    Advice from an old farmer

    An Old Farmer's Advice:

    * Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight
    And bull-strong.

    *Keep skunks and bankers at a
    Distance.

    *Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.

    * A bumble bee is considerably faster than a
    John Deere tractor.

    * 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.

    * 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 going to 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 Bothering 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.
