You want to be famous, because inside yourself you are no body. If you are inwardly rich, then it does not matter to you whether you are known or unknown. To be inwardly rich is much more arduous than to be outwardly rich and famous. To be inwardly rich int he mind has to understand and put away things that are not important, like wanting to be famous.
Inward richness implies standing alone, but the man who wants to be famous is afraid to stand alone because he depends on people's flattery and good opinion.
