1870- Stephen Hawking Quotes!

(1)On Fate vs. Free Will:
"I have noticed that even people who claim everything is predetermined and that we can do nothing to change it, look before they cross the road."
(2)On Science vs. Religion:
"There is a fundamental difference between religion, which is based on authority, [and] science, which is based on observation and reason. Science will win, because it works."
(3)On the Advice He Gave His Children:
"One, remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet.
Two, never give up work. Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it.
Three, if you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is there and don't throw it away."

"Science has cut across human barriers. There is no such thing as ‘your science’ or ‘my science’. But this is not in case with religions. The individual truths in different religions have not come together to interact with each other to form a greater truth that could result in improved spiritual life and thinking of mankind. Religions have not found a common theme to work together for the greater good of humanity by assimilating within them some scientific temper.
Then what would be a more evolved/ universal religion?" (‘Ganesha on the dashboard’ by V. Raghunathan & M.A. Eswaran )
