A traveller was boasting about all the wonderful places he had been to and all the wonderful things he had seen and all the clever things he had done. The people listening to him had grown bored, and besides, no one really believed him.
“ Once,
“ said the traveller loudly,
“ when I was in Rodes I entered a jumping competition. As a matter of fact, I jumped twice as far as anyone has ever jumped before! If you don‘t believe me, go to Rodes and ask someone there!

“If you can really jump that far
“ said one of his audience, who had not believed one word the traveller said
“ There is no need to go to Rodes to prove it. You could do something else.“

“What do you mean, asked the traveller.

“Well,
“ said the man,
“you can jump here and prove it to us now.
“ At that, the traveller‘s face became very red with shame and he turned and went to hide away.
Deeds speak louder than words.
