Reputation and Character - Anonymous

The circumstances amid which you live determine your reputation; the truth you believe determines your character.

tReputation is what you are supposed to be; character is what you are.

tReputation is the photograph; character is the face.

tReputation comes over one from within; character grows up from within.

tReputation is what you have when you come to a new community; character is what you have when you go away.

tReputation is learned in an hour; character does not come to light for a year.

tReputation is made in a moment; character is built in a lifetime.

tReputation grows like a mushroom; character grows like the oak. A single newspaper report gives you your reputation; a life of toil gives you your character.

tReputation makes you rich or makes you poor; character makes you happy or makes you miserable.

tReputation is what men say about you on your tombstone; character is what angels say about you before the throne of God.
