物理學家霍金(Stephen Hawking)今日度過73歲生日,全球向他送上生日祝福,其實,他亦早已送了最好的禮物給大家,除了對科學的貢獻外,亦有不少發人深省的金句。

《赫芬頓郵報》(The Huffington Post)分享霍金的 9句金句,當中蘊藏大智慧,大家能否從中得到啟發?

談宇宙是否存在:

「如果我們找到這個問題的答案,那就是人類的終極勝利,因為到時我們就會知道上帝想什麼。」

"If we find the answer to that, it would be the ultimate triumph of human reason - for then we would know the mind of God"

談自己患有運動神經元疾病:

「21歲時,我已近乎絕望。但其後所得都是額外恩賜。」

"My expectations were reduced to zero when I was 21. Everything since then has been a bonus"

談黑洞:

「愛因斯坦說:『上帝不玩擲骰子的遊戲。』但他是錯的。黑洞的研究顯示,上帝不但擲骰子,還有時會把骰子擲到我們看不到的地方,迷惑我們。」

"Einstein was wrong when he said, 'God does not play dice'. Consideration of black holes suggests, not only that God does play dice, but that he sometimes confuses us by throwing them where they can't be seen"

談UFO:

「我不把不明飛行物體報告當作一回事。為什麼它們只在好此道者和怪人面前出現呢?」

"I am discounting reports of UFOs. Why would they appear only to cranks and weirdos? "

談著作銷情:

「我希望機場的書店也賣我的書。」

"I want my books sold on airport bookstalls"

談名氣:

「我擁有名氣有一個壞處:就是無論我到世界哪一個角落,都有人認得我。對我來說,光戴墨鏡和假髮是不夠的。輪椅令我無處可逃。」

"The downside of my celebrity is that I cannot go anywhere in the world without being recognised. It is not enough for me to wear dark sunglasses and a wig. The wheelchair gives me away"

談智商:

「我對這沒有概念,吹噓自己智商的人都是失敗者。」

"I have no idea. People who boast about their IQ are losers"

談人類:

「我們是一顆小行星中的一種高級猴子而已,而且只是圍繞著一顆平平無奇的恆星。但是,我們能理解宇宙,這令我們變得不一樣。」

"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"

談安樂死:

「當事人如果想結束自己生命,他有權付諸行動。但我認為這是大錯特錯的。生命或許不美好,但總有一些可做的事和獲得成功的機會,活着就有希望。」

“The victim should have the right to end his life, if he wants. But I think it would be a great mistake. However bad life may seem, there is always something you can do, and succeed at. While there's life, there is hope."
