A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking

I liked the movie "The Theory of Everything" better than this book written by Stephen Hawking; both contain his theories.
It's too deep for me. I'm not a fan of physics class. I prefer chemistry or biology.
I'm trying to think of something good to say

Gordon B. Hinckley
“You can be smart and happy or stupid and miserable. . . it's your choice”
Gordon B. Hinckley

Marjorie Pay Hinckley
“I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails.
I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp.
I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children.
I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden.
I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder.
I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived.”
Marjorie Pay Hinckley

W. Somerset Maugham
“He did not care if she was heartless, vicious and vulgar, stupid and grasping, he loved her. He would rather have misery with one than happiness with the other.”
W. Somerset Maugham, Of Human Bondage

C.S. Lewis
“I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.”
C.S. Lewis

Temple Grandin
“I believe that the best way to create good living conditions for any animal, whether it's a captive animal living in a zoo, a farm animal or a pet, is to base animal welfare programs on the core emotion systems in the brain. My theory is that the environment animals live in should activate their positive emotions as much as possible, and not activate their negative emotions any more than necessary. If we get the animal's emotions rights, we will have fewer problem behaviors... All animals and people have the same core emotion systems in the brain.”
Temple Grandin, Animals Make Us Human: Creating the Best Life for Animals
