Stephen Hawking Inspirational Quotes To Motivate You
A zero-gravity flight is a first step toward space travel. Because there is a law such as gravity, the universe can and will create itself from nothing. Computers double their performance every month. However difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at. I am just a child who has never grown up. I still keep asking these ‘how’ and ‘why’ questions. Occasionally, I find an answer. I believe alien life is quite common in the universe, although intelligent life is less so. Some say it has yet to appear on planet Earth. I believe the universe is governed by the laws of science. The laws may have been decreed by God, but God does not intervene to break the laws. I believe things cannot make themselves impossible. I don’t think the human race will survive the next thousand years, unless we spread into space. I don’t want to write an autobiography because I would become public property with no privacy left. 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. I have so much that I want to do. I hate wasting time. I think those who have a terminal illness and are in great pain should have the right to choose to end their own life, and those that help them should be free from prosecution. I was not a good student. I did not spend much time at college; I was too busy enjoying myself. I would like nuclear fusion to become a practical power source. It would provide an inexhaustible supply of energy, without pollution or global warming.
I’m not afraid of death, but I’m in no hurry to die. I have so much I want to do first. If you understand the universe, you control it, in a way. Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change. Life would be tragic if it weren’t funny. 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. Many people find the universe confusing – it’s not. 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. My first popular book, ‘A Brief History of Time,’ aroused a great deal of interest, but many found it difficult to understand. My goal is simple. It is a complete understanding of the universe, why it is as it is and why it exists at all. Nothing cannot exist forever. One can’t predict the weather more than a few days in advance. People who boast about their I.Q. are losers. People won’t have time for you if you are always angry or complaining. Science can lift people out of poverty and cure disease. That, in turn, will reduce civil unrest. Science is not only a disciple of reason but, also, one of romance and passion. Sometimes I wonder if I’m as famous for my wheelchair and disabilities as I am for my discoveries. The doctor who diagnosed me with ALS, or motor neuron disease, told me that it would kill me in two or three years. The past, like the future, is indefinite and exists only as a spectrum of possibilities. Theology is unnecessary. There is a real danger that computers will develop intelligence and take over. There is no unique picture of reality. There is nothing bigger or older than the universe. They are a complete mystery. Time travel was once considered scientific heresy, and I used to avoid talking about it for fear of being labelled a ‘crank.’
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. 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. We should seek the greatest value of our action. We think we have solved the mystery of creation. Maybe we should patent the universe and charge everyone royalties for their existence. What was God doing before the divine creation? When one’s expectations are reduced to zero, one really appreciates everything one does have. Why are we here? Where do we come from? Traditionally, these are questions for philosophy, but philosophy is dead. Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it.
