Character is the one thing we develop in this world and take with us into the next.
Character is what you really are; reputation is what people say you are supposed to be.
Character is the face; reputation is the photograph.
Character grows from within; reputation grows from without.
Reputation is what you have when you move to a new community. Character is what you have when you leave.
Character is built over a lifetime. Reputation can be made in a moment.
Character grows like an oak; reputation grows like a mushroom.
A single news report can give you a reputation. A life of diligence gives you character.
Reputation is what men will say about you on your tombstone. Character is what the angels will say about you before the throne of God.
