Actions may speak louder than words, but words speak STRONGER than actions.
A wise man once told me, that whoever is in an altercation, and the other person speaks louder than you do, you have won the fight. Once a person begins to yell, he has lost his mind, and his intelligence.
Does loudness matter? I understand it's an idiom, but let's think of the statement LITERALLY. Does loudness win a fight? Are fights determined by whoever is the loudest? No. Just like people say, "I'm so tired, it's not even funny", when was it funny in the first place? When people tell you that actions speak louder than words, ask them, "When does loudness determine a winner in a fight?"
It's true. The quietest one is the winner, because he isn't tense, and in the end, he always gets it his way. This is because knowledge talks. But wisdom? Wisdom listens.
The strength of ones words aren't dependent on sound, but dependent on three things:
The one who punches, is the one who gives up. The one who uses vocabulary, proves a point. Our society, our youth needs to understand this fact. It isn't only about ending violence - we've heard that too much. It's about something bigger. It's about being wise, and intelligent. If we fought with words and wisdom, we will be helping one another, and coming to a solution.
What does punching someone in the face prove? What does "jumping" someone prove?
The answer is not because: "Actions speak louder than words".
There is no answer, because it doesn't prove ANYTHING. Words prove solutions.
You might be asking, "What about good actions?". Good actions ARE WORDS. Think about it. Everything relies on WORDS. Actually, EVERYTHING IS A WORD!
Understand, understand, understand. Words.
-That's the TFAT.
