Spock Spot

We had a moment of pondering at work the other day for we are deep buggers.  'Where does the saying 'The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few' come from?' one of us asked.  Someone thought that it might be a bit of ancient wisdom from long departed forefathers.  Another, quite reasonably, volunteered Shakespeare.  I googled it and discovered that this particular piece of wisdom is way more recent.  It fell out of the mouth of Dr Spock in the movie Star Trek II. Well, well!

Here's a quote from Leonard Nimoy, one of his own rather than out of the mouth of his alter ego with the wax-like pointy ears.  This resonates for I know it to be true from personal experience. There is  a wonderful symbiosis here.  For this time of giving and receiving presents here's a sweet little article about the benefits of gifting.

  1. OH and I could have told you it was Spock who said that.....we're diehard Trekkies here! (not to the extent of dressing up and learning the Klingon language though! Haha). Merry Christmas to you and yours.
