I am a proud nerd, so when I’m looking for inspirational quotes, I usually turn to science fiction or fantasy.
Today, I’ve got to give you my favorite quote. It’s intentionally campy, as the movie is a spoof on Star Trek. The movie: Galaxy Quest. The quote: “Never give up, never surrender!” I really should plaster that to my wall somewhere.
Here are some of my favorite quotes besides the one from Galaxy Quest:
