霍金還在研究院時被診斷出患有肌萎縮性脊髓側索硬化症(俗稱「漸凍症」),當時醫生表示,患者壽命一般只有2至5年,霍金20歲左右發病,一直對抗頑疾,是非常罕見例子。

「請記著要保持好奇心。仰望星空,別老是俯視腳步,為你所見的尋找意義,驚嘆這宇宙如何形成。無論生命看來是何等艱難,你也有機會有所成就,重點是不要放棄。」
"
Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious. And however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at. It matters that you don't just give up."

「21歲時,我所有期望都歸零。此後的一切都是額外賞賜。」
"
My expectations were reduced to zero when I was 21. Everything since then has been a bonus."

「我發現,就算是那些聲稱沒法改變命運的人,他們在過馬路之前都會左右看。」
"I have noticed even people who claim everything is predestined, and that we can do nothing to change it, look before they cross the road."

「如果生命沒有樂趣,那將是一場悲劇。」
"
Life would be tragic if it weren't funny."

「我的未來無疑烏雲密佈,出人意表的是,現在的我比以前更享受生命。在研究上我開始取得進展。」
“Although there was a cloud hanging over my future, I found, to my surprise, that I was enjoying life in the present more than before. I began to make progress with my research,”

霍金也很關心神及宗教:

「我們有自由相信自己想信的事,而我的立場是『沒有上帝』是最簡單的解釋。沒有創造宇宙、控制我們命運的神。這給我深刻的體會。天堂和死後生命也不太可能存在。我們只有這一次生命去欣賞宇宙的宏大設計,對此我非常感激。」
"
We are each free to believe what we want and it is my view that the simplest explanation is there is no God. No one created the universe and no one directs our fate. This leads me to a profound realization. There is probably no heaven, and no afterlife either. We have this one life to appreciate the grand design of the universe, and for that, I am extremely grateful."

「愛因斯坦錯了——他說『上帝不玩骰子』。對黑洞的研究表明,上帝不光玩骰子,甚至有時候他會把我們弄糊塗,因為他把它們丟到了看不見的地方。」
"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."

對於科學探究,霍金則這樣解釋他一生所追求的:

「我的目標很簡單,就是要徹底了解宇宙,為什麼如是,為什麼會存在。」
"
My goal is simple. It is a complete understanding of the universe, why it is as it is and why it exists at all."

關於霍金,我們還有以下的文章:
