7 Fame Quotes from Literature

Fame is a skittish jade, more fickle even than Fortune, and apt to shy, and bolt, and plunge away on very trifling causes. ~ Phineas Redux by Anthony Trollope He has had the power of making the world believe in him simply because he has been rich and a duke. ~ Phineas Redux by Anthony Trollope Hunters for gold or pursuers of fame, they all had gone out on that stream, bearing the sword, and often the torch, messengers of the might within the land, bearers of a spark from the sacred fire. What greatness had not floated on the ebb of that river into the mystery of an unknown earth!... The dreams of men, the seed of commonwealths, the germs of empires. ~ Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad "Simple, generous goodness is the best capital to found the business of this life upon. It lasts when fame and money fail, and is the only riches we can take out of this world with us." ~ Little Men by Louisa May Alcott Women can resist a man's love, a man's fame, a man's personal appearance, and a man's money, but they cannot resist a man's tongue when he knows how to talk to them. ~ The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins It takes very little fire to make a great deal of smoke nowadays, and notoriety is not real glory. ~ Jo's Boys by Louisa May Alcott "Fame is a pearl many dive for and only a few bring up. Even when they do, it is not perfect, and they sigh for more, and lose better things in struggling for them." ~ Jo's Boys by Louisa May Alcott
