Promise Nothing.

“Words can be twisted into any shape. Promises can be made to lull the heart and seduce the soul. In the final analysis, words mean nothing. They are labels we give things in an effort to wrap our puny little brains around their underlying natures, when ninety-nine percent of the time the totality of the reality is an entirely different beast. The wisest man is the silent one. Examine his actions. Judge him by them.” – Karen Marie Moning.

So be wise, be slow to promise anything,

the wise one promises what can be fulfilled;

though words are nothing

yet, words are the heaviest burden;

so for the wise one, silence is golden,

it’s through action that the wise one speaks plenty.
