Non mihi sapit qui sermone sed qui factis sapit.
(Robert Burton, 1577-1640, English writer/author of The Anatomy of Melancholy)

To me, one is not wise by his/her speech, but one is wise by his/her actions.

(pron = nohn MEE-hee SAH-pit kwee sehr-MOH-nay sehd kwee FAHK-tees SAH-pit).

Comment: It's probably some sort of hypocrisy to write about this particular
proverb--more words, trying to be wise, about a wisdom that is best demonstated
by how we act today.

So, let's cut to the chase: what would your own wisdom LOOK like today?
