Fame Quotes

Lying in a featherbed will bring you no fame, nor staying beneath the quilt, and he who uses up his life without achieving fame leaves no more vestige of himself on Earth than smoke in the air or foam upon the water.

Durante degli Alighieri

I did enjoy it," he says. "But it was very, very weird. You can blab on about seeing the other side of fame, but it doesn't mean shit until it happens to you. It wasn't so much the going on TV, or going to award ceremonies, or having a camera focused on your face. It was being famous in the supermarket, being famous in a restaurant. Fame is not just about being able to get out of a limo in Leicester Square, it's about trying to get into your house when there are eight photographers outside. When you think about being famous, you don't think about all that stuff. You think about the glamour. I wanted to turn the tap off when I'd done my job. But you can't.

Richard Paul Astley

Certainly fame is like a river, that beareth up things light and swoln, and drowns things weighty and solid.

Francis Bacon

In addition to the animal essence, we have something that is above animal existence. This something is called our egoism. It is based on our aspirations to wealth, honor, fame, power, and knowledge. Animals do not have these aspirations [...] envy, inclination to pleasures, and aspiration to honor. These aspirations bring a person to a level above the animal. Since they are above animal qualities, these aspirations and qualities are praiseworthy. On the other hand, their common natural utilization puts us below all other levels [i.e. still, vegetative, and animate].

Yehuda Ashlag

Welcome, brave Hero, to this course Retreat, Thou who excell'st whatever Rome call'd great; Great as thou art, yet others of thy Name Shall thee transcend in martial Acts and Fame. Two shall their Names from Africa receive, As Asia did to thee thy Glories give.

Jane Barker

To secure for you fame, credit as well as blessings, the help that you give to men in need, should possess the following attributes: whatever its extent, it should be considered by you as trifling so that it may be granted a high status; it should be given secretly, God will manifest it; and it must be given immediately so that it becomes pleasant.

Ali bin Abu-Talib

I sort of ended up in Los Angeles by accident. And it was sort of terrible to be jostled into this position of a fame-hungry starlet. Which is so honestly not me! In fact, I could use a bit more of that because I am such a hermit! So I allowed myself to get really bothered.

Kathryn Bailey Beckinsale

My fame had become annoying for my enemies, and a little trying, I confess, for my friends. But at that time all this stir and noise amused me vastly. I did nothing to attract attention. My somewhat fantastic tastes, my paleness and thinness, my peculiar way of dressing, my scorn of fashion, my general freedom in all respects, made me a being quite apart from all others. I did not recognise the fact. I did not read, I never read, the newspapers. So I did not know what was said about me, either favourable or unfavourable. Surrounded by a court of adorers of both sexes, I lived in a sunny dream.

Sarah Bernhardt

I've never sought success in order to get fame and money; it's the talent and the passion that count in success.

Ingrid Bergman

See Im humble but I live fame, for more deals on the table than a Bridge game.

Drake

All my first dates are interrupted by my fame because every picture taken is a fan that you can gain.

Drake

Truth over fame, you know I respect the blatant shit. When I hear em talkin, I just dont know what to make of it. Hate is so familiar to me, Im slowly embracing it. Doesnt come natural, bear wit me it could take a bit.

Drake

Love is important, and woman being shrewd bargainers probably know fame is not worth much. Id much rather have something I can spend, eat, or love, thank you very much

Alice Borchardt

Ah woe is me, through all my days Wisdom and wealth I both have got, And fame and name and great mens praise; But Love, ah! Love I have it not.

Henry Cuyler Bunner

Love must kiss that mortals eyes Who hopes to see fair Arcady. No gold can buy you entrance there; But beggared Love may go all bare No wisdom won with weariness; But Love goes in with Follys dress No fame that wit could ever win; But only Love may lead Love in.

Henry Cuyler Bunner
