Fame doesn’t fulfill you. It warms you a bit, but that warmth is temporary. (Marilyn Monroe, late movie actress)

This is a significant statement from a woman who achieved worldwide fame for the roles she played in films and photos. Seeking security and love, she married often and accepted the public’s accolades. In the end, it was not enough—warm but temporary, as she said—and she took her own life. Better to find fulfillment in loving service rather than in celebrity.

Because of the service by which you have proved yourselves, others will praise God (2 Corinthians 9:13).
