Professor Stephen Williams Hawking was born on January 1, 1942 and died on March 14, 2018. I'm just waking up to the news and didn't even know he came into this world "300 years after the death of Galileo." Like most people, Stephen's parents hoped for a healthy baby. But to imagine a life would change due to ALS on that child's 21st birthday is unimaginable. And to think, up until the 14th day of March one of the greatest minds of all times lived in our lifetime is rather astonishing. The following quotes by Stephen Williams Hawking are something great to think about. My interpretation follows each quote and I would welcome your thoughts on one or more.

 

However difficult life may seem, there is always something

you can do and succeed at.  

 

In other words, there is no boundary in imagination. Everyone has life changes.What makes the difference is how an individual learns to adapt. The first person who came to mind was Debe Maxwell, CRS and Ray. How they spend their time and energy is completely different. Wonder Woman and Super Man - that's what they are! Hawking was the sage who kept things into perspective: Don't be disabled in spirit as well as physically... 

 

People won't have time for you

if you are always angry and complaining

 

I remember the first snarky comment I received on AR many years ago. Several bloggers who supported me back then told me just delete and I did. Delete works like magic! That powerful lesson helped me to understand the definition of "Next!" Professor Hawking was right! Time is valuable. 

 

Work gives you meaning and purpose 

and life is empty without it

 

Even when there is no business, keep working and don't stop. Professor Stephen Hawking was not threatened by challenges - it made him stronger and wiser. Life will be empty, only if you decide it's a lost cause. The cause for agent misunderstandings about no sales can actually improve the direction needed to move towards future life goals. Stephen Hawking showed the world that the mind controls our destiny. Although it's a well-known fact he spent his life being "wheelchair-bound on a computerized voice system for communication," he was a family man with three children and three grandchildren and he never stopped contributing to the world at large. 

 

In sum, there will always be unforeseeable circumstances that are outside of ones control. Figuring things out without being dependent on others to listen to whining or complaining makes you stronger and smarter. Professor Stephen Hawking left a legacy. In hindsight critical analysis is a prerequisite for happiness and success.

Patricia, time is everything and we don't know when it will be gone. You made some very good points here. One thing it brought to my mind is people need to stay busy. Growing up in the south, I remember hearing this as a kid, "Idle hands are the devil's workshop" which I didn't know at the time is from Proverbs. If you stay busy whether working, caring for your family, studying or volunteering, you'll be happier and healthier. It promotes self worth and a healthy mind. It also helps you appreciate the time you do have to relax.

Patricia there are few people who have had the impact Stephen Hawking had.  He was one of the truly great minds, and will be remembered through out history.

Kristin Johnston - REALTOR® - I feel the same about you. I feel it in my bones! I made a concerted effort about two years ago to do the same thing and it has opened up the door for more positive people to come into my life. I appreciate knowing that up there in Waukesha, WI, people can count on you. I count on you and consider you a well-groomed professional who is considerate of others. 

Thank you!

George Souto - We were very fortunate to have lived during his life time. What a difference one man made and he wasn't a celebrity, an athlete, a fanatic, or the Incredible Hulk who pretended to be Super Man. There was nothing superficial about him. But wasn't Stephen Hawking a shining example of a humble heart who overcame life's greatest challenges. He gave us hope. His legacy lives on forever.

Carla Freund - There are so many things you said in your comment that resonated with me strongly. Staying busy is the best way to live. It was as if I just read a random paragraph from the New Testament in language I didnt have to decipher. 

What you provided was wisdom beyond any words I have written. Sincerely, I appreciate you and your written words. Obviously, you grew up to know work values and common courtesy. Thank you, so much.

Endre Barath, Jr. - Coincidence or not, that Galileo connection is not something to ignore. He gave rise to hope and understanding about our Universe. And we, the people in ordinary life with healthy bodies have kept our noses in business, tennis matches, or whatever, not even aware of all that he did since he was diagnosed with ALS. It makes me want to take a stand and start a campaign for Life Time Achievements in lieu of the Oscars who play the parts of real people.

Debbie Reynolds - I was so upset by it too, I honestly wanted to quit blogging. I was deeply troubled by the snarky comments and couldn't understand why someone who didn't even know me get so critical and mean. The encouragement I got to DELETE was very good advice, but even that was hard for me to do. If there's one think I know is true for you is that you believe in unity, peace, kindness, and compassion for others. Plus you ae always a cheerleader for success and relationship building. Thank you, Debbie.

Patricia he was a very remarkable man and I'm guessing he's enjoying his ride through space and making new amazing discoveries.  I so enjoyed listening to his theories and playing with them in my mind....fascinating stuff. And as for Miss Debe Maxwell, CRS & Ray - they are the dynamo duo and then some!

Hi Patrici

Stephen Hawking was, indeed, an amazing man in many ways. He has been such a inspiring fixture of the scientific community, and of our society, for so long and it's hard to believe he has gone. I liked all three quotes, but in particular enjoyed your thoughts and discussion!

So glad I found this one Patricia. It's beautiful - as is the ever-shining soul of Stephen Hawking. 

As for someone's lack of kindness - it reflects on them. Always. Delete, delete, delete. :)

Patricia, what an inspirational post you have shared with us.

We can find so many examples of people who did not fall for the lie that they were handicapped. Unfortunately, we live in a world that does not encourage people to use their minds. The mind is the most powerful of all creation. When there are physical limitations the mind will adjust and give prominence to other of our faculties. 

The mind is capable of far more than we can even imagine.

If we stop complaining and feeling sorry for ourselves we will rise to new levels of thought and achievement.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I am now well reminded.

Dear Patricia,

If I had as much brains as Stephen Hawking had in his toenails, I would be pretty happy. He surely gave the rest of us much to ponder & a great lead to follow.

Patricia Feager, Stephen Hawking is a loss to all of us.  He was a great genius, physicist, cosmologist and also managed to be a best-seller author.  He had a mad love affair with the Universe and its stars, black holes, and galaxies and never stopped wondering why mankind did not use their 3-lb brain... I admire all his courage and work ethics;  he lived 55 years with the horrible disease.
