    Anybody can say one thing and do the other, whether they say a good thing then do a bad thing, or say a bad thing and do a good thing. Which one defines character more?

    As we learned as children and then throughout our adult lives,
    TALK THE TALK, and WALK THE TALK. No other option!

    But when sizing up someone else, ALWAYS evaluate their actions for their actions will speak volumes more than their words.

    I guess if you're style is to use overused expressions in your writing. I was taught otherwise.

    And you knew what I meant so what was your intend other than to be a jackass?
