  Professor Stephen Hawking'srevealed how he has alwaystried to 'lead as full a life as possible,' in response to a plea forinspiring message.


  Other A-list stars, including actor Sir Ian McKellen, athlete JessicaEnnis-Hill, actor Sir David Jason and sailor Dame Ellen MacArthuralso shared some words of wisdom.


  The famous faces put pen to paper for Simon Rhodes after he asked them for encouragingquotes to spur on staff at his legal firm.


  The first to arrive was from the 73-year-old scientists and author, who suffers from motor neurondisease.


  Professor Hawking wrote: 'I have always tried to overcome the limitations of my condition andlead as full a life as possible. I have travelled the world, from the Antarctic to zero gravity.'


  He accompanied his message with a thumb print.


  Mr Rhodes, 46, from Southampton, Hampshire, fired off 25 letters to some of the most famousnames in the country and in total 18 replied.


  In return, he made a £100 donation to a charity of the celebrity respondents choosing.


  Mr Rhodes, who is the managing partner at law firm Trethowans, said: 'I was pleasantly surprisedthat so many came back and it's the little bits where they have gone over and above.


  'But the one where I sat down and held it because I didn't expect to get it was Stephen Hawking. Itmade me smile the most.


  Mr Rhodes came up with the idea last year to motivate the 150-strong staff but wanted to usewords that were not 'corporate speak'.


  He said: 'We all look at these motivational messages like 'sell more' and 'buy more' but they canhave the opposite effect.


  'I wanted something that would motivate and the only way I thought I could do that was not byhaving our words.


  'So I dug out the quotes and wrote to them all saying I was trying to motivate the nextgeneration of our staff.


  'I told them I have read what they have said and how I thought it was motivational and said that ifthey were able to send a signed photograph with a message to our staff at Trethowans I will give£100 to their favorite charity.'


  The quotes and photographs of each of the celebrities have now been split between their newoffice in Southampton and a second office in Salisbury, where they have been hung on the walls ofthe staff seating area.
