“It is the part of an indiscreet and troublesome ambition to care too much about fame – about what the world says of us; to be always looking in the faces of others for approval; to be always anxious for the effect of what we do and say; to be always shouting, to hear the echo of our own voices.

Believe me.. the talent of success is nothing more than doing what you can do well, and doing well whatever you do without thought of fame. If it comes at all it will come because it is deserved, not because it is sought after.”

– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow,┬áThe Century, Volume 17, pp 7
