Short Link to this Quote:



Don Williams, Jr seems to be saying that while fame, wealth and material success (“fame and riches”) are temporary and do not last, displaying a lack of wisdom or good sense (“stupidity”) has perpetual, long-lasting consequences.

The quote suggests that being well-known or accumulating wealth provide only ephemeral rewards, whereas foolish decisions and behaviors can reverberate negatively forever. Williams appears to be advising that true value comes from cultivating prudence and intelligence, rather than chasing after fleeting markers of status.

In essence, the message is that making wise choices should take precedence over superficial gains, since the impacts of stupidity are enduring in a way fame, riches and external validation are not.
