C.N. Douglas, comp. Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical. 1917.
John B. Gough
A man is what he is, not what men say he is. His character no man can touch. His character is what he is before his God and his Judge; and only himself can damage that. His reputation is what men say he is. That can be damaged; but reputation is for time, character is for eternity.
