People think time is fragile. Precious. Beautiful. Sand in an hourglass and all that. But it's not. Time is savage. It always wins.

Gabrielle Burnham

Time is a living thing. It has gravity and will and it's pulling the A.I. closer.

Gabrielle Burnham

Einstein couldn't have been more right. Time's motion depends on the observer, on the action. The people I was able to move from Earth to Terralysium as they call my planet are thriving. They're survival means that time is fluid. The future can be changed. Maybe the past as well.

Gabrielle Burnham

Faith is not a strategy.

Leland

You joined Section 31 to keep a brutish universe on its knees, Captain. To maintain order by any means necessary. Your evolution, our evolution, is not a desecration of that post but its very fulfillment.

Control

Leland: I am my own man.
Command: A man who has demonstrated with his every action a willingness to operate from several different truths simultaneously which has allowed you to make questionable moral decisions while avoiding the destructive power of human guilt. You believe in the ends more than the means.

You woke. That was sooner than expected.

Spock

Burnham: Power and life support systems are disabled everywhere except for the data center where Control is located so we'll have to beam over in EV suits.
Pike: Because the politics won't complicate it enough.

This makes my work impossible and I'm not being hyperbolic when I say the future of the galaxy's at stake.

Spock

What I feel is that failure is liberating and, for the first time, I enjoy expressing emotion!

Spock

You avoid reality because it is easier for you to shoulder burden than to face unimaginable grief.

Spock

Spock: It is arrogant of you to assert that my present manner of thinking requires fixing at all.
Burnham: It is arrogant of you to assert it doesn't

Star Trek: Discovery Quotes

On the eve of battle, on a cold and windless night, an old general turned to a young soldier. 'Tomorrow,' said the master,'you will know Fear.' The young soldier who had not yet experienced the agony of war looked at the general with quizzical eyes. 'How will I know Fear if I do not know what it looks like?' The general replied,'You will know Fear because it speaks very fast and it speaks very loud...' 'If that is how Fear acts, recognizing it is easy.' But as the young soldier considered the general's advice, she asked the question facing us now,'Once I know Fear, how do I defeat it?'

Burnham

All life is born from chaos and destruction.
