Fame

Each man has his appointed day: short and irreparable in the brief life of all, but to extend our fame by our deeds, this is the work of mankind.
- Virgil

Good fame is like fire; when you have kindled you may easily preserve it; but if you extinguish it, you will not easily kindle it again.
Bacon, Francis

16.
Acquaintance lessens fame.
Claudius

17.
If you're a misfit within a group of misfits, does that mean you're actually popular and normal?
Laura Preble

18.
When you can do the common things in life in a uncommon way, you will command the attention of the world.
Carver, George Washington

19.
Riches: A dream in the night. Fame: A gull floating on water.
Proverb, Chinese

Alda, Alan

35.
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

36.
The love of glory gives an immense stimulus.
Ovid

37.
Those who have known the famous are publicly debriefed of their memories, knowing as their own dusk falls that they will only be remembered for remembering someone else.
Bennett, Alan

38.
Because I have conducted my own operas and love sheep-dogs; because I generally dress in tweeds, and sometimes, at winter afternoon concerts, have even conducted in them; because I was a militant suffragette and seized a chance of beating time to The March of the Women from the window of my cell in Holloway Prison with a tooth-brush; because I have written books, spoken speeches, broadcast, and don't always make sure that my hat is on straight; for these and other equally pertinent reasons, in a certain sense I am well known.

Miller, Henry

43.
The professional celebrity, male and female, is the crowning result of the star system of a society that makes a fetish of competition.

Mills, C. Wright

44.
Let us not disdain glory too much; nothing is finer, except virtue. The height of happiness would be to unite both in this life.

Warhol, Andy

48.
What's fame? a fancy'd life in other's breath. A thing beyond us, even before our death.
Pope, Alexander

49.
The present condition of fame is merely fashion.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.

50.
The love of fame is the last weakness which even the wise resign.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
