Actions speak louder than words.
April 16, 2010 7:23pm CST
When our actions are representative of our feelings, our affection for our fellow humans will always be evident in our behavior. Words can be misinterpreted and often carry little weight because of their fleeting nature. Actions inspired by love and goodwill, on the other hand, will almost always be seen for the heartfelt and sincere gifts they are. We won't have to articulate our affection because everything we do will in some way make the people in our life feel appreciated. Do you agree? Do actions really speak louder than words?

i am not one who scream and shout at the slightest mistake my kids do. so i use a lot of gestures especially with my eyes. by staring hard they know i'm not happy with what they have done or are doing. on the other hand a little pat on the back, a kiss on their foreheads, a word of thank you or i miss you or i love you actually make our days. i'm using the same technique at work without using a lot of energy and having to end up in a lot of frustration. obviously i do give claps, applauses and mention names where credit is due. and i often get comments of how cool i handle some hot situations. i always tell myself to have a cool head when everything else is hot. and yes, actions really speak louder than words...

I believe so, action speaks louder than voice. As when you promised something it's done by words. When you fulfill that promise, that's action. Now if you don't keep your promise as if words never speak then. Others keep on talking thus less work while some are just working without saying a word.

I totally agree action speak louder than word. My family is the kind of traditional family who will never show their affection by word. I never my dad says I love you to mom, but I can see that he love my mom by her action. He will taking care of my mom when she sick and support her in his own way.

i perfectly agree with what you said, that action speaks louder than words. words at times are said to assure someone but if your actions speaks otherwise and that person doesn't feel what you have said then what would be the use and it becomes useless. there are people who are not good with words but they can show what they felt better on how they act or what they do.

yes, i totally agree that actions really do speak louder than words, because i believe that mostly of what we feel would really show in our actions than in words. We can say all the sweet words even if we don't feel it, but it's hard to show it if we really don't feel it in our hearts.

I will believe more basing on actions and not on words, most especially those spoken sweetly. It does make me feel good when somebody tells me positive things, but when actions tends not to complement such words, wouldn't it be so frustrating to feel that i was just being led on? I put more weight on actions. You don't have to say you love me..as a song goes..just be close at hand. And you don't have to say how much you despise me, i will feel it thank you. (^_^)

I agree. Because you can randomly say I love you to one person and do not really mean it without showing that affection to them. A kiss can just mean a kiss to one person, but to someone else it can mean hello or I love you. Yes our actions do represent our feelings. Actions are how we express ourselves using gestures. Doing something simple for one person can mean a whole lot to them than you think. Talking to someone on computer, text messaging and the other various uses of technology is not the same as speaking to them in person where you get that visual and tangible experience when they're with you. Like a hug, a high five, things people will do for long lasting memories to be cherished and shared. In the primitive age people did not speak regular language instead they would make strange noises that only some of the people of their tribe would understand. But some would not, so they would have a hard time communicating, but thanks to actions - it makes it more easier for them to understand rather than their misinterpreted ooga ooga unga ungas... XD So in conclusion, actions do speak louder than words.

Yes, usually people want to see us doing things instead of talking so much . People tend to respect us when they can see more actions than words. Stating our opinion is fine ,but we should set an example by doing what we preach.

I totally agree with you that action speaks louder than words. Sometimes there are words that we speak that we really do not mean. Sometimes we say of words that are all lies. But our actions as well as gestures will surely say what we want most especially when we do it for love and affection.
