Stephen Hawking quotes page 2

It surprises me how disinterested we are today about things like physics, space, the universe
and philosophy of our existence, our purpose, our final destination. It's a crazy world out
there. Be curious.
Stephen Hawking

We should seek the greatest value of our action.
Stephen Hawking

I would like nuclear fusion to become a practical power source. It would provide an
inexhaustible supply of energy, without pollution or global warming.
Stephen Hawking

I have lived with the prospect of an early death for the last 49 years. I'm not afraid of death,
but I'm in no hurry to die. I have so much I want to do first.
Stephen Hawking

I think computer viruses should count as life. I think it says something about human nature
that the only form of life we have created so far is purely destructive. We've created life in
our own image.
Stephen Hawking

I'm not religious in the normal sense. 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.
Stephen Hawking

We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we
wouldn't want to meet.
Stephen Hawking

My goal is simple. It is a complete understanding of the universe, why it is as it is and why it
exists at all.
Stephen Hawking

Government works best under the glare of public scrutiny. Absent such scrutiny, abuses
occur.
Stephen Hawking

I have lived with the prospect of an early death for the last 49 years. I'm not afraid of death,
but I'm in no hurry to die. I have so much I want to do first.
Stephen Hawking

What could define God is thinking of God as the embodiment of the laws of nature. However,
this is not what most people would think of that God. They made a human-like being with
whom one can have a personal relationship. When you look at the vast size of the universe
and how insignificant an accidental human life is in it, that seems most impossible.
Stephen Hawking

The whole history of science has been the gradual realization that events do not happen in
an arbitrary manner, but that they reflect a certain underlying order, which may or may not
be divinely inspired.
Stephen Hawking

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.
Stephen Hawking
