Cowboy's advice


* Most of the stuff people worry about ain't never gonna happen anyway.

* Life ain't about how fast you run, or how high you climb, but how well
you bounce.

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

* Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.

* A good time to keep your mouth shut is when you're in deep water.

* Forgive your enemies. It messes up their heads.

* Don't sell your mule to buy a plow.

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

* Scratch a dog and you'll find a permanent job.

* Do not corner something you know is meaner than you.

* You cannot unsay a cruel word.

* Money will buy a fine dog, but only kindness will make him wag his tail.

* Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

* Don't interfere with somethin' that ain't botherin' you none.

* Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a rain dance.

* The easiest way to eat crow is while it's still warm. The colder it
gets, the harder it is to swaller.

* Folks that complain they don't get what they deserve, don't know how
fortunate they are.

* If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop diggin'.

* The biggest troublemaker you'll probably ever have to deal with looks
at you in the mirror every mornin'.

* Don't worry about bitin' off more 'n you can chew; your mouth is
probably a whole lot bigger'n you think.

* Good judgment comes from experience, and a lotta that comes from bad

* Remember: Don't squat with your spurs on.

* Live a good, honorable life. Then when you get older and think back,
you'll enjoy it a second time.

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

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

* The best sermons are lived, not preached.

* Keep skunks and politicians and lawyers at a distance.

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

* If it don't seem like it's worth the effort, it probably ain't.

* It's better to be a has-been than a never-was.

* Meanness don't jest happen overnight.
