Stephen Hawking(January 8, 1942- March 14, 2018) was the famous physician and a brilliant personality. He had made many predictions about life, universe and technology. He had explained about black hole that it emits radiations. Sadly his demise had created the black hole in our world. However his teachings and knowledge will always prevail in this world and last longer!
To acknowledge his work and life, we should take a look at some of the powerful and influencing quotes presented by Stephen Hawking:
Look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see, and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious.
We are all now connected by the Internet, like neurons in a giant brain.
My advice to other disabled people would be, concentrate on things your disability doesn’t prevent you doing well, and don’t regret the things it interferes with. Don’t be disabled in spirit as well as physically.
Stem cell research is the key to developing cures for degenerative conditions like Parkinson’s and motor neuron disease from which I and many others suffer. The fact that the cells may come from embryos is not an objection, because the embryos are going to die anyway.
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 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.
People who boast about their I.Q. are losers
The radiation left over from the Big Bang is the same as that in your microwave oven but very much less powerful. It would heat your pizza only to minus 271.3*C – not much good for defrosting the pizza, let alone cooking it.
God may exist, but science can explain the universe without the need for a creator.
In my school, the brightest boys did math and physics, the less bright did physics and chemistry, and the least bright did biology. I wanted to do math and physics, but my father made me do chemistry because he thought there would be no jobs for mathematicians.
There is a real danger that computers will develop intelligence and take over. We urgently need to develop direct connections to the brain so that computers can add to human intelligence rather than be in opposition.
One cannot really argue with a mathematical theorem.
Science is not only a disciple of reason but, also, one of romance and passion.
With genetic engineering, we will be able to increase the complexity of our DNA, and improve the human race. But it will be a slow process, because one will have to wait about 18 years to see the effect of changes to the genetic code.
I think we have a good chance of surviving long enough to colonize the solar system.
So these are some of the brilliant quotes of Stephen Hawking, which shows his perspective about life and universe. We should always keep his words in our mind to make our life worth wise!
