Quote of the Day

As far as friendships go, things change even without the fame. People start moving on. I have a few friends that are married and are starting to have kids and I'm like, 'Oh my goodness gracious - that's so insane.' I also have friends who are just doing their own thing, which is cool.
Even though the money is great and the fame is great, you still have a lot of disenfranchised young men that are participating in the NFL that are not very happy. A lot of them are very bitter. A lot them are very angry. So many of them have had no fathers and no home life, and basically, no education.
I grew up as a sports fan, and I know that a hall of fame is very different than an award for being the best of the year. It's a nod to the longevity of our accomplishment.
Fame terrifies me. I can say that with honesty. You're terrified that, when people know the real you, they won't like you.
Fame may go by and - so long, I've had you.
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 experience, but that's not where I live.
I never figured I'd go into the Hall of Fame. A kid from the Hill.
I like to hide behind the characters I play. Despite the public perception, I am a very private person who has a hard time with the fame thing.
I do not like the man who squanders life for fame; give me the man who living makes a name.
What is fame? The advantage of being known by people of whom you yourself know nothing, and for whom you care as little.
If we should be blessed by some great reward, such as fame or fortune, it's the fruit of a seed planted by us in the past.
The reward of art is not fame or success but intoxication: that is why so many bad artists are unable to give it up.
My friends are all really nice about my fame, they're just curious really, they ask lots of questions.
I came from nothing and achieved humungous fame and fortune. But I worked hard. I had discipline and determination. I had that ice in me.
Sugar Ray Leonard
I never prayed for no money, and I never prayed for no fame. I said, 'I'll take care of that myself. You just keep me healthy and I'll do all I can to try to turn people around, to try to steer 'em in the right direction.' That's the whole trip in life, ya know.
The thing that is cool about my come up is that I dealt with fame and having money gradually. It didn't happen overnight. It was something that took a while to happen. It was something that humbled me and made me very appreciative of my blessings more than I would have been if it had happened faster and easier.
In 1993 my birthday present was a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame.
My kids are not known, and I think that is very important. So far they have lived a normal life, and will continue to do so. I feel they should have the possibility to live a free life without the burden of fame I have created.
My goal has always been longevity. Not fame and fortune, just get a job and keep it.
The medium of response in America is fame; that's how a person that bounces a ball can make millions of dollars, and a school teacher with no fame makes $35,000.
Make sure your desire to do what you're aspiring to do is deeper than just fame and being a celebrity.
These things were happening in my life where I was like, 'Man, I wish my pops was here to see this.' I never had those thoughts before fame, when my life was just a regular life. I wasn't saying, 'I wish my dad could be around and see me working at Applebee's.'
The two things that can hurt you are if you need money or if you need fame. Those are the things that can be your Achilles heel. But if you don't need money and you don't need fame, then you're free.
Making the Hall of Fame, would it be something that's gratifying because of what I've sacrificed? Sure. Baseball has been a big part of our lives. We've sacrificed our bodies. It's the way we made our living.
No true and permanent fame can be founded except in labors which promote the happiness of mankind.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
