Fame quotes
Fame
What is fame? The advantage of being known by people of whom you yourself know nothing, and for whom you care as little

- Stanislaus
Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth. I sat at a table where were rich food and wine in abundance, and obsequious attendance, but sincerity and truth were not; and I went away hungry from the inhospitable board.

- Henry David Thoreau
What is popularly called fame is nothing but an empty name and a legacy from paganism.

- Erasmus, Desiderius
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
Fame is the echo of actions, resounding them to the world, save that the echo repeats only the last art, but fame relates all, and often more than all.

- Fuller, Thomas
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
There are names written in her immortal scroll at which Fame blushes!

- Hazlitt, William
When you can do the common things in life in a uncommon way, you will command the attention of the world.

- Carver, George Washington

Some of the most famous books are the least worth reading. Their fame was due to their having done something that needed to be doing in their day. The work is done and the virtue of the book has expired.

- Morely, John
Now there is fame! Of all -- hunger, misery, the incomprehension by the public -- fame is by far the worst. It is the castigation of God by the artist. It is sad. It is true.

- Picasso, Pablo
I'm afraid of losing my obscurity. Genuineness only thrives in the dark. Like celery.

- Huxley, Aldous
Heartthrobs are a dime a dozen.

- Pitt, Brad
Man strives for glory, honor, fame, so that all the world may know his name. Amasses wealth by brain and hand. Becomes a power in the land. But when he nears the end of life and looks back over the years of strife. He finds that happiness depends on none of these but love of friends.

But those rare souls whose spirit gets magically into the hearts of men, leave behind them something more real and warmly personal than bodily presence, an ineffable and eternal thing. It is everlasting life touching us as something more than a vague, recondite concept. The sound of a great name dies like an echo; the splendor of fame fades into nothing; but the grace of a fine spirit pervades the places through which it has passed, like the haunting loveliness of mignonette.

- Thurber, James
To many fame comes too late.

- Camoens, Luis De
A celebrity is a person who works hard all of their life to become well known, and then wears dark glasses to avoid being recognized.

As an adolescent I aspired to lasting fame, I craved factual certainty, and I thirsted for a meaningful vision of human life - so I became a scientist. This is like becoming an archbishop so you can meet girls.

- M. Cartmill
MONUMENT, n. A structure intended to commemorate something which either needs no commemoration or cannot be commemorated. The bones of Agammemnon are a show, And ruined is his royal monument, but Agammemnon's fame suffers no diminution in consequence. The monument custom has its _reductiones ad absurdum_ in monuments "to the unknown dead" -- that is to say, monuments to perpetuate the memory of those who have left no memory.

- Ambrose Bierce
