Here are a few thoughts from this great mind…
It may be that our role on this planet is not to worship God – but to create him.
I don’t believe in God but I’m very interested in her.
The greatest tragedy in mankind’s entire history may be the hijacking of morality by religion.
The only way to discover the limits of the possible is to go beyond them into the impossible.
When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.
We have to abandon the idea that schooling is something restricted to youth. How can it be, in a world where half the things a man knows at 20 are no longer true at 40 – and half the things he knows at 40 hadn’t been discovered when he was 20?
