This particular idiom I believe is older than dirt.
Not because it actually is but that it had been used so many times that if I never hear it again it will be too soon !!!
And to those who don’t understand the contrast of the word Action here and think its related to Drinking action …..
let’s just right now take a step back because this is beyond you…like waaaaayyyy beyond.
The Idiom itself is a contradiction to the world today because…..
- CONTRADICTION NO. 1 : most people living on earth today are blind
- CONTRADICTION NO. 2 : most people in this world are good actors
We learn to lie about things at a small age despite how much you would want to deny it. We learn to fake emotions and our actions pretty quickly and are able to perfect that art over a period of time. Now I am not saying that words are better in this scenario but that the actions are no better than the words here.
- CONTRADICTION NO. 3 : most people on this earth have a life
- CONTRADICTION NO. 4 : not all actions have the ability of speech
Some actions themselves contradict each other. And also sometimes we just do what we have to do , no explanations.
Words are powerful.
Words are necessary.
Now I am not saying that actions don’t speak but that they could only be understood by those who actually speak that language.
