Timely Advice from Will Rogers

.

 
 
I sure wish Will Rogers, the world-famous, widely popular American humorist of the vaudeville stage, silent and sound films, and most notably his homespun philosophy on behalf of Everyman, was still around. I would surely vote for him this November for President. Here are some of his down-to-earth, no-nonsense sayings to live by.....
 
1. Never slap a man who's chewing tobacco.

2.
Never kick a cow chip on a hot day.

3.
There are two theories to arguing with a woman. Neither works.

4.
Never miss a good chance to shut up.

5.
Always drink upstream from the herd.

6.
If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.

7.
The quickest way to double your money is to fold it and put it back into your pocket.

8.
There are three kinds of men:
the ones that learn by reading. The few who learn by observation. The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence and find out for themselves.

9.
Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.

10.
If you're riding' ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then to make sure it's still there.

11.
Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier'n puttin' it back.

12.
After eating an entire bull, a mountain lion felt so good he started roaring. He kept it up until a hunter came along and shot him.
The moral
: When you're full of bull, keep your mouth shut.  (This one especially applies to many of the politicians in my opinion!)
 
 
Hope you enjoyed some sound advice from a really intelligent man, who died too young (age 56) in a plane crash on August 15, 1935.
