I Believe Actions Speak More Than Words

    I Love Words...

    I'm a big fan of words, they can be so beautiful.... When I speak, I try to think, and then very clearly, speak with each word chosen very specifically, so there can be no misinterpretations.  I also love to use words to paint a very clear mental picture.  Words are...

    Sometimes

    I wish everything would happen in a flash In a magic where I could turn all clouds into rainbows And tomorrow would resolve all the weakness The illusions could be thrown to the wind Far away and it would land without fear The words would be everything and much more...

    The Music Inside

    When my son was in cub scouts, I was one of the cub leaders. We did this one exercise one time where we sat the kids in the middle of the gym, then picked three kids and asked them to walk around the circle. Each kid would be walking or marching in their own way/pace. Then we...

    Whispers drift on the wind,shouts are echoed ,but screams are never heard.Say what you think I want to hear again,hand me the gift wrapped in guilt.You never could quite figure out why I like lily's not roses,why I would rather have a bauble from the quarter machine than a fancy...

    Inaction Does The Same If Not More

    Sometimes we pray for something to happen. For someone to love us, for more money to come our way, to close the big deal we have been working on. We think about this always, discuss it - yet nothing happens. I've come to believe that as much as any type of action can speak...

    Squat Or Get Off The Pot

    I hate when people just constantly run their mouth and you can part through their b.s. with a hazmat suit and a bulldozer to see they are not anything more than posturing! If you are in a position to make things happen, DO IT AND STOP RUNNING YOUR MOUTH ABOUT YOUR ACCOLADES...

    Very true. I personally believe

    that your actions should reflect your feelings and beliefs. Your ideas and thoughts really have no value unless you put them into action. As the saying goes: practice what you preach. Now, I know from personal experience that this is easier said than done. But just like all...

    Don't tell me your gonna do something

    when your actions say other wise. Either do it or don't but just don't waste my time telling me lies.

    Well of course it does,

    I believe that actions speak louder

    than words. I know this because in Year Seven I made a friend and we started speaking. He was a very strange and odd child of somewhat complex features. He looked a bit like a monkey. Anyway... in year seven all sorts of rumors become true to the schooling world and no one can...

    Talk Got Too Cheap

    Anymore talk is as cheap as dirt to me and I have no use for dirt. Actions make statements and define moments that sometimes words just cannot. Sometimes taking no action is the most significant act of all.

    Words Are Just Words Actions Speak Louder!

    I have said actions speak lounder than words so many times and I believe it to be so true. You may say something but I don't believe it because of the way you acting. I have seen how people act and without them saying it I just knew by their actions what they wanted to say...

    "I love you" was a bullshit statement from many

    Not Being Much Of A Talker

    Put It Into Action

    It is ever so easy to rant about one's dreams, ambitions, ect. but it takes more than a simple touch of courage to go and fetch after those desires.

    So True

    When I was growing up, I was very trusting of what I was told by people around me. I thought if a person tells me something, it is the truth. And if the truth would come out, I would find excuses for that person - he didn't remember, or he made a mistake, etc. When I grew older...
