Quote: William Hershey Davis



• "Reputation is what you are supposed to be;

• Character is what you are.


• Reputation is what you have when you come to a new community;

• Character is what you have when you go away.


• Reputation is made in a moment;

• Character is built in a lifetime.


• Reputation grows like a mushroom;

• Character grows like an oak.


• Your reputation is learned in an hour;

• Your character is does not come to light for a year.


• A single newspaper report gives 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.


• Your character is what God knows you to be.

• Your reputation is what men think you are."
