A toast to Stephen Hawking. Such a great contributer to the world. Here are some of his awesome quotes:
Intelligence is the ability to change and adapt.
Perfection simply doesn't exist.....Without imperfection, neither you nor I would exist.
Quiet people have the loudest minds.
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.
Life would be tragic if it weren't funny.

There is a fundamental difference between religion, which is based on authority, [and] science, which is based on observation and reason. Science will win, because it works
I believe the simplest explanation is, there is no God. No one created the universe and no one directs our fate. This leads me to a profound realisation that there probably is no heaven and no afterlife either. We have this one life to appreciate the grand design of the universe and for that, I am extremely grateful.
