A good reputation is more valuable than money.
      - Syrus (Publilius Syrus), Maxims

It matters not what you are thought to be, but what you are.
      - Syrus (Publilius Syrus), Maxims

An eminent reputation is as dangerous as a bad one.
      - Tacitus (Caius Cornelius Tacitus)

The reputation of a man is like his shadow,--gigantic when "it precedes him, and pygmy in its proportions when it follows.
      - Charles Maurice de Talleyrand-Perigord

A fair reputation is a plant, delicate in its nature, and by no means rapid in its growth. It will not shoot up in a night like the gourd of the prophet; but, like that gourd, it may perish in a night.
      - Jeremy Taylor

I would rather make my name than inherit it.
      - William Makepeace Thackeray

If a man were only to deal in the world for a day, and should never have occasion to converse more with mankind, never more need their good opinion or good word, it were then no great matter (speaking as to the concernments of this world), if a man spent his reputation all at once, and ventured it at one throw; but if he be to continue in the world, and would have the advantage of conversation while he is in it, let him make use of truth and sincerity in all his words and actions; for nothing but this will last and hold out to the end.
      - John Tillotson

In all the affairs of this world, so much reputation is in reality so much power.
      - John Tillotson

The tenure of a literary reputation is the most uncertain and fluctuating of all.
      - Charles Dudley Warner

Associate with men of good quality, if you esteem your own reputation; for it is better to be alone than in bad company.
      - George Washington

Some men's reputation seems like seed-wheat, which thrives best when brought from a distance.
      - Archbishop Richard Whately
