Reputation Vs. Character

“Character is fate.” -Heraclitus

“Man looks in the abyss, there’s nothing staring back at him. At that moment, man finds his character. And that is what keeps him out of the abyss.” -Lou Mannheim played by Hal Holbrook in the film, Wall Street

“We kept our rep, bro.” -Sue played by Alex Van Horn in the film, Swingers

Well, who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
I really want to know (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
Tell me who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
Because I really want to know (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?) -“Who Are You?”, song by The Who

Reputation is what people say about you.

Character is who you really are.

So, who are you? Do you truly know?
