Así veía la vida Stephen Hawking

Hoy el mundo se ha despertado con la triste noticia del fallecimiento del físico británico, Stephen Hawking. Una de las personas más brillantes e inspiradoras de nuestro tiempo, con el que tuvimos la suerte de compartir ciudad durante varios años.

Como curiosidad, os podemos contar que se dejaba ver bastante por Cambridge y que era aficionado a la tradición británica del ‘afternoon tea’, ya que varios de nuestros amigos coincidieron en haberle visto, tomando el té en el jardín de un hotel junto al río Cam.

Si algo impresionaba de este hombre, más allá de su genialidad, era su visión optimista de la vida y su sentido del humor. Hoy nos despedimos de él con algunas de sus frases más inspiradoras y divertidas.

‘The theory of everything’


“I have noticed that even people who claim everything is predetermined and that we can do nothing to change it, look before they cross the road.”


“Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change.”


“So remember, look at the stars and not at your feet.”


“Life would be tragic if it weren’t funny.”


“It is no good getting furious if you get stuck. What I do is keep thinking about the problem but work on something else. Sometimes it is years before I see the way forward. In the case of information loss and black holes, it was 29 years.”


“I was never top of the class at school, but my classmates must have seen potential in me, because my nickname was ‘Einstein.”


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


“If I had to choose a superhero to be, I would pick Superman. He’s everything that I’m not.”


“It is a waste of time to be angry about my disability. One has to get on with life and I haven’t done badly. People won’t have time for you if you are always angry or complaining.”


“Keeping an active mind has been vital to my survival, as has been maintaining a sense of humor.”


“I have lived with the prospect of an early death for the last 49 years. I’m not afraid of death, but I’m in no hurry to die. I have so much I want to do first.”


“Although I cannot move and I have to speak through a computer, in my mind I am free.”


Buen viaje Stephen ✨

Las frases de Oscar Wilde que te alegrarán el día

Porque a veces los martes parecen más largos que un día sin pan, que mejor que aliñar tu día con una chispa de humor de la mano de este archiconocido escritor.

(OSCAR WILDE, PIXABAY)

Y es que, aunque Oscar Wilde fuera irlandés, algo parece indicar que sus años en la universidad de Oxford le contagiaron de ese humor tan irónico, y de esa extraordinaria habilidad que tienen los ingleses para mofarse de las cosas logrando mantener la misma expresión facial que un guardia de Buckingham Palace.

Are you ready to have a laugh? Let’s begin!


“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”

“Sé tú mismo, el resto de papeles ya están cogidos.”


“You can never be overdressed or overeducated.”

“Nunca se puede ir demasiado arreglado ni ser demasiado educado.”


“I can resist anything except temptation.”

“Me puedo resistir a todo excepto a la tentación.”


“Whenever people agree with me I always feel I must be wrong.”

“Cuando la gente está de acuerdo conmigo siempre siento que debo estar equivocado.”


“I don’t want to go to heaven. None of my friends are there.”

“No quiero ir al cielo. Ninguno de mis amigos está allí.”


“I am so clever that sometimes I don’t understand a single word of what I am saying.”

“Soy tan inteligente que a veces no entiendo una sola palabra de lo que estoy diciendo.”


“Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go.”

“Algunas personas causan felicidad a donde van; otras, cuando se van.”


“I never travel without my diary. One should always have something sensational to read in the train.”

“Nunca viajo sin mi diario. Uno siempre debería tener algo sensacional para leer en el tren.”
