The Wisdom of Will Rogers

Don't squat with your spurs on.

Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes
from bad judgment.

Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier 'n puttin'
it back in.

If you're ridin' ahead of the herd, take a look back every now
and then to make sure it's still there.

If you get to thinkin' you're a person of some influence, try
orderin' somebody else's dog around.

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.

Never kick a cow chip on a hot day.

There's two theories to arguin' with a woman.
Neither one works.

If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop

Never slap a man who's chewin' tobacco.

It don't take a genius to spot a goat in a flock of sheep.

Always drink upstream from the herd.

When you give a lesson in meanness to a critter or a person,
don't be surprised if they learn their lesson.

When you're throwin' your weight around, be ready to have it
thrown around by somebody else.

The quickest way to double your money is to fold it over and put
it back in your pocket.

Never miss a good chance to shut up.

There are three kinds of men. The one who learns by reading.
The few who learn by observation. The rest of them have to pee
on the electric fence for themselves

Thanks for the words of wisdom. If you ever get the chance, go to the Will Rogers museum in Claremore, Oklahoma. You can spend a day there and not see everything.
