Actions speak louder than words

Day 020/100

“A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature to stop speech when words become superfluous” Ingrid Bergman

Thought this quote from Bergman is a perfect intro into a discussion of nothing, where by saying nothing, we speak volumes through our ensuing actions. Where a simple kiss can seal an eternal love, an act of kindness resurrects our faith in human kind, a hug when the day has not been all you wished for, or a helping hand when in greatest need without asking. In life it is easy to say we will do or be better at something but it is harder to actually to undertake the task, so maybe tomorrow you will not speak of the task but rather do it. It need not be a big thing, for it is the simplest actions that take on the greatest meaning, even if it is only a kiss.
