"You're only given one little spark of madness. You mustn't lose it."
"Genie, you're free"
"Isn't it mind-blowing how many times and ways Robin Williams touched your life with his work? For so long. What a gift he gave."
"I'll remember him as a superb comic, a unique comedian in many ways. He was quite a physical comic, he was very sharp, he had some brilliant material, some very topical, satirical stuff. There was a tremendous warmth you got from him."
Sir Kenneth Branagh
"Robin Williams was one of life's gentlemen. His kindness and warmth were exceptional. We've lost a great talent and a good man."
"Really saddened to hear Robin Williams has died. He was a Catherine wheel of comic energy - brilliant, irrepressible, inspired. A true genius. His imagination was like electricity - flowed through him, lit him up, sparked wildly, consumed him. He inspired my generation."
"Robin Williams made the world a little bit better. RIP."
"He was a sweet LOVELY man. He ran high voltage, mind always going. It was who he was. I know well... many X's. From high there is only low. So sad."
"We have lost one of our most inspired and gifted comic minds, as well as one of this generation's greatest actors. To watch Robin work, was a magical and special privilege... He truly was one of the few people who deserved the title of 'genius'."
"He just had this incredible sweetness to him that was just so genuine and very striking. It was really clear I think to anyone who met him, just what... a sweet, joyful spirit he had to the people he was around."
"Robin was both my friend and my hero, a unique talent and a kind and generous man; the world will be a much poorer place without him."

"So sad to think about this. Hard to speak. Hard to say. Hard to take. All I can think about is what a joy he was to be with. I'm devastated. My heart is broken by this news."
"I never met anyone who loved making people laugh more than Robin."
"I feel stunned and so sad about Robin. I'm sad for the world of comedy. And so very sad for his family. And I'm sad for Robin. He always lit up when he was able to make people laugh, and he made them laugh his whole life long.... tirelessly. He was one of a kind. There will not be another. Please God, let him now rest in peace."
"Devastating news about Robin Williams - knew him a little and liked him a whole lot more. A brain wired like no other and so so kind."
"Robin Williams, the most astonishingly funny, brilliant, profound and silly miracle of mind and spirit, has left the planet. He was a giant heart, a fireball friend, a wondrous gift from the gods. Now the selfish bastards have taken him back."

"I really was blessed to have to been associated with him for a number of his incredible works over the years, from his 'Mork and Mindy' days at Paramount to 'Dead Poets Society,' 'Good Morning, Vietnam' and of course, 'Aladdin'. His was truly one of the most brilliant and singular performances in the history of animation. For me, it was one of the most breathtaking, pure moments of creativity I think I have ever witnessed. Aladdin would not be the classic movie it is without his brilliance."

"Such a tragic loss. I will always have amazing memories of Robin Williams. Repect and love goes out to his family."
"My thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Robin Williams for great loss. He was a kind man. I wish him peace and his family comfort.
"Whenever I had him on my show it was like someone had pulled the pin on a grenade and thrown it into the middle of the studio. He was... an explosive presence."
"He was very influential on me. He had a terrible compulsion to perform - he would come on at the Comedy Store. He wasn't really improvising, he just had a vast amount of material that he would reorder in different ways. He was a nice bloke."
"Robin Williams made the world laugh & think. I will remember & honour that. A great man, artist and friend. I will miss him beyond measure."

I met him when I was 13 and a huge fan and he was so kind and I watched him be kind to every fan i ever saw him with. His impact on the world was so positive. He did so much good for people. He made me and so many people laugh so hard for a very long time."
