How dreary to be somebody!
How public, like a frog
To tell your name the livelong day
To an admiring bog!"
― Emily Dickinson, The Complete Poems
"I've always been famous, it's just no one knew it yet."
― Lady Gaga
"Oh, the places you'll go! There is fun to be done!
There are points to be scored. There are games to be won.
And the magical things you can do with that ball
will make you the winning-est winner of all.
Fame! You'll be as famous as famous can be,
with the whole wide world watching you win on TV.
Except when they don't
Because, sometimes they won't.
I'm afraid that some times
you'll play lonely games too.
Games you can't win
'cause you'll play against you."
― Dr. Seuss, Oh, The Places You'll Go!
