Some of his best quote are below

 

Life would be tragic if it weren’t funny.
Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change.
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.
My goal is simple. It is a complete understanding of the universe, why it is as it is and why it exists at all.
I have no idea. People who boast about their IQ are losers.
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.
People won’t have time for you if you are always angry or complaining.
The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.
Not only does God play dice, but… he sometimes throws them where they cannot be seen.
I’m not afraid of death, but I’m in no hurry to die. I have so much I want to do first.

I salute to this Man.
