English term or phrase: We"re men of action. Lies do not become us.
It"s a quote for the film the Princess Bride. As it has never been released in my country, could you tell me what is it supposed to mean, and how could it be reworded? Thank you Reference http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Princess_Bride_(film) http://www.google.com/search?num=100&hl=en&safe=off&client=o...
