An Old Farmer’s Advice:

Your fences need to be horse-high, pig tight, and bull-strong.

Keep skunks and bankers at a distance.

Life is simpler when you plow around your own stump.

A bumblebee is considerably faster than a John Deere tracker.

Words that soam into your ears are whispered…not yelled.

Meanness don’t just happen over night.

Forgive your enemies; it messes up their heads.

Do not corner something that you know is meaner than you.

It don’t take a very big person to carry a grudge.

You cannot unsay a cruel word.

Every path has a few puddles.

When you wallow with pigs, expect to get dirty.

The best sermons are lived not preached.

Most of the stuff people worry about, ain’t gonna happen anyway.

Don’t judge folks by their relatives.

Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

Live a good and honorable life, then when you get older and think back, you’ll enjoy it a second time.

Don’t interfere with something that ain’t bothering you none.

If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop digging.

Sometimes you get, and sometims you get got.

The biggest troublemaker you’ll probably ever have to deal with, watches you from the mirror every morning.

Always drink upstream from the herd.

Good judgment comes from experience, and a lotta that comes from bad judgment.

Lettin’ the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than puttin’ it back in.

If you get to thinking you’re a person of some influence, try ordering somebody else’s dog around.

Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly, and enjoy the ride.

Don’t pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he’ll just shoot you!
