Nov 28 ?? The Vanity of Fame

Ave Maria!

“Maybe it’s worldly glory that can fulfill man? Let’s take a glance at the ranks of distinguished people, who occupy lofty positions and enjoy great fame. Perhaps they possess the coveted pearl of happiness? Let’s ask them to see if maybe they wouldn’t want their glory to embrace wider horizons, to shine forth in other fields??Undoubtedly they would all accept this possibility, without considering, though, that human glory is a crystal which is very fragile. And at the conclusion of everything, they too will be visited by death??and after that??? What good will be all of the human praise and monuments, if their eternity is unhappy?” (SK #995)
