Стивен Хокинг

Сегодня умер Стивен Хокинг, физик-теоретик.


По традиции, несколько цитат (saying) великого человека:

I wouldn’t compare it to sex, but it lasts longer. (о моменте научного открытия)

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.

There is a fundamental difference between religion, which is based on authority, [and] science, which is based on observation and reason. Science will win, because it works.

Next time someone complains that you have made a mistake, tell him that may be a good thing. Because without imperfection, neither you nor I would exist.

I have no idea. People who boast about their I.Q. are losers. (на вопрос об уровне IQ)

They are a complete mystery. (о женщинах)

If aliens visit us, the outcome would be much as when Columbus landed in America, which didn’t turn out well for the Native Americans. We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn’t want to meet.

Ингвар Кампрад

Умер Ингвар Кампрад, основатель IKEA.

Без сомнения, один из наиболее успешных предпринимателей всех времен.

Вспомним его “sayings”:

“Only those who are asleep make no mistakes.”

“Everything we earn we need as a reserve.”

“I am very proud to follow the rules of our company.”

“If there is such a thing as good leadership, it is to give a good example. I have to do so for all the IKEA employees.”

“IKEA people do not drive flashy cars or stay at luxury hotels.”

“Our idea is to serve everybody, including people with little money.”

“People say I am cheap, and I don’t mind if they do.”

“We have to still develop the IKEA group. We need many billions of Swiss francs to take on China or Russia.”

“Waste of resources is a mortal sin at IKEA.”

“There are few people who have made so many fiascos in my life as I have.”

“I’m not afraid of turning 80 and I have lots of things to do. I don’t have time for dying.”
