Your Character And Your Reputation.

Your character defines who you are. Build it.
Your reputation defines what others think you are. Protect it.
Your character speaks the words upon which your reputation is built.
Both are important. 
For if your character speaks well, your reputation will reflect it. 

Also, hasn't it been said that "a good name is better than riches".And, I'll leave you with these words: 

"Character is the one thing we make in this world 
and take with us into the next.
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;
Character 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.

Reputation is made in a moment;
Character is built in a lifetime.

Your reputation is learned in an hour;
Your character doesn't come to light for a year.

Reputation grows like a mushroom;
Character grows like the oak.

A single newspaper report gives you 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."
~ William Hersey Davis
