It's been two years since the "Fast and Furious" star met with a fatal accident in California. Yet, he can't be easily erased from the memories of those who loved him a lot.

Best known for his role as Brian O'Cooper in the "Fast and Furious" franchise, Walker took to the screen as a natural, and played his role in movies such as "Into The Blue", "Eight Below" and "She's All That" with dexterity and ease.

 He modelled as a toddler for a "Pampers" commercial, and was deeply interested in marine biology. An adventure enthusiast, a wonderful dad and a kind friend - this is how Paul Walker will always be remembered as by all.  

We commemorate his birth anniversary on 12 September by recalling some of his best quotes on life, family and friendship.

On his Parents

"I think my mom put it best. She said, 'Little girls soften their daddy's hearts."

On Cars

"I'm a crazy car guy. I've got an airplane hangar full of cars."

His Motto

"I live by 'Go big or go home.' That's with everything. It's like either commit and go for it or don't do it at all. I apply that to everything. I apply that to relationships, I apply that to like sports, I apply that to everything. That's what I live by. That's how I like it".

On Being a Dad

"I'm into being a dad, that's where my focus is most of the time. I'm an actor that's my job, but it's not my life. I have other interests too."

On Happiness

"You know, all that really matters is that the people you love are happy and healthy. Everything else is just sprinkles on the sundae."

On Racing

"If one day the speed kills me, do not cry because I was smiling."
