Best Quotes about Fame
We always hear about the haves and the have-nots. Why don't we hear about the doers and the do-nots.
Fame is something that must be won. Honor is something that must not be lost.
Once you become famous, there is nothing left to become but infamous.
The glory of great men should always be measured by the means they have used to acquire it.
Francois de La Rochefoucauld
Glory follows virtue as if it were its shadow.
Cicero, Marcus T.
The love of fame is the last weakness which even the wise resign.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
The love of glory gives an immense stimulus.
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.
A legend is an old man with a cane known for what he used to do. I'm still doing it.
Glory is like a circle in the water, Which never ceaseth to enlarge itself, Till by broad spreading it disperses to naught.
Even the best things are not equal to their fame.
Thoreau, Henry David
Riches: A dream in the night. Fame: A gull floating on water.
It is better to be a has-been than a never-was.
I won't be happy till I'm as famous as God.
I would much rather have men ask why I have no statue than why I have one.
Cato The Elder
Time hath a wallet at his back, wherein he puts. Alms for oblivion, a great-sized monster of ingratitudes.
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.
Smyth, Dame Ethel
My great comfort is, that the temporary celebrity I have wrung from the world has been in the very teeth of all opinions and prejudices. I have flattered no ruling powers; I have never concealed a single thought that tempted me.
Of present fame think little, and of future less; the praises that we receive after we are buried, like the flowers that are strewed over our grave, may be gratifying to the living, but they are nothing to the dead.
Colton, Charles Caleb
It is a wretched thing to live on the fame of others.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)
The day will come when everyone will be famous for fifteen minutes.
It is a mark of many famous people that they cannot part with their brightest hour.
All the fame you should look for in life is to have lived it quietly.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
What life half gives a man, posterity gives entirely.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Never suffer youth to be an excuse for inadequacy, nor age and fame to be an excuse for indolence.
I must say, I don't feel very qualified to be a pop star. I feel very awkward at times in the role.
Bono, Edward De
Wood burns because it has the proper stuff in it; and a man becomes famous because he has the proper stuff in him.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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.
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.
Fame will go by and, so long, I've had you, fame. If it goes by, I've always known it was fickle. So at least it's something I experienced, but that's not where I live.
Fame is only good for one thing-they will cash your check in a small town.
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)
What's fame? a fancy'd life in other's breath. A thing beyond us, even before our death.
Fame hides her head among the clouds.
Lives of great men all remind us we can make our lives sublime. And, departing, leave behind us footprints on the sands of time.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
Heartthrobs are a dime a dozen.
Being famous was extremely disappointing for me. When I became famous it was a complete drag and it is still a complete drag.
I want to be famous everywhere.
The majority of pop stars are complete idiots in every respect.
Sade, Marquis De
Renown? I've already got more of it than those I respect, and will never have as much as those for whom I feel contempt..
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.
May the countryside and the gliding valley streams content me. Lost to fame, let me love river and woodland.
Maro, Virgil Publius Vergilius
When you can do the common things in life in a uncommon way, you will command the attention of the world.
Carver, George Washington
Sometimes I wish I weren't famous.
The fame you earn has a different taste from the fame that is forced upon you.
Worldly fame is but a breath of wind that blows now this way, and now that, and changes name as it changes direction.
The love of the famous, like all strong passions, is quite abstract. Its intensity can be measured mathematically, and it is independent of persons.
Fame is the thirst of youth.
If fame is to come only after death, I am in no hurry for it.
Martial, Marcus Valerius
'Tis the white stag, Fame, we're a-hunting, bid the world's hounds come to horn!
