Sample Sentences & Example Usage

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Reputation and Character are not one and the same thing. They are radically different. Reputation is what others think of you, while Character is what God knows about you. People can manipulate the thinking of others, but they cannot hide or change the truth that is known to God, the Supreme Power. Whenever you come across a dilemma, and you have to make a choice from various options, you must think of the Truth first before thinking about the Reputation. Truth will always build your Character, set you free, and bring you closer to Supreme Power.
