Famous quotes containing the word fame:

    Those who write for lucre or fame are grosser Iscariots than the cartel robbers, for they steal the genius of the people, which is its will to resist evil.
    Edward Dahlberg (1900–1977)

    I have made a very rude translation of the Seven against Thebes, and Pindar too I have looked at, and wish he was better worth translating. I believe even the best things are not equal to their fame. Perhaps it would be better to translate fame itself,—or is not that what the poets themselves do? However, I have not done with Pindar yet.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The best people renounce all for one goal, the eternal fame of mortals; but most people stuff themselves like cattle.
    Heraclitus (c. 535–475 B.C.)
