Fame Is Fleeting


Given a choice between Fame and Fortune, do yourself a favor and always choose the latter.

Yes, it’s true, money cannot buy happiness. But what it provides in its own shallow way really isn’t all that bad.

Fame, on the other hand, fades. Quickly. Sometimes when you still think you’re famous. People may know your name or whatever you’re famous for, but they don’t necessarily know you.

Take Matt Harvey, pitching phenom of the NY Mets. He plays in the largest media market in the world before some of baseball’s most rabid fans. Tonight he takes the mound as the National League’s starting pitcher in the MLB All-Star Game.

And yet, even New Yorkers don’t know who he is…

Like I said –- given the choice –- always opt to fill the vault.
