What is fame? The advantage of being known by people of whom you yourself know nothing, and for whom you care as little.
Fame is the thirst of youth.
O Fame! If I e'er took delight in thy praises, 'Twas less for the sake of thy high-sounding phrases, Than to see the bright eyes of the dear one discover The thought that I was not unworthy to love her.
Folly loves the martyrdom of fame.
