I never have issues in handling the fame. I was in a boarding school, as I am from a middle-class family. We didn't have a lot of money, so we all learned to respect money and understood its real value.
I love traveling. It not only opens my mind up, but it also allows me to use my fame in another way through humanitarian works and stuff, and being an influence around the world.
Emmitt Smith has run past legends, danced with stars and posed for the sculptor crafting his Hall of Fame bust. He's built upon his athletic talents by working hard, seizing opportunities and reaching out to others for advice when he needed it.
Fame always brings loneliness. Success is as ice cold and lonely as the North Pole.
That has always seemed to me one of the stranger aspects of literary fame: you prove your competence as a writer and an inventor of stories, and then people clamour for you to make speeches and tell them what you think about the world.
J. M. Coetzee
I'm trying to deal with ideas about histories, fame, hearsay, and how public identities are constructed.
Fame doesn't fulfill you. It warms you a bit, but that warmth is temporary.
I remember being superyoung, like nine or ten years old, and thinking, 'Man, I wonder what famous people eat for breakfast. They must have some special kind of cereal!' My mind was so warped by the idea of fame.
That should be the measure of success for everyone. It's not money, it's not fame, it's not celebrity; my index of success is happiness.

We're constantly striving for success, fame and comfort when all we really need to be happy is someone or some thing to be enthusiastic about.
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
My children have absolutely no interest in my fame. They're very sophisticated, and they have a spiritual perspective on material things because we go to church.
I'm not a rock star. Sure I am, to a certain extent because of the situation, but when kids ask me how it feels to be a rock star, I say leave me alone, I'm not a rock star. I'm not in it for the fame, I'm in it because I like to play.
Eddie Van Halen
I did stand-up comedy for 18 years. Ten of those years were spent learning, four years were spent refining, and four years were spent in wild success. I was seeking comic originality, and fame fell on me as a byproduct. The course was more plodding than heroic.
Fame changes a lot of things, but it can't change a lightbulb.
Don't confuse fame with success. Madonna is one; Helen Keller is the other.

Some artists are working to buy the mansion or whatever the element of fame must bear, but I spend all my money on my show.
Fame is very agreeable, but the bad thing is that it goes on 24 hours a day.
Gabriel Garcia Marquez
I am a free man. I do not need to copy Petrarca or Boccaccio. My own genius is enough. Let others worry themselves about style, and so cease to be themselves. Without a master, without a model, without a guide, I go to work and earn my living, my well-being and my fame.
If you wanna be famous, then it's okay if the music is fake, because fame isn't real.
I sacrificed my anonymity for my father, whereas he sacrificed me for his fame.
C. S. Lewis
John F. Kennedy
