Stephen Hawking Theoretical physicist
On black holes: “Einstein was wrong when he said, ‘God does not play dice’. Consideration of black holes suggests, not only that God does play dice, but that he sometimes confuses us by throwing them where they can’t be seen.” — The Nature Of Space And Time, published 1996.
On God: “It is not necessary to invoke God to light the blue touch paper and set the universe going.” — The Grand Design, published 2010.
On commercial success: “I want my books sold on airport bookstalls.” — Interview in The New York Times, December 2004.
On fame: “The downside of my celebrity is that I cannot go anywhere in the world without being recognised. It is not enough for me to wear dark sunglasses and a wig. The wheelchair gives me away.” — Interview on Israeli TV, December 2006.
