Rest In Peace, Stephen Hawking

Standard

Stephen_Hawking_050506

(https://en.wikipedia.org)

Renowned scientist, philosopher, and author Stephen Hawking has died at the age of 76. Mr. Hawking was a brilliant thinker, someone whose accomplishments put him with the pantheon of great intellects, including Leonardo Da Vinci, Sir Isaac Newton, and Albert Einstein.

At the age of 21, he was diagnosed with the disease ALS and not expected to live for more than a few years at most. His longevity, despite facing a terrible illness, demonstrates his tenacity.  He forged new ideas in science and wrote about those ideas in works that brought such thinking to nonscientists, including, but not limited to,  A Brief History of Time and The Universe In A Nutshell.

He remained optimistic about the future of humanity, especially if we can successfully make our way into space.

The human race was fortunate to have had such a mind. They are indeed rare.

Rest In Peace, Stephen Hawking. (1942-2018)

Quotations on Political Courage and Political Cowardice

Standard

Given the circumstances of the horror of the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida, the hypocrisy of politicians in bed with the NRA and gun-makers, and their inaction about even considering reasonable gun legislation, I wanted to offer three quotations to consider:

“There comes a time when silence becomes betrayal.”

                                                        Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Quotations on Questioning

Standard

I participated in a meeting for the faculty of the Wescoe School of Muhlenberg College in Allentown, PA this morning, and it was one of the best, most productive meetings I have had the privilege of attending. Everyone was open to both discussion and learning from each other. It was refreshing! Among the points of discussion was the importance of questions and questioning. I, therefore, thought a post of quotations on questioning was appropriate today!

“The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.”                                                                                                       Albert Einstein

“Don’t just teach your children to read…
Teach them to question what they read.
Teach them to question everything.”                                                             George Carlin

 

Salman_Rushdie_2011_Shankbone

(https://en.wikiquote.org)

“Original thought, original artistic expression is by its very nature questioning, irreverent, iconoclastic.”                                                     Salman Rushdie
