    Re: Quotable Quotes 12

    “Remember to 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. And however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at. It matters that you don't just give up.”

    “One of the basic rules of the universe is that nothing is perfect. Perfection simply doesn't exist.....Without imperfection, neither you nor I would exist.”

    “Life would be tragic if it weren't funny.”

    “Quiet people have the loudest minds.”

    “Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change.”

    “Although I cannot move and I have to speak through a computer, in my mind I am free.”

    “I'm not afraid of death, but I'm in no hurry to die.”

    “Nothing is better than reading and gaining more and more knowledge.”

    ~ Stephen Hawking (1942 - 2018)
    "Never look back unless you are planning to go that way." ~ Henry David Thoreau

    Re: Quotable Quotes 12

    "Why should we be in such desperate haste to succeed, and in such desperate enterprises? If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer."

    "If a man walks in the woods for love of them half of each day, he is in danger of being regarded as a loafer. But if he spends his days as a speculator, shearing off those woods and making the earth bald before her time, he is deemed an industrious and enterprising citizen."

    "Wealth is the ability to fully experience life."

    "There are moments when all anxiety and stated toil are becalmed in the infinite leisure and repose of nature."

    "Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves."

    "What lies behind us and what lies ahead of us are tiny matters compared to what lives within us."

    "It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see."

    ~ Henry David Thoreau

    ("What lies behind us and what lies ahead of us are tiny matters compared to what lives within us" has also been ascribed to other authors including Emerson and Oliver Wendell Holmes. The actual author was probably Henry S. Haskins in Meditations in Wall Street published in 1940.)

    It's still a great quote, no matter who wrote it.
