(ABC News) -- Relatives, friends and celebrities ignited social media with reactions to the death of beloved actor Robin Williams.
His daughter, Zelda Williams, posted a quote by Antoine de Saint-Exupery, the French writer and poet.
"You - you alone will have the stars as no one else has them ... In one of the stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing. And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing, when you look at the sky at night ... You - only you - will have stars that can laugh," the quote reads.
She also wrote a statement following the quote: "I love you. I miss you. I'll try to keep looking up."
"Robin Williams was an airman, a doctor, a genie, a nanny ... and everything in between. But he was one of a kind." —President Obama— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) August 12, 2014
