REPUTATION AND CHARACTER
The circumstances amid which you live determine your reputation; the truth you believe determines your character.
Reputaion is what you are supposed to be; character is what you are.
Reputation is the photograph; character is the face.
Reputation comes over one from without; character grows up from within.
Reputation is what you have when you come to a new community; character is what you have when you go away.
Your reputation is learned in an hour; your character does not come to light for a year.
Reputation is made in a moment; character is built in a lifetime.
Reputation 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.
Reputation makes you rich or makes you poor; character makes you happy or makes you miserable.
Reputation is what men say about you on your tombstone;
CHARACTER IS WHAT ANGELS SAY ABOUT YOU BEFORE THE THRONE OF GOD.

William Hersey Davis
This leads me back to the words I was raised by and the words I teach all of my students…Sticks and Stones will break your Bones but Names will Never hurt you. Words can only hurt you if you let them.
