A Quote by Edwin Hubble Chapin on fame, maxims, reputation, and truth

It is the penalty of fame that a man must ever keep rising. "Get a reputation, and then go to bed," is the absurdest of all maxims. "Keep up a reputation or go to bed, "would be nearer the truth.

Edwin Hubble Chapin (1814 - 1880)
