 Alexander Pope once said...

All fame is foreign, but of true desert; Plays round the head, but comes not to the heart: One self approving hour whole years out-weighs Of stupid starers, and of loud huzzas; And more true joy Marcellus exil'd feels, Than Caesar with a senate at his heels.

In Self-examination Quotes, by Alexander Pope , Source: Essay on Man (ep. IV, l. 253)
