Walt Disney on being a Celebrity

Walt Disney was once asked how it felt to be a celebrity. "It feels fine," he replied, "when it helps to get a good seat for a football game. But it never helped me to make a good film or a good shot in a polo game, or command the obedience of my daughter. It doesn't even seem to keep fleas off our dogs -- and if being a celebrity won't give one an advantage over a couple of fleas, then I guess there can't be much in being a celebrity after all."

["I hope we never lose sight of one thing," Disney often joked. "That this was all started by a mouse."]
