Zen Talk: Dogs and Men Running Their Mouths

A dog is not considered a good dog because he is a good barker. A man is not considered a good man because he is a good talker.

This quote kind of makes me think that I should keep my mouth shut about it…..

…..but where would be the fun in that.

The advice is to be heeded, however. Though many judge us by our ability to converse, talking does not make us good people. Sometimes less is more. Sometimes none is the most.

Good people are judged by their actions and not by their words, though to be fair, words can inspire amazing action in others. For all the good talking you may do, if you want to be judged well, make sure that each of those words is equaled by an action.
