Live long and accomplished

The big news on the internets this morning is the death of actor Leonard Nimoy. One of the many tweets on my timeline addressing the loss of Spock was one linking to a Buzzfeed article about some very profound and long ago advice Nimoy (as Spock) offered to a teen fan who felt like an outcast.

He replaced the idea of wanting to be liked with the
idea of becoming accomplished.

You can read the whole thing here. It's really amazing life advice. It also makes me wonder what ever happened to that girl and if/how this article affected her.

H/T to Kathryn Lilley on Twitter for the link.
