I really enjoyed his book on anti-gravity. I couldn't put it down.

Besides his expertise we all know about, he also had a great sense of humour, so keyplyrs comment would sit nicely with him.

We can all learn a lot from some of his down-to-earth message (pun intended). "Look up at the stars and not down at your feet" - Professor Stephen Hawking
