There is a real positive advantage to being famous. It seems a TV celebrity can spout even silly ideas and have them given instant credibility. Celebrity probably gives a person more potential public impact than possessing a Nobel Prize and more money too. The biblical Proverb 4:7 said, “Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all your getting get understanding.” I have tried to follow that suggestion, but these days it might be said,
Get fame and cultivate your public image.
