“Odysseus inclines his head. “True. But fame is a strange thing. Some men gain glory after they die, while others fade. What is admired in one generation is abhorred in another.” He spread his broad hands. “We cannot say who will survive the holocaust of memory. Who knows?” He smiles. “Perhaps one day even I will be famous. Perhaps more famous than you.”
― Madeline Miller, The Song of Achilles
This saying covers a lot of unsung heroes or less sung heroes. On the illuminating sky of fame, some emerge sooner or some emerge later and some emerge never. This is luck, this is fate.

- Taimoor Salahuddin aka Mooroo.
- Rana Hamza Saif.
- Wildlens by Abrar.
