There is no say. There is only do.

不言実行

Literally: [negative] – say – reality/truth – act/conduct/journey/go

Alternately: Don’t talk; do. Action over words. Quiet, determined action.

About Confanity

I love the written word more than anything else I've had the chance to work with. I'm back in the States from Japan for grad school, but still studying Japanese with the hope of becoming a translator -- or writer, or even teacher -- as long as it's something language-related.
