In a world of constant, propaganda, and deceit, what we do matters more than our intentions.

What we actually do tells people about us, not what we keep saying or what we intend to do.

Love is based on action, not what you say.

Saying that you love someone is of no use if the corresponding care and treatment is not given to your loved ones.

Your own beliefs matter, not borrowed beliefs of what your parents or society taught you.
