He had so many great comments/quotes, but here are a couple of my favorites:

 

“My expectations were reduced to zero when I was 21. Everything since then has been a bonus."

 

“I regard the brain as a computer which will stop working when its components fail. There is no heaven or afterlife for broken down computers; that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark.”

I had not heard that first one; it is now one of my favorites too!

Excellent. Here’s another:

 

“It would not be much of a universe if it wasn’t home to the people you love.”

He was on StarTalk with Neil deGrasse Tyson just the other day. Worth checking out if it interests you.

 

I just recently discovered the StarTalk series, a few weeks ago, and have watched all the current season episodes including the Stephen Hawking one. It is on the National Geographic channel for those interested.

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.

 

Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change.

 

People who boast about their I.Q. are losers.
