Farmer’s Philosophy

Common Sense

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

Keep skunks and bankers 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 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, 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 bothering 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.
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.

Most times, it just gets down to common sense.

Live Your Dream

“By three methods we may learn wisdom:
First, by reflection, which is noblest;
Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and
Third by experience, which is the bitterest.”
Confucius

Lessons of LifeThis is your life.

Do what you love,
and do it often.
If you don’t like something,
change it.

Stop over analyzing,
life is simple.
All emotions are beautiful.

When you eat, appreciate every last bite.

If you don’t have enough time, stop watching TV.
If you are looking for the love of your life, stop;
they will be waiting for you when you start doing things you love.

Open your mind, arms, and heart to new things and people, we are united in our differences.

Ask the next person you see what their passion is, and share
your inspiring dream with them.

Travel often; Getting lost will help you find yourself.

Some opportunities only come once, seize them.
Life is about the people you meet, and the things you create with them,
so go out and start creating.

Life is short. Wear your passion and live your dream.
