Talent is God given. Be humble. Fame is man-given. Be grateful. Conceit is self-given. Be careful.— John Wooden
Jittery name and fame quotes that are about hall of fame
Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth.
Toil and risk are the price of glory, but it is a lovely thing to live with courage and die leaving an everlasting fame.
Some seek fame cause they need validation, Some say hating is confused admiration.
We are reminded that, in the fleeting time we have on this Earth, what matters is not wealth, or status, or power, or fame, but rather how well we have loved and what small part we have played in making the lives of other people better.
If you aim for only wealth, beauty, fame, & power, you aim too low.
Humility, gentleness, gratitude, & service is aiming high.
I'm not interested in fame and glory.
It's just that I would like others to know what a happy dance this is.
I believe the single most significant decision I can make on a day-to-day basis is my choice of attitude. It is more important than my past, my education, my bankroll, my successes or failures, fame or pain, what other people think of me or say about me, my circumstances, or my position.
Our souls are not hungry for fame, comfort, wealth, or power.
Our souls are hungry for meaning, for the sense that we have figured out how to live so that our lives matter.
If you do not find peace within, you will not find it anywhere else.
The Goal of Life is the attainment of Peace and not the achievement of power, name, fame and wealth.
Men Wanted for Dangerous Expedition: Low Wages for Long Hours of Arduous Labour under Brutal Conditions; Months of Continual Darkness and Extreme Cold; Great Risk to Life and Limb from Disease, Accidents and Other Hazards; Small Chance of Fame in Case of Success.
Boys, be ambitious. Be ambitious not for money, not for selfish aggrandizement, not for the evanescent thing which men call fame. Be ambitious for the attainment of all that a man can be.
Never be afraid to tread the path alone.
Know which is your path and follow it wherever it may lead you; do not feel you have to follow in someone else's footsteps.
Those who are truly wise will remain unmoved by feelings of happiness and suffering, fame and disgrace, praise and blame, gain and loss.They will remain calm like the eye of a hurricane.
If we lived in a state where virtue was profitable, common sense would make us saintly. But since we see that avarice, anger, pride and stupidity commonly profit far beyond charity, modesty, justice and thought, perhaps we must stand fast a little, even at the risk of being heroes.
Make your ego porous. Will is of little importance, complaining is nothing, fame is nothing. Openness, patience, receptivity, solitude is everything.
Those who live by mystery & charlatanerie, fearing you would render them useless by simplifying the Christian philosophy - the most sublime and benevolent, but most perverted system that ever shone on man - endeavored to crush your well-earned & well-deserved fame.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings.
Only one thing endures and that is character.
A lot of things come with fame, whether it's losing friends or losing family.
You still gotta stand up and be that guy even when you ain't having great things. Because you've gotta be the spokesperson for your people.
Again, our marriage problems are not really marriage problems.
They are heart problems. They are God problems. Our lack of intimacy with God causes a void that we try to fill with the frailest of substitutes. Like wealth or pleasure. Like fame or respect. Like people. Like marriage.
I believe that anyone can be successful in life, regardless of natural talent or the environment within which we live. This is not based on measuring success by human competitiveness for wealth, possessions, influence, and fame, but adhering to God's standards of truth, justice, humility, service, compassion, forgiveness, and love.
The general who advances without coveting fame and retreats without fearing disgrace, whose only thought is to protect his country and do good service for his sovereign, is the jewel of the kingdom.
I have a definition of success. For me it's very simple. It's not about wealth and fame and power. It's about how many shining eyes I have around me.
If he cannot stop the mind that seeks after fame and profit, he will spend his life without finding peace.
Sometimes I find myself thinking, rather wistfully, about Lao Tzu's famous dictum: 'Govern a great nation as you would cook a small fish.' All around me I see something very different, let us say - a number of angry dwarfs trying to grill a whale.
I take things like honor and loyalty seriously. It's more important to me than any materialistic thing or any fame I could have.
I'm trying to deal with ideas about histories, fame, hearsay, and how public identities are constructed.
