A Stephen Hawking quote

Something inspirational:

“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.”

  1. I think people do give up too easily. There is something out there for everyone. You just have to find out what it is and not give up.

    1. Thanks Lisa. You’re right, we do sometimes give up too easily, either because of apprehension or fear.

      Generally speaking, if what we had to deal with was always easy, I think we would all try to ‘have a go.’

      I think Stephen Hawking’s quote is spot on. There is always something we can do, that we can do, we must try not to give up.

  2. Absolutely brilliant quote and from a man who has the most difficult life any of us could ever imagine.

    There are only few people in the public eye who I can say are truly inspirational, but Stephen Hawking is right at the very top of my list.

    1. I agree. For his inspiration and determination he would be at the very top of my list. The majority of us would probably have given up by now.

      He truly is inspirational in more ways than one.

  3. These are very encouraging words and I just simply love this quotation.

    We all matter in the scheme of things and giving up should never be an option.

    1. Thanks Tim. I agree with you. Unfortunately though, many people feel they are unable to struggle on and just simply give up and this manifests itself in different ways.
