6 Star Trek: The Next Generation Quotes That Inspire

If you made me pick one TV show that is my all-time favorite, Star Trek: The Next Generation would win every time. While Star Trek has thongs of fans, there are many people who just “don’t get it,” and that’s totally cool. That doesn’t mean these quotes can’t inspire.

It is the struggle itself that is most important. We must strive to be more than we are. It does not matter that we will never reach our ultimate goal. The effort yields its own reward.

Things are only impossible until they’re not!
~ Capt. Jean-Luc Picard (“When the Bough Breaks” – Star Trek:TNG Season 1, 1988)

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.

With the first link, the chain is forged. The first speech censured, the first thought forbidden, the first freedom denied, chains us all irrevocably.’ Those words were uttered by Judge Aaron Satie as wisdom and warning. The first time any man’s freedom is trodden on, we’re all damaged.
~ Capt. Jean-Luc Picard quoting a fictional 24th Century Judge (“The Drumhead” – Star Trek: TNG Season 4, 1991)

I prefer to think of the future as something that is not written in stone.

I have written prolifically on the topics of personal development and human potential for many years. By day, I write sales training for Fortune 100 company. I began studying affirmations and positive thinking after a life-threatening illness at 25. My thirst for self-improvement led him to read the writings of Joseph Campbell, Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Neale Donald Walsch, and many other luminaries in the fields of mythology and motivation. Over time, I have melded these ideas into my own philosophy on self-development. I have written, recorded, and used affirmations and other tools throughout that time to improve my own life and I have a passion for helping other reach for their goals and dreams.
