"I always want to say to people who want to be rich and famous: 'try being rich first'. See if that doesn't cover most of it. There's not much downside to being rich, other than paying taxes and having your relatives ask you for money. But when you become famous, you end up with a 24-hour job."
"Everyone will be famous for 15 minutes."Bill Murray on Andy Warhol
"I have no use for people who throw their weight around as celebrities, or for those who fawn over you just because you are famous."Bill Murray on Walt Disney
"What a heavy burden is a name that has become too famous."Bill Murray on Voltaire
"We all want to be famous people, and the moment we want to be something we are no longer free."Bill Murray on Jiddu Krishnamurti
"Famous, adj.: Conspicuously miserable."Bill Murray on Ambrose Bierce
"But I can only take so much TV, because there is so much advice. I find people will preach about virtually anything - your diet, how to live your life, how to improve your golf. The lot. I have always had a thing against the Mister Know-It-Alls."
"People only talk about what a joyous experience it is, but there is terror: Your life, as you know it, is over. It's over the day that child is born. It's over, and something completely new starts."
"No one really wants to admit they are lonely, and it is never really addressed very much between friends and family. But I have felt lonely many times in my life."
"While I have felt lonely many times in my life, the oddest feeling of all was after my mother, Lucille, died. My father had already died, but I always had some attachment to our big family while she was alive. It seems strange to say now that I felt so lonely, yet I did."
"There aren't many downsides to being rich, other than paying taxes and having relatives asking for money. But being famous, that's a 24 hour job right there."
