„Those who know the joys and miseries of celebrity when they have passed the age of forty know how to defend themselves.“

—  Sarah Bernhardt French actress 1844 - 1923
My Double Life (1907), Context: Those who know the joys and miseries of celebrity when they have passed the age of forty know how to defend themselves. They are at the beginning of a series of small worries, thunderbolts hidden under flowers, but they know how to hold in check that monster advertisement. It is a sort of octopus with innumerable tentacles. It throws out to right and left, in front and behind, its clammy arms, and gathers in, through its thousand little suckers, all the gossip and slander and praise afloat, to spit out again at the public when it is vomiting its black gall. But those who are caught in the clutches of celebrity at the age of twenty two know nothing. Ch. 28 <!-- p. 324 -->
