A Farmer's Wisdom

Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.

A bumble bee is considerably faster than a tractor.

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

Meanness don't just happen overnight.

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

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

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

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.

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 somethin' that ain't bothering you none.

Timin' 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.

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

Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly,
