A Quote by Chuang Chou, a.k.a. Chuang Tzu, Chuang Tse Chuang on fame, life, purpose, awareness, and awakening

Do not seek fame. Do not make plans. Do not be absorbed by activities. Do not think that you know. Be aware of all that is and dwell in the infinite. Wander where there is no path. Be all that heaven gave you, but act as though you have received nothing. Be empty, that is all.

Chuang Tzu (c.360 BC - c. 275 BC)

A Quote by Sanford Meisner on life, soul, souls, inspire, inspiration, impact, integrity, fame, famous, money, ability, gift, and talent

Life beats down and crushes our souls and theatre reminds us that we have one. At least the type of theatre that I'm interested in; that is, theatre that moves an audience. You have the opportunity to literally impact the lives of people if they work on material that has integrity. But today, most actors simply want to be famous. Well, being an actor was never supposed to be about fame and money. Being an actor is a religious calling because you've been given the ability, the gift to inspire humanity. Think about that on the way to your soap opera audition.

A Quote by John Eliot on achievement, confidence, fame, and benjamin franklin

Elevated levels of confidence are omnipresent among history’s greatest overachievers. Benjamin Franklin, one of the most famous men in the world even before he signed the Declaration of Independence once lamented about humility, “I cannot boast of much success in acquiring the reality of this virtue.”

John Eliot
