Never name a pig you plan to eat.


Life ain’t about how fast you run, or how high you climb. It’s about how good you bounce.


Keep skunks and gossipers at a distance.


Life is simpler when you plow around the stumps.


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


Meanness don’t happen overnight.


To know how country folks are doing, look at their barns, not their houses.


Never lay an angry hand on a kid or an animal. It just ain’t helpful.


Teachers, Moms, and hoot owls sleep with one eye open.


Forgive your enemies. It messes with their heads.


Don’t sell your mule to buy a plow.


You can catch more flies with honey than vinegar… if you’re in to catchin’ flies.


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


You can’t unsay a cruel remark.


Every path has some puddles.


Don’t wrestle with pigs. You’ll get all muddy, and the pigs’ll love it.


The best sermons are lived, not preached.
