- Edward R. Murrow

I honor you, Hero, for you do not play to the crowd.
You play to your own soul.
An audience of one fills the house with its appreciation and applause.
Others follow you, and may attempt to emulate you,
but that is not why you are a hero.
Fame may smile upon you, or it may not.
The world may cheer your name, or you may be the unknown warrior
who rescued comrades in battle,
or taught a young girl how to shed tears of joy.
Whatever you did, you did not do for fame.
If you had, you would not be a Hero.
You are a Hero for your bold courageous inspired action.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

And wherever you chance to hit it,
Though close be your aim to the bull's-eye fame,
There are those who will never admit it.

fame.
If it goes by, I've always known it was fickle.
So at least it's something I experience,
but that's not where I live.

The cab driver wants a picture.
The waitress wants a handshake.
Everyone wants a piece of you.
