A loving silence often has far more power to heal and to connect than the most well-intentioned words.

Quiet improvement

Announcing that you are going to improve your behavior is a poor substitute for actual improvement. Skip that needless step, and go straight to the work of improving the way you act.

Quiet improvement is powerful, authentic improvement. It is focused not merely on the image of how you look but on the substance of how you are.

Making a promise to improve might get you off the hook for a moment. But then that moment is over, and you’ve made no real progress.

When you’re truly committed to making an improvement, just go ahead and do it. Get your ego out of the way, and you can get real work done.

Let your actions do the talking. Let your results do the talking.

Stop proclaiming how you’re going to be. And start quietly being the best of how you intend to be.

— Ralph Marston
