That's Kurt Vonnegut 'Welcome to the Monkey House' I believe. The Mirror Mirror quote according to chakoteya is 'It was far easier for you as civilised men to behave like barbarians, than it was for them to behave like civilised men.'

Pretty much every single line of "The Measure of a Man" is quotable, and a lot of it has indeed been quoted here. So I won't.

Another favorite:
"With the first link, the chain is forged. The first speech censured, the first thought forbidden, the first freedom denied, chains us all irrevocably" TNG - The Drumhead.

Jean-Luc Picard: Q, what is going on?
Q: I told you. You're dead. This is the afterlife. And I'm God.
Jean-Luc Picard: [ You are not God!
Q: Blasphemy! You're lucky I don't cast you out or smite you or something. The bottom line is, your life ended about five minutes ago, under the inept ministrations of Dr. Beverly Crusher.
Jean-Luc Picard: No... I am not dead. Because I refuse to believe that the afterlife is run by you. The universe is not so badly designed.

Many good ones in this thread!

Riker (many times): "Rrrrrrred alert!"

Data: "I just *love* scanning for life forms! [singing] Life forms! You tiny little life forms! You precious little life forms! Where are you?"
(Especially loved Riker's reaction to this! )

You picked Red Alert as the best line in Star Trek History?
