Who you are is more important than what you say.
Actions speak louder than words, so the cliche goes. Think about it this way, in the context of me talking to my wife:
There she is, walking with me, waiting for me to lead her to where she should go,
Yet I endlessly conversate in the opposite direction of my feet’s intention
She, walking with me, waiting for me to lead her to where she should go,
Follows my footsteps and listens to my voice, and while she follows my path and choice
Wonders what words mean when they are spent, when they can’t describe how we’ve gotten where we went.
