episodes.

It's hard to believe that the Star Trek the TV series was only broadcast for three years. The show left a lasting impression on so many of us.

Certainly grew up watching Star Trek. Once at a Star Trek convention met Gene Roddenberry. Thank You Mr Spock and Leonard Nimoy for all the great memories!

He had a very strong role on that series. Now Capt Kirk is getting flak for not attending services.  Defies logic

Giselle, I think you are on solid ground calling the science officer on the USS Enterprise  "Dr. Spock".  

Afterall, as science officer and as smart as he was, Spock probably had a couple of DOZEN PhD's !!!     So Dr. Spock is fine by me!!!! (The "Baby Doc" is just going to have to share the title)
