Fame quotes

What's fame? a fancy'd life in other's breath. A thing beyond us, even before our death.

- Pope, Alexander

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

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

What life half gives a man, posterity gives entirely.

- Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

A star on a movie set is like a time bomb. That bomb has got to be defused so people can approach it without fear.

- Nicholson, Jack

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

It is better to be a has-been than a never-was.

- Parkinson, Cecil

Fame lost its appeal for me when I went into a public restroom and an autograph seeker handed me a pen and paper under the stall door.

- Marlo Thomas

Fame is no plant that grows on mortal soil.

- Milton, John

A life lived with integrity -- even if it lacks the trappings of fame and fortune is a shinning star in whose light others may follow in the years to come.

- Waitley, Denis

Some people obtain fame, others deserve it.

- Lessing, Doris

The drying up a single tear has more of honest fame, than shedding seas of gore.

- Byron, Lord

Glory follows virtue as if it were its shadow.

- Cicero, Marcus T.

Fame is like a shaved pig with a greased tail, and it is only after it has slipped through the hands of some thousands, that some fellow, by mere chance, holds on to it!

- Crockett, Davy

Popular applause veers with the wind.

- Bright, John

I had it all and blew it.

- Mantle, Mickey

Celebrity is never more admired than by the negligent.

- Shakespeare, William

People should realize we're jerks just like them.

- Bono, Edward De

Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth.

- Henry David Thoreau

How much fame, money, and power does a woman have to achieve on her own before you can punch her in the face?

- O.J. O'Rourke
