Famous Quotes A-Z by Author Famous Quotes A-Z by Author

You know, people make a lot of money talking about me, don't they? They just get on those shows, and they talk away. There's nothing I can do. And that's one of the great lessons I try to convey in my book, which my mother implanted in me as a young girl.. Is you can either be an actor in your own life, or a reactor in somebody else's.
Hillary Rodham Clinton - Life - Money - Famous - Motivational

If we allow the celebrity rock-star model of leadership to triumph, we will see the decline of corporations and institutions of all types. The twentieth century was a century of greatness, but we face the very real prospect that the next century will see very few enduring great institutions.
Jim Collins - Management - Famous - Leadership - Great

The world reacts very strangely to people they see on TV, and I can begin to understand how anchor monsters are made. If you're not careful, you can become used to being treated as though you're special and begin to expect it. For a reporter, that's the kiss of death.
Anderson Cooper - Understanding - Famous - Power - News

I've stopped caring about skeptics, but if they libel or defame me they will end up in court.
Uri Geller - Famous
- Criticism

Fifty per cent of the people who come here genuinely want to see my collection; the others to meet what they consider a celebrity.
Peggy Guggenheim - Museum
- Art Collecting - Italy - Celebrity - Famous

I don't think about my fame very much and I don't dwell on success. Maybe that's one reason I'm successful.
Calvin Klein - Famous - Success

You aren't famous until my mother has heard of you.
Jay Leno - Famous

It's fun when you're driving, and people wave at you, and you wave back. I think you either like people or you don't. I mean, I don't want to put on sunglasses. That's why I'm in show business.
Jay Leno - Famous - Fun - People


When you're touring and if you go to a party, there's automatically a celebrity-audience distance. It follows you around, especially when you're on the road in small towns. Any time there is awe, it gets very difficult to be normal, to be yourself. But I'm not saying that that's what made me the way I am. I've probably always been distant.
Steve Martin -
Famous - Difficult

Reviews for someone like me come in three packages. One is justifiable praise, the second is justifiable criticism, and the third is, "This is only published because he’s a celebrity."
Steve Martin - Famous - Criticism - Book - Praise

I'm 48. For a while after 'The Jerk' (movie) I had a feeling of failure. I was a little scared. First people discover you and they love you. You get big and then you fail. And people are glad that you fail. But I've always come back and I've started to trust myself.
Steve Martin - Famous - Criticism - Failure - Trust


You know, there's a moment when you're famous when it's unbearable to go out because you're too famous. And then there's a moment when you're famous just right.
Steve Martin - Famous


I seem to have developed quite a following among younger people.
I'm enjoying it. It's nice when you work hard and see that people enjoy it.
George Ross - Famous - Hard Work - Enjoyment


I never expected to be in the papers. I personally never expected to be in the papers. The height of my ambition for these books was, well frankly, to get reviewed. A lot of children's books don't even get reviewed.. forget good review, bad review. Personally, no, I never expected to be in the papers so it's an odd experience when it happens to you.
J. K. Rowling - Success - Ambition - Book
- Media - Famous

I didn't think they'd rake through my bins, I didn't expect to be photographed on the beach through long lenses. I never dreamt it would impact my daughter's life negatively, which at times it has. It would be churlish to say there's nothing good about being famous; to have a total stranger walk up to you as you're walking around Safeways, and say a number of nice things that they might say about your work... I mean of course you walk on with a bit more spring in your step.
J. K. Rowling - Media - Famous - Negative - Dreams

The fame thing is interesting because I never wanted to be famous, and I never dreamt I would be famous. You know, my fantasy of being a famous writer, and again there's a slight disconnect with reality which happens a lot with me. I imagined being a famous writer would be like being like Jane Austen.
J. K. Rowling - Book - Famous - Dreams
