Celebrity is a mask that eats into the face. As soon as one is aware of being 'somebody,' to be watched and listened to with extra interest, input ceases, and the performer goes blind and deaf in his over-animation. One can either see or be seen.
A celebrity is a person who works hard all of their life to become well known, and then wears dark glasses to avoid being recognized.
Fred A. Allen
Even the best things are not equal to their fame.
Henry David Thoreau
Whenever I see a famous person in public, I don't snap a picture or ask to be in a picture with them or ask for an autograph. They don't owe me a thing for being famous. The only thing I ask is that they not become upset when it seems like I am ignoring them. I'll give a polite nod if needed and I'll speak if spoken to, but I'm not going out of my way to interact with anyone, famous or not.
Duane Alan Hahn
You're always a little disappointing in person because you can't be the edited essence of yourself.
Acquaintance lessens fame.
It is dangerous to let the public behind the scenes. They are easily disillusioned and then they are angry with you, for it was the illusion they loved.
W. Somerset Maugham
People want you to be a crazy, out-of-control teen brat. They want you miserable, just like them. They don't want heroes; what they want is to see you fall.
There is no defense against criticism except obscurity.
It's hard to stay anonymous in the spotlight. If you don't want strangers to recognize you in public, don't perform on stage or in front of a camera in the first place. Either stay in the shadows or stop complaining about the fame you asked for.
Duane Alan Hahn
To want fame is to prefer dying scorned than forgotten.
E. M. Cioran
A sign of celebrity is often that their name is worth more than their services.
Daniel J. Boorstin
The love of fame is the last weakness which even the wise resign.
Publius Cornelius Tacitus
The professional celebrity, male and female, is the crowning result of the star system of a society that makes a fetish of competition. In America, this system is carried to the point where a man who can knock a small white ball into a series of holes in the ground with more efficiency than anyone else thereby gains social access to the President of the United States.
C. Wright Mills
Fame without funds is futile.
Duane Alan Hahn
The nice thing about being a celebrity is that, if you bore people, they think it's their fault.
If you're thin skinned you need to get out of the public eye.
Dr. Phil on the Late Show with David Letterman
Many actors are like migrant farm workers praying for steady work, but give them a TV series and little fame and their eyes are on the door before the second season is over.
Duane Alan Hahn
Some people appear to have a mental illness because they have a vitamin B deficiency. For example, the wife of a guy I used to chat with online had severe mood swings which seemed to be caused by food allergies or intolerances. She would became irrational, obnoxious, throw tantrums, and generally act like she had a mental illness. The horrid behavior stopped after she started taking a vitamin B complex. I’ve been taking Jarrow B-Right for many years. It makes me much easier to live with.
Unfermented soy is bad! “When she stopped eating soy, the mental problems went away.” Fermented soy doesn’t bother me, but the various versions of unfermented soy (soy flour, soybean oil, and so on) that are used in all kinds of products these days causes a negative mental health reaction in me that a vitamin B complex can’t tame. The sinister encroachment of soy has made the careful reading of ingredients a necessity.
Negative ions are good for us. You might want to avoid positive ion generators and ozone generators. Whenever I need a new air cleaner (with negative ion generator), I buy it from surroundair.com. A plain old air cleaner is better than nothing, but one that produces negative ions makes the air in a room fresher and easier for me to breathe. It also helps to brighten my mood.
Never litter. Toss it in the trash or take it home. Do not throw it on the ground.
Hydrofracking is bad for you, your family, your friends, and the environment.
