James Dean

An emblem of Hollywood’s Golden Age, actor James Dean found critical and commercial success in a career cut short by his accidental death at age 24 in 1955. But despite his iconic image and global fame, the "Rebel Without a Cause" star reflected that he derived the greatest satisfaction from the work itself, not the fruits of that labor. It’s a sentiment so often echoed by those who have achieved fame that it’s worth taking to heart: The journey to success is often just as fulfilling as the final destination.
