"Words, Words, Words. I'm so sick of words" {My Fair Lady}

I was reading some translation of an old Chinese Zen {Ch'an} patriach last night and wondered how much they sat and what they had to say about sitting.

What get's captured of the patriarchs, and what most people focus on is the words of buddhism. But buddhism, I think, is not in words. It's in action, and mostly in sitting. Wouldn't it have been great if every patriarch/matriarch left a record of their sitting also!
