<p>Great topic! As always :)</p>
<p>My tagline is "Actions speak louder than words". It's simple and to the point. And it's a phrase, of which I first heard many many years ago, that struck a deep chord in me. </p>
<p>People tend to say this or that and expect people simply take them for their word. Taking someone at their word isn't a negative thing to do. But not LIVING your word or trying to live it… well then that's just hypocrisy. </p>
<p>So, for myself, I believe it very important to not just SAY what I think but to DO what I say. This ideology works in every single situation in life. In every single relationship we have. And I "check" myself often to ensure that I am doing what I say. Or at least trying to. It's about honesty. About being true to who you are and to anyone you encounter. </p>
<p>And on the flipside… if you ever want to know if someone is who they say they are, marry their words to their actions and evaluate the result. I believe this should be a standard part of everyone's vetting process. </p>

<p>It’s fascinating, the little things that we display to show the world in subtle ways, who we are. <br />Something I’ve always been curious about since being here… the quote or saying or passage you chose as your tagline… if you care to share, why did you choose it? If you’re willing to elaborate further, what does it mean to you? What do you hope it says about you to others?</p>
