Эссе по английскому: Is the saying "Actions speak louder than words" correct?

There are some English sayings about the importance of practical deeds rather than bare words. The general idea of such quotations is that we all need actions. But are actions more important than words in every case?

To start my discussion, I would like to say that concrete actions are certainly more necessary in most circumstances than slogans to say nothing of the unfulfilled promises. To continue, doing something is what makes things happen while sitting on one's hands will never bring your business off. In addition, staying idle means losing your time and letting others overtake and outperform you.

Having said that I cannot but mention that words can also serve as powerful weapons of communication and be useful in many life situations. Take writers, poets, playwrights or actors, for example. Their words serve noble goals of educating or entertaining people and sound very loudly in people's minds. Also, the words of the doctor can have a healing effect and are very necessary for the patients. Moreover, the words of the leader can be important to organise people, to call for active deeds and better achievements.

However helpful words can be, I still believe that words alone are not enough. Let us take the work of writers. They can use the right words only if they have real life experience. Further on, doctors do not treat people without medication and operations. As for the leaders, their role is assessed not just by slogans but by convincing results.

To all intents and purposes, I hold the view that actions are really more essential than words and, putting it differently, "Handsome is as handsome does".

    • Эссе по английскому: Are ecological problems the most serious ones today?

      There is an opinion that ecological problems are the most serious ones today. I agree with this state­ment but I also think that there are other problems that are no less serious than ecological ones. On the one hand, people can't live without water and air, but they contaminate them with dif­ferent poisonous chemicals, dropping litter and emitting gases from their automobiles. Moreover, ozone...

      People have always been curious about miracles and while some think that miracles are everywhere, others hold the view that it is stupid to believe in them. Thinking about miracles, I must say that there are many things that our scientists can't explain, e.g. the endless Universe, and I call such things miracles. Besides, we often learn about phenomena that strike our imagination such as the...

    • Эссе по английскому: Can all the people be happy?

      There are different approaches to the idea of happiness for all. In my opinion, feeling happy means rejoicing that life is going on. But can everybody share this feeling? To begin with, everybody feels happy on achieving major or minor goals in life. But goal achievement does not exhaust the chances of feeling happy. Another reason is the satisfaction of needs to have good food, trendy clothes, and...

      The question of how useful people with disabilities can be for their community and the society as a whole is a really debatable one. Much can be said in support of both "Yes" and "No" answers. Let me weigh up the two alternatives. To begin my reasoning, people with disabilities can be very efficient workers in the fields that do not require the missing physical functions, such as, working at...

    • Эссе по английскому: Do learning results depend on talent or effort?

      It is commonly acknowledged that a talent is a true factor of success while hard work is second in importance. I agree that the genes of a genius are a great gift but hard work is also essential. To share my point, a talent without work is like a tree without soil. Any talented learner usually studies a lot even though others may not notice it. Besides, learners with modest abilities in the...

    • Эссе по английскому: Do you agree that learners themselves should be responsible for their learning results?

      There are too many cases at school proving that learners do not often take responsibility for their results but rely on the teacher instead. Some of them believe that it is the teacher who should take care of the learners' knowledge and do not have a sense of duty themselves. I now want to consider which position has the right to exist. It is a common observation that quite a few school...

    • Эссе по английскому: Do you agree that the most interesting places to visit are always exotic?

      There is an opinion that the most interesting places to visit are exotic sites. I don't fully agree with this statement because not only exotic sites can be interesting to see. On the one hand, quite a few travellers prefer places that strike their imagination more than others. There are plenty of such places in one's native country. Moreover, I think that not everybody knows well the beauties of...
