Remembering Will Rogers

May 1, 2009 at 10:19 am (News & Politics)

Will Rogers, who died in a plane crash with Wylie Post in 1935, was probably the greatest political sage this country has ever known.

Enjoy the following:

1.  Never slap a man who’s chewing tobacco.

2.  Never kick a cow chip on a hot day.

3.  There are 2 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 in 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.


First ~ Eventually you will reach a point

when you stop lying about your age

and start bragging about it.

Second ~ The older we get, the fewer things

seem worth waiting in line for.

Third ~ 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.

Fourth ~ When you are dissatisfied

and would like to go back to youth,

think of Algebra.

Fifth ~ You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks.

Sixth ~ I don’t know how I got over the hill

without getting to the top.

Seventh ~ One of the many things

no one tells you about aging

is that it is such a nice change

from being young.

Eighth ~ One must wait until evening

to see how splendid

the day has been.

Ninth ~ Being young is beautiful,

but being old is comfortable.

Tenth ~ 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.
