All FAME is dangerous, good bringeth envy, bad shame.
Blessed is he whose FAME does not outshine his truth.
FAME always goes with the principles.
FAME has also this great drawback, that if we pursue it
we must direct our lives in such a way as to please the
fancy of men, avoiding what they dislike and seeking
what is pleasing to them.
FAME is a magnifying glass.
FAME is the perfume of heroic deeds.
FAME is the spur that the clear spirit doth raise.
FAME is what you have taken,
Character’s what you give;
When to this truth you waken,
Then you begin to live.
He lives in FAME who dies in virtue’s cause.
No true and permanent FAME can be founded except in
labours which promote the happiness of mankind.
Passion for FAME : a passion which is the instinct of all
Rather than love, than money, than FAME, give me truth.
Henry David Thoreau
Rejoice ye dead, where’re your spirits dwell,
Rejoice that yet on earth your FAME is bright.
The crown and glory of life is character. It is noblest
possession of man. It exercises a greater power than
wealth and secures all the honour without the
jealousies of FAME.
We toil for FAME,
We live on crusts,
We make a name,
Then we are busts.
