务言而缓行

务言而缓行,虽辩必不听。

《墨子·修身》

One who talks a lot but takes actions slowly will not be listened to even if he is right.

– Self-cultivation, Mozi. Mozi

  1. This is a beautiful quote, and very true. People trust you for not only your words but your actions — how you keep those words and promises, and how you act to change the world. Thank you for this. Welcome to the Livefyre community, and please feel free to let us know if you have any questions or feedback for us!

  2. @annedreshfield It’s my pleasure to share my knowledge on Mohism. And that’s a pleasant surprise to see you guys from Livefyre actually visit users’ blogs to gather feedback. That’s really great! =)
