Picard Quotes - What are your favourites?

Hello,

I am ordering a custom mug for my husband for Christmas, and I would like to include an excellent quote from Picard.

Trouble is: there are SO MANY that it is difficult for me to focus, and I don't want to ask him directly.

So, could you please share your favourite quotes?

If you can't recall exactly, that's okay, I can cross-reference them.

Thank you.

"Time is a companion that goes with us on a journey. It reminds us to cherish each moment, because it will never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we have lived."

or

"I want to see my father. I want to see him now. Now now now now now now!"

Depending on your mood. :P

Shouldn't it be a bit Cartman-esq?

"The line much be drawn He'yah!!!

And I.... Will make them PAAAaaaaY for what they done!!!" *twiches*

Added:

Although I think if I wanted a Picard Mug, I'd want one with him wearing the shirt that says "Bitches don't know bout my four lights!" (See below: )

No! Nooooooooooo! I will not sacrifice the Enterprise. We've made too many compromises already, too many retreats. They invade our space and we fall back. They assimilate entire worlds and we fall back. Not again! The line must be drawn here! This far, no further! And I will make them pay for what they've done!

I would be delighted to offer any advice I can on understanding women. When I have some I'll let you know.

Hehe, i love that scene!

"There are four lights" is a good suggestion, Chakotay Lover!

DATA LIVES, you'll have to come back and let us know what you decided on. (and post a pic of the mug once you get it)...

"There are four lights!" would be phenomenal on a mug, instant smile once he looks at it! I genuinely think that's the winner
