Stephen Hawking, a world famous physicist, gave a lecture about black holes at the Royal Institution in London. An interesting point that the scientist made was a theory about black holes being not a dead-end, but a probable way to other universes.

During his lecture, Professor Hawking answered not only scientific but personal questions as well. He gave a very poetic reply when asked about how he overcame difficulties in his life. He compared depression with a black hole:

The message of this lecture is that black holes ain’t as black as they are painted. They are not the eternal prisons they were once thought. Things can get out of a black hole both on the outside and possibly to another universe. So if you feel you are in a black hole, don’t give up — there is a way out.

Stephen Hawking is not only a brilliant scientist whose discoveries turned the orthodox science world upside down but also an enormously strong-willed person. He was diagnosed with motor neurone disease in 1963, and his doctors gave him no more than two years.

However, Professor Hawking didn’t just survive for many more years — he made discoveries, wrote books, gave lectures, and thus, still continues to inspire other people with disabilities. Words of such a man are worth a lot. Even in your darkest hour, always remember: there is always a way out. Maybe even to another universe.
