William Hersy Davis

“The circumstances amid which you live determine your reputation… the truth you believe determines your character

Reputation is what you are supposed to be; character is what you are

Reputation is the photograph; characater 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 made in a moment; your character is built in a lifetime

Your reputation is learned in an hour; your character does not come to light for a year

Reputation grows like a mushroom; character lasts like eternity

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 tombston; character is what the angels say about you before the throne of God”
