You are what you do

“I have long since come to believe that people never mean half of what they say, and that it is best to disregard their talk and judge only their actions.” Dorothy Day

What this quote means is that most people are all talk, and most of what they say has no value. To truly know a person, judge them by what they do, not by what they say.

So when someone tells you about themselves, watch what they do to see how much of what they said is true.
