    Was flipping through the channels last night and stopped on a dateline/ 20/20 or one of those type of shows. It was on the professor who was dying from a terminal disease but still looked and acted completely healthy. He has been giving a number of presentations known as the Last Lecture and has written a book for his children to read once he is gone.

    Anyways he gave a quote to the women in the audience that he had written for his daughter.

    "Ignore everything a man says and pay attention only to what he does." Or something along those lines.

    It just kinda stuck with me and I thought that it was some amazing advice and can easily be applied to everyone. People can manipulate their words so easily to misdirect people as well as words can often be taken the wrong way. And although we can lie with our actions, it tends to happen less often and is much harder to do.
