"One, remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Two, never give up work. Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it. Three, if you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is there and don't throw it away."

Stephen Hawking

Fun fact:

Prior to staring an industry job, never lived in a city with less than 5 million people - moving to the suburbs was quite a culture shock at first!
