THOUGHTS ON REPUTATION

Some thoughts on reputation:

“Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.”
—Abraham Lincoln

“The Bible gives us a list of human stories on both sides of the ledger. One list of human stories is used as examples—do what these people did. Another list of human stories is used as warnings—don’t do what these people did. So if your story ever gets in one of these books, make sure they use it as an example, not a warning.”
—Jim Rohn

“Along with success comes a reputation for wisdom.”
—Euripides

“Reputation is character minus what you’ve been caught doing.”
—Michael Lapoce
