As A Man Doeth...

If I have learnt nothing else about men, its that they should be judged by their actions, not words.

As a literary person who is often caught up on how things are expressed, I have to say that was not an easy lesson to learn. I would often hear them speak the things I wanted to hear and ignore the very actions that contradict such oral or written confessions. Not anymore.

Words are meaningless. The more you understand them, the more you realise how inadequate they are.

They cannot be the bonds that bind us in commitment because many times people speak what they hope to be true, not having a clue to what is really true.

Just as you should never judge a book by its cover, you should never judge a man by his felicitations. Judge his actions, especially those repeated because those things done over and over are a better indication of character than anything that could depart from his lips.

Actions speak louder than words.
