Advice From A Farmer

Advice From a Farmer

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 stumps.

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

Words that soak into your ears are whispered...not yelled.

Meanness doesn’t just happen overnight.

Forgive your enemies; it messes up their heads.

Don’t corner something that you know is meaner than you.

It doesn't take a very big person to carry a grudge.

You can't 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 isn’t ever 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 something that isn’t bothering you.

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 digging.

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 morning.

Always drink upstream from the herd.

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

Letting the cat out of the bag is a whole lot easier than putting it back in.

If you think you're a person of some influence,
 try ordering somebody else's dog around.

Don't pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he'll just kill you.

Live simply ~ love generously ~ care deeply ~ speak kindly ~ leave the rest to God.

And remember:
