Fame quotes by Mary Wortley Montagu
#8. The use of knowledge in our sex (beside the amusement of solitude) is to moderate the passions and learn to be contented with a small expense, which are the certain effects of a studious life and, it may be, preferable even to that fame which men have engrossed to themselves and will not suffer us to share. #Quote by Mary Wortley Montagu

#10. Think about it. For the sake of fame, men will risk great dangers. They put themselves in the jaws of death more than for their children. For fame, they will spend their money like water and work their fingers to the bone. Have you not observed this in your own home? #Quote by Karen Essex
Fame quotes by Jerry Rice
#11. You know, I never looked down the road and said, 'Hey look, one day, the Hall of Fame.' It's always about playing each and every game 100 percent and I thank my teammates for getting me into the Hall because football is a team sport, not an individual sport. #Quote by Jerry Rice
Fame quotes by Jasleen Kaur Gumber
#12. How destiny plays games so thrilling,
both stay in the same building.
His books declared for the best seller of the year,
and she lives in the apartment to his but upstairs.
He is making fame, she has committed suicide severe.

The same window of the tall building instigated,
such varied colors.

In the woman-frustration and fear.
In the man- an inspiration so rare.
They share the same height, same sight,
of the same building.
From which,
one flew like kite and the other down right. #Quote by Jasleen Kaur Gumber

Fame quotes by Matt Haig
#20. The humans are an arrogant species, defined by violence and greed. They have taken their home planet, the only one they currently have access to, and placed it on the road to destruction. They have created a world of divisions and categories and have continually failed to see the similarities between themselves. They have developed technology at a rate too fast for human psychology to keep up with, and yet they still pursue advancement for advancement's sake, and for the pursuit of the money and fame they all crave so much. #Quote by Matt Haig
Fame quotes by Anonymous

Fame quotes by Tyga
#22. I'm a creative person, and I've got a lot of ideas. People probably thought that my mentality was quick fame because I made 'Rack City' and it blew up fast, but I have over 1,000 songs recorded. #Quote by Tyga
Fame quotes by Tom Petty
#23. It's very easy to be cynical about the hall of fame. But on the other hand, it's really a beautiful thing for someone like me. I dedicated my entire life to this music. #Quote by Tom Petty

#24. Marino was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2005, and his name always comes up when the conversation centers on the greatest quarterbacks of all time. But his greatness comes with an asterisk: He never won the Big Game. #Quote by Don Yaeger
Fame quotes by Robbie Williams
#25. It's success, not fame, that is quite addictive. I'm addicted to a lot of things and, as it happens, success is one of them. #Quote by Robbie Williams
Fame quotes by Barack Obama
#26. We are reminded that in the fleeting time we have on this Earth, what matters is not wealth or status or power or fame, but rather how well we have Loved and what small part we have played in making the lives of other people better. #Quote by Barack Obama
Fame quotes by Epicurus
#27. The wise man thinks of fame just enough to avoid being despised. #Quote by Epicurus
Fame quotes by Al-Ghazali
#28. Remember your contemporaries who have passed away and were your age. Remember the honors and fame they earned, the high posts they held, and the beautiful bodies they possessed. Today all of them are turned to dust. They have left orphans and widows behind them, their wealth is being wasted, and their houses turned into ruins.
No sign of them is left today, and they lie in dark holes underneath the earth.
Picture their faces before your mind's eye and ponder. #Quote by Al-Ghazali
Fame quotes by Jennifer Lopez
#29. It's like being in the middle of a tornado. It's like, whooooooosh, you know what I'm saying? It's like Dorothy-you wake up and find yourself in the land of Oz. #Quote by Jennifer Lopez
Fame quotes by Grace Metalious
#30. The public loves to create a hero ... Sometimes I think they do it for the sheer joy of knocking him down from the highest peak. Like a child who builds a house of blocks and then destroys it with one vicious kick. #Quote by Grace Metalious
Fame quotes by Mavis Staples
#31. I never sang for a Grammy, for money, for fame. That's my whole purpose for singing: for people, for the fans. #Quote by Mavis Staples
Fame quotes by Alfred North Whitehead
#32. Wisdom alone is true ambition's aim, wisdom is the source of virtue and of fame; obtained with labour, for mankind employed, and then, when most you share it, best enjoyed. #Quote by Alfred North Whitehead
Fame quotes by Robert Pattinson
#33. I can't see any advantage to fame. I'm happy with the life I have now. I've got the same two friends I've had since I was 12, and I can't see that changing. #Quote by Robert Pattinson
Fame quotes by Greg Laurie
#34. You will be tested as a leader ... You may be tested with success, fame, and fortune. #Quote by Greg Laurie
Fame quotes by Daniel R. Thorne
#35. In this age where people can become famous without doing anything, we are now encouraging a literary and publishing atmosphere where you must become famous before you can do anything. #Quote by Daniel R. Thorne
Fame quotes by George Stillman Hillard
#36. One might feel indignant at the injustice which deals out what is called fame with so unequal a hand, were it not for the reflection that men who are competent to add to the intellectual wealth of the world, and enlarge the domain of knowledge, have learned to take popular applause at its true value, and to find in the faithful discharge of honorable duty a satisfaction which is its own reward. #Quote by George Stillman Hillard
Fame quotes by Rickey Henderson
#37. People always ask me why I still want to play, but I want to know why no one will give me an opportunity. It's like they put a stamp on me: 'Hall of Fame. You're done. That's it.' #Quote by Rickey Henderson
Fame quotes by Gerard Way

Fame quotes by Samora Machel

Fame quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#40. Work unto death! I am with you, and when I am gone, my spirit will work with you. This life comes and goes; wealth, fame, enjoyments are only of a few days. It is better, far better to die on the field of duty, preaching the truth, than to die like a worldly worm. Advance! #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Fame quotes by Charles Churchill
#41. To copy beauty forfeits all pretense to fame; to copy faults is want of sense. #Quote by Charles Churchill
Fame quotes by Robert Hilburn
#42. At times, Singer Johnny Cash rubbed dirt from the earth under his fingernails in order to avoid any arrogance which might stem from his fame, by reminding himself of his roots and origins. #Quote by Robert Hilburn
Fame quotes by William Wordsworth
#43. ...The happy Warrior... 'tis, finally, the man, who, lifted high, conspicuous object in a nation's eye, or left unthought-of in obscurity,- who, with a toward or untoward lot, prosperous or adverse, to his wish or not- plays, in the many games of life, that one where what he most doth value must be won: whom neither shape or danger can dismay, nor thought of tender happiness betray; who, not content that former worth stand fast, looks forward, persevering to the last, from well to better, daily self-surpast: who, whether praise of him must walk the earth for ever, and to noble deeds give birth, or he must fall, to sleep without his fame, and leave a dead unprofitable name- finds comfort in himself and in his cause; and, while the mortal mist is gathering, draws his breath in confidence of Heaven's applause: this is the happy Warrior; this is he that every man in arms should wish to be. #Quote by William Wordsworth
Fame quotes by Bert Blyleven
#44. It enrages me to see only certain players singled out for the Hall of Fame because they were born with a God-given specialty. When I take my kids to the Baseball Hall of Fame, I want them to experience the full array of talents that make the game what it is today, not just the larger-than-life freaks of nature. I want them to know that you don't have to be the biggest or the strongest to reach your goals, and that hard work and perseverance are also rewarded. #Quote by Bert Blyleven
Fame quotes by Tom Felton
#45. One thing that people keep on saying to me is that the wealth and the fame must have made up for missing out on my childhood. But the idea of money - putting a price on your childhood - is ridiculous. You will never get those years back and you can't put a price on them. #Quote by Tom Felton
Fame quotes by Jeremy Collier
#46. Those who despise fame seldom deserve it. We are apt to undervalue the purchase we cannot reach, to conceal our poverty the better. It is a spark which kindles upon the best fuel, and burns brightest in the bravest breast. #Quote by Jeremy Collier
Fame quotes by Pericles
#47. She is best who is least spoken of among men, whether for good or evil. #Quote by Pericles
Fame quotes by Andre Gide
#48. Enduring fame is promised only to those writers who can offer to successive generations a substance constantly renewed; for every generation arrives upon the scene with its own particular hunger. #Quote by Andre Gide
Fame quotes by Josh Waitzkin
#49. This might sound like a dream for a seventeen-year-old boy, and I won't deny enjoying the attention, but professionally it was a nightmare. My game began to unravel. I caught myself thinking about how I looked thinking instead of losing myself in thought. The Grandmasters, my elders, were ignored and scowled at me. Some of them treated me like a pariah. I had won eight national championships and had more fans, public support and recognition than I could dream of, but none of this was helping my search for excellence, let alone for happiness. At a young age I came to know that there is something profoundly hollow about the nature of fame. I had spent my life devoted to artistic growth and was used to the sweaty-palmed sense of contentment one gets after many hours of intense reflection. This peaceful feeling had nothing to do with external adulation, and I yearned for a return to that innocent, fertile time. I missed just being a student of the game, #Quote by Josh Waitzkin
Fame quotes by Lloyd Banks
#50. I take things like honor and loyalty seriously. It's more important to me than any materialistic thing or any fame I could have. #Quote by Lloyd Banks
Fame quotes by Florence King
#51. We worship education but hate learning. We worship success but hate the successful. We worship fame but hate the famous. #Quote by Florence King
Fame quotes by Patrul Rinpoche
#52. What makes an action positive or negative? Not how it looks, not whether it is big or small, but it is the positive or negative motivation that is behind it.

No matter how many teachings that you have heard, to be motivated by ordinary concerns, such as a desire for greatness, fame or whatever, is not the way of the true Dharma. #Quote by Patrul Rinpoche
Fame quotes by Kanye West
#53. And wouldn't change by the change, or the game, or the fame, when he came, in the game, he made his own name #Quote by Kanye West
Fame quotes by Flea
#54. Just so people know, the Silverlake Conservatory of Music is not at all about celebrity or fame or being a star. It's an academic music school. #Quote by Flea
Fame quotes by Joseph Conrad
#55. We wander in our thousands over the
face of the earth, the illustrious and the obscure, earning beyond the
seas our fame, our money, or only a crust of bread; but it seems to me
that for each of us going home must be like going to render an account.
We return to face our superiors, our kindred, our friends
those whom we
obey, and those whom we love; but even they who have neither, the most
free, lonely, irresponsible and bereft of ties,
even those for whom
home holds no dear face, no familiar voice,
even they have to meet the
spirit that dwells within the land, under its sky, in its air, in its
valleys, and on its rises, in its fields, in its waters and its trees
mute friend, judge, and inspirer. #Quote by Joseph Conrad
Fame quotes by Nhat Hanh
#56. We must look deeply into the nature of our volition to see whether it is pushing us in the direction of liberation from suffering and toward peace and compassion, or in the direction of affliction and misery. What is it that we really want deep in our heart? Is it money, fame, power? Or is it finding inner peace, being able to live life fully and enjoy the present moment? #Quote by Nhat Hanh
Fame quotes by Bono
#57. David was "a star, the Elvis of the Bible." An unusually for such a rockstar with his lust for power, lust for women, lust for life, he had humility of one who knew his gift work harder than he ever would. #Quote by Bono
Fame quotes by Denise Duhamel
#58. I just didn't get it -
even with the teacher holding an orange (the earth) in one hand
and a lemon (the moon) in the other,
her favorite student (the sun) standing behind her with a flashlight.
I just couldn't grasp it -
this whole citrus universe, these bumpy planets revolving so slowly
no one could even see themselves moving.
I used to think if I could only concentrate hard enough
I could be the one person to feel what no one else could,
sense a small tug from the ground, a sky shift, the earth changing gears.
Even though I was only one mini-speck on a speck,
even though I was merely a pinprick in one goosebump on the orange,
I was sure then I was the most specially perceptive, perceptively sensitive.
I was sure then my mother was the only mother to snap,
"The world doesn't revolve around you!"
The earth was fragile and mostly water,
just the way the orange was mostly water if you peeled it,
just the way I was mostly water if you peeled me.
Looking back on that third grade science demonstration,
I can understand why some people gave up on fame or religion or cures -
especially people who have an understanding
of the excruciating crawl of the world,
who have a well-developed sense of spatial reasoning
and the tininess that it is to be one of us.
But not me - even now I wouldn't mind being god, the force
who spins the planets the way I spin a globe, #Quote by Denise Duhamel
Fame quotes by Chinua Achebe
#59. If ever a man deserved his success, that man was Okonkwo. At an early age he had achieved fame as the greatest wrestler in all the land. That was not luck. At the most one could say that his chi or personal god was good. But the Ibo people have a proverb that when a man say yes his chi says yes also. Okonkwo said yes very strongly; so his chi agreed. And not only his chi but his clan too, because it judged a man by the work of his hands. #Quote by Chinua Achebe
Fame quotes by Peter Grey
#60. There is no sentimentality here. We need dirt under our nails and smoke stiffening our hair. We need salt drying on our chests, and bramble snagged calves. We must dedicate ourselves to forty days in the wilderness rather than our five minutes of fame. Magic must become more savage if it is to have any meaning in the world, any power. Myths are not to be draped about poetry, they come from the very substance of the earth, this is the mask we must wear. Be fierce from this understanding taking root. #Quote by Peter Grey
Fame quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#61. I seek to sensitize and clarify the essential elements of my soul. I will leave striving for the flags of fame and fortune behind and go where the soul beckons without fearing the decisive outcome. I will travel in a world without boundaries and embrace danger and awe. I will stand as a witness to comedy, beauty, and tragedy and apply the principles of artistic and ascetic forms of awareness to overcome the inherent frustration of enduring a fundamentally painful human existence. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Fame quotes by Mitch Albom
#62. I earned a mater's degree in journalism and took the first job offered, as a sports writer. Instead of chasing my own fame, I wrote about famous athletes chasing theirs. #Quote by Mitch Albom
Fame quotes by Charles Bukowski
#63. When a writer is swayed with his fame and his fortune, you can float him down the river with the turds. #Quote by Charles Bukowski
Fame quotes by Homer
#64. There is no greater fame for a man than that which he wins with his footwork or the skill of his hands. #Quote by Homer
Fame quotes by William Shakespeare
#65. In thee thy mother dies, our household's name, My death's revenge, thy youth, and England's fame. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Fame quotes by Ilchi Lee
#66. You need only one thing in the world. It is not money. It is not fame. It is not even food. All you need in the world is hope. As long as you have that, you have everything. This is your birthright that you should never lose. If you keep hope, all your other necessities will come soon enough. #Quote by Ilchi Lee
Fame quotes by Sharon Stone
#67. There are a lot of good things about being famous but there are a few not so good things too. #Quote by Sharon Stone
Fame quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#68. Paper is cheap, and authors need not now erase one book before they write another. Instead of cultivating the earth for wheat andpotatoes, they cultivate literature, and fill a place in the Republic of Letters. Or they would fain write for fame merely, as others actually raise crops of grain to be distilled into brandy. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Fame quotes by Chris Squire
#69. I think partly the problem with Yes - and I've had this discussion with people from the Hall of Fame in the past - is that it's going to be difficult to decide how many of the members of Yes you're gonna put in it and how many you're not because of the extensive membership of the band through the years. #Quote by Chris Squire
Fame quotes by Randeep Hooda
#70. I'm going to be acting all my life. But, while doing that, I will try to avoid the trappings of fame. #Quote by Randeep Hooda
Fame quotes by Fernando Pessoa
#71. Everything is absurd.1 man spends his life earning money which he then saves even though he has no children 2 leave it 2. another puts all his efforts into becoming famous so that he'll b remembered once dead, yet he doesn't believe in a survival of the soul that would give him knowledge of that fame. yet another wears himself out looking 4 things he doesn't even like. #Quote by Fernando Pessoa
Fame quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#72. [A] finished tale may give a man immortality in the light and literary sense; but an unfinished tale suggests another immortality, more essential and more strange. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Fame quotes by John Fahey
#73. As for fame, it can go to your head and you can become full of yourself. #Quote by John Fahey
Fame quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#74. I lately met with an old volume from a London bookshop, containing the Greek Minor Poets, and it was a pleasure to read once moreonly the words Orpheus, Linus, Musaeus,
those faint poetic sounds and echoes of a name, dying away on the ears of us modern men; and those hardly more substantial sounds, Mimnermus, Ibycus, Alcaeus, Stesichorus, Menander. They lived not in vain. We can converse with these bodiless fames without reserve or personality. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Fame quotes by Henrietta Newton Martin
#75. Wealth earned may disappear, beauty will fade, honor may recede and fame diminish; all that shall remain, is a soul that is humane within that would leave a trail in the thoughts of your loved ones;And even if that fails,your God in heaven above will never fail you or fail to rejoice in a life you've managed to live worthy of His praise. #Quote by Henrietta Newton Martin
Fame quotes by Criss Jami
#76. It's much easier on the emotions when one sees life as an experiment rather than a struggle for popularity. #Quote by Criss Jami

Fame quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#78. A person must escape artificial constraints and unfold the myth of their own being. There is only one path for a thinking person in life, and that is to assume the role of a compassionate observer. I can only achieve personal freedom – liberty of the mind, body, and soul – by stop worrying about how other people perceive me and no longer judge myself in terms of fame and fortune. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Fame quotes by Marilyn Monroe
#79. Fame has a special burden, which I might as well state here and now. I don't mind being burdened with being glamorous and sexual. But what goes with it can be a burden #Quote by Marilyn Monroe
Fame quotes by Cara Delevingne
#80. Fame, do I like it? No. It has bought a lot for me in my career, but there are a lot of downsides to it. You give up your privacy. I did it to myself but not to my family and friends. You don't ask for it. You just have to live with it. #Quote by Cara Delevingne
Fame quotes by Jeffrey Thomas
#81. A screenplay adaptation of my 'Punktown' novel 'Health Agent' has been making the rounds. The screenplay was written by my friend, singer/songwriter Walter Egan of 'Magnet & Steel' fame! #Quote by Jeffrey Thomas
Fame quotes by Paul McCartney
#82. I've got a few guitars that I like. The trouble with fame and riches is that you have more than one guitar. #Quote by Paul McCartney
Fame quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#83. General propositions – universal laws governing human thinking and human existence – leave room for many individualistic permutations. How shall I survive the specter of tomorrow, what is my life plan, and how will I come to terms with the finite lives of all humankind? How do I heal seeping internal wounds that lacerations weaken personal resolve? A person whom avoids seeking fame and fortune and engages in contemplative thought will enjoy a heightened state of existence. My survival hinges upon shedding the shackles of modern time's economic rigors; seeking penance through heartfelt contrition; accepting a vision quest devoid of wanting; rejoicing in my budding curiosity; loving nature; giving breath to living without fear and apprehension; and eliminating any form of want or angst from my cerebral being. Unshackling myself from the burdens of the past – guilt, remorse, anger, and petty resentments – is part of the healing process. The other part of a rehabilitation prescription is declaring free rein to live in the present one moment at a time. After all, humankind is the only member of the animal kingdom that walks this earth with the foreknowledge of its ultimate demise, but why would any person allow information pertaining to our personal fate ruin a perfectly good walk in nature's woodlands with our fellow creatures? #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Fame quotes by Andrew Garfield
#84. Obviously there's something very seductive about movies, which can be attractive in a bad way if you're doing them for the wrong reasons - for money, or for fame. #Quote by Andrew Garfield
Fame quotes by Kirsten Vangsness
#85. I didn't want that 15 minutes of fame moment like, 'Oh, she said she was gay.' #Quote by Kirsten Vangsness
Fame quotes by Jewel
#86. Being idolized and being torn down felt oddly similar. They both made me feel alone.
Friendship and trust should be earned, and when you're famous, people seem to want to give them to you whether you've earned them or not, and it felt dishonest to me. Fame was not real. It was all a projection - fame made me a blank canvas that people projected their love, lust, troubles, self-worth, and desire upon.
Fame and power do not change us, they amplify us. #Quote by Jewel
Fame quotes by Virchand Gandhi
#87. The greatest skeptic must now admit that the land and sea-borne trade of India had given her a world-wide fame not only for her gold, spices and silk, but for her religions and philosophies also. #Quote by Virchand Gandhi

Fame quotes by Ellen DeGeneres
#89. I think gender plays a part in most things, but I don't know how it would be different because I've never been a man. And my fame is different from Nicole Kidman's or Sharon Stone's. I think everybody's fame is different. #Quote by Ellen DeGeneres
Fame quotes by Florence King
#90. Americans respect talent only insofar as it leads to fame, and we reserve our most fervent admiration for famous people who destroy their lives as well as their talent. The fatal flaws of Elvis, Judy, and Marilyn register much higher on our national applause meter than their living achievements. In Amerca, talent is merely a tool for becoming famous in life so you can become more famous in death - where all are equal. #Quote by Florence King
Fame quotes by Percy Bysshe Shelley
#91. Homer's Hymn to Castor and Pollux

Published by Mrs. Shelley, "Poetical Works", 1839, 2nd edition; dated 1818.

Ye wild-eyed Muses, sing the Twins of Jove,
Whom the fair-ankled Leda, mixed in love
With mighty Saturn's Heaven-obscuring Child,
On Taygetus, that lofty mountain wild,
Brought forth in joy: mild Pollux, void of blame,
And steed-subduing Castor, heirs of fame.
These are the Powers who earth-born mortals save
And ships, whose flight is swift along the wave.
When wintry tempests o'er the savage sea
Are raging, and the sailors tremblingly
Call on the Twins of Jove with prayer and vow,
Gathered in fear upon the lofty prow,
And sacrifice with snow-white lambs, - the wind
And the huge billow bursting close behind,
Even then beneath the weltering waters bear
The staggering ship - they suddenly appear,
On yellow wings rushing athwart the sky,
And lull the blasts in mute tranquillity,
And strew the waves on the white Ocean's bed,
Fair omen of the voyage; from toil and dread
The sailors rest, rejoicing in the sight,
And plough the quiet sea in safe delight. #Quote by Percy Bysshe Shelley
Fame quotes by Big Bank Hank
#92. Fame can take a toll on your personal life. Half of us were in short-lived marriages or not married at all. When you are doing something you love so much that you once did for free, and then someone pays you to do it, it's like a blessing. But you have to be prepared for it. #Quote by Big Bank Hank
Fame quotes by Billy Childish
#93. When I was better known than her, she put my name in that tent. I was asked to do Celebrity Big Brother, but why should I? We live in an age where fame is not related to what you do. #Quote by Billy Childish
Fame quotes by Marlo Thomas
#94. 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. #Quote by Marlo Thomas
Fame quotes by Og Mandino
#95. Never will I pray for the material things of the world. I am not calling to a servant to bring me food. I am not ordering an innkeeper to provide me with room. Never will I seek delivery of gold, love, good health, petty victories, fame, success, or happiness. Only for guidance will I pray, that I may be shown the way to acquire these things, and my prayer will always be answered. #Quote by Og Mandino
Fame quotes by Nikki Sixx
#96. I am the outcast come home to roost and the eggs of tomorrow are incubating in my fame. You hate me, you love me, you made me, and now I am in you. I am like that disease brewing in your loins and I think you like it ... #Quote by Nikki Sixx
Fame quotes by Psyche Roxas-Mendoza
#97. You can change your life or not change it.
It really doesn't matter in the end.
Life as humans live it is too fleeting,
too incidental, too miniscule
for the universe to keep forever.
So just do good to others; be good, all
because it makes you happy,
happy beyond fame, power, and
eternity. #Quote by Psyche Roxas-Mendoza
Fame quotes by John Green
#98. Because personally I think mattering is a piss-poor idea. I just want to fly under the radar, because when you start to make yourself into a big deal, that's when you get shot down. The bigger a deal you are, the worse your life is. #Quote by John Green
Fame quotes by Peter Lefcourt
#99. Why should his sexual preference preclude his being voted into Hall of Fame?"
"You don't know much about baseball, do you, doc? #Quote by Peter Lefcourt
Fame quotes by Marisha Pessl
#100. Millions of people walked through their lives numb, dying to feel something, to feel alive. To be chosen by Cordova for a film was an opportunity for just that, not simply for fame and fortune, but to leave their old selves behind like discarded clothes. #Quote by Marisha Pessl
Fame quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#101. It is even more unpleasant to hate someone who does not even know that you exist. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Fame quotes by Samuel Johnson
#102. The hostility perpetually exercised between one man and another, is caused by the desire of many for that which only few can possess. Every man would be rich, powerful, and famous; yet fame, power, and riches, are only the names of relative conditions, which imply the obscurity, dependence, and poverty of greater numbers. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Fame quotes by Will Oldham
#103. People are looking for fame or a focus, and I can't provide that. #Quote by Will Oldham
Fame quotes by Fidelis O. Mkparu
#104. Our relationship was convoluted and was mired in cross-cultural vicissitude.Our promising friendship faltered after she became a supermodel.What prejudice could not destroy was extinguished by fame and a lucrative modeling contract. #Quote by Fidelis O. Mkparu
Fame quotes by Charles Caleb Colton
#105. 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. #Quote by Charles Caleb Colton
Fame quotes by Carly Rae Jepsen
#106. The quick lesson that I learned is that none of the fame part is really real. #Quote by Carly Rae Jepsen
Fame quotes by Karl Lagerfeld
#107. You cannot fight against it. There's a price you have to pay for fame, and people who don't want to pay that price can get in trouble. I accepted the idea of celebrity because of a French expression: 'You cannot have the butter and the money for the butter.' #Quote by Karl Lagerfeld
Fame quotes by Alanis Morissette
#108. I thought the more famous I became, the more friendships I would have, but the opposite was true. #Quote by Alanis Morissette
Fame quotes by Soren Kierkegaard
#109. In the end, therefore, money will be the one thing people will desire, which is moreover only representative, an abstraction. Nowadays a young man hardly envies anyone his gifts, his art, the love of a beautiful girl, or his fame; he only envies him his money. Give me money, he will say, and I am saved ... He would die with nothing to reproach himself with, and under the impression that if only he had had the money he might really have lived and might even have achieved something great. #Quote by Soren Kierkegaard
Fame quotes by Red Faber
#110. It's a great honor to me to be named to the Hall of Fame. It's very hard for me to even imagine that I would ever be elected to it. #Quote by Red Faber
Fame quotes by Sallust
#111. Fame is the shadow of passion standing in the light #Quote by Sallust
Fame quotes by Dolph Lundgren
#112. Hollywood is great for entertaining people, it's a wonderful business but it's make-believe, you must remember that. That's one of the most important things to remember and the distinction in your own life, otherwise people get lost in their own fame, and it makes them unhappy. #Quote by Dolph Lundgren
Fame quotes by Nicole Richie
#113. I think fame is harder when people have something to hide, but I'm very comfortable, and have nothing to hide. #Quote by Nicole Richie
Fame quotes by Paul Newman
#114. You can't really appreciate anonymity until you've lost it. People say that's sour grapes, but it really isn't To be able to walk down the street without people paying attention to you is a real blessing and you lose it when you become an actor. #Quote by Paul Newman
Fame quotes by Monica Leonelle
#115. For those of you unfamiliar with the term "growth hacking," growth hacking focuses exclusively on strategies and tactics (typically in digital marketing) that help grow a business or product. The concept was first coined by Sean Ellis of Dropbox fame back in 2010 in a blog post. It has since changed the face of startup marketing, with Techcrunch guest writer Aaron Ginn explaining that a growth hacker has a "mindset of data, creativity, and curiosity. #Quote by Monica Leonelle
Fame quotes by Drew Barrymore
#116. I'm not after fame and success and fortune and power. It's mostly that I want to have a good job and have good friends; that's the good stuff in life. #Quote by Drew Barrymore
Fame quotes by Neil Strauss
#117. The right lifestyle is something that is worn, not discussed. Money, fame, and looks, though helpful, are not required. It is, rather, something that screams: Ladies, abandon your boring, mundane, unfulfilled lives and step into my exciting world, full of interesting people, new experiences, good times, easy living, and dreams fulfilled. #Quote by Neil Strauss
Fame quotes by David Foster Wallace
#118. LaMont, the truth is that the world is incredibly, incredibly, unbelievably old. You suffer with the stunted desire caused by one of its oldest lies. Do not believe the photographs. Fame is not the exit from any cage. #Quote by David Foster Wallace
Fame quotes by Debbie Allen
#119. There was a time when fame meant that you were either someone who is really gifted in your field or you were making an impact or you are famous because you were a really horrible person, you know? But now, you can become famous by eating a frog. It's just not the same thing. #Quote by Debbie Allen
Fame quotes by Jean Cocteau
#120. The reward of art is not fame or success but intoxication: that is why so many bad artists are unable to give it up. #Quote by Jean Cocteau
Fame quotes by Rose George
#121. I find Maersk fascinating. It is the Coca-Cola of freight with none of the fame. Its parent company, A. P. Moller-Maersk, is Denmark's largest company, its sales equal to 20 percent of Denmark's GDP; its ships use more oil than the entire nation. #Quote by Rose George
Fame quotes by Marie Dressler
#122. There are very few persons who would think of inquiring into the private life of the newspaper dealer at the corner, or the druggist, or the doctor, or even a Mah Jong partner, but the moment one belongs to the theatrical profession, the public usually feels cheated unless it knows one's inmost thoughts of love. #Quote by Marie Dressler
Fame quotes by James Aura
#123. She smiled. "I love that old song about Muhlenberg County; John Denver did it, I think."
"Him and a dozen others. But John Prine wrote and sang the original. It's one of our claims to fame."
She quietly began to sing under her breath, "Daddy…won't you take me back to Muhlenberg County… #Quote by James Aura
Fame quotes by Geert Groote
#124. The farther a man knows himself to be free from perfection, the nearer he is to it. #Quote by Geert Groote
Fame quotes by Rondal Partridge
#125. Photography is a life of learning. That's all I want from photography. I don't want the money. I don't need the fame. I don't need the admiration. I'd like all of those things, but I don't need them. Because what I get from photographing is learning. I have spent my life learning by looking through a lens. #Quote by Rondal Partridge
Fame quotes by Phil Jackson
#126. Pau is one of the best big men in the game. I mean, Pau Gasol is going to be in the Hall of Fame. #Quote by Phil Jackson
Fame quotes by Andrew Hodges
#127. [quoting British philosopher Edward Carpenter] I used to go and sit on the beach at Brighton and dream, and now I sit on the shore of human life and dream practically the same dreams. I remember about that time that I mention - or it may have been a trifle later - coming to the distinct conclusion that there were only two things really worth living for - the glory and beauty of Nature, and the glory and beauty of human love and friendship. And to-day I still feel the same. What else indeed is there? All the nonsense about riches, fame, distinction, ease, luxury and so forth - how little does it amount to! These things are so obviously second-hand affairs, useful only and in so far as they may lead to the first two, and short of their doing that liable to become odious and harmful. To become united and in line with the beauty and vitality of Nature (but, Lord help us! we are far enough off from that at present), and to become united with those we love - what other ultimate object in life is there? Surely all these other things, these games and examinations, these churches and chapels, these district councils and money markets, these top-hats and telephones and even the general necessity of earning one's living - if they are not ultimately for that, what are they for? #Quote by Andrew Hodges
Fame quotes by Nancy Sinatra
#128. I have never been accepted. I'll never make the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. They're never going to let me in. #Quote by Nancy Sinatra
Fame quotes by Courtney Milan
#129. Three quarters of respectable England hates you."
"Half," Sebastian replied with a smile. "It's really only half. Judging by my correspondence, it may be as little as forty-eight percent. And of those, only a small number want to cause me bodily harm. The rest just wish to have me gagged or thrown in prison. #Quote by Courtney Milan
Fame quotes by Tacitus
#130. Modest fame is not to be despised by the highest characters.
[Lat., Modestiae fama neque summis mortalibus spernenda est.] #Quote by Tacitus
Fame quotes by Terry O'Quinn
#131. Really, I think of fame as distracting; it's something you have to get around. #Quote by Terry O'Quinn
Fame quotes by Jeremy Luke
#132. The definition of success to me is not necessarily a price tag, not fame, but having a good life, and being able to say I did the right thing at the end of the day. #Quote by Jeremy Luke
Fame quotes by Kyos Magupe
#133. Popularity, Fame or money does not mean you are a good person, but your heart, behavior, characteristics and action do. #Quote by Kyos Magupe
Fame quotes by Emily Dickinson
#134. Fame is a bee.
It has a song -
It has a sting -
Ah, too, it has a wing. #Quote by Emily Dickinson
Fame quotes by Mark Manson
#135. While most people whittle their days chasing another buck, or a little bit more fame and attention, or a little bit more assurance that they're right or loved, death confronts all of us with a far more painful and important question: What is your legacy? How will the world be different and better when you're gone? What mark will you have made? What influence will you have caused? They say that a butterfly flapping its wings in Africa can cause a hurricane in Florida; well, what hurricanes will you leave in your wake? #Quote by Mark Manson
Fame quotes by Alexander Hanson
#136. I'm a career actor. And I question this constant reliance on TV fame and celebrity. #Quote by Alexander Hanson
Fame quotes by O. Henry
#137. True adventurers have never been plentiful. They who are set down in print as such have been mostly business men with newly invented methods. They have been out after the things they wanted - golden fleeces, holy grails, lady loves, treasures, crowns, and fame. The true adventurer goes forth aimless and uncalculating to meet and greet unknown fate. A fine example was the Prodigal Sob - when he started back home. #Quote by O. Henry
Fame quotes by Cate Blanchett
#138. I live my life parallel with my work, and they are both equally important. I'm always amazed how much people talk about celebrity and fame. I don't understand the attraction. #Quote by Cate Blanchett
Fame quotes by Harold Holzer
#139. Robert T. Lincoln, the president's eldest son, who won fame as the "Prince of Rails" during the secession winter, was the only one of his children to live to maturity. He became U.S. secretary of war, minister to Great Britain, and president of the Pullman Company following brief service on General Grant's staff at the end of the Civil War. Though frequently mentioned as a Republican candidate for president, Robert shunned electoral politics. He later brought his mother to trial in a successful effort to have her committed for insanity. Robert died an extremely wealthy man at age eighty-four in 1926. #Quote by Harold Holzer
Fame quotes by Tyler Perry
#140. As far as the illusion of the fame, yes, I can definitely appreciate it. #Quote by Tyler Perry
Fame quotes by Dolly Parton
#141. People don't realize that, you know, we have - "we" meaning people in show business have the same problems as everybody else. Money don't change that. Fame don't change that. Sometimes that brings on more problems. You know, it's just a - different kind of problems. As they say, money ain't everything. #Quote by Dolly Parton
Fame quotes by William Blake
#142. Oh! why was I born with a different face? why was I not born like the rest of my race? when
I look,each one starts! when I speak, I offend; then Im silent & passive & lose every friend. Then
my verse I dishonour, my pictures despise, my person degrade & my temper chastise; and the pen is my terror, the pencil my shame; all my talents I bury, and dead is my fame. Im either too low or too highly prized; when elate I m envy'd, when meek Im despis'd #Quote by William Blake
Fame quotes by Red Auerbach
#143. I have two college degrees, four honorary doctorate degrees, and am in three Halls of fame, and the only thing I know how to do is teach tall people how to put a ball in the hole. #Quote by Red Auerbach
Fame quotes by J.K. Rowling
#144. It's not all book signings and publicity photos, you know. You want fame, you have to be prepared for a long hard slog. #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Fame quotes by Marcus Aurelius
#145. Small too even the longest fame thereafter, which is itself subject to a succession of little men who quickly die, and have no knowledge of themselves, let alone of those long dead. #Quote by Marcus Aurelius
Fame quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#146. If your spouse gets sick, who would you visit - your non-doctor neighbor or an actual doctor! Any sane person would visit a doctor over a non-doctor neighbor, even if that neighbor happens to be a celebrity, because it is common knowledge that fame or charisma is not equivalent to medical expertise, yet when it comes to choosing a doctor to treat the sickness of a nation, the masses most proudly elect any charismatic chimpanzee over a humble, wise and conscientious leader. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Fame quotes by Jimmy Cliff
#147. People in the Hall of Fame tend to clap their hands and say, 'OK, I've done it all,' but for me, it was a new beginning. #Quote by Jimmy Cliff
Fame quotes by Orson Scott Card
#148. What a waste of time to be posthumously famous. #Quote by Orson Scott Card
Fame quotes by James E. Faust
#149. Self-mastery is a challenge for every individual. Only we can control our appetites and passions. Self-mastery cannot be bought by money or fame. It is the ultimate test of our character. It requires climbing out of the deep valleys of our lives and scaling our own Mount Everests. #Quote by James E. Faust
Fame quotes by Alexander Pope
#150. Then most our trouble still when most admired,
And still the more we give, the more required;
Whose fame with pains we guard, but lose with ease,
Sure some to vex, but never all to please. #Quote by Alexander Pope
Fame quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#151. Back then: to be regarded as well-known, one had to be great. Today: to be regarded as great, one has to be well-known. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Fame quotes by Simon Fuller
#152. Fame is a modern phenomenon caused by the explosion of media, where there's a zillion digital channels and snappers everywhere. It's so attainable, so people can have their Warhol 15 minutes of fame, and some are so aggressive. #Quote by Simon Fuller
Fame quotes by Leopold Throckmorton
#153. Author:
A common gadabout who freely wanders over the landscape with wanton disregard. His days are spent picking up all the stray free words he can handle and squirreling them away for later use.
Subsequently, (days, months or years later) working by candlelight and hidden away in his dank, musty secluded lair, the rogue simply rearranges the collected words on yellowed bond with a sharpened quill ink pen fashioned from the tail feather of a bald-headed vulture.
Once finished, the dastardly cur audaciously attempts to sell those assembled pages for fleeting fame and profit. #Quote by Leopold Throckmorton
Fame quotes by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
#154. A man's heart must be very frivolous if the possession of fame rewards the labor to attain it. For the worst of reputation is that it is not palpable or present - we do not feel or see or taste it. #Quote by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
Fame quotes by John Green
#155. Does John Green have a Hollywood Star?
A John Green does but he is not me.
He was a composer who won five Academy Awards for scoring such movies as An American in Paris and West Side Story.
Although today he is mostly forgotten which is a nice reminder that no matter what you do the tides of time will wash away your sandcastles. So there's no sense in reaching for some
foolhardy notion of immortality when there is
real work to be done
with real people,
right now. #Quote by John Green
Fame quotes by Candace Bushnell
#156. Why shouldn't I? I demand silently. Why shouldn't I become a famous writer? Like Norman Mailer. Or Philip Roth. And F. Scott Fitzgerald and Hemmingway and all those other men. Why can't I be like them? I mean, what is the point of becoming a writer if no one reads what you've written?
Damn Viktor Greene and The New School. Why do I have to keep proving myself all of the time? Why can't I be like L'il, with everyone praising and encouraging me? Or Rainbow, with her sense of entitlement. I bet Viktor Greene never asked Rainbow why she wanted to be a writer.
Or what if-I wince-Viktor Greene is right? I'm not a writer after all. #Quote by Candace Bushnell
Fame quotes by Emma Watson
#157. My friends are all really nice about my fame, they're just curious really, they ask lots of questions. #Quote by Emma Watson
Fame quotes by Morrissey
#158. I want fame now, not after I'm dead. #Quote by Morrissey
Fame quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#159. Our misery comes, not from work, but by our getting attached to something. Take for instance, money: money is a great thing to have, earn it, says Krishna; struggle hard to get money, but don't get attached to it. So with children, with wife, husband, relatives, fame, everything; you have no need to shun them, only don't get attached. There is only one attachment and that belongs to the Lord, and to none other. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Fame quotes by Barack Obama
#160. The fact that my 15 minutes of fame has extended a little longer than 15 minutes is somewhat surprising to me and completely baffling to my wife. #Quote by Barack Obama
Fame quotes by Jared Leto
#161. You know you're really famous when there's rumors about you being gay. #Quote by Jared Leto
Fame quotes by Robert Blair
#162. The best-concerted schemes men lay for fame, Die fast away: only themselves die faster. The far-fam'd sculptor, and the laurell'd bard, Those bold insurancers of deathless fame, Supply their little feeble aids in vain. #Quote by Robert Blair
Fame quotes by Richard Dent
#163. I'm very happyWhen you start a career you never think about the Hall of Fame ... watching a guy like Walter Payton, he would say 'Don't do what I say, do what I do.' If you can do your thing the way he does his, the possibility is you will get in the Hall of Fame. #Quote by Richard Dent
Fame quotes by Juliana Hatfield
#164. I don't make money on the road, and so there's less and less incentive for me to do it when I don't have that adolescent desire for whatever it is, glory or fame. #Quote by Juliana Hatfield
Fame quotes by Oliver Goldsmith
#165. Of all kinds of ambition, that which pursues poetical fame is the wildest #Quote by Oliver Goldsmith
Fame quotes by Katharine Hepburn
#166. If you have fame, you never feel that you have fame, if you have the brains of a flea. Because fame is something that's over back of you. It ain't ahead ... Not ahead at all. I mean, if you've done it that's great, but "what are you going to do now?" is the only thing that matters. #Quote by Katharine Hepburn
Fame quotes by Comte De Lautreamont
#167. Throughout my life I have seen, without one exception, narrow-shouldered men performing innumerable idiotic acts, brustalising their fellows, and corrupted souls by every means. They call the motive for their actions: fame. Seeing these exhibitions I've longed to laugh, with the rest, but that strange imitation was impossible. Taking a penknife with a sharp-edged blade, I slit the flesh at the points joining the lips. For an instant I believed my aim was achieved. I saw in a mirror the mouth ruined at my own will! An error! Besides, the blood gushing freely from the two wounds prevented my distinguishing whether this really was the grin of others. But after some moments of comparison I saw quite clearly that my smile did not resemble that of humans: the fact is, I was not laughing. #Quote by Comte De Lautreamont
Fame quotes by Osho
#168. The whole of history is the history of murderers. If you become a murderer, fame will be very easy. You can become a prime minister, you can become a president - but these are all masks. Behind them you will find very violent people, terribly violent people hiding, smiling. Those smiles are political, diplomatic. If the mask slips, you will always see Genghis Khan, Tamerlane, Nadir Shah, Napoleon, Alexander, Hitler, hiding behind. #Quote by Osho
Fame quotes by Brenda Blethyn
#169. I think people often confuse success with fame and stardom. #Quote by Brenda Blethyn
Fame quotes by W.E.B. Du Bois
#170. And the final product of our training must be neither a psychologist nor a brick mason, but a man. And to make men, we must have ideals, broad, pure, and inspiring ends of living, not sordid money-getting ... The worker must work for the glory of his handiwork, not simply for pay; the thinker must think for truth, not fame. #Quote by W.E.B. Du Bois
Fame quotes by Jerry B. Jenkins
#171. I've written enough books with real celebrities, such as Walter Payton and Hank Aaron and Billy Graham, to know that fame looks good only to people who don't have it. #Quote by Jerry B. Jenkins
Fame quotes by Jeanne Ryan
#172. we've learned an interesting rule about fame. Those who seem desperate for it are the people that others least want to see. #Quote by Jeanne Ryan
Fame quotes by Scott Patterson
#173. Passion is the thing that sustains you in acting. If you're doing it for fame and money, don't even bother because it will never happen. The last thing I ever expected was to be paid for this. #Quote by Scott Patterson
Fame quotes by Frank Gifford
#174. Rosie is a Hall of Fame player, and I wouldn't be in the Hall of Fame if it weren't for him. #Quote by Frank Gifford
Fame quotes by Dante Alighieri
#175. Now you must cast aside your laziness,"
my master said, "for he who rests on down
or under covers cannot come to fame;
and he who spends his life without renown
leaves such a vestige of himself on earth
as smoke bequeaths to air or foam to water.
Therefore, get up; defeat your breathlessness
with spirit that can win all battles if
the body's heaviness does not deter it.
A longer ladder still is to be climbed;
it's not enough to have left them behind;
if you have understood, now profit from it. #Quote by Dante Alighieri
Fame quotes by Leonardo Da Vinci
#176. Nothing should be so greatly feared as empty fame. #Quote by Leonardo Da Vinci
Fame quotes by Marie De Rabutin-Chantal, Marquise De Sevigne
#177. Long life will sometimes obscure the star of fame. #Quote by Marie De Rabutin-Chantal, Marquise De Sevigne
Fame quotes by Charles Jefferson
#178. The world did not appreciate Abraham Lincoln until he died. His great figure has been looming higher each succeeding decade. We understand Jesus better than any other generation..A great man is like a mountain, you cannot appreciate when standing at its base. #Quote by Charles Jefferson
Fame quotes by Mohsin Ali Shaukat
#179. Passion doesn't rely on fame rather fame rely on your passion, i see people joining a field, hungry for fame, want to become a brand, trying to convert their weaknesses into strengths by ignoring the Brand that God has created by Himself by giving you a face and task and the love for that specific assigned task is in your heart, try to recognize that true power rather than focusing on others, their destinations and paths.

You are here on planet earth to show people either your face becomes the autograph of God if u recognize your own self and brand, or the autograph of the devil by not following your own true nature and trying to become something else, by participating in the destructive aspect of the universe. #Quote by Mohsin Ali Shaukat
Fame quotes by Stephen Kendrick
#180. Your quality of life is directly tied to the amount of love flowing in you and through you to others. Though it's often overlooked, love is infinitely more valuable than riches, fame, or honor. They will pass away, but love remains. #Quote by Stephen Kendrick
Fame quotes by Abraham H. Maslow
#181. The most stable, and therefore, the most healthy self-esteem is based on deserved respect from others rather than on external fame or celebrity and unwarranted adulation. #Quote by Abraham H. Maslow
Fame quotes by Anya Seton
#182. Presently comfort came to him, and he thought the she had always given him of her strength though he had never quite realised it until now.
Glory had passed him by; fame too perhaps would not endure; it might well be that the incalculable goddess would decree ill fame as his due. Perhaps there might not be included in his epitah the one tribute to his knighthood the he knew he deserved "Ii fut toujours bon et loyal chevalier" (He was always good and loyal knight)
But whatever the shadowed years might bring, as long as life should last, he knew that he had here at his side one sure recompense and one abiding loyalty. #Quote by Anya Seton
Fame quotes by Abdul Kalam
#183. If you are born with fame, it is an accident. If you die with fame, it is an achievement. #Quote by Abdul Kalam
Fame quotes by Sirshree
Do not acquire only money, authority, name, fame, comfort, and accomplishment at body-mind level. Attain the highest possibility of a human being. #Quote by Sirshree
Fame quotes by Ansel Elgort
#185. I think that most people who are just artists, who are getting famous, would trade a lot of their fame back for some normalcy, pretty much immediately. #Quote by Ansel Elgort
Fame quotes by Dave Winfield
#186. The sooner I get into the Hall of Fame the better. #Quote by Dave Winfield
Fame quotes by Ifeanyi Enoch Onuoha
#187. Success is not money, cars, fame or material possessions but the lives you touched positively. #Quote by Ifeanyi Enoch Onuoha
Fame quotes by Thomas Campbell
#188. United States, your banner wears Two emblems
one of fame; Alas! the other that it bears Reminds us of your shame. Your banner's constellation types White freedom with its stars, But what's the meaning of the stripes? They mean your negroes' scars. #Quote by Thomas Campbell
Fame quotes by Peter Criss
#189. I'll always be the catman. #Quote by Peter Criss
Fame quotes by Thomas Mann
#190. He sat there, the master, the artist who had achieved his dignity, the author of "A Wretched Man," who, employing a form of exemplary purity, had renounced bohemianism and the dismal chasm, had broken with the abyss and reviled all vileness. He had risen high, transcending his knowledge and outgrowing all irony, he had adjusted his responsibilities toward the public and its trust in him-he, whose fame was official, whose name was ennobled, and whose style was a model for schoolboys. #Quote by Thomas Mann
Fame quotes by Nicole  Williams
#191. No amount of fame was worth the cost of losing you. #Quote by Nicole Williams
Fame quotes by Corey Taylor
#192. You gotta remember: we're musicians ... we're just crazy people who can't get along sometimes. I've definitely come to the table with my knife in my pocket a couple of times; you know how it is. It's part of being human. Now add fame and money and all that rock and roll craziness to it - we're lucky we don't eat each other in this industry! #Quote by Corey Taylor
Fame quotes by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
#193. Love of fame, fear of disgrace, schemes for advancement, desire to make life comfortable and pleasant, and the urge to humiliate others are often at the root of the valour men hold in such high esteem. #Quote by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
Fame quotes by Gale Sayers
#194. There are some people that probably should be in the Hall of Fame, but they're not for some reason. #Quote by Gale Sayers
Fame quotes by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
#195. Never get a reputation for a small perfection if you are trying for fame in a loftier area. The world can only judge by generals, and it sees that those who pay considerable attention to minutiae seldom have their minds occupied with great things. #Quote by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
Fame quotes by Mr. T
#196. WWE asked me to be in the Hall of Fame, and I turned it down. You know why? They put Pete Rose in the wrestling Hall of Fame. This guy can't even get into his own Hall of Fame. #Quote by Mr. T
Fame quotes by Ashley Olsen

Fame quotes by Samuel Johnson
#199. Every man, who proposes to grow eminent by learning, should carry in his mind, at once, the difficulty of excellence, and the force of industry; and remember that fame is not conferred but as the recompense of labour, and that labour, vigorously continued, has not often failed of its reward. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Fame quotes by Jamie Cullum
#200. You're only famous in the eyes of others. Inside, you're still the same, and not a hundred million records or TV shows can change that. I think the only pitfall of fame is believing that it means something, and behaving like that. #Quote by Jamie Cullum
