Acta non verba

I love this phrase. Keep it in mind always.

Latin for “Deeds, not words”.

Our society lives in a world of too many words, not enough action. And what action there is does rarely results in deeds. Miles Franklin has a good take on this here.

A close second for me is “Vires et honestas”. Strength and Honor. Both are needed for men. Don’t claim honor when you lack strength. Each beget the other. 

A great third is “Do it. Do it now”.
