Everyone knows Stephen Hawking as the brightest man in the world. Hawking was not only a renowned astrophysicist but also was a great father and a philosopher as well. His advice to children proves his passion for work, love and life.
He has passed on three pieces of advice to his children.
1. Always keep working because work gives purpose and meaning in life.
2. Always look at stars, never look down at your feet.
3. If you are lucky enough, you will find love. Never throw it away.
