Character is like the tree; reputation its shadow – Abraham Lincoln


While listening to a radio talk show, I once heard the host repeat something I’d never heard before that Abraham Lincoln said.

Lincoln was speaking about character and reputation and the difference.

Lincoln said that character is like the tree; reputation its shadow.

Many of us have chased after reputation or while concerned about reputation, have forgotten to grow a really strong, beautiful, powerful, deeply-rooted tree.

Send your roots down deep.  Let the green growing edges of you come forth; Everything else will take care of itself.

Here’s To Your Character,

Mary Manin Morrissey
