    1. Pale met la or pale mete la is an expression that means 'all talk and no action'
      An example on how to use it is:
      Gouvènman an p ap regle anyen pou nou, se pale met la sèlman l ap fè.
      The government is not helping us at all, they're all talk and no action.

    2. So here's the literal translation of the above expression:
      Actions speak louder than words.
      Pale met la pa anyen, se aksyon ki konte
      Literally: All talk and no action is nothing, it's actions that count
