A Great Mind Has Departed

Stephen Hawking died at home in the early morning hours. He was 76. There is so much one could say about this incredible man. One of my favorite Hawking quotes is this simple one:

The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.

The earlier in life one learns this lesson, the more you will benefit from it. I wish I’d learned it earlier.
