I am a publicist. My business name is Just Roots PR. I am always looking for quotations on publicity, celebrity, fame, success. Have you got anything? If you have, and I find it applicable and one I can use, I will post it on my website and create a link to your website.

The hero was distinguished by his achievement; the celebrity by his image or trademark. The hero created himself; the celebrity is created by the media. The hero was a big man; the celebrity is a big name.
-Daniel J. Boorstin

A sign of celebrity is that his name is often worth more than his services.
-Daniel J. Boorstin

It feels good when it helps to get a good seat for a football game. But it never helped me make a good film or a good shot in a polo game, or command the obedience of my daughter. It doesn’t even seem to keep the fleas off our dogs — and if being a celebrity won’t give me an advantage over a couple of fleas, then I guess there can’t be much in being a celebrity after all.
-Walt Disney, [On being a celebrity]

I just use my muscles as a conversation piece, like someone walking a cheetah down 42nd Street.
-Arnold Schwarzenegger

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 overanimation. One can either see or be seen.
-John Updike, Self-Consciousness: Memoirs, ch. 6, 1989

Never attempt to catch a whale with a minnow.
-P. T. (Phineas Taylor) Barnum
“You know I had rather be laughed at than not to be noticed at all…”
-P. T. (Phineas Taylor) Barnum
