OLD COWBOYS ADVICE

Forwarded by AirBurd. No original source given.

Here's some homespun philosophy that makes a lot of sense - obviously learned from first-hand experience:

  • Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a rain dance.
  • Meanness don't jes' happen overnight.
  • Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a lot easier than puttin' it back in.
  • Keep skunks and bankers and lawyers at a distance.
  • Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.
  • Words that soak into your ears are whispered… not yelled.
  • Do not corner something you know is meaner than you.
  • It don't take a very big person to carry a grudge.
  • You can’t un-say a cruel word.
  • Every path has a few puddles.
  • When you wallow with pigs, expect to get dirty.
  • Don't judge folks by their relatives.
  • The best sermons are lived, not preached.
  • Don't interfere with somethin' that ain't botherin' you none.
  • 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 may ever deal with, watches you from your mirror.
