"It's impossible to speak what it is not noble to do"

- Sophocles

About this Quote

Sophocles, the famous Greek playwright, communicated in this quote that our words and actions must align with each other. One can not speak of doing something noble and then act otherwise. Our behaviour reflects our personality, and it is essential to be genuine and sincere in both our words and deeds. It is not practically the image we project to others, however it likewise shows our own values and principles. To be noble, we should lead by example and let our actions speak for us. On the other hand, deceiving words and deceitful actions just bring pity and taint our credibility. Sophocles' words remind us to be true to ourselves and live a life of nobility in all aspects.
