People confuse fame with validation or love. But fame is not the reward. The reward is getting fulfillment out of doing the thing you love.
I had a lot of resistance, and not just to fame. I was always conscious of not changing.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Fame hit me like a ton of bricks.
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.
If cash comes with fame, come fame; if cash comes without fame, come cash.
One of the downsides of being famous is that folks pay far more attention to you than they should. American celebrities are constantly under surveillance, and every word they say is subject to scrutiny. So, be careful what you wish for if you desire fame. No human being should be a goldfish.
The fame thing is interesting because I never wanted to be famous, and I never dreamt I would be famous.
J. K. Rowling
I'm really looking forward to the Hall of Fame ceremonies. It's going to be unbelievable - just crazy. I'm looking forward to thanking all the fans for inspiring me to go out there and play my best football each and every game.
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.
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.
Wealth is like sea-water; the more we drink, the thirstier we become; and the same is true of fame.
Good fame is like fire; when you have kindled you may easily preserve it; but if you extinguish it, you will not easily kindle it again.
I would advise all youths aspiring to athletic fame or a professional career to practice clean living, fair play and good sportsmanship.
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
A life lived with integrity - even if it lacks the trappings of fame and fortune is a shining star in whose light others may follow in the years to come.
Fame is a fickle food upon a shifting plate.
At the final day, the Savior will not ask about the nature of our callings. He will not inquire about our material possessions or fame. He will ask if we ministered to the sick, gave food and drink to the hungry, visited those in prison, or gave succor to the weak.
Joseph B. Wirthlin
It does seem true that a lot of people will do anything, however humiliating, for fame.
In 1993 my birthday present was a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
