Black Hole Quotations

The Holocaust, taken by itself, is a black hole. To look at it directly is to be swallowed up by it.
David Novak

Neil deGrasse Tyson

Although almost every theoretical physicist agrees with my prediction that a black hole should glow like a hot body, it would be very difficult to verify experimentally because the temperature of a macroscopic black hole is so low.
Stephen Hawking

The internet to me is kind of like a black hole, and I never really go on it.
Jennifer Lawrence

A black hole really is an object with very rich structure, just like Earth has a rich structure of mountains, valleys, oceans, and so forth. Its warped space whirls around the central singularity like air in a tornado.
Kip Thorne
