Stephen Hawking/Quotes
1. Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change.
2. The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.
3. 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.
