The desire for acclaim is not new (2018)

The writer Elisa Gabbert in the Paris Review cites Bruce Wagner on the human desire for acclaim: 
An old Buddhist text said that the desire for acclaim is so strong that in many ways it’s a more difficult hardship to overcome than poverty or disease. This particular Buddhist text I was reading said that even the most reclusive of cave monks will have the desire to be known the world over as the most reclusive of cave monks.
