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.

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

* 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.

* The best sermons are lived, not preached.

* Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

* Don't interfere with somethin' that ain't botherin' you.

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

* Always drink upstream from the herd.

* 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.

* Don't back up to the wagon if you can't pull the load. ( by Quincy)

* Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.

Makes me smile.
The kind of simple advice we can all live by.
Maybe I could add a line?
"Don't back up to the wagon if you can't pull the load."
