An Old Farmer's Advice:

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

 * Keep skunks and bankers and lawyers at a distance.

 * Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.

 * A bumble bee is considerably faster than a John Deere tractor.

 * Words that soak into your ears are whispered...not yelled.

 * Meanness don't jes' happen overnight.

 * 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 never gonna happen anyway.

 * Don't judge folks by their relatives.

 * Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

 * Live a good, honorable life. Then when you get
 older and think back, you'll enjoy it a second time.

 * Don't interfere with somethin' that ain't botherin' you none.

 * Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a rain dance.

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

 * Sometimes you get, and sometimes you get got.

 * The biggest troublemaker you'll probably ever have to deal with,
watches you from the mirror every mornin'.

 * 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 thinkin' you're a person of some influence,
 try orderin' somebody else's dog around.

 * Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply.
 Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God.
