Now would be an appropriate time for a colorful metaphor

Rest in peace Leonard Nimoy. I remember reading in one of his autobiographies that Nimoy received far more female fan mail than Shatner. My theory is women loved Spock because, as an unemotional Vulcan, he literally didn't care. Of course Spock was half human and did show emotions on some occasions, so all of the female fans fantasized that they were the unique snow flake that could pierce his cold exterior.

His last tweet reads, "A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP." I can't think of a better epitaph. God rest you Mr. Nimoy. Your work on Star Trek brought joy and wonder to myself and millions of other fans around the world.
