Here are ten of Stephen Hawking’s most inspirational quotes:
Without imperfection, you or I would not exist.
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 always there and don’t throw it away.
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.
Black holes ain’t as black as they are painted. They are not the eternal prisons they were once thought. Things can get out of a black hole both on the outside and possibly to another universe. So if you feel you are in a black hole, don’t give up– there’s a way out.
We should seek the greatest value of our action.
Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change.
However difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do, and succeed at. It matters that you don’t just give up.
My expectations were reduced to zero when I was 21. Everything since then has been a bonus.
Thank you Stephen Hawking!
