Your reputation defines what others think you are. Protect it.Your character speaks the words upon which your reputation is built.
Both are important.
"Character is the one thing we make in this world and take with us into the next.
the truth you believe determines your character.
Character is the face.
Character grows up from within.
Character is what you have when you go away.
Character is built in a lifetime.
Your character doesn't come to light for a year.
Character grows like the oak.
A life of toil gives you your character.
Character makes you happy or makes you miserable.
Character is what angels say about you before the throne of God."
~ William Hersey Davis
