Quotes_Reputation

Here’s a collection of my favorite quotes on reputation.

“A good reputation is more valuable than money.” – Publilius Syrus

“Build a good name. Keep your name clean. Don’t make compromises. Don’t worry about making a bunch of money or being successful. Be concerned with doing good work … and if you can build a good name, eventually that name will be its own currency.” – William Burroughs

“It takes many good deeds to build a good reputation, and only one bad one to lose it.” – Benjamin Franklin

“It takes twenty years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you’ll do things differently.” – Warren Buffett

“A reputation once broken may possibly be repaired, but the world will always keep their eyes on the spot where the crack was.” – Joseph Hall

“You can’t buy a good reputation; you must earn it.” – Harvey Mackay

“The way to gain a good reputation is to endeavor to be what you desire to appear.” – Socrates

“You can’t build a reputation on what you are going to do.” – Henry Ford

“A brand for a company is like a reputation for a person. You earn reputation by trying to do hard things well.” – Jeff Bezos

“Repetition makes reputation.” – Elizabeth Arden

“Concealed talent brings no reputation.” – Desiderius Erasmus

“Associate with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation; for it is better to be alone than in bad company.” – George Washington

“Build your reputation by helping other people build theirs.” – Anthony J. D’Angelo

“Judge a man by the reputation of his enemies” – Arabian Proverb

“Reputation is only a candle, of wavering and uncertain flame, and easily blown out, but it is the light by which the world looks for and finds merit.” – James Russell Lowell

“Many a man’s reputation would not know his character if they met on the street.” – Elbert Hubbard

“Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.” – Abraham Lincoln

“If I take care of my character, my reputation will take care of me.” – Dwight L. Moody

“Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.” – John Wooden

“Reputation is what men and women think of us; character is what God and angels know of us.” – Thomas Paine

“Tell me how a person judges his or her self-esteem, and I will tell you how that person operates at work, in love, in sex, in parenting, in every important aspect of existence – and how high he or she is likely to rise. The reputation you have with yourself – your self-esteem – is the single most important factor for a fulfilling life.” – Nathaniel Branden

“Self esteem is the reputation we acquire with ourselves.” – Nathaniel Branden

Support Friends Of The Earth.

“Friends of the Earth strives for a more healthy and just world. We understand that the challenges facing our planet call for more than half measures, so we push for the reforms that are needed, not merely the ones that are politically easy. Sometimes, this involves speaking uncomfortable truths to power and demanding more than people think is possible. It’s hard work. But the pressures facing our planet and its people are too important for us to compromise.

We are members of Friends of the Earth International, a global network representing more than two million activists in 74 different countries. In the United States, we advocate in the halls of Congress, in state capitals, and with community groups around the country. With offices in Washington, D.C., and Berkeley, CA, and members in all 50 states, we urge policymakers to defend the environment and work towards a healthy environment for all people.”

Upright_425

A little perspective correction can make a big difference in your images. While this is particularly evident in architectural images, it’s true of all images. If you think of it as perspective adjustment or controlled distortion, the visual possibilities open to you will grow dramatically.

Perspective adjustment has never been easier with the new feature Upright, introduced in Lightroom 5 and Photoshop CC. It’s virtually automated. The results are often magic. How Upright knows what it knows and how and when it decides to work are somewhat predictable, but sometimes mysterious. 

Found in the Lens Corrections panel, Upright also uses lens profile metadata and works in conjunction with the Enable Profile Corrections. If you activate Enable Profile Corrections after using Upright, for best results click Reanalyze. You can also use Upright without lens profile metadata or corrections.

Upright has four settings: Level, Vertical, Full and Auto. Level straightens horizontal lines. Vertical straightens vertical lines. Full straightens both horizontal and vertical lines. Auto attempts to find a pleasing balance between both horizontal and vertical distortions, often aligning neither perfectly, but still delivering impressive improvements. Upright offers buttons, not sliders. In other words, it’s all or nothing—there are no in-between settings. Nonetheless, there are many ways to finesse the results you get with Upright, in Lightroom, Adobe Camera Raw and Photoshop …
