* "I want to live in a world where people become famous because of their work for peace and justice and care. I want the famous to be inspiring; their lives an example of what every human being has it in them to do act from love!"
-- Patch Adams

Fame is the thirst of youth. -- Lord Byron

Never work just for money. Money alone won't save your soul or build a decent family life or help you sleep at night. We're the richest nation on Earth, with the highest number of imprisoned people in the world. Our drug addictions and child poverty are among the highest in the industrialized world. So don't ever confuse wealth or fame with character.
-- Marian Wright Edelman

It is strange to be known so universally and yet to be so lonely.
-- Albert Einstein

Fame is proof that people are gullible
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

You don't need the fame to be vital.
-- Herbie Hancock

* Where are the unusual individuals, the daring pioneers, who will devote their lives to making a better history for humanity? In order to create a new history for mankind, human beings will first have to create a new history within themselves. They will have to liberate themselves from national, religious, racial, and class prejudices and from enslavement to honor, fame, and pleasure...
-- Frederick Kettner

I handle fame by not being famous...I'm not famous to me.
-- Bob Marley

It stirs up envy, fame does.
People feel fame gives them some kind of privilege to walk up to you and say anything to you
- and it won't hurt your feelings - like it's happening to your clothing.
-- Marilyn Monroe

With fame, you know, you can read about yourself, somebody else's ideas about you,
but what's important is how you feel about yourself
- for survival and living day to day with what comes up.
Marilyn Monroe

I don't think I realized that the cost of fame is that it's open season on every moment of your life.
-- Julia Roberts

If you come to fame not understanding who you are,
it will define who you are.

-- Oprah Winfrey
