If actions speak louder than words, then why do we have to explain ourselves all the time? It's like trying to convince your mother-in-law that your pet rock is indeed a living being that needs daily cuddles. Sure, you can point to its perfectly chiseled features, the way it sits stoically on your desk, but no matter how hard you try, it just won't click with her. It's the same with explaining our actions.

We could have climbed a mountain, swam with sharks, or single-handedly saved a kitten from a burning building, but without words, it's like trying to convince people that your pet rock has a PhD in philosophy. So, let's talk about our experiences, and hope that they are convincing enough to not leave us explaining ourselves all the time.

The origin of the idiom 'actions speak louder than words' is found in literature and is hundreds of years old. This interesting and meaningful statement was first seen in Gersham Bulkeley's book Will and Doom, published in 1692: “Actions are more significant than words.” It has been a very popular idiom ever since.
