Fame

He that pursues fame with just claims, trusts his happiness to the winds; but he that endeavors after it by false merit, has to fear, not only the violence of the storm, but the leaks of his vessel.
- Johnson, Samuel
Fame Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Fame

1.
We always hear about the haves and the have-nots. Why don't we hear about the doers and the do-nots.
Sewell, Thomas

Schopenhauer, Arthur

Once you become famous, there is nothing left to become but infamous.
Johnson, Don

A legend is an old man with a cane known for what he used to do. I'm still doing it.
Davis, Miles

William Shakespeare

Cato The Elder

16.
Time hath a wallet at his back, wherein he puts. Alms for oblivion, a great-sized monster of ingratitudes.
Shakespeare, William

17.
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

18.
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.
Byron, Lord

19.
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

Warhol, Andy

It is a mark of many famous people that they cannot part with their brightest hour.
Hellman, Lillian

23.
All the fame you should look for in life is to have lived it quietly.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

24.
What life half gives a man, posterity gives entirely.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

25.
Never suffer youth to be an excuse for inadequacy, nor age and fame to be an excuse for indolence.
Benjamin Haydon

26.
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

27.
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

28.
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.

29.
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

30.
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.
Monroe, Marilyn

31.
Fame is only good for one thing-they will cash your check in a small town.
Capote, Truman

32.
Fame has also this great drawback, that if we pursue it, we must direct our lives so as to please the fancy of men.

Being famous was extremely disappointing for me. When I became famous it was a complete drag and it is still a complete drag.
Morrison, Van

I want to be famous everywhere.
Pavarotti, Luciano

The majority of pop stars are complete idiots in every respect.
Sade, Marquis De

Rostand, Jean

41.
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.
