"Bad times have a scientific value. These are occasions a good learner would not miss."Patrick Stewart on Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Having played many roles of scientific intellect I do have an empathy for that world. It's been hard on me because flying the Enterprise for seven years in Star Trek and sitting in Cerebro in X-men has led people to believe that I know what I'm talking about.

"I had come to the point when I realized it was unlikely that my film career was going to move beyond a certain level of role.

A director would say, 'I don't want Jean-Luc Picard in my movie' - and this was compounded by X-Men as well."
"I am told that there have been over the years a number of experiments taking place in places like Massachusetts Institute of Technology that have been entirely based on concepts raised by Star Trek."
