  4. 4. Proverbs 22:1 A good name (literally "character") is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold. 2 Peter 1:5 And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue (moral excellence or character)
  5. 5. • Reputation is what you are supposed to be; Character is what you are. • Reputation is made in a moment; Character is built in a lifetime. • Your reputation is learned in an hour; your character does not come to light for a year. • A single newspaper report gives your reputation; a life of toil gives you your character.
