fame

Fame quotes
Fame
What desire for fame attends both great and small; better be damned than mentioned not at all!

- Wolcot, John
I got fame and fortune, and I lost my sense of reasoning.

- Richard, Little
Fame hides her head among the clouds.

- Virgil
Heartthrobs are a dime a dozen.

- Pitt, Brad
Happy is the man who hath never known what it is to taste of fame --to have it is a purgatory, to want it is a Hell!

- Bulwer-Lytton, Edward G.
I believe the single most significant decision I can make on a day-to-day basis is my choice of attitude. It is more important than my past, my education, my bankroll, my successes or failures, fame or pain, what other people think of me or say about me, my circumstances, or my position. Attitude keeps me going or cripples my progress. It alone fuels my fire or assaults my hope. When my attitudes are right, there is no barrier too high, no valley too deep, no dream too extreme, no challenge too great for me.

- Swindoll, Charles
Glory is like a circle in the water, Which never ceaseth to enlarge itself, Till by broad spreading it disperses to naught.

- William Shakespeare
IMMODEST, adj. Having a strong sense of one's own merit, coupled with a feeble conception of worth in others. There was once a man in Ispahan Ever and ever so long ago, And he had a head, the phrenologists said, That fitted him for a show. For his modesty's bump was so large a lump (Nature, they said, had taken a freak) That its summit stood far above the wood Of his hair, like a mountain peak. So modest a man in all Ispahan, Over and over again they swore -- So humble and meek, you would vainly seek; None ever was found before. Meantime the hump of that awful bump Into the heavens contrived to get To so great a height that they called the wight The man with the minaret. There wasn't a man in all Ispahan Prouder, or louder in praise of his chump: With a tireless tongue and a brazen lung He bragged of that beautiful bump Till the Shah in a rage sent a trusty page Bearing a sack and a bow-string too, And that gentle child explained as he smiled: "A little present for you." The saddest man in all Ispahan, Sniffed at the gift, yet accepted the same. "If I'd lived," said he, "my humility Had given me deathless fame!" Sukker Uffro

- Ambrose Bierce
People of great position are servants times three, servants of their country, servants of fame, and servants of business.

- Bacon, Francis
Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth.

- Henry David Thoreau
The day will come when everyone will be famous for fifteen minutes.

- Warhol, Andy
Of all the possessions of this life fame is the noblest; when the body has sunk into the dust the great name still lives.

- Johann Von Schiller
Fame often makes a writer vain, but seldom makes him proud.

- Auden, W. H.
To have had fame, even very minor fame, and to have lost it, got older and maybe put on a little weight is a kind of living death.

- David Nicholls
Fame is a fickle food upon a shifting plate.

- Dickinson, Emily
Glory follows virtue as if it were its shadow.

- Cicero, Marcus T.
The fame you earn has a different taste from the fame that is forced upon you.

- Vanderbilt, Gloria
INK, n. A villainous compound of tannogallate of iron, gum-arabic and water, chiefly used to facilitate the infection of idiocy and promote intellectual crime. The properties of ink are peculiar and contradictory: it may be used to make reputations and unmake them; to blacken them and to make them white; but it is most generally and acceptably employed as a mortar to bind together the stones of an edifice of fame, and as a whitewash to conceal afterward the rascal quality of the material. There are men called journalists who have established ink baths which some persons pay money to get into, others to get out of. Not infrequently it occurs that a person who has paid to get in pays twice as much to get out.

- Ambrose Bierce
If a man loves the labor of his trade apart from any question of success or fame, the Gods have called him.

- Stevenson, Robert Louis
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
