Some Quotes By Stephen Hawking

Stephen Hawking quotes

Stephen William Hawking was an English cosmologist, theoretical physicist, and author. He was also the director of research at the center of theoretical cosmology at the University of Cambridge in his final years.

The story of Stephen Hawking is very inspiring, motivational, and heart-touching.

The man is a personification of the phrase ‘never give up’. Even after being completely paralyzed, He never lost hope. He kept hustling and used his knowledge to become a living legend until the time he was alive. Hawking published a lot of books throughout his lifetime which helped a lot of people (including me) in gaining much-needed knowledge about the universe and many other things.

Unfortunately, Stephen William Hawking passed away on March 14th, 2018 due to the disease he was suffering from (Lou Gehrig’s disease). That day, we lost a pure genius and it was a very sad day for the whole world. Hawking is still remembered to this day and even though he is not with us today, his words will always be here and they will keep inspiring us.

So, here are some quotes by Stephen William Hawking that will help you in learning a thing or two:

1.

“Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change”

Many people don’t know how to adapt to the changes around them and some find it very challenging. Hawking wants to convey the message that the capability of becoming habitual and acceptable towards changes is known as intelligence. The more a person knows how to adapt to their surroundings and other changes around them, the more is their level of intelligence. So, we must learn how to adapt to each and every change in our life in order to live a life of peace and harmony. An intelligent person knows how to do that.

 

2.

“Life would be tragic if it weren’t funny”

There’s a lot we go through every day if not every second. And the only thing that keeps us positive through these situations, is humor. It is an essential part of life as it helps you in keeping a positive mindset even in the harshest conditions. No matter what you’re going through, a good and funny joke is enough to tickle your funny bones. So, we must learn to have a good sense of humor in order to live a positive and fulfilled life.

 

3. 

“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”

A statement that sounds very simple when you hear it in your mind for the first time. However, it has a very deep meaning if you closely think about it. Stephen Hawking wants to say that you have the ability to change or improve anything and everything that happens in your life. We can take the example of Hawking himself, he never gave up and did what he wanted to do with his life even with his deadly disease. Being differently-abled never stopped him from achieving greatness and success. So, why must anything stop us from doing so?

 

4. 

“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”

There’s a question that pops up in everyone’s mind at least once in their lifetime… who has the ability to achieve anything and everything in life? The answer is… you, my friend. Yes, if you think about it, we are just a tiny fragment of a humungous and possibly expanding Universe and yet, we are able to understand a lot of aspects about it. If this doesn’t motivate you to achieve what you want to achieve, then I don’t know what will.

 

5.

“People won’t have time for you if you are always angry or complaining”

There’s a very simple and understandable meaning of this statement, be humble. If you will always talk with anger or complain about something, people will most definitely avoid you. And that will make you even more frustrated. So, treat everyone with the respect they deserve and stay in harmony with everybody. Always try to listen before you act or speak… this will help you a lot to stay in harmony with those around you and in your life.

Forgiveness After The Storm

Forgiveness After The Storm

The muse of poetry in its depths stalls the ensue of thee,Drowning in the sparse spectacle of hope left, one dives into the waters of misery.Triabilsing in the painful stance of existence, death in its allure creeps behind,To be or not be in the bane of tormenting breaths, in their truth one seems to find,

The hostility that binds, convulsion in its gloating flair laughs hysterically at the corpse of being,Dreariness to live in its slow burn writhes the only ounce of light left to see.The void of embracing the freshness of unadulterated air forges to question the beauty,Of living a life that could lead in the lightness of radiance and the smiles of unbridled glee.

The trueness of being lapses in the oscillation of turbulence and the sea of calm,Yet the tides of uncertain syllables that breed animosity render the sou

The Aesthetic Epidemic: Understanding the Roots of Lookism

The Aesthetic Epidemic

We care about more than just ourselves – we care about our loved ones, our communities, and the world around us. We are affected by tragic events, especially when a child is murdered, regardless of where it happens. It deeply impacts us and makes us feel disheartened. Moral evils raise doubts about the goodness of the world and the value of existence, especially for those who believe in a benevolent deity. However, anyone can contemplate the purpose and value of the universe in light of such evils. We may not need to worry about the value of the Universe and instead focus on finding value in our own lives or the lives of our loved ones. The concept of value is subjective and can be created by us.

The important question is what we should value or find pleasure in. Some people may try to ignore moral evil by focusing only on their own lives and loved ones, but this narrow perspective is unsatisfying for most. I

An Open Letter To The Hustlers

An Open Letter To The Hustlers

To be or not to be, to go all in or to unwind and relax, we question our dreams, running in constant chase of our quests to come true, we are the ones who never sleep. Dreamers we are called, the ones who passionately strive in the endeavours of the best they could ever be, here is a letter to me, a letter to you. In the stride of embracing the best you have ever been, nurture your soul before the onset of the abundance in you that lies unseen.

Too bold, too much for your age, you are doing too much, how often have you heard these notions been used to describe you? As we tirelessly strive to achieve the next goal we have in our mind, we are often told that we are being hard on ourselves, to enjoy life a little. Life in its entirety passes by us in its dynamic flair, and the existence we envisage holds unique individuality to each one of us. The choices one makes for themselves belies them and them only, and t

How To Remain Centered And Calm In Face Of Difficulty

My life is a mess and I have nothing to be grateful about! I witness myself say this phrase from time to time, where life plonks us into the desperation of ebb and flow of wilderness and things not going in our favour.

It is easy to say we are grateful and in complete balance when things are going well and life feels like the warm embrace of the sun shining on a Sunday morning. But the real test lies in remaining grateful and centred when life feels like spinning out of control.

While it is easier said than done, here are some reminders that might help you get through the days that feel like a burden –

1) This too shall pass, no moment in time that feels permanent loses its impermanence. We often lose hope when things don’t go our way and during these sad days, we should remember, that t

15 Most Liberating Thoughts For Someone Who Needs It

Our life unfolds in a succession of revelations of who we are. It is when we sit down and repeat the same sentence in our head over and over again, in every action we perform, every activity we indulge ourselves in, does it indulges into our existence as a habit.

The key to having a sense of liberation is allowing life to flow through, not forcing anything and more essentially not resisting change. I believe that our life improves in the direct proportionality of how often we are exposed to situations where are forced to challenge our age-old beliefs and counterfeited perceptions and seek the greater version of ourselves. When we get too comfortable in the comfort zones we build for ourselves, we do not grow into the people we are meant to be. Sadly most people embrace change only when metamorphosis is the less painful and only possible option.

I know that
