Reputation Quotations

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

It takes many good deeds to build a good reputation, and only one bad one to lose it.
Benjamin Franklin

Associate with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation; for it is better to be alone than in bad company.
George Washington

The way to gain a good reputation is to endeavor to be what you desire to appear.

Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
