"After a time, you may find that having a thing is not so pleasing a thing after all as wanting. It is not logical, but it is often true."

"The way you walk is thorny, through no fault of your own, but as the rain enters the soil and the river runs into the sea, so tears flow to a predestined end. Your suffering is over. Find peace for eternity."
--Maleva, The Wolf Man (1941)
Yes, I memorized that as a kid . . . .
...explains a lot, really. Probably like me memorizing the Ring-inscription in the Black Speech.
I also like, from TNG, (it's all in her delivery)
"Your neutrinos are drifting..."
Spock's final "Live long and prosper" (in a definite "You can go straight to hell" tone) in ST XI.
