Spock was Star Trek’s half-human, half-Vulcan science officer aboard the original Star Ship Enterprise. Always logical, he kept his head while all around him were loosing theirs.

As well as the Vulcan “neck-pinch” and of course, the Vulcan salute, his character also gave us some very relevant quotes to ponder:

“Insufficient facts always invite danger.”

“Without followers, evil cannot spread.” 

“Once you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.”

Actor Leonard Nimoy, who portrayed Spock in television and film for almost fifty years, thought that people identified with the character because they “recognize in themselves this wish that they could be logical and avoid the pain of anger and confrontation. How many times have we come away from an argument wishing we had said and done something differently?”

Affirmative.
