Cult Sci-Fi Wisdom of the Week; Pain Edition
"Dammit, Bones - you're a doctor. You know pain and guilt can't be taken away with the wave of a magic wand. They're the things we carry with us; the things that make us who we are. We lose them...we lose ourselves! I don't want my pain taken away. I need my pain." -Captain James T. Kirk, Star Trek V: The Final Frontier.
"Leave me with my pain, it reminds me I'm human." -Commander John Koenig, Space:1999, "Guardian of Piri"
