Professor Stephen Hawking died early in the morning on March 14 (which happens to be Pi Day and Albert Einstein’s birthday.) Although one of humanity's greatest minds is now gone, many of its thoughts and ruminations will continue to endure for generations.
Here are 12 Stephen Hawking quotes about life, the universe and everything that you don't need a PhD in quantum mechanics to appreciate.
The following quotes come courtesy of Business Insider. They cover everything from coping with a disability (in short; suck it up) to the place of humans in the cosmos (we're basically monkeys with a penchant for understanding stuff.)
While Hawking's landmark PhD thesis "Properties of expanding universes" can be pretty tough going for the layman, these words of wisdom are beautiful in their simplicity.
