Goran Hansson says the death of 76-year-old Hawking early Wednesday "is a loss for the world of science". "While there's life, there is hope" - Quoted in People's Daily Online, June 2006.

Venezuelan designer, Oriana Estefania posted an image of Professor Hawking flying towards a black hole with the caption, "Free, heading to your paradise. the universe".

Despite being confined to a wheelchair and speaking through a voice synthesizer, Hawking gained worldwide renown for his ground breaking work on black holes and the theory of relativity.

In an interview with The Guardian in 2011, Hawking told writer Ian Sample that the fear of death wasn't something he considered.

Stephen Hawking was born on the 300th anniversary of Galileo's death and died on the anniversary of Albert Einstein's birth, also known as Pi Day. I have so much I want to do first'.

RIP, Stephen Hawking. You can check out tributes to Hawking for yourself below. Instead, he said that people should live for the now and "seek the greatest value of our action".

In a video conference prior to his visit, Hawking said the institute's chosen focus on quantum theory and space-time was close to his heart.

Thank you Stephen W. Hawking for your scientific theories which unlocked a universe of possibilities that we will continue to explore.

"We are close to the tipping point where global warming becomes irreversible", he said last summer. Hawking became famous in the mainstream public when his 1988 book, A Brief History of Time, was published. "Everyone can enjoy a life of luxurious leisure if the machine-produced wealth is shared, or most people can end up miserably poor if the machine-owners successfully lobby against wealth redistribution".

"Stephen Hawking inspired me before ALS - to keep asking questions, seeking answers, and understanding the cosmic perspective". Which there isn't. I'm an atheist, ' he told El Mundo. "I think they understood most of it". He was also a fan of the Big Bang Theory.

'It's like asking directions to the edge of the earth; The Earth is a sphere; it doesn't have an edge; so looking for it is a futile exercise'.

"No one created the universe and no one directs our fate".

"I believe that the long-term future of the human race must be in space", Hawking said in an interview with CNN in 2008.

Work gives you meaning and goal and life is empty without it. 'Science will win because it works'. The extraterrestrials would probably be far in advance of us.

'It is not necessary to invoke God to light the blue touch paper and set the universe going.

The vice chancellor of the University of Cambridge is praising Stephen Hawking as an inspiration to millions.

He met with Pope John Paul II, Pope Benedict XVI and Pope Francis on a number of occasions.

As well as his own work he would often talk about the social implications of research and the responsibility scientists had to make sure that their work was used for the benefit of society.

"Well done Eddie. I'm very proud of you", Hawking wrote.

That didn't stop him from discussing his no-boundary proposal on the creation of the universe at the Vatican, a decade later.
