    You can hoard money and keep it around for a long time. You have control (even if it's sometimes limited) over whether your money is lost or not.

    Fame, however, is a factor that is purely controlled by the whims of others, and there's a reason the phrase "fifteen minutes of fame" was coined.

    Sundeep..  This is the toughest question you have asked.  I see this one takes much thought. 
    I would say that if you acquired your money through your fame......as in a famous Athlete, Celebrity or Award-Winning Author.....should your bright light of "fame' become dim, through some unforeseen circumstance or event.....eventually your money would also dwindle and in that case, your fame would also fade away somewhat. 

    However, You can be wealthy and have a great, recognizable name...& much fame that garners respect and admiration from everyone.  Should you commit a serious crime against humanity, cause destruction and chaos due to greed and a hateful heart......Your name would lose all meaning and your image would no longer bring you honor.  At that point, all your money would do you no good in the eyes of others. 

    It seems to me that no matter which you lose first.....your money or your name/fame......In the end, you have really lost everything that gave you your identity. 

    And in the very FINAL end of your life......you cannot take either with you ......

    Money. There are a lot of famous people who have gone broke! smile
    Once you become famous for something you'll always either be known for what you did or said. You can easily be searched by those who were not of your era or who aren't familiar with you.

      You and I think a lot alike because you always seem to post the same answer I'm ready to give.
