Character is more important than reputation

Reputation is what people think you are.

Character is what you really are.

Don’t stress about reputation. It doesn’t matter.

The only thing that matters is your character.

Character is a function of integrity.

Integrity is a function of values.

Values are a function of behavior.

The more consistent your behavior, the more solid your character.

Words don’t matter. Reputation doesn’t matter.

Only character matters.
