“To infinity and beyond!”

From: Toy Story

Genre: Movies, Cartoons

Who said it?: Buzz Lightyear

The story behind the quote: The quote comes from one of the main characters from the Toy Story films, Buzz Lightyear. The films revolve around Andy’s favorite toys, one of which is Buzz Lightyear, a Space Ranger action figure, and the other is of Woody, an old style cowboy with a pull string. Although they may seem to be inanimate objects (they are just toys after all), they are actually alive and take great pains to keep this secret.

The quote in question is actually the catchphrase of Buzz Lightyear. It’s something that the animated character (the basis of the action figure) is fond of saying, so it was programmed into Buzz’s psyche. He usually says this before attempting something daring, such as proving he could fly…

Geek wisdom: It’s always important to strive beyond your current limits. Because if you think you’ve reached your limit and you believe you cannot improve, then that’s true; you will not get better. The only way to get better at something is to actually try to become better!

Most of my childhood (and adult life) was spent doing a lot of geeky stuff: watching TV, playing video games and going to the movies. To some, it may have been a waste of time. Well, to me, it has made me what I am today... a geeky adult. I actually write for a couple of blogs, namely: geekwisdom.wordpress.com 3rdworldgeeks.com gamemoir.com Please check them out!
