      Advice From A Old Texan

      Your fences need to be Horse-high, pig-tight
      And bull-strong. Keep skunks And lawyers At
      a distance. 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 jes' Happen Overnight. Forgive your enemies
      It messes up Their heads. Do not corner something
      That just might be meaner than you. It don't take
      A very big person To carry a grudge. You cannot
      unsay A cruel, Or unkind word. Every path has a
      few "cow pies ". . .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, honorable
      life. Then when you get older and think back,
      you'll enjoy it A second time. Don't interfere
      with somethin' That ain't botherin' You none.
      Timing 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 mornin'. 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 puttin' it back in. If you get to thinkin'
      you're a person Of some influence, Try orderin'
      somebody else's Dog around. Live simply. Love
      generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Carry a .45,
      leave the rest Up to God!
