7 quotes by Stephen Hawking to educate your obtuse mind
At the age of 21, doctors diagnosed Stephen Hawking of a rare motor neuron disease. This hit the young graduate very hard who would later become a prodigy and inspiration to everyone on earth. He fell into the dark alleys of depression and like every person in depression, it was hard for him to even go through 24 hours of a day.
Later, in an interview he shared his battle with depression by comparing them to black holes.
The message of this lecture is that 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.
And out he came. Stephen Hawking is not just an inspiration for persons with disabilities or people going through depression or anyone facing hard time in their life. An embodiment of somebody excelling at the game of life even after being thrown in front of all possible life struggles combined, THAT IS STEPHEN HAWKING.
And as he passes away, let us remember him with these inspiring and educating quotes.
Similar to Einstein, Stephen Hawking was a big advocate of curiosity and knowledge. However, he also emphasized on the impact of illusion of knowledge. And he considered it worse than ignorance.
Hawking’s first year as a doctoral student was difficult. He was very disappointed to find that he had been assigned Dennis William Sciama, one of the founders of modern cosmology, as a supervisor rather than noted astronomer Fred Hoyle.
He also found his training in mathematics inadequate for work in general relativity and cosmology.
Dreadful disabilities prevented the genius from speaking a word but he rose himself above them to become a brilliant mathematician and teacher and our guide to the complex understanding of universe and creation.
The mastermind was always open about his motor neuron disease and the depression that came with it. He shared that he was depressed when doctors gave him only few more years to live and that he had given up on life.
However, Doctors later suggested him to continue his graduation and he couldn’t think of other better option to spend rest of his time upon.
Holding the beacon of Human Race in the multiverse for major part of his life, Stephen Hawking had a great sense of humor. During an interview when the interviewer asked him-“Does multiple universe theory means there is a universe out there where I am smarter than you?”
The genius replied, “And also a universe where you’re funny.”
Stephen Hawking had always been clear with his opinion about everything ranging from the possibilities of multiverse, time, space to existence of life, soul and god. He had always been a realist
Stephen has given this world his understanding of time, black holes, existence of universe and many more memorable cameos in numerous classics. He will surely be missed by people from every sphere of life. In addition to being a genius mathematician and a brilliant scientist, he was great sport too.
