: : You know that movie about that slow guy, Forest Gump? Whenever someone called him stupid, he'd say "Stupid is as Stupid Does." Well, I must be really slow because I don't understand that at all. Can someone tell me?

: You are not (always) what you are labeled. You prove what you are by your actions.

My mama always said, "Pretty is as pretty does." Meaning one is only attractive if one has an attractive manner. Mrs. Gump was trying to tell her son that the boys who acted mean to him were really the stupid ones.
