Nancy Lozano, Mexico, Writing III

In 1856, Abraham Lincoln first used the English expression “actions speak louder than words.” Abraham Lincoln used this expression many years ago, and we still use it in our daily lives. Every year we make a list with different purposes or goals, but at the end of the year we know they were only promises. For example, we want to change our lifestyle with exercising and eating healthier. Other resolutions would be to learn a new language, quit smoking, or get to know new places.

The list could be endless, but if we do not do enough to make our goals a reality, they will only be words that disappear in the wind. The actions speak for themselves. Therefore, at the end of the day we will be judged by what we do and not by what we say. We should do more and say less.
