One of my favourite quotes from Hawkings - on the topic of computer viruses:

"I think it says something about human nature that the only form of life we have created so far is purely destructive."

"The best revenge is massive success."



I could post many more, including great ones in German but I don't think they will keep their meaning if I translate them.

I had just finished feeding my dog when I remembered a quote my grandfather used to tell me back in Germany. Can't believe it slipped my mind. I'm not sure where this saying originates but this is the English version:

"You don't drown by falling in the water, you drown by staying there."

I alway say to my apprentices "if Stephen Hawkins is so smart, why can't he walk?" Usually followed by "get back under there and stop complaining". I also like the Simpsons quote "beer, the cause and solution to all of life's problems"

On predicting a close result - "it's harder to pick than a broken nose"
A negative assessment of a rival's intelligence - "If brains were dynamite he wouldn't have enough to blow his nose". Another one from Cheech & Chong - "If he had another brain it'd die of loneliness".

And my favourite quote is in my signature.
