However difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do, and succeed at. It matters that you don’t just give up,” Stephen Hawking was once quoted as saying.

The renowned English physicist, who wrote “A Brief History of Time” that later inspired the Oscar-nominated film “The Theory of Everything” in 2014, has died. He was 76 years old.

Professor Hawking died peacefully at his home in Cambridge in the early hours of this morning. His family have kindly requested that they be given the time and privacy to mourn his passing, but they would like to thank everyone who has been by Professor Hawking’s side—and supported him—throughout his life,” reads the statement provided by his family’s spokesperson.

His three children – Lucy, Robert and Tim – also issued a joint statement saying, “We are deeply saddened that our beloved father passed away today. He was a great scientist and an extraordinary man whose work and legacy will live on for many years. His courage and persistence with his brilliance and humour inspired people across the world. He once said, ‘It would not be much of a universe if it wasn’t home to the people you love.’ We will miss you forever.”

We’ll leave you with another inspiring quote:

RIP Professor Hawking, and may we all strive to live as fully as he did.
