What is “Fame“? Well, there are plenty of quotes with fame in them!

Here are some of my favourites:

“A celebrity is a person who is known for his well-knownness.”

  • Daniel J. BoorstinThe Image: A Guide to Pseudo-Events in America (1961), Chapter 3, p. 57.

“I think fame itself is not a rewarding thing. The most you can say is that it gets you a seat in restaurants.”

“How dreary — to be — Somebody!
How public — like a Frog —
To tell one’s name — the livelong June —
To an admiring Bog!”

  • Emily Dickinson, “I’m Nobody! Who are you?” (1891). In some editions “June” has been altered to “day”.

“The courage to stand alone as if others didn’t exist and think only of what you’re doing. Not to get scared if people ignore you. You have to wait for years, have to die. Then after you’re dead, if you’re lucky, you become somebody.”

  1. I think Andy Warhol said that we all have our 15 minutes of fame and celebrity in our lives 🙂 regarding our lifetime it’s not that long 🙂 but to be true , or at least for me it’s not what i’m looking for 🙂
