OLD COWBOY’S 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.
