Stephen Hawking … For the man who conquered the Time, Stars, Galaxies, Black holes, The Whole Multiverse for the matter fact, Death is just a simple phenomenon. Death can take his life from his already half-dead body, But the intelligence he shared will live forever. His intelligence was his life, He was the one who never believed in destiny, Once he Quoted “I have noticed even people who claim everything is predestined, and that we can do nothing to change it, look before they cross the road.” At the age of 22, Professor Stephen Hawking was given only a few years to live after being diagnosed with a rare motor neuron disease, Which left 90% of his body paralyzed, But that couldn’t affect his brain. He believed that he was destined for more than just mere death by some disease, He never gave up even when his body didn’t support.
Once he has thrown a party to Time Travellers in the belief that one day they could join him if the time travel is ever invented in future, Such was his belief in his knowledge. Now let’s hope that it will be invented in future and we get to hear that robotic voice once again. Even though he couldn’t speak for himself he stood as the voice of science for all his life, Every word he spoke with his computerized voice was full of knowledge. Let’s have a look at some of his greatest quotes.
“However difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at.”
“It surprises me how disinterested we are today about things like physics, space, the universe and philosophy of our existence, our purpose, our final destination. It’s a crazy world out there. Be curious.”
“My goal is simple. It is a complete understanding of the universe, why it is as it is and why it exists at all.”
“One, remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Two, never give up work. Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it. Three, if you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is there and don’t throw it away.”
“One of the basic rules of the universe is that nothing is perfect. Perfection simply doesn’t exist…..Without imperfection, neither you nor I would exist”
“People who boast about their I.Q. are losers.”
“My expectations were reduced to zero when I was 21. Everything since then has been a bonus.”
“Quiet people have the loudest minds.”
“We are just an advanced breed of monkeys on a minor planet of a very average star. But we can understand the Universe. That makes us something very special.”
“Life would be tragic if it weren’t funny.”
“For millions of years, mankind lived just like the animals. Then something happened which unleashed the power of our imagination. We learned to talk and we learned to listen. Speech has allowed the communication of ideas, enabling human beings to work together to build the impossible. Mankind’s greatest achievements have come about by talking, and its greatest failures by not talking. It doesn’t have to be like this. Our greatest hopes could become reality in the future. With the technology at our disposal, the possibilities are unbounded. All we need to do is make sure we keep talking.”
“Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change. ”
“The victim should have the right to end his life if he wants. But I think it would be a great mistake. However bad life may seem, there is always something you can do, and succeed at. While there’s life, there is hope.”
“I believe the simplest explanation is, there is no God. No one created the universe and no one directs our fate. This leads me to a profound realization that there probably is no heaven and no afterlife either. We have this one life to appreciate the grand design of the universe and for that, I am extremely grateful.”
“If aliens visit us, the outcome would be much as when Columbus landed in America, which didn’t turn out well for the Native Americans. We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn’t want to meet.”
“I have noticed that even people who claim everything is predetermined and that we can do nothing to change it, look before they cross the road.”
“There is a fundamental difference between religion, which is based on authority, [and] science, which is based on observation and reason. Science will win because it works.”
“Life would be tragic if it weren’t funny.”
“We are in danger of destroying ourselves by our greed and stupidity. We cannot remain looking inwards at ourselves on a small and increasingly polluted and overcrowded planet.”
“I was never top of the class at school, But my classmates must have seen potential in me because my nickname was ‘Einstein’.”
The knowledge shared by this man is immortal, he just went out for a walk, free from his wheelchair to the cosmos. He will Rest In Science forever.
