BARKING DOGS SELDOM BITE

Dogs are expected to bark and bite. They guard our homes from intruders. Whenever they see a stranger, they bark. There are dogs that bark too much. It is a fact that such dogs rarely bite. They only try to frighten people away by their loud bark. On the contrary, there are dogs that do not bark too much. Around us we find people who talk too much without meaning anything serious. They utter big threats, but are not capable of putting them into practice. Instead, people who remain quiet are to be watched. They believe more in practice than in mere talk. If they mean to do something, they would not waste time on un­necessary threats. They speak after they put into practice whatever they mean.
