An Old Farmer's Advice

Original Article

I saw this on the Van Dwellers group. 
I think I've seen it before, somewhere else. 
Anyway, it's a worthwhile read.
* Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight, 
and bull-strong.

* Keep skunks and bankers and lawyers 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 
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.
