I grew up thinking that a research scientist was a natural thing to be. Stephen Hawking

Time can behave like another direction in space under extreme conditions. Stephen Hawking

If we want to travel into the future, we just need to go fast. Really fast. And I think the only way we're ever likely to do that is by going into space. Stephen Hawking

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

As a child, I wanted to know how things worked and to control them. With a friend, I built a number of complicated models that I could control. Stephen Hawking

I don't care much for equations myself. This is partly because it is difficult for me to write them down, but mainly because I don't have an intuitive feeling for equations. Stephen Hawking

Science fiction can be exciting and very gripping, but it doesn't tell us anything about the universe in which we live. Stephen Hawking

I think my dad [ Stephen Hawking] would have been pleased if I had turned out a scientist because he truly believes that is the most interesting career open to anyone. But he also believes that you have to follow your own path in life and so he certainly wasn't going to push me toward theoretical physics when it didn't look like I was going in that direction naturally. Stephen Hawking

Though we feel we can choose what we do, our understanding of the molecular basis of biology shows that biological processes are governed by the laws of physics and chemistry and therefore are as determined as the orbits of the planets. Stephen Hawking

Because there is a law such as gravity, the Universe can and will create itself from nothing. Spontaneous creation is the reason there is something rather than nothing, why the Universe exists, why we exist. It is not necessary to invoke God to light the blue touch paper and set the Universe going. Stephen Hawking

Speech has allowed the communication of ideas, enabling human beings to work together to build the impossible. Mankind's greatest achievements have come about by talking, and its greatest failures by not talking. It doesn't have to be like this. Our greatest hopes could become reality in the future. With the technology at our disposal, the possibilities are unbounded. All we need to do is make sure we keep talking. Stephen Hawking

You cannot predict the future. Stephen Hawking

It's the gravity that shapes the large scale structure of the universe, even though it is the weakest of four categories of forces Stephen Hawking

In his eyes shone the reflection of the most beautiful planet in the Universe-a planet that is not too hot and not too cold; that has liquid water on the surface and where the gravity is just right for human beings and the atmosphere is perfect for them to breathe; where there are mountains and deserts and oceans and islands and forests and trees and birds and plants and animals and insects and people-lots and lots of people. Where there is life. Some of it, possibly, intelligent. Stephen Hawking

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 realization 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. Stephen Hawking

Scientists tend to risk theories they admire Stephen Hawking

Because imaginary time behaves like another direction in space, histories in imaginary time can be closed surfaces, like the surface of the Earth, with no [existential] beginning or end. Stephen Hawking

The human capacity for guilt is such that people can always find ways to blame themselves Stephen Hawking

I'm the archetype of a disabled genius, or should I say a physically challenged genius, to be politically correct. At least I'm obviously physically challenged. Whether I'm a genius is more open to doubt. Stephen Hawking

While there's life, there is hope. Stephen Hawking

Although quantum mechanics has been around for nearly 70 years, it is still not generally understood or appreciated, even by those that use it to do calculations. Stephen Hawking

Love the neighbor. But don't get caught. Stephen Hawking

Children in backseats cause accidents. Accidents in backseats cause children. Stephen Hawking

The more you learn, the more you know. The more you know, the more you forget. The more you forget, the less you know. So why bother to learn. Stephen Hawking

It was recently discovered that research causes cancer in rats. Stephen Hawking

Do you believe in first love - or should I pass by again? Stephen Hawking

Before we understand science, it is natural to believe that God created the universe. But now science offers a more convincing explanation. Stephen Hawking

The thing about smart people is that they seem like crazy people to dumb people. Stephen Hawking

If everything in the universe depends upon everything else in a fundamental way, it might be impossible to get close to a full solution by investigating parts of the problem in isolation. Stephen Hawking

Then we shall... be able to take part in the discussion of the question of why it is that we and the universe exist. If we find the answer to that, it would be the ultimate triumph of human reason - for then we would know the mind of God. Stephen Hawking

I don't know what my IQ is. People who gloat about their IQ's are losers Stephen Hawking

I put a lot of effort into writing 'A Briefer History' at a time when I was critically ill with pneumonia because I think that it's important for scientists to explain their work, particularly in cosmology. This now answers many questions once asked of religion. Stephen Hawking

I wouldnt be here today if it were not for the NHS, I have received a large amount of high-quality treatment without which I would not have survived. Stephen Hawking

So next time someone complains that you have made a mistake, tell him that may be a good thing. Because without imperfection, neither you nor I would exist Stephen Hawking

There is a real danger that computers will develop intelligence and take over. Stephen Hawking

I'm here to chew gum and kick some ass, and I'm all out of gum. Stephen Hawking

All my life, I have been fascinated by the big questions that face us, and have tried to find scientific answers to them. Stephen Hawking

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. Stephen Hawking

While physics and mathematics may tell us how the universe began, they are not much use in predicting human behavior because there are far too many equations to solve. I'm no better than anyone else at understanding what makes people tick, particularly women. Stephen Hawking

The past, like the future, is indefinite and exists only as a spectrum of possibilities. Stephen Hawking

My advice to other disabled people would be, concentrate on things your disability doesn't prevent you doing well, and don't regret the things it interferes with. Don't be disabled in spirit as well as physically. Stephen Hawking

Scientists have become the bearers of the torch of discovery in our quest for knowledge. Stephen Hawking

No one undertakes research in physics with the intention of winning a prize. It is the joy of discovering something no one knew before. Stephen Hawking

As Irving Good realised in 1965, machines with superhuman intelligence could repeatedly improve their design even further, triggering what Vernor Vinge called a 'singularity.' Stephen Hawking

Throughout history, people have studied pure science from a desire to understand the universe rather than practical applications for commercial gain. But their discoveries later turned out to have great practical benefits. Stephen Hawking

We must develop as quickly as possible technologies that make possible a direct connection between brain and computer, so that artificial brains contribute to human intelligence rather than opposing it. Stephen Hawking

I think the human race doesn't have a future if it doesn't go into space. Stephen Hawking
