Favorite Star Trek motivational quote?

(Pointing to a swastika banner.) "Look at our destiny. The field of red; the purity of European blood. The blazing white circle of the Sun that sanctified that blood. No-one can deny us; no power in this galaxy or beyond. Not the Romulans, not the Dominion. We are driven by the very force that gives life to the Universe itself. Stay and fight, we must be faithful to who we are!"

I cleaned it up a bit so as to offend. If anyone wants the real quote I'll post it up.

Let's get the hell out of here

OR

Risk ... risk is our business

OR

Go to your quarters or I'll pick you up and carry you there.

OR

You belong in a circus Spock, right next to the dog-faced boy.
(that last one really motivated.)

Considering my medical history:

I don't believe in the no-win scenario.

And along with that:

There are always possibilities.

I don't even remember what episode it's from, but "I won't kill today."

Where's this from? I thought TOS, but it can't be if it includes the Dominion.

"... The more I've experienced, the more I've learned that no matter how far we travel, or how fast we get there, the most profound discoveries are not necessarily beyond that next star. They're within us, woven into the threads that bind us, all of us, to each other. The final frontier begins in this hall. Let's explore it together."
--Archer

I am amazed how often this quote works in these forums...

Re: Favorite Star Trek motivational quote?

Not sure if most people would count this as motivational, but it is my favorite Trek quote, period, and I find it to be so.

"The spear in the Other's heart is the spear in your Own: You are He. There is no other wisdom, and no other hope for us but that we grow wise." - Surak of Vulcan

Where did that quote come from? A series or a novel?

And the German quote is from VOY's "The Killing Game" although I can't remember if it was one of the Nazi Hirogen, or the actual human Nazis, who said it.

My favorite: Kirk from ST II - "I don't like to lose."

I believe it was "Spock's World", but I'm not certain - it was definitely one of Diane Duane's Vulcan/Rihannsu books.

"Tilek svi'khaf-spol t'vathu - tilek svi'sha'veh. Ri vath kau eh ri vath rok nam-tor na'etek hi etek kau-tor." - the same phrase, in Traditional Golic Vulcan.

Part of that quote also appears in The Wounded Sky (the first part). I don't know where we saw the rest.

"There are always possibilities."

Once I would have included "The Human Adventure is just beginning", but I don't really believe that any more.

"Out there - thatta way."
"First star on the right, and straight on til morning."

"How is it that you can do these things?"
"Because I am first officer of the starship Enterprise."
