An Old Farmer's Advice!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Thought everyone might enjoy these words of wisdom...My particular favorite is the one that says Do not corner something that you know is meaner then you......excellent words to live by I think

An old farmer's advice

* Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.
* Words that soak into your ears are whispered...not yelled.
* Meanness don't jes' happen overnight.
* 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.
* Most of the stuff people worry about ain't never gonna happen anyway.
* Don't judge folks by their relatives.
* Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.
* Live a good, 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 botherin' you none.
* Timing 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.
* Good judgment comes from experience, and a lotta that comes from bad judgment.
* 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.
* Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.

Leave the rest to God.

I've known some wise old guys in my day. Here's a few things they've taught me.

-If you see a piece of rope lying on the ground, pick it up. If you don't, you'll need it before the sun goes down.

-If you have to wash your hands BEFORE you go to the bathroom, whatever you're doing is not an intellectual pursuit.

And a modification of one of the ones above:

-Don't judge a person by their relatives, judge them by their friends. They didn't choose their relatives, but they did choose their friends.
