Stephen Hawking's Paralympic Wisdom

Three great quotes I picked up from Stephen Hawking at last night's Paralympic Games opening ceremony: 

“Try to make sense of what you see, and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious.”

“There ought to be something very special about the boundary conditions of the universe, and what can be more special than that is there is no boundary… And there should be no boundary to human endeavour.”

"We are all different, there is no such thing as a standard or run-of-the-mill human being, but we share the same human spirit. What is important is that we have the ability to create… This creativity can take many forms, from physical achievement to theoretical physics… However difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at.”
