Life from the seat of a tractor. An old Farmer's Words of Wisdom we could all live by.

“Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight  and bull-strong.”  

“Keep skunks and bankers at a  distance.” 

“Life is simpler when you plough around the  stump.” 

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

“Words that soak into your ears are  whispered…....not yelled.” 

“Meanness don't just happen  overnight.” 

“Forgive your enemies; it messes up their  heads.” 

“Do not corner something that you know is meaner than  you.” 

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

“You cannot 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, ain't never gonna  happen anyway.”  

“Don't judge folks by their  relatives."  

“Remember that silence is sometimes the  best answer.” 

“Live a good and honourable life, then when  you get older and think back, 
you'll enjoy it a second time.
 "  “Don't  interfere with somethin' that ain't bothering you  none.” 

“Timin' 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 diggin'.”  

"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 lotta that  comes from bad judgment.” 

“Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a  whole lot easier than putting' it back in.” 

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

“Live simply, love generously , care  deeply, speak kindly, and leave the rest to  God.” 

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