Your Reputation…

“Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.”

  1. He’s an intelligent man. I remember reading his quote on a billboard outside of a church when I was about 15. I was doing some self discovery at that age, like most of us were and I distinctly remember taking this quote to heart. I have carried his advice with me all this time and have even shared it with the younger ones in my life. Funny thing is I never knew who said it. I love when connections and re-connections are made; brings purpose and peace to life! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Great quote…and point heard loud and clear!! Thank you for the wisdom imparted and shared…..

    Mr. Wooden is a great man and respected leader who taught more with his actions than words (although his words are expressions of his actions and remembrances of his beliefs) and lessons modeled. Too bad Coach Knight didn’t get to know him a bit–couldn’t resist that ding!!

Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data, ability to repeat discredited memes, and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Also, be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor even implied. Any irrelevancies you can mention will also be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous :)
