    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.

    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.

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

    You cannot unsay a cruel word.

    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.

    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 judgment.

    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.

    When you wallow with pigs, expect to git dirty.

    May I add my personal favorites?

    P**s me off...pay the consequences.

    I'm not stressed out...you're just extremely annoying.

    If you're looking for trouble, I can offer you a wide selection.

    Abbey those were great!! :D

    This one I tell Nichole over and over and over again. I wonder if it will ever sink in?

    Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

    Mary, loved them!!!

    I got one :

    Don't cry over nothin' or someone will give you somethin' to cry about.

    Dynamite comes in small packages.

    Most of the stuff people worry about ain't never gonna happen anyway.
    That still leaves some of the stuff to worry about doesn't it? Wonder which is the stuff I should worry about and which is the stuff I shouldn't?

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

    If I'm being chased by Flubber bouncing will not help me either.

    Words that soak into your ears are whispered, not yelled.
    Except for HELP ME OUT OF THE POOL Those soaking words should be yelled.

    Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.
    C-4 pancakes and a good shot gun and you can just blow that stump to Hades.

    Forgive your enemies. It messes up their heads.
    So does putting glue in their shampoo.

    Don't sell your mule to buy a plow.
    Never EVER under any circumstances sell your mule - DUH.

    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.
    If you're ridin' ahead of the herd and you're the only cowboy; you're a lousy cowboy.

    Do not corner something that you know is meaner than you.
    Unless you have a dart gun or a Toblerone

    You cannot unsay a cruel word.
    Nope - that one is true.

    Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.
    Unless the question is Would you like a weekend without the children all expenses paid?

    Don't interfere with somethin' that ain't botherin' you none. I hope you interefere with a Websters dictionary, or an English class.

    Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a rain dance.
    Chicken livers have a lot to do with the outcome of a nekkid Warrior Mom dance. How coincidental.

    The easiest way to eat crow is while it's still warm. The colder it gets, the harder it is to swaller.
    If ya'll catches 'em raght up ina tree n eatz um onthe wang? They'z a might tastier an real ez to swaller. Make sure tho ya'll gits yer crow tag cuz crow season tain't but a few weeks now..ya hear?

    If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop diggin'.
    Personally I'd ask for a rope.

    The biggest troublemaker you'll probably ever have to deal with looks at you in the mirror every mornin'.
    Not true, she lives in WI. first initial D. The one in the mirror is an :angel2:

    Don't worry about bitin' off more'n you can chew; your mouth is probably a whole lot bigger'n you think.
    Who wrote this one? Andre the giant? I have a tiny little mouth and take lady like bites thank you very much. Probably the same uncouth person that chews with their mouth open. Yuk.

    Good judgment comes from experience, and a lotta that comes from bad judgment.
    Or...it could come from watching others mess up and taking really good notes.

    Remember: Don't squat with your spurs on.
    Unless you have an iron butt.

    Live a good, honorable life. Then when you get older and think back, you'll enjoy it a second time.
    This is a farce set out by the MAN - I say live life like there is no tomorrow because by the time I get to think back I'll have alzhiemers and won't remember a thing.

    If you get to thinkin' you're a person of some influence, try orderin' somebody else's dog around.
    Okay so all dog trainers are failures? Who writes this stuff?

    Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than puttin' it back in.
    That's what catnip is for. Like WOW.....man. Duuuuuude...the bag...

    The best sermons are lived, not preached.
    Okay again, so all pastors......?

    Keep skunks and politicians and lawyers at a distance.
    I had a pet skunk - Name was Stinker - he was cute. I know some polititians and lawyers - can't think of a name to put here that wouldn't get censored, and none of them were cute; nor would I have them for pets, but it did not say how far of a distance.

    It don't take a very big person to carry a grudge.
    I think small people would really resent this statement.

    If it don't seem like it's worth the effort, it probably ain't.
    But in the end our difficult child children can turn out to be decent people. Yeah that's the proper ending. UGH. :ashamed:

    It's better to be a has-been than a never-was.
    I can't even hear you right now those doughnuts look so delicious. Yeah, I got nothing.

    Meanness don't jest happen overnight.
    Oh yeah? Come to my house. Yesterday I was nice and this morning I woke up with PMDD. I'm an overnight sensation.

    When you wallow with pigs, expect to git dirty.
    When you wallow with pigs expect to get smashed - my hog weighed 390 lbs. Wouldn't matter if you were dirty - squished is squished.

    Star...leave it to you to always have a new perspective.:tongue:

    And, I am NOT the biggest troublemaker. I might rank in the top 10, though.

    Thanks for my pre-work giggle.

    I have two that I always used for my kids. To this day they remember them and tease me about them.

    Socks and shoes...you cannot lose. (They were constantly going outside in their socks. Either go barefoot or wear shoes.)

    Always wash from the top down. (Ever seen a kid wash a car for the first dozen times? They start at the darn bottom. Dummies.)
