Fame quotes
Fame
Fame is no sanctuary from the passing of youth... suicide is much easier and more acceptable in Hollywood than growing old gracefully.

- Burchill, Julie
The fame of great men ought to be judged always by the means they used to acquire it.

- La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
RENOWN, n. A degree of distinction between notoriety and fame -- a little more supportable than the one and a little more intolerable than the other. Sometimes it is conferred by an unfriendly and inconsiderate hand. I touched the harp in every key, But found no heeding ear; And then Ithuriel touched me With a revealing spear. Not all my genius, great as'tis, Could urge me out of night. I felt the faint appulse of his, And leapt into the light! W.J. Candleton

- Ambrose Bierce
I would much rather have men ask why I have no statue than why I have one.

- Cato The Elder
Fame has also this great drawback, that if we pursue it, we must direct our lives so as to please the fancy of men.

- Spinoza, Baruch (Benedict de)
You have available to you, right now, a powerful supercomputer. This powerful tool has been used through-out history to take people from rags to riches, from poverty and obscurity to success and fame, from unhappiness and frustration to joy and self-fulfillment, and it can do the same for you.

- Tracy, Brian
Make your ego porous. Will is of little importance, complaining is nothing, fame is nothing. Openness, patience, receptivity, solitude is everything.

- Rainer Maria Rilke
The majority of pop stars are complete idiots in every respect.

- Sade, Marquis De
Celebrity is the advantage of being known to people who we don't know, and who don't know us.

- Chamfort, Sebastien-Roch Nicolas De
Fame is proof that the people are gullible.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
I'm afraid of losing my obscurity. Genuineness only thrives in the dark. Like celery.

- Huxley, Aldous
The journalists have constructed for themselves a little wooden chapel, which they also call the Temple of Fame, in which they put up and take down portraits all day long and make such a hammering you can't hear yourself speak.

- Lichtenberg, Georg C.
To many fame comes too late.

- Camoens, Luis De
If fame is to come only after death, I amin no hurry for it.

- Martial [Marcus ValeriusMartialis]
The fame you earn has a different taste from the fame that is forced upon you.

- Vanderbilt, Gloria
The professional celebrity, male and female, is the crowning result of the star system of a society that makes a fetish of competition. In America, this system is carried to the point where a man who can knock a small white ball into a series of holes in the ground with more efficiency than anyone else thereby gains social access to the President of the United States.

- Mills, C. Wright
There is no luck in literary reputation. They who make up the final verdict upon every book are not the partial and noisy readers of the hour when it appears; but a court as of angels, a public not to be bribed, not to be entreated, and not to be overawed, decides upon every manís title to fame.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Fame is a constant effort

- Renard, Jules
People should realize we're jerks just like them.

- Bono, Edward De
Fame and glory are fleeting, especially in the music business. That's why completing my degree and graduating from college were priorities.

- Clay Aiken
