An interesting foray into the personal life of Stephen Hawking. Not too much info on his scientific research though, so if you're looking for his work in physics pick up one of his books instead.

Stephen Hawking: There should be no boundaries to human endeavor. We are all different. However bad life may seem, there is always something you can do, and succeed at. While there's life, there is hope.
"I know what you think, that I don't look like a terribly strong person, but I love him and he loves me. We're going to fight this illness together."
"Your thoughts won't change; it's just no one will know what they are."
''There should be no boundary to human endeavor. However bad life may seem while ther is life there is hope.''
Q: How do you deal with all the attention?
Hawking: I was stopped recently by a tourist in Cambridge, who asked if I was the real Stephen Hawking. I replied I was not and said the real one was much better looking.
Elaine recited Hawking's writing: "Who are we?"
"Why are we here?"
"If we ever learn this,"
"it will be the ultimate
triumph of human reason,"
"for then we would know
the mind of God."
Q: You have said you do not believe in God. Do you have a philosophy of life that helps you?
Hawking: It is clear that we are just an advanced breed of primates on a minor planet orbiting around a very average star in the outer suburb of one among 100 billion galaxies. But, ever since the dawn of civilization, people have craved for an understanding of the underlying order of the world. There ought to be something very special about the boundary conditions of the universe. And what can be more special than that there is no boundary... There should be no boundaries to human endeavor. We are all different. However bad life may seem, there is always something you can do, and succeed at. While there's life, there is hope.
