Fame or Faithfulness; Which Should be Prioritized? Fame or Faithfulness; Which Should be Prioritized?

November 27, 2012

This write up discusses the advantages and disadvantages associated in
prioritizing fame over faithfulness or faithfulness over fame. It
asserts that there are two unequal parallels in that a balance cannot be struck.Hence, the onus is on the individual to state the one that
should be given priority at the expense of the other.

Fame and faithfulness are virtues mankind appreciate. As a matter of
fact, most peoples of the world would desire they have both virtues and
more importantly, strike an even balance between them. However, this
feat is practically impossible as the terms ‘fame’ and ‘faithfulness’
are described as ‘two unequal parallels’. The big question is ‘should
faithfulness be prioritized over fame or should fame be prioritized over

Of course, fame exposes people to the world. Many celebrities become
influential world figures, courtesy of fame. No doubt, fame brings to
the spotlight an array of ‘diligent’ individuals  who wish to be famous
and favours such as financial favours, contract-based offers form
leading firms from every nook and canny of the world, admiration by
