Quote of the Day
The greatest trap in our life is not success, popularity or power, but self-rejection.
I firmly believe that respect is a lot more important, and a lot greater, than popularity.
Leadership is not a popularity contest; it's about leaving your ego at the door. The name of the game is to lead without a title.
Robin S. Sharma
When the leaders choose to make themselves bidders at an auction of popularity, their talents, in the construction of the state, will be of no service. They will become flatterers instead of legislators; the instruments, not the guides, of the people.
If we get our self-esteem from superficial places, from our popularity, appearance, business success, financial situation, health, any of these, we will be disappointed, because no one can guarantee that we'll have them tomorrow.
I am a person who always tries not to be easily influenced by position or achievement. I thank God for the fact that I can share more kindness and a good quality of life through the popularity. Not for the popularity itself.
I don't care whether people like me or dislike me. I'm not on earth to win a popularity contest. I'm here to be the best human being I possibly can be.
One of my proudest moments is I didn't sell my soul for the sake of popularity.
George W. Bush
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
When people laugh at Mickey Mouse, it's because he's so human; and that is the secret of his popularity.
To his dog, every man is Napoleon; hence the constant popularity of dogs.
Avoid popularity if you would have peace.
An actor's popularity is fleeting. His success has the life expectancy of a small boy who is about to look into a gas tank with a lighted match.
Popularity makes no law invulnerable to invalidation. Americans accept judicial supervision of their democracy - judicial review of popular but possibly unconstitutional statutes - because they know that if the Constitution is truly to constitute the nation, it must trump some majority preferences.
We live in a society obsessed with public opinion. But leadership has never been about popularity.
True popularity comes from acts of kindness rather than acts of stupidity.
Thus the metric system did not really catch on in the States, unless you count the increasing popularity of the nine-millimeter bullet.
I just write what I wanted to write. I write what amuses me. It's totally for myself. I never in my wildest dreams expected this popularity.
J. K. Rowling
Avoid popularity; it has many snares, and no real benefit.
There are a lot of bands who claim to be punk and they only play the music, they have no clue what it's all about. It's a lifestyle. It's not about popularity and all that crap.
Billie Joe Armstrong
The big cop-out would be to accept popularity rather than opting to try to create potent work. It's so easy to do the popular thing, the expected thing, and that's where you start to cheat yourself - and your fans, in the end - because there's an inherent dishonesty in pandering and dishing up what everyone's expecting.
If the people raise a great howl against my barbarity and cruelty, I will answer that war is war, and not popularity seeking.
William Tecumseh Sherman
Popularity should be no scale for the election of politicians. If it would depend on popularity, Donald Duck and The Muppets would take seats in senate.
Elections, for their part, are typically popularity contests rather than measures of candidates' relative competency or effectiveness. Imagine if scientific truth were determined according to which scientist was most popular. To be successful, scientists would have to be charismatic and attractive - and human knowledge would suffer terribly.
I believe we have become paralyzed, paralyzed by our desire to be loved. Now our founding fathers had the wisdom to know that social acceptance and popularity were fleeing, and that this country's principles needed to be rooted in strengths greater than the passions and the emotions of the times.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
