I just heard that Daniel Quillen passed on. I am not familiar with his work and want to celebrate his life by reading some of his papers. Which one(s?) should I read?

I am an algebraic geometer who is comfortable with cohomological methods in his field, but knows almost nothing about homotopy theory. My goal is to gain a better appreciation of Quillen's work, not to advance my own research.

Here I tagged this question as "at.algebraic-topology, algebraic-k-theory" because I think these are the main fields in which Quillen worked. Please add or change this if other tags are appropriate.
