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.
4. My goal is simple. It is a complete understanding of the universe, why it is as it is and why it exists at all.
5. Life would be tragic if it weren’t funny.
6. I have no idea. People who boast about their IQ are losers.
7. People won’t have time for you if you are always angry or complaining.
8. We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn’t want to meet.
9. We are just an advanced breed of monkeys on a minor planet of a very average star. But we can understand the Universe. That makes us something very special.
