To live worthily with self-respect, one has to over come difficulties. It is out of hard and ceaseless struggle alone that one derives strength, confidence and recognition.BR Ambedkar
Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth.
-Henry David Thoreau
Happiness comes from understanding one basic principle. Some things are within our control and some things are not. Our opinions, ambitions, desires, and aversions are in our control. We can change the contents of our inner character. Our body, wealth, fame, and social status are not in our control. They are external to us and not our concern.
It is better to burn out than to fade away.
-Neil Young / Rust never sleeps / 1979
-Kurt Cobain / Suicide note / 1994
They say you die twice. One time when you stop breathing and a second time, a bit later on, when somebody says your name for the last time.
Wealth is like sea-water; the more we drink, the thirstier we become; and the same is true of fame.
