Will Rogers

Will Rogers

Will Rogers was quite the cowboy, with all the wisdom of simple, honest folk.
He died in a 1935 plane crash in Alaska with his best friend

Wylie Post.
Rogers was probably the greatest political sage this country ever has known.
His words still ring with common sense today.
Simple but Brilliant and full of truths!
1. Never slap a man who's chewing tobacco.
2. Never kick a cow chip on a hot day.
3. There are two theories to arguing with a woman.
Neither works.
4. Never miss a good chance to shut up.
5. Always drink upstream from the herd.
6. If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.
7. The quickest way to double your money is to fold it and
put it back into your pocket.
8. There are three kinds of men: The ones that learn by reading.
The few who learn by observation.
The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence and
find out for themselves.
9. Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from
bad judgment.
10. If you're riding' ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then to
make sure it's still there.
11. Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier'n puttin' it back.
12. After eating an entire bull, a mountain lion felt so good he started roaring.
He kept it up until a hunter came along and shot him.
The moral:
When you're full of bull, keep your mouth shut.
~ Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and
start bragging about it.
~ The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.
~ Some people try to turn back their odometers.
Not me; I want people to know 'why' I look this way.
I've traveled a long way, and some of the roads weren't paved.
~ When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to youth,
think of Algebra.
~ You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks.
~ I don't know how I got over the hill without getting to the top.
~ One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that
it is such a nice change from being young.
~ One must wait until evening to see how splendid
the day has been.
~ Being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable.
~ Long ago, when men cursed and beat the ground with sticks, it was called witchcraft.
Today it's called golf.
And, finally
~ If you don't learn to laugh at trouble, you won't have anything to laugh at
when you are old.
