To yourself, respect.

" There are many ships of all sizes that sail the endless oceans of the mind, body, heart and soul. Surrounded by countless smaller vessels are the ships Religion, Marriage, Health and Love. On the horizon, they see the approach of a ship that dwarfs all others. She is Perception. Some cheer her arrival while others scatter and sail for shallow waters and the shore. Those waiting, flock to her. Like a mothering swan, she gathers them up, one by one, and secures them in place with Peace, Happiness, War, Justice and the others. As she quietly moves away towards her next port of call, the wind opens her banner for all to see but few to understand. Those who fled along the shore fear her not for her immense size or wake but the image on the dreaded banner itself. That of a two edged sword."

" There are two principles in life. First: to defend ourselves by the tool "SPEECH" without concentrating on any action plan. The Second: to keep our mouth shut and work with the primitive tool "ACTION PLAN". The First principle is handy and just forms a part of Life. The Second one is the way of Life that will lead us to the desired position by a much simpler route."

Action speaks more than words in a different way.
