Adulation Quotations

Looking back, yes, I made too many comebacks. But each comeback I was 100 percent sure that I would win. I never came back for the money, because I didn't need it. The adulation I was getting anyway in other spheres. But I'm a guy who likes to see how close he can get to the edge of the mountain - that's what makes me tick.
Sugar Ray Leonard

I wanted to play drums because I fell in love with the glitter and the lights, but it wasn't about adulation. It was being up there playing.
Charlie Watts

George Will

Martin Jacques
