QUOTES ON REPUTATION


O! I have lost my reputation! I have lost the immortal part of myself, and what remains is bestial.

WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE, Othello

Good opinion once lost, is lost forever.

JANE AUSTEN, Pride and Prejudice

Why do we daily commit disagreeable and dangerous actions? To save that idol, reputation.

WILLIAM CONGREVE, The Way of the World

Reputation is an idle and most false imposition; oft got without merit and lost without deserving.

WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE, Othello

Good name in man and woman, dear my lord,
Is the immediate jewel of their souls:
Who steals my purse steals trash; 'tis something, nothing;
'Twas mine, 'tis his, and has been slave to thousands;
But he that filches from me my good name
Robs me of that which not enriches him,
And makes me poor indeed.

WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE, Othello
