Actions Speak Louder Than Words

Nowadays, as the society we live in gets more and more complicated, human interactions seem to have set off to a whole new level. Suddenly, diplomacy has taken the world by storm, thus becoming a must in every successful action of our day-to-day life. Nevertheless, since words may sometimes be misleading, it is our actions that end up betraying our true nature.

In my opinion, speech can be considered to be one of the oldest, yet the most important art that mankind has created. Persuasion is not just a form of transmitting a message, but also a carefully crafted instrument we constantly try to learn how to master. Eventually, words are nothing more than a candle in the wind. On the other hand, our actions, the ones that truly define who we are, are more likely to be those that would endure through the test of time.

Moreover, were we to take the example of the chronicles, it is great deeds that made great rulers part of the universal history and not what they may have said. Of course, there are several notable exceptions, like Winston Churchill or King Louis the Fourteenth of France who is greatly known for having said “I am the state”. Nevertheless, their quotes are in fact associated with their actions, therefore in the end, the actions regain their supremacy.

To sum up, I am a firm believer that a good deed is worth more than a thousand nice words. Consequently, there can be no doubt as to whether words can be considered to be more important than actions. Nonetheless, some might state that there are times in our lives when a word may be worth more than anything in the world. I could not disagree with this statement. However, let as take comforting someone for example. Undoubtedly, kind words are be used, yet the purpose of their usage clearly defines the action of comforting a person in need. All in all, I reckon that one simply cannot deny that actions speak louder than words
