Us modern people could pay attention to some of these axioms;
Keep skunks and bankers at a distance!
Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight, and bull-strong!
Life is simpler when you plow 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!
This is one of my favorites: The best sermons are lived, not preached!
I need to memorize this one: Most of the stuff people worry about ain’t never gonna’ happen anyway!
Don’t judge folks by their relatives!
And I saves the best for last: Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer! This old farmer has more, but he has to start plowing!
