"We are all time-travellers, journeying together into the future. But let us work together to make that future a place we want to visit. Be brave, be determined, overcome the odds. It can be done."
We project ourselves onto the world ... we create gods in our own image, we create the world in our own image and we create the future in our own image. Good vs evil, love vs hate, generosity vs greed - we have choices ... Stephen Hawking is a positive inspiration let him be our guide to life the universe and everything and the future we create.
Be curious, be optimistic and keep trying
“Remember to 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. And however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at. It matters that you don’t just give up.”
Be playful and have a sense of humour
"Life would be tragic if it weren't funny."
"I am just a child who has never grown up. I still keep asking these 'how' and 'why' questions. Occasionally, I find an answer."
"Keeping an active mind has been vital to my survival, as has been maintaining a sense of humour."
We are not perfect ... be humble, be open and be willing and able to change.
“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”
"Mankind’s greatest achievements have come about by talking, and its greatest failures by not talking."
"The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.
"Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change."
Be enthusiastic and have romance and passion
"Science is not only a disciple of reason but, also, one of romance and passion. "
And most of all ... love
"If you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is there and don’t throw it away.”
"It would not be much of a universe if it wasn't home to the people you love."
