Quote of the Day (Horace Greeley, on How ‘Fame is a Vapor’)

“Fame is a vapor; popularity an accident; riches take wings; the only earthly certainty is oblivion; no man can foresee what a day may bring forth; while those who cheer to-day will often curse to-morrow.”—American newspaper editor, publisher and Presidential candidate Horace Greeley (1811-1872), Recollections of a Busy Life (1868)
