Re: What would be some good quotes for a starship dedication plaque?

Here's some more I found:

"Science does not know its debt to imagination."

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Men love to wonder, and that is the seed of science."

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.”

-André Gide

“Sailors on a becalmed sea, we sense the stirring of a breeze.”

-Carl Sagan

“The perfect journey is never finished, the goal is always just across the next river, round the shoulder of the next mountain. There is always one more track to follow, one more mirage to explore.”

― Rosita Forbes (a bit long, but I like it)

"Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point."

-C. S. Lewis

"Courage is the price that life exacts for granting peace."

-Amelia Earhart

(No more smart-ass ones, please?)
