“If being human is not simply a matter of being born flesh and blood, if it is instead a way of thinking, acting, and feeling, then I am hopeful that one day I will discover my own humanity. Until then, Commander Maddox, I will continue learning, changing, growing, and trying to become more than what I am.”
~Lieutenant Commander Data, “Data’s Day.” Star Trek: The Next Generation. CBS. 7 January 1991.
“Of course all life is a process of breaking down.”
~Fitzgerald, F. Scott. The Crack Up. New Directions: 2003.
