Do what I say, say what I do

An elephant’s faithful, one hundred percent!


Literally: speak – go/act – one – do

Alternately: One’s words and actions are in accord. Doing what one says. Walking the walk as well as talking the talk. The opposite of hypocrisy.


Another moral of the story is, think about whether you’re truly willing to see something through before you promise to do it.

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.
