A tree is known by its fruit; a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost; he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love. – Saint Basil
People notice what you do.
Sure, you can hurt people with words, or even uplift them for a time with what you say, but your actions are what will impact them.
They will long remember what you did, how you made them feel – not your words, or your promises.
Do the right thing. Do it because other will notice, because they’re watching.
Also do it because you’re watching. You are, in a way, the most important person to do right by. Because when you keep your promises to yourself you align with Truth, creating power and accessing energy.
