Wisdom From Will Rogers

 I so much love the writings of Will Rogers! In his day he was on the scene of natural disasters before the Red Cross. His radio program reached so many Americans! I have visited the Will Rogers Museum in Oklahoma Will Rogers Museum. I would strongly suggest a visit, a look back on the history of our Country. I am so very sorry that many Americans do not know of him and the legacy he left behind. My friend Judy Nottingham shared this posting on her Facebook. I also took a picture of the front cover of a great book I suggest you read.
How about a little Will Rogers wisdom. All us folks have probably heard of the famous Will Rogers, the greatest political country/cowboy sage this country has ever known. Mr. Rogers died in a plane crash in 1935, but his wisdom remains relevant even unto this day. So without further ado…
First and foremost, “”Never squat with your spurs on!”
Seven general rules for making your way through life:
1. Never slap a man who’s chewing tobacco.
2. Never kick a cow chip on a hot day.
3. Never miss a good chance to shut up.
4. If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.
5. The quickest way to double your money is to fold it and put it back into your pocket.
6. Good judgment comes from experience and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.
7. If you’re ridin’ ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then to make sure it’s still there.
Ten rules on growing older:
1. Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.
2. The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.
3. 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.
4. When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to youth, think of Algebra.
5. You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks.
6. I don’t know how I got over the hill without getting to the top.
7. One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that it’s such a nice change from being young.
8. One must wait until evening to see how splendid the day has been.
9. Being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable and relaxed.
10. And, finally – If you don’t learn to laugh at trouble, you won’t have anything to laugh at when you’re old.
And finally, a tale with a moral…
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.
