Glory is fleeting, but obscurity is forever.
Being famous is not something that would make me feel successful - unless one was striving for mediocrity.
Famous people feel that they must perpetually be on the crest of the wave, not realising that it is against all the rules of life. You can't be on top all the time, it isn't natural.
Olivia De Havilland
Don't pay any attention to what they write about you. Just measure it in inches.
I just want to make music, I don't want people to talk about me. All I've ever wanted to do was sing. I don't want to be a celebrity. I don't want to be in people's faces, you know, constantly on covers of magazine that I haven't even known I'm on.
A sign of celebrity is that his name is often worth more than his services.
Daniel J. Boorstin
Andy Warhol made fame more famous.
I imagined being a famous writer would be like being like Jane Austen.
J. K. Rowling

Moon Unit Zappa
Mum loves me being famous! She is so excited and proud, as she had me so young and couldn't support me, so I am living her dream, it's sweeter for both of us. It's her 40th birthday soon and I'm going to buy her 40 presents.
Celebrity is the advantage of being known to people who we don't know, and who don't know us.
Celebrity damages private life.

It's funny, when bands or younger musicians ask me: 'So, what does it take to make it?' Well, first explain to me what you mean by 'making it': Do you want to be a rock star or do you want music to be your livelihood?
Eddie Van Halen
For me, growing up, the downside of it was that as a kid you don't want to stand out. You don't want to have a famous father let alone get a job because of your famous father, you know? But I'm a product of nepotism. That's how I got my foot in the door, through my dad.
I never wanted to be a celebrity; I never wanted to be famous. And in my daily life, I work really hard to not trade on it in any way.
Sarah Jessica Parker
Power is not of a man. Wealth does not center in the person of the wealthy. Celebrity is not inherent in any personality. To be celebrated, to be wealthy, to have power requires access to major institutions.
C. Wright Mills
Fame is a lot of pressure, especially when you're responsible for your entire family. Financially, emotionally - everything.
Fame - anyone who says he doesn't like it is crazy.
I'm sick to death of famous people standing up and using their celebrity to promote a cause. If I see a particular need, I do try to help. But there's a lot that can be achieved by putting a check in the right place and shutting up about it.
Fame is like caviar, you know - it's good to have caviar but not when you have it at every meal.
I like being famous when it's convenient for me and completely anonymous when it's not.
What a heavy burden is a name that has become too famous.
