From: Mortal Kombat
Genre: Video Games
Who said it?: Reptile
The story behind the quote: The quote comes from the first Mortal Kombat. The arcade fighting game stood out from the rest of the other Street Fighter clones as it used digitized actors instead of sprites. Oh, and you could murder your opponent if you beat him!
The game was also popular for having hidden secrets and one of those secrets was a computer controlled character named Reptile. It took a long time to figure out how to fight him but the green ninja would drop down and drop hints on how to do so. One of these quotes just so happens to be the quote mentioned:
Geek wisdom: Just a few decades ago, people had dreams to go to the moon. And we actually did. However, something happened between then and now. We stopped going to the moon and, in a way, we also stopped dreaming. In these modern times, we tend to look at the ground or look at what’s in front of us. We never really look up in the sky and wonder anymore. We tend to create short term goals and we don’t think of any long-term goals these days.
Once in a while, take a moment, go outside and look at the moon. And wonder and dream of endless possibilities.
