"I do not like the man who squanders life for fame; give me the man who living makes a name."
"Society is addicted to fame, scandal, gossip and greed. The media loves to pander to the stupidity of young pop idols, and reality television has made otherwise normal people engage in activities they would never do in real life, just for our entertainment. If fame is equivalent to the "good life," then why do so many famous people take it for granted? Maybe, fame is just a little overrated - don't you think!?! Even in the 19th Century, as Dickinson alludes, famous people squandered everything good in their lives in order to perpetuate legacies. Why can't we celebrate normalcy? Is it really that boring? If it is, then why are most things that truly satisfy our souls considered by the media to be mundane? The people who "living makes a name," as Dickinson says, are not in the national spotlight, but they should be in our personal spotlights, as the heroes of our everyday lives. Fathers, mothers, mentors, friends - these are the people who should be famous to you, and their presence in your life is worth a hundred times the price of fame. Celebrate a normal life with normal people in it, and you'll get the opportunity to see what the "good life" really means."
