With the tragic loss of Leonard Nimoy who played spock I was looking through quotes that were attributed to him, a great deal of them can be used in advocacy type situations. While I’m not sure the context off all the quotes, quite a few of them spoke to me about advocacy.
“Whatever I have given, I have gained”
“When you let me take I’m grateful. When you let me give I’m blessed.”
“I believe in goodness, mercy and charity. I believe in casting bread upon the waters.”
“Bullying is the use of force, threat, or coercion to abuse, intimidate, or aggressively impose domination over others. Help a friend.”
“Greetings, I am pleased to see that we are different. May we together become greater than the sum of both of us.”
“I’m touched by the idea that when we do things that are useful and helpful – collecting these shards of spirituality – that we may be helping to bring about a healing.”
“The miracle is this: the more we share the more we have.”
Leonard Nimoy was not only a great actor, but a great man. He used his talent in photography to show the beauty of woman of all body figures as well as a very accomplished author. Think about these quotes for a while and check out his work.
