At the Sahara, the seats are banked and most of the audience is looking down at the stage. Everybody in the business knows: Up for singers, down for comics. The people want to idealize a singer.

Man starts over again everyday, in spite of all he knows, against all he knows.
Emile M. Cioran
I had rather have a plain, russet-coated Captain, that knows what he fights for, and loves what he knows, than that which you call a Gentle-man and is nothing else.

Neil deGrasse Tyson
What a man knows is everywhere at war with what he wants.
Joseph Wood Krutch
I'm not a type-B personality who knows I have a cancer growing inside of me and can live with the knowledge. I go into a kung-fu attack position when I go through the door of a hospital.
Anybody, providing he knows how to be amusing, has the right to talk about himself.

I don't mean being famous is a perk, because one knows that it's not necessarily a perk, but there are certain perks to being well-known and respected in one's field. Public perks. Like, I don't know, general friendliness and willingness to please, just to point out two.
William Arthur Ward
Martin Luther King, Jr.
